Season for Love ...

Several weeks ago I decorated the house for Valentine's Day.
 
It's the season for love and hearts ... 

 
My heart wreath made from layers of silk organza fabric with vintage paper roses. 


The roses are from book pages and edged with ink.


A sweet Valentine basket holds a pink embossed dish with ivory ribbon.
 

This round scalloped edge mirror is the perfect centerpiece for rose scented candles.

 
"Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart."
 
 
So much sparkle ...
 
 
I just love the reflections the glass jars cast.
 

Hearts dangle from a wrought iron mirror in the parlor.

 
 
They have even made their way to the chandelier.
 
 
I've dressed up my lantern with pink silk flowers.


A mercury glass bird is perched on top waiting for spring to arrive  :-)


Vintage heart ornaments are strung across a faux whitewashed window.


Have you set the mood with decor that radiates romance?  Wishing you a week filled with lots of love!

Good Morning Donna,
You have decorated your home beautifully. The pink heart is just gorgeous. Traditionally we think of red for Valentine's Day, but I love the gentle colour of pink....so lovely.
Have a fabulous Valentine's week.
Best Wishes
Daphne

Your romantic Valentine's decorations are perfect, Donna, and I love the mirrors that you used. The pink silk organza provides a beautiful contrast with the paper flowers--I really like that. I hadn't decorated much for Valentine's Day in times past, but this year I did!

Karen said...

All of your Valentine's Day decorations are so sweet! I love it all! xx

The wreath is gorgeous, I'd love to try to make something similar, but these days my hands are best suited to arts and crafts on my computer :-)

Your photos are lovely too, those subdued colours are very romantic.
