White... With a Touch of Pink

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I'm sure many of you are up to some crafting and planning for St. Valentine's day.  I love this holiday because it brings romance to light, while keeping my mind off the cold and snow. 
White is my favorite color for decorating, as it is for many of you.  It is timeless, classic and romantic, and allows the addition of accent colors as the seasons and holidays change.  Right now...a subtle touch of pink.
Thought I'd share some touches of pink in our home against a romantic white background.  I'll enjoy visiting your homes while linking to White Wednesday,  Show and Tell Friday and Pink Saturday this week.

A Valentine for my valentine:

Some tags showcasing my favorite accent colors against white, along with a glittered heart in a tarnished bowl.  Hope this cherub on the right doesn't have a 'heavy' heart:

These sola shell flowers from a craft website are so pretty and can be used year-long for decorating:

How are you bringing romance into your homes?

Beautiful pictures, Susan! I love the wedding pictures framed in the pink and white and your rosettes are so pretty in the apothecary jar. I agree with you on white as a background to showcase various colors and I love pastels, too. It looks like you are ready for Valentine's Day!

XO,

Your romantic whites with subtle pinks are so gorgeous! I adore the Valentine for your Valentine! Who is the beautiful couple on the front of the card??? The rosette is so delicate and feminine looking ... I'm going to have to visit that Etsy site! Thanks for sharing and providing lots of romantic inspiration!

Pictures of pure loveliness, love them all. Your choice of pink in such a soft shade, a hint of blushing pink is perfect. What a beautiful and creative card you have of you and your love. I am so going to have to borrow your rosettes in the jar idea! I love that. Thanks for sharing your beautiful treasures.

xoxo,
Ellen

Happy Pink Saturday Susan Sweetie...
What gorgeous pink shares. I love your pink and white combinations.

I haven't started Valentine's crafting, so I am way behind. Your decorating is beautiful. Especially the heart box with the papers and doilies and embellishments. What a beautiful job you did. It just screams "ROMANCE". I love it.

Your homemade Valentine is exquisite. I love the paper that you chose, and your wedding picture is the perfect embellishment. I love the way you photographed it next to the Eiffel Tower. How romantic that is.

I am Country Wings in Phoenix, your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop over and say hello. I would love to have you visit. I love meeting new friends and sharing our day to day lives along the way. I would be thrilled to have you follow me as well.

Have a gorgeous weekend sweetie. Country hugs, Sherry
