REDNESDAY-Valentine Reds

Don't you just love the graphics that Sue makes for her Rednesday party each week? That one above is one of my all-time favorites!
Well, after much procrastination, I finally decided that the safest place for my Valentine's Day collection is on top of the green cabinet. Surely Cupcake can't jump up there!

Our little valentine tree.
I bought these chenille girls a few years ago from Ebay, but I added their little heart wands.
Awwww, lookie who's sitting under the valentine tree! I just had to have this pair, because Mr. Old Glory is a musician and he plays guitar in his band.

Mr. & Mrs. Old Glory
Sittin' Under A Tree......

One of my favorite valentines from my collection. Sue, this one always makes me think of you!
LISTEN FELLER.....!
I think this one is my absolute favorite. Maybe!
This is a cabinet in the kitchen. I would have loved to show more than just the cabinet, but there are groceries all over the kitchen table next to it. The sun came out, so I dropped what I was doing in order to get a decent shot. I've got my priorities straight! That doily decoration that our daughter made in grade school always gets hung on the glass, along with that heart that I made several years ago hanging from the handle, and a new addition is that polka dotty garland that Holly at Cutie Pie Cottage made. It's there ALL the time now!
If you would like to see more reds, please visit Sue at It's A Very Cherry World!

It's hard to resist vintage watering cans, let alone vintage valentines with vintage watering cans. Looking very festive, Carol!

Your Valentines are just darling and I always enjoy any opportunity to see your lovely home and the way you have items displayed.

You have some SWEET little things! I love the vignette atop the green cupboard(and the GREEN cupboard itself!)--I love your tree and that snappy striped box it sits next to.
Your little sitting couple are just adorable, too. :)
Happy REDnesday!

Deborah J.Haines said...

I do consider all of the ideas you've presented in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for starters. May you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

Very festive! I seldom decorate for Valentine's Day but am slowly collecting items for next year. In the meantime, you may enjoy seeing this over the top display--I love it--that a local resident does on her porch. The cherub is decorated for EVERY holiday!

p.s. clever use of old handerkerchiefs in one of the photos
