Love Birds

Valentine's Day is only two weeks away and one of my favorite holidays.  I met my husband 37 years ago at Valentine's party while at college so it's a special day to us.   

 With such bitter cold temperatures this winter I have been indoors and "feathering my nest."

I decided to redecorate my favorite little hutch
 and not wait until Spring as I usually do.
I took everything off the shelves and gave the
 hutch a good cleaning.

I went through my dish closet and cabinets looking for red and white pieces from my different collections.

I added some red plaid napkins to the 
shelves for extra color.

This was my hutch last spring....

hurry spring!!

The hutch at Christmas...

I  added my favorite teapots which include one from my grandmother and "Mrs. Potts".
The soup tureen was purchased for $5 at one of my favorite antique malls.

The dinner plates are Sheffield ...made in the USA bone china.  I love the swirl border and I found these at Goodwill for only a few dollars!

This sweet bird was another GW find.  
The English Garden transferware is from an estate sale.  Four cups with saucers were only $8 and they are perfect for tea.

I always enjoy a visit from these two love birds!


Happy Valentine's Day!
