Valentines and Roses

Valentine's Day seems like the perfect time to enjoy my Old Country roses china. For some reason I don't use it very often but it sure looks pretty on the window shelf in my kitchen.



I made the wreath for Valentine's Day last year. I just twisted concrete reinforcement wire into a heart shape and wound a garland around it....adding a few extra sprigs of flowers. I liked it so well that I hung it in a closet so I could use it again. The adorable birdhouse used to decorate the front door for Valentine's Day, but I like it better here.




I scattered some dried roses to soften the effect and add interest. Pretty soon I should be picking fresh ones again.






I have enjoyed sitting at the table in the morning, eating my breakfast, and doing the crossword puzzle with this pretty reminder of one of my favorite holidays.



Thank you for visiting and...


Happy Valentine's Day to you!

  17. I love that collection and display. I have not seen those wire holders that you have the cups and saucers on. What a great idea. I could use something like that and bet I could find something like it on line. It would help utilize space.
