Pink Hearts, Cards and Roses

 When February comes near, my mind goes straight to Valentine's Day!
I started decorating a tad for this holiday.
Pink roses and a beautiful card with a heartfelt sentiment from my true love~
that is my desire for Valentine's Day
 This vintage valentine came from my 90 year old neighbor Evelyn's estate sale.
I got 3 tiny valentines that day and they are very special to me.
Roses, roses and more roses.. 
I pull out fabrics and linens that remind of valentine's day,
like this linen checkerboard with cabbage roses.
I threw a layer of white lace underneath to make it even more romantic.
This year I made a valentine tree out of metal chippy pink hearts
and hung them from winter white branches.
 Soft and simple and so easy.
 I save all of my romantic and special cards, and then display them 
when the time comes around again.
Every year I get to enjoy them all over again. 
 I think they look so pretty gathered together.
They remind me of our years together so far, and our loving life.
Two of my vintage valentines sit on top of the bucket holding the tree.
 Sometimes I make my cards....
but when I buy them I am attracted to glitter and mushy words.
This yellow and pink teapot feels valentiney to me!
The little blue bird card is my favorite valentine from Mr. Maison Decor~so far.
It has tiny pearls on it, and the most romantic words inside.
He is one romantic guy and tells me every day how much he loves me.
I know I am lucky...and he picks out nice cards too!
Pinks of all shades, I love them all.
Pops of pink all over the room!
Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?
I'll be posting more on one of my favorite times of year.
Until next time~
