Vintage French Plant Stand

I bought this french plant stand a few months ago at an auction.
I had never seen one like it. I
love it and it fits perfectly in my
bedroom. It has that nice
, little worn look about it and some of
the wire is wavy. I just need to find more
plants for it.

Valentine Decor

How cute is this for Valentine's Day? Tall vintage screens
and a heart floral candle holder. Ivy, pink roses and
candle globes have been added. This would be perfect
in a vintage style home for Valentine's.

Enjoy Decorating

I constantly hear people say, " I don't know how to decorate, or where do I
start?" Well, there is one thing to remember you never will unless you try.
Always start with one main focus, then let it lead you to the next.
For instance, in the picture above, I started with the sheet music
( it is the Wedding Song also known as Where there is Love).
This was from sung at my wedding 30 years ago, so it has a lot of sentimental
value to me. How perfect to display for Valentine's Day.
Then next I wanted to make sure that it was noticed, so what better way than on a
silver tray. Then I looked for something given to me as a wedding gift,
crystal candlesticks (that's romantic).
Then I placed the other items to complete the
arrangement. As you will see I didn't put tall candles (but you could)
I placed a small battery tea light, and laid one on it's side.
This adds visual interest leading the eye to be more observant.
Anyone could place them both standing.
So get busy and create your own little vignette and enjoy.

   Valentine's Day is just around  the corner.  I love to Decorate for the seasons and holidays.  In blogging, I have found that the sites with pictures are the ones I seem to like the most.  They inspire me to be creative.   Valentine's Day the holiday for love and romance.  I have been married to my wonderful husband for 30 years.

 Decorate your home for Valentine's Day.
Show the one that you LOve just how special the
really are.

This is something I made using vintage linens.  I hand appliqued a wool heart and then adorned it
with silk ribbon embroidery, heart and key.
