Display Chain ~ Valentine's Day

I've been so busy making Valentine's Day pieces, I haven't had the opportunity to put my own displays together yet, but thought I would share a few photos of things that remind me that it's coming. Thanks Misi at 1890 Gable House Musings for hosting the Chain.

I leave the corsage that I wore at my daughter's wedding dangling from the hutch in the dining room. She married her high school sweetheart after they went their separate ways for several years then reunited. Such a beautiful love story . . .
These stone birds reside on a shelf in the foyer year round and I change out the focal point with the season. The birdies represent me and hubby . . .

I stitched this quilt back in 1998 when I was decorating with a more "country" style. A dozen years sure went by quick . . .

~Love is a Many Splendid Thing~

Hello Madalynne,
Me thinks you must be a romantic at heart. :) I love the sweet corsage and the stone birds...
I posted a "country" quilt today too. It's a little dated, but a treasure to me. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
