Valentine’s Day

Another Pink Saturday at Beverly’s How Sweet the Sound. This week has a romantic theme if we wish. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorites. I thought I would build a vignette and then make a mosaic for Mosaic Monday at Mary’s Little Red House.


I started on the coffee table with an engraved silver tray. I added some Waterford Champagne flutes, a wine bucket with Pottery Barn ice and Prosecco. Then a scattering of embroidered hearts (one embellished with crystals) and some chocolate. A pretty necklace and some Rod Stewart and Voila!L1020283








Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine’s Day!

So sorry that I missed you yesterday. It seemed like the day just ran away from me! But, with this being ♥Valentine's Day♥ what better time for me to stop by to see your Pink Saturday goodies.

It's been a long and dark winter up here near Canada so filling myself up with pink is my way on the weekend of chasing away the blues - not that blue isn't a nice color, too☺

I ♥ coming here. All the pink and all the girlie stuff just floods my brain and makes me want to do a happy dance right where I sit!

Thanks so much for sharing. After all, isn't sharing one of life's greatest pleasures?

♫Happy Valentine's Day♫

Hi Carol....Really nice Mosaic and valentines photos. It's been awhile since I visited you as CollectInTexas Gal, and it's been great to see you on this list. I'm here as SuKnitWitty which is my other blog. I didn't make it by for Pink Saturday...what a list that I'm commenting for 'TwoMemes'. Your photos are all beautiful....Sue

Loved your Valentine Mosaic! Hope you had a good Valentine! Charlene

I like the way you built the vignettes to photograph. And then there's Rod (though, to tell the truth, after seeing him in concert, I'd have to answer his question "Do You Think I'm Sexy" in the negative).

Your mosaic has some beautiful Valentine images! "All For Love", Joan
