When I think of Valentines I think of love, hearts, roses and my Mr. Charmer. This year, of all years I appreciate him more than ever. Mr. Charmer showed me what love really is! His love, strength, patience, caring and devotion is beyond anything I have ever know. His love is a wonderful thing!
It was so much fun pulling together our Valentine Love, hearts and roses vignette!
The hearts were so easy and quick to make, and I’ll share with you soon how I made them. All three hearts costs less than $2 to make and the fabric came from GW.
A close up, the pink heart in the middle was made from an old winter scarf.
I crochet two large roses and hung at each corner along with some pink and red yarn. The roses were very quick and I’ll share the pattern with you soon too.
On the mantel’s left side is one of the hearts I made, and very pretty rose picture that I found at GW and a winter scene pitcher with pink roses inside.
The mantels right side has the rose metal basket filled with the hearts, and the rose filled white ironstone pitcher just found at GW, and a pretty little rose petal heart in a white vase (a last year’s find). Both the pink and red roses were brought at Trader Joe’s, the red roses were $6, and the pink roses $5.
In the middle is a white tea/coffee pot just found at GW, a red rose and two pretty thrift store red/white tea cups.
I wish I could have red roses all year long on the mantel..
I feel happy when I look at the mantel, with the beautiful colors of white, red and pink. Just happy colors that make you come a alive.
Love is in the air and it is grand to be loved….
It is for me this year and I am wishing it for you too.
