Valentine Vignette



 Two adorable old-fashioned porcelain children are among my favorite knick knacks.

It just seemed right to add them to the front hall table Valentine vignette. 

They are so adorable.  I stood them on top of a rose-covered box which makes a pretty good look-out.


There are also heart-shaped plates on holders, adding to the festive red and white theme.

 Lots of red doilies are on the table, too.


There's a glass heart-shaped dish on its side.  One of my sisters painted one-stroke roses on it.

I love this glass heart!



There are still lots of Christmas candy canes leftover from the holidays so they are on the table top, too, available to anyone who wants a sweet crunchy snack.



The red and white canes match the color scheme!




WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE COLOR RED?

Oh, I just think that red is such an alive color! When you think about the beauty of a red sunrise or sunset, they are the most amazing of all! I love your hearts and the red/white theme for your home during this season. Since my hubby's birthday is on Valentine's Day, I always do something special, like baking a heart-shaped cake, and we both enjoy that!

Good morning Susan! I never used to like the color red. My mom dressed me in red and then when I had that color thing done years ago (remember that?) I wasn't supposed to wear red unless it had more pink tones in it. So, I kind of took red out of my life. Now I really like it, especially for holidays. I love clear red glass. You have inspired me, maybe I'll do a blog post on it.
Anyway, I love the painted clear glass heart in your photos. Great blog!!! YES, time for Valentine decorating!
Love,
Linda

My bedroom is painted red, it's always bright and cheery but it is a left over from my son when he lived at home he always had the bigest room because he always had more stuff than anyone else, he still does but now it's in the shed his wife does want all of his stuff just too much.

Red is such a cheerful, upbeat color! Our everyday china has strawberries on it, so red is part of our daily life!:-)

Our snowman decorations are still in place for awhile. It will be fun to pull out the Valentine things in a week or two.

Your porcelain figurines are darling!

I love all of your Valentine's pieces! You're right about the cant canes...I never thought of that before. I love the color red for it's beauty and power. When I was a teenager everything had to be red or peach. I've branched out a little since then but those are still my favorites.

I love red tops, sweaters, and I also love that plate with one stroke roses. This is a cute display. You should be an interior decorator. Oh you ARE.

I love you red Susan. I think red reminds me of life. Red is the heart. I like the blue red better than the orange red. Very nice decorations.
