This little cottage shelf hangs in our entry & I love to decorate it for the changing seasons. Right now it is showcasing my collection of porcelain hinged boxes in honor of Valentine's Day.

Top shelf has an iron bank of Mutt & Jeff that belonged to my sweet Grandmother next to a picture of her in a pressed back chair ~ she looks to be about a year old.

Next shelf has a perfume bottle hinged box & a picture of me taken at the State Fair of Texas in 1956 on a stuffed bear ~ I do NOT look like a happy camper! Also a couple of heart themed Vday hinged boxes.

The bottom shelf contains some of my favorites.
Limoges porcelain hinged heart box

Love the pink roses on this one ~ thought Connie would like it, too!

I'll try to share a few more of my heart & Valentine themed items all through the week!
