Waiting on Valentine's Day!


Happy Valentine's Day!

This tea setting is in honor of my sweet Aunt Daphene, who passed away last night.  She loved dishes and she loved tea time.  I'll always remember the sweet words of encouragement you have always given me and all the decorating and entertaining you inspired in me.  I can't wait to see you again someday!  I love you, Aunt Phene!



I think of cupcakes at Valentine's, so this apron was perfect.  A gift from my Mom.  Thanks, Mom!


A little Valentine's in the entry.
My Aunt Daphene Tea Setting!

Filling the curio up with red and pink!

Whenever I see the colors of red and pink, I think of my bedroom as a young teen.  My Aunt Phene made my bedspread and curtains for my room.  I can still see it and wish I still had it.  The top of the bedding was a quilted red and pink rose print with a red ruffled skirt all the way around.  She made a special pillow cover and window treatments.  I had red and pink beads over my door. (70's) and a red inflatable chair.  I can't forget about the red and pink furry feet that I hung on my wall.  Evidently, the furry feet were popular then.  They matched my large red fur throw rug by my bed.  Thank you for making my room so special! I bet your new home in heaven is absolutely beautiful!

Oh your dear Aunt's tea set is gorgeous. What a beautiful post filled with pretties for Valentine's Day. Love the apron and your curio is so pretty with the red and pink.
So enjoyed hearing about your bedroom décor growing up. It sounds darling.
Have a blessed day.

Thanks, Celestina! I sure wish we would have had a camera when I was growing up. All I have is my memories that I can remember. :)

Thank you, Traci! You are so sweet. I wish more would wear hats like that, too! I tried wearing a hat one day to church, but felt way to noticeable since no one else was. Haven't tried it since. :)

Beverly, I used to have this same curio cabinet. One part broke on it, so I gave it away, and now I regret doing so, because I've never seen anything as nice as that. Your valentine décor definitely says "love."
