Pink Saturday and Valentines Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! It's time to par-tay for pink Saturday and Valentine's Day, so I am joining all the girls over at Beverly's of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/2012/02/-valentines-pink-saturday-february-4-2012-.html. I have shared some of these photos before, but I have some new followers, and thought I would share them again. 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.





Please help yourself to a chocolate! There are more goodies on the table for you.





Aren't these cupcakes yummy looking!





These are just too pretty to eat, but help yourself to one!




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 is a sweet one, also from 1910.






This is one of my favorties. I wish I had a pretty window like this! This is a Tuck's 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 is darling with these little chicks tucked in her apron!





Love this image I found on the internet.





I hope you enjoyed your visit today, and please take a little Valentine favor home with you!




Don't forget to stop over at Beverly's for more pink Valentine fun!


I have just been invited to another seasonal par-tay over at http://thetablescaper.blogspot.com/2012/02/seasonal-sunday-87-dish-storage.html

Thank you for the invitation!

Hi Debbie,
Such pretty pinks! I'm more into pink than red too but this Valentines Day, I am using more red than pink for a change. The cards are adorable and so nice compared to those we see in the stores these days. Thanks for sharing and have a delightful Valentine Pink Saturday weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Happy Pink Saturday Debbie Sweetie...
Oh what a gorgeous share of Valentines today. I so enjoyed scrolling through just browsing them. I too love the woman on the Valentine with chickies in her apron. How precious that is.

The little girl standing on her tippy toes peering is precious as well. You have quite a collection. Don't you wonder how family could ever part with these treasures when you find them though?

I enjoyed my cupcake. Thank you so kindly for sharing. I am your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next. Have a beautiful weekend sweet friend. Happy Valentine's Day. Country hugs, Sherry

Hi Debbie...I saw this on Seasonal Sundays and decided to drop over and so glad I did. What a beautiful blog you have. There are so many wonderful things I want to see.
Loved all your Valentines. They are just so remininscent of my childhood days. All your Valentine foods look so delicious and your buffet table is just delightful. I just enjoyed your display so much. I am now following you. I am a pretty new blogger myself. And I also was linked up to Pink Saturday. Oh my gracious how I love pink!
