Show and Tell and Partying With Laurie

Laurie is having a Valentine’s Day party! Go to her blog for a fabulous post showcasing her flair and personality, as well as her creativity and skill in using graphic software.

Visit Cindy at My Romantic Home for links to other Show and Tell participants.

My table setting for Valentine’s Day is not very feminine in consideration for two boys in their late teens (plus my brother) who will be at the table. See yesterday’s post for the tablesetting details.

In a corner in the dining room is a small bachelor’s chest with a small display:

A closer look shows heart-shaped containers including a shell box from St. Thomas, US V.I. brought by my brother and his wife.

On the red paper hearts are shells made into hearts from my mother.

A Valentine’s card I received from my mother many years ago is framed in a white metal frame.

The living room coffee table has four heart frames with family photos and a small heart dish with pastel mints.

In the kitchen the top of the microwave and a small shelf display Valentine cards:

In the entrance a small table displays a small framed heart of dried flowers, and a heart pomander brought from Italy by a friend.

The colors of the two items coordinate well with the ceramic vase holding gilt paper and blue silk flowers.

Under the table, a cement angel from the summer garden rests in front of a round mirror.

Thank you for stopping by today. I would love to ready your comment!
