This was the everyday centerpiece on my dining room table. I used another centerpiece for my Valentin'es dinner & will share pics of it in a Tablescape Thursday post soon.
I don't know why the coloring is so off in this photo...weird! But it's some stacked plates w/ a Valentine theme. I didn't have enough small stuff to make it full so I filled in places w/ votives full of candy.
Reaaalllllly not happy w/ photo & wouldn't even share it except I want to WOW you w/ the improvement I will make this year. ;o) It's going to be much better...I promise. Or you'll neevr see the pic. *grins*
I put a Valentine given to hubby's father when he was a boy (it's dated 1945) in a compote full of hearts, under a cloche. The table needs some fabric to soften it up some....why do I only see details like that in a pic? Is it just me? You wouldn't believe how blogging has helped me w/ my decor. I have the ability to put on rose-colored glasses & see things the way I envision them being....not how they actually are. Photos force me to take off those glasses & see the room/vignette for how it really looks.
My kitchen window. You can just barely make out the bottom of my pans that hang above it. Get a good look 'cause next week they'll be gone. ;o) We recently bought an iron piece to hug the ceiling & we are turning it into a pot rack. I cannot wait! I HATE the pot rack hanging over teh sink but it had to go somewhere when we put up a cabinet over the island.
Coleson broke this bell dome a few months ago. I still miss it! :o(
The mantel was cute but now seems unfinished to me. I'm not a "less is more" kind of gal & it just seems like it needs a little sumthin' sumthin'.
