Valentine's Day Apparent

As I was going through the seasonal closet  I really realized that  Valentine's Day, as  LOVEly   as it is,  brings  an end to all things  rosy red  for a time...  so I  decided to pull put the stops.  This is  be the last time to enjoy the  dining room twinkle lights 

I retired the  cool blue  china    and  brought forth the red transfer ware  yet again... just for  a  time... 
 my  decorative trees in the living room  are  getting    lovable update...   out came  the birds and hearts.. to   celebrate our dear  oldest granddaughter, 
Sweet Birdie! 
Birdie is 2 now
 and getting very grown up!!!
But  I  also   love these    medallions of her as a baby!

I am trying out different table arrangements  for  an upcoming    soiree'  in the planning stage...
I am thinking  this time around  the table needs to be somewhat simple  because we will need all the table space we can   have!
So now to the  living room!
 Still loving my  antler   candle holders

which go  so  charmingly well with  my handsome  stag   
Evening  casts  it's magic  with  the fading  light

 Our portrait of our  darling daughter  accents the  red  above the piano!  She is after all    our   marvelous and most beloved  valentine of all!!!

Make It Pretty
