Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

Hi, I'm so glad you have come by today.  
As you can see my table is ready for our Valentine's dinner.
I have set a red and pink Valentine's table, with a couple of hearts, candles and cupids in the middle of the table for the centerpiece and an album of vintage valentines for us to enjoy while we eat.
These were my mother's when she was a little girl.
I have set the table with my newly thrifted dinnerware.  
They are Bowrings Celebrate Life dishes.
The dinner plates are black and white transferware and they are all sitting on a large doily that's paired with a pink place mat.
The mugs have sweet little messages in them.

It's a beautiful day outside, the sun is shining brightly through the windows,and the love songs are playing quietly in the background.  I love violin music, it's probably my favorite, my husband likes saxophone music.
I made chocolate chip heart cookies, one for each of us.

Here's wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day my friends.


I will be busy this week with my fireplace makeover and I'll be painting the living room and kitchen, too.  I am very excited to get these two rooms painted.  I also have another project on the go, it's a little different, I hope you will like it.



Awwww, love the heart shapped cookies!

I love the little black numbered calendar thingy you have on your table--just wonderful. It is so nice to have the album of your mom's cards. My mom had one with bunches of different cards--Christmas, birthday, etc I hope my sis kept it! She live far away and I have not visited her for a long.........time!

Hope you give us some sneak peaks of your painting---when I get painting I don't want to slow down even to eat....

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your hubby! You have made a cozy, lovely table. The scrapebook looks like my Mother's that she had in grade school. The valentines from back then were so cute.
