Love on Wednesdays


Suzanne at Colorado Lady is hosting a photography meme for this month, and she's calling it Love on Wednesdays in February. She's an expert on showing love. Come join in the fun!

This is the glass table by my front door. It's actually just a piece of thick glass placed on top of two piers. The heart plate is a recent purchase from The Home Store. I've had the red wired basket with the heart-shaped handles for years. I filled it with red and white mints so that whoever comes in can enjoy a bit of Love.


At the other end of the table is a sweet heart-shaped dish I won as a door prize. The roses on the dish are hand painted by the giver showing Love.


Let me give you a closer look at those hand painted roses. You might notice the small pink and the small red hearts inside this dish. Those are the ones that Claudie sent me, showing Blogger Love. The reflection to the right comes from the glass blocks that Johnny put in beside the front door. That was a labor of Love. They show up better in the previous picture.

Did you notice that EMPTY vase? It really needs some Love flowers, doesn't it?

What pretty vignettes you show today! Hope your lovely vase doesn't remain empty too much longer. (smile)

Those hand painted roses are beautiful. :) And the red white mints are a nice idea, however I'd probably never get my 3 year old out of your house. Hard peppermint candy is so his downfall. LOL

What a beautiful hand painted dish!

Sorry it has been so long since I've made a blog visit. With so much going on, I'm way behind. Well, I'll be a lady of leisure in just over a week, so will have lots of time to visit then.
