Be Mine, Pink Saturday Valentine!

Happy Pink Saturday Valentine's Day everyone!
I'd like to show you some more pink from around my house. Of course some of it has been decorated for Valentine's Day.

I absolutely adore these heart shaped dessert plates. I have four and hubby and I have searched for a year to find more - no luck! They are, of course, perfect for Valentine's Day, but I use them year round for special treats and guests.

My Valentine mantel - lots of candles - candlesticks and a variety of glass containers filled with seas glass and beads. I used tiny white lights and looped and twirled red and pink wired ribbon with hearts around them. I love using the lights all year - they're not just for Christmas!

This cherry table sits in my front entry. I always decorate it for holidays and seasons to compliment the mantel in our family room. I usually display these two vintage vases in Spring and Summer. Both flaunt gorgeous pink roses. On the vase to the left, cherubs dance among pink climbing roses. The vase on the right was hand painted by a dear old family friend. She was a master at painting these soft roses and leaves.
Some red heart foil garland is twirled among the wedding pictures, vases, candles, and snifters of sea shells.

This painted chest rests under the hall table. It's hand painted with roses and has a vintage appeal - though it is not. I bought it new about 20 years ago. And - no, I didn't paint it!

This tall rosy painted umbrella stand sits on the floor next to the table and holds an overflowing bouquet of pink Ranunculus!
