Valentine Parties and Pink Saturday

Happy Valentines Day everyone! It's a party over at Lauries, and Joan's at http://thepottingshed-anythinggoeshere.blogspot.com/2010/02/vintage-valentine-card-party.html Thank you ladies for hosting these great parties! I'm also participating in Pink Saturday at Beverly's of How Sweet The Sound. thanks Beverly! Come into my dining room, and see my valentine vignette. I love to decorate this buffet for each season. I tend to like shades of pink and cream/white for Valentines Day. Not too much into the bright reds. Here is a gorgeous vintage valentine that my dear mother-in-law made for me a few yrs ago. You can click on any picture to make it larger. She used a newer reproduction fold out card. I love the fabric she used for the background. Next to that is another reproduction fold up card. I just love cherubs!

The sweet little pink doll in this picture, was an e-bay find. She is in great condition, nice and clean, and I just love her bright blue eyes. The chocolate pot was also an e-bay find.



To the far right is a darling little pin cushion I made from a silver sugar bowl. This seems to be getting very popular these days. People are loving the creams and whites mixed with silver.


Have a chocolate, and on the table are some more goodies for you!





You have to try one of these pretty cupcakes. Ummmm, Yummy!









Don't these look to pretty to eat??


Here is a collection of vintage postcard Valentines. I just love these, and have collected a few over the yrs. Love the hat on this one! This has been used, and dates 1910 on the back. The card isn't showing it's pretty vintage patina in this photo.











This one also has been postmarked 1910.










I just adore this one! I wish I had a window like this! This is a Tucks card.










This one has a postmark of 1910, and doesn't show the pretty patina on it. It is addressed to Miss Anna Drost, Rice lake, Wisconsin.



This one I found on the internet. I just love it!



Thanks so much for coming by. Please take a little heart favor home with you! Please don't forget to visit Laurie, Joan and Beverly to visit the other participants! Have a wonderful Valentines Day!

Debbie, what a pretty pink post! From the lovely limoge on your sideboard to the vintage dolls to the goodies (real and the precious pin cushions) to the postcards that remind me so much of my father (he saved my grandmother's for me), I enjoyed this post so much. Thanks for sharing...

Hi Debbie, I'm crazy about the pink cut-glass covered candy dish. I did manage to take my eyes off it long enough to see the cute little tea cup sitting next to it.
Happy Pink Saturday and V's day~

Debbie..I love everything! I think we like the same thing, but of course out chosen blog names pretty much show that. Still, the old fashioned Valentines...the little hand made hearts, the tiny precious statues...all just wonderful!
