Hello my friends! I hope that you're having a wonderful week!
*
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. I love that we have a special day set apart to celebrate those we love...don't you? I just don't know where I would be without the love of my family and friends!
*
In celebration of Valentine's Day and you, my dear sweet friends...I have prepared a little something! You all mean so very much to me and I wanted to honor you and our friendship with a special "Valentine Treasures" tea!!! I hope that you enjoy!
*
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

"Valentine Treasures"
...a poem by Joanna Fuchs
*

*
Valentine treasures are people who...
*

*
have often crossed your mind.
*

*
Family, friends, and others, too...
*

*
who in your life have shined.
*

*
The warmth of love...or a spark of light...
*

*
that makes you remember them;
*

*
no matter how long...
*

*
since you've actually met.
*

*
Each one is a luminous gem...
*

*
who gleams...
*

*
and glows in your memory...
*

*
bringing special pleasures.
*

*
And that's why this Valentine comes to you...
*

*
You're one of those sparkling treasures!
*
*
Love ya'll...Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Chari,
You have done a beautiful job arranging such an elegant setting. I love your choice of silver mixed with the glass pieces, against your deep red walls. It really is perfect for a Valentine Vignette.

Hi Chari,
Just read your sweet note, your so kind my friend! This is so beautiful! Your photography skills just keep getting better and better. I just love the silver with the white, it just takes me to another time. When things were so elegant and maybe simpler. You just know how to work it girl! MAGAZINE READY! Hugs, Cindy

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Everything looks so beautiful!!! And your silver is all polished!!! Sorry that I haven't been around much lately. I've been taking care of my mom for the past few days since she had her heart surgery. Family comes first! I haven't even started my Valentine's decoration. My goal is to get something up this weekend. But then I think why even bother for one week. But I love Valentine's Day. I'll talk to you later.

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog
article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours
and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you're interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
