Valentine's Party

Laurie from Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie is the hostess of today's Valentine Party. I'm playing along to show some Blogger love!

I decorated a bit for Valentine's Day this year. I did want to attend Laurie's first-ever party, so I put a little red on my foyer table entrance.

The crystal compote contains some candy for visitors (granchildren) who like to nibble on sweets.

This pretty plate was purchased last year.

The little red candle holder is heart-shaped, and I got it from one of those $ stores last year.

Showing you some love = having a smile.

❤ ❤ Happy Valentine's Day! ❤ ❤

Sally, I love your little plate. Do you know, I think that Pat (Back Porch Musings) might have some mates to your plate! You need to go over there and negotiate with you. They are little bowls, but honestly, I think they match!

I was over in Brandon the other day, and I missed YOU! I went right past Mimi's, and I almost went in there to eat. But it wouldn't have been the same without you. That was such fun. Can't wait for our lunch with Claudie!

Happy Valentine's Day to you and Johnny!

I meant negotiate with "her". D'oh!

Sally-I think I have the same little candle holder from the same place :) Loved your cartoon--Isn't the truth about the ring tones? When I call my son, his phone plays "somewhere over the rainbow" and he doesn't even know I have a blog! Happy Valentine's Day!

Sally, that little plate is so pretty. Just the right addition of red for V'tine day. How nice of you to put out candy for the grandchildren. I'm afraid I would eat all of it before the grands showed up! I always love your cartoons. Thank you so much for joining the party. laurie

Hi Sally,
loved your valentine plate and candle holder. I wanted to join but didn't put anything out this year, so I will enjoy yours and seeing what other ladies have done.
The flowers on the table are also beautiful.
Happy Valentines Day to you.

It must be so nice to be settled in your home and be able to do a little decorating. I love what you did on your table. Sooo pretty! Happy Valentine's Day to you and your hubby. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I wish I lived closer to you. I would love to share my cookies with you :>)

Beautiful little plate! Beautiful little post!

Jeanne said...

Hello Sally, your pretty red plate is so sweet. I really haven't decorated for valentines this year. I still have time. Bill and I do exchange valentines some things. Not anything big. It is a lover's holiday. I love the little red heart from the $ store. They have lots of fun things in those stores.

Happy Valentines Day Sally.
Hugs, xoxo Jeanne.

Hi Sally...well, it looks like you have more Valentine's decor that I do! :) I love the plate and I also noticed, as did Sheila, that Pat of Back Porch Musings has some matching pieces! Great taste, you two!
