Valentine's Day is almost HERE!

 I received a sweet package and  note shortly before the holidays and never got a chance to share the beautiful gift I got from doing an ART SWAP.  Sweet and Talented Alison of Alison By the Bay gifted me with this........

I've been decorating with it ever since! This is just PERFECT for Valentine's Day AND year-round!!
She even put my store logo / blog name on it!! Thanks so very much ALISON, I'll treasure it always!

You girls should check out her store Allison By the Bay here for these beautiful hearts and more terrific items!

My new vintage lamp is a recent estate sale find.......

These pink roses just make my heart sing!!!!

Recently I was stalking visiting my friend Gollum's blog, Designs by Gollum, and she was talking about how pretty pink is when mixed with other colors. I was telling her about my pink/green toile kitchen chair makeover last year and decided to post a picture to show her ~ so Michael, this is for you ~ just ignore the Halloween tablescape! :0)

BTW, she has a wonderful new feature on her blog, a newsletter that you can sign up for, so hop on over there to see what you've been missing and sign up so you won't ever miss anything else! She brings decorating, designing, and creating BEAUTIFUL food to an entire new level that even I might possibly manage on a smaller scale.

I just got a new computer and have been playing around with some of the photo features and special effects. I placed PINK corners on my ETERNALLY YOURS Angel that I designed for Valentine's Day. She features heart shaped angel wings, double entwined hearts that dangle from her bow and a lacey filigree petticoat peeking beneath her softly pleated skirt!

Please visit our lovely hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for more pretty PINKNESS today. She'll have a list of LOTS of other PINK PARTICIPANTS, too!

Please come by for a visit with me tomorrow when I'll be showing a bit more silver and some more of the jewelry I make on SILVER SUNDAY!

Your lamp is wonderful. It looks like it might have been hand painted. I have tea cups that look very similar that were hand painted back when it was popular among the ladies.

Stephanie, I love the heart and I love the lamp as I have a thing for lamps. But I really adore the chairs. May I ask how did you attach the ruffle underneath the chair?

I love your style. I could move right into your home and never change a thing!
The lamp is so romantic and lovely.
I think the shade is perfect. Also, your angel is so pretty.
I think the way that you put the ruffled skirt on the chairs is so neat, how did you do that?

I'll go check out your friends blog.

That was so kind of you to mention the newsletter. (hugs) The chairs are beautiful, Stephanie. I wish you'd post them to the gallery (link on my sidebar), as well as your other photos from the blog.If you do, put a link to Angelic Accents. You have so many great ideas!

I wonder how you affixed the skirt to the chair? I draped a Euro sham over a chair, and it looks...funny.
