Flowers and a Beautiful Saint

St. Valentine's day is the perfect time to celebrate LOVE.  I can't help but add some romantic details in our dining room, and what is more romantic than pink roses? 


The dining room did indeed get a new coat of paint under the chair-rail (as I hinted at in my last post).  I used a mix of leftover paint, and am happy with the soft gray-ish result. 

It contrasts better with the dark mahogany pieces.  I'll show more of the wall later, but today I'm sharing all the little Valentine touches before the holiday has come & gone. 


a simple request




And of course I had to display our St. Therese figure amongst all these roses. 
Humble and lovely...

A gift tag from Rosemary, saved from last year:

Fun with papers & boxes, and another lavender heart sachet:

Hope you are all enjoying this romantic time.  See you at:

Very beautiful. I really like the contrast with the dark mahogany sideboard.

Love the figure of St. Therese, my favorite saint.

Your rose vases and my rose teapot would be a great Valentine match! I like your idea of the long shelf on the top of the cabinet. Happy Valentine's Day to you!♥♫

Happy Pink Saturday Susan Sweetie...
Oh how beautiful your wall color is behind your mohagany pieces. So pretty. I love the mixture. Sometimes our experiments turn out the best.

Love all the flowers, your little tags with BE MINE. So darn cute. I love that look. Simple and elegant, mixed together.

Loved seeing your St. Therese figure as well. She is the crowning glory.

Have a glorious weekend sweetie. Many country hugs and Happy Valentine's Day too, Sherry
