Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,
So what cha been up??
Making any Valentine's Day plans?
Sure hope so..........
Sure hope so..........
Have to say we love Valentine's Day or really any
excuse to celebrate, for that matter!! lol
We usually get Italian take out, or I make Italian food,
have a nice dinner by candlelight with some sparkling
cider, give each other Valentines and watch one of our
favorite movies....... "You've Got Mail".
This has become our tradition because typically race
week or something at Daytona 500 is going on and
everything anywhere near there is mobbed, so we
aren't into mob scenes, so we prefer staying home......
Since it is on Saturday, we might just watch 2 movies,
one on Friday and one on Saturday as I have seen a
trailer for a movie called "christian mingle"
and it is a comedy and looks like it is gonna be
a riot, so might try and see if we can find it to
rent on Amazon.....................
Hope you are looking forward to some Valentine's
plans as well.............. even if it isn't with your
sweetheart, a friend or other family member
would do nicely too...............cause after all,
we love them too!! lol
Thought I would share some more of my Valentines
decorating with you since it is gonna be here soon.
Here's our coffee table. Now have to say I always use
shades of red in Winter, so that makes it easy to
decorate for Valentines day, so used my red roses,
and a lil heart shaped dish, it did have candy in it
, but we emptied it just before I took the pictures. lol
Since I used some pink along with the red on the
mantle decided to use my lovely Jesus and children
figurine that was a gift from a friend/neighbor many
years ago, and always love to use some royal blue
this time of year as well.
Here's a better look at the figurine.
Thought he was perfect for Valentines Day!
Cause as the song goes
"Jesus Loves the little children"
and of course, the big children too!!
Just added an older version of a life beautiful magazine
to pick up the red and rose theme.
Love how the collages look, but not all that
crazy about making them...... But pleased about it
The lil girl statue is in the dining room, and the vignette
is a small table beside the sofa, and the pillows are the
same on the sofa and big chair. I put a Happy Valentines
banner on both red pillows. Just stuck in on with double
This is my serving cart between the family and dining
room. See there is a heart in there, it is Alabaster
given to me by another friend along with the cardinal
Added the key which I already had, and the pocket watch
I found in some of my late mother-in-laws jewelry.
Liked the touch of blue from the porcelain ball.
Same pic but with a filmgrain affect, thought it gave it
a old look.......................
From the other direction.
The whole vignette. Found this storage
box some years back and liked it be-
cause it had 2 different shades of red,
which works well for my colors this
time of year.
The picture in the frame is an actual photograph
of our mantle a few years back, that I put a
posterized affect on and printed, then put in
this frame. This was the best pic I could get
cause of all the reflections, if I get a chance I
might try taking it with out the lights on and
see how it comes out................can you see
why I liked the blue porcelain ball there....
actually I had it there first, and then the pic
just wound up making it look planned.
The large pic is of the breakfast bar, and the candle
is from the dining room. the rest are located in the
family room ................and the candy was just a
throw in from another Valentine's years back cause
I thought I only need 4 pics, so couldn't find a 5th
that looked right, so the candy fit the bill.....lol
well, sort of................lol
Well, hope you have a good
rest of the week,
