My Little Pink Tree Decorated for Valentines Day

Hello friends. I hope you're all keeping warm this Winter season. Once February arrives, we are decorating our homes with hearts and cherubs for Valentines Day

My hubby had gifted me this pretty pink iridescent tree at Christmastime and I have kept it out to decorate for this special occasion.

It's not decorated quite the way I had planned, with snow storms and my kitchen is disarray, I couldn't get out to Michaels. So I simply used what I had, a few hearts and pink roses. This is how it turned out. 

I used it this week as a centerpiece for my Valentines Tea.

Hope you like it! To see more, please click on the link which will take you to my Valentines Tea Party.  

Happy Valentines Day!

Look What Just Flew In ~ Christmas Birdies

Hello again Christmas loving friends~

I didn't think I would be sharing something so soon but I received a late Christmas present and I just had to share it with you.

My son who knows my love for birdies, especially goldfinches and cardinals, sent me these beautiful ornaments. They are made of blown glass with glitter on them.

I have never seen a cardinal here on the Island but I think they are beautiful with their red plumage.

I had taken the tree down earlier and then these arrived. 

My plan was to keep the mantel decorated with the evergreen and candles until the end of January so my little birds are perched in the garland and I can enjoy them at least for a little while. I just love them!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my little feathered friends. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

After the Holidays and Happy New Year!

Hello my Christmas blogging friends~

"I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar every month." ~ Harlan Miller

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas with family and friends. 

All is quiet here and the tree has been taken down and put away for another year. I always leave my tree up till after New Years but I was anxious to get the room back in order again.

I wanted to show you the darling tree my hubby gifted me with. 

I'm sorry the lighting is so poor but you can see it is pale pink and it has an allover iridescent sheen to it. I can't wait to decorate it with something special for next year, maybe even for Valentines Day!

I spotted these wee trees on sale for half price at one of our hardware stores and I know exactly what I want to do with them.

One I will decorate for my tea parties and the other I will glue into the boot. 

The boot had held a fabulous floral arrangement for my mother who is in a nursing home. It had beautiful red roses sprinkled with glitter and real pine and other evergreens as well as a glittered ornament and berries. I plan to glue the tree into the boot and decorate it for my mother for next year. So, I've got a few little projects to work on for next Christmas.

What will you be working on? Do you have any projects in mind?

This will be my last post here for a while. Should I happen to find something Christmasy I will share it with you. Meanwhile, I wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Till next time, I am ....
