I was looking for a little Valentine’s table inspiration, feeling uninspired and a little blue with the cold, gray weather outside.
My mother-in-law has been cleaning out her house to put on the market, and ran across this sweet Valentine given to her mother sometime prior to 1923, when she was still a ‘Miss’.
She also unearthed this cheery tea towel
that has a blooming garden of flowers on it.
Made in Germany, this three-dimensional Valentine
has a pair of lovebirds and a bird delivering
Love’s Greeting from Willie Nash :)
In need of blooming flowers,
I decided to cut some camellias
to brighten my spirits & bring indoors.
You never know when or
where you’ll find love. . .
or table inspiration. :)
My husband’s grandmother’s china
has birds in flight along with flowers. . .
Two things that always boost my spirits!
Back in July, I found a 95-piece-bouquet
of flatware, in search of a Flower Fix.
At a bargain price of what the 14 knives alone
would have been at Replacements.
And the floral equivalent of paying for a single rose
and receiving 2 dozen long-stemmed ones instead. :)
Birds have flown in on a camellia-filled pitcher
and on teapots to nest on the table.
And Meringue Nests from World Market
seemed appropriate for a lovebirds table
for Valentine’s Day.
Quick to put together and easily filled with fruit,
whipped cream, lemon curd, or chocolate.
Or you can find a recipe to make
your own meringue nests, here
