Happy Valentine's Day, Sweet Friends!

*

*
Hello sweet friends...Happy Valentine's Day!
*
I hope that you're having a fabulous Valentine's Day! I'm sending you my very best wishes for a day filled with all things sweet and lovely!!!
*
I do hope that you know just what you mean to me! I just adore you and cherish our sweet friendship! You are always such a joy...a blessing to me! So today...on this fine Valentine's Day, I thought we might share a special Valentine's tea...in honor of you, my dearhearts!
*
I hope that you enjoy!
*

*
Please do come in and have a seat...and take a cup...
*

*
I have set a tea table just for you...with a few Valentine pretties!
*

*
A tall, glass apothecary jar filled with shiny mercury glass orbs....a few of the orbs have beautiful jewels on them...sooo pretty!
*

*
A pretty mercury glass heart decorated with a frilly white organza ribbon sits atop a garland with tassels made of silver beads. The perfect setting for a Valentine cloche!
*

*
A beautiful white porcelain lady figurine also adorns our Valentine tea table today.
*

*
I polished my silver tea set just for this special occasion!
*
Would you like a cup of tea? A little sugar...and cream?
*

*
I thought that my little silver teapot napkin rings would be perfect to hold the pretty white napkins edged in lace.
*

*
To all of my darling blogging friends...each of you hold a special place in my heart! You have enriched my life...beyond words!
*
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
*

*
Spending an afternoon with you on Valentine's Day...sharing a cup of tea and conversation...is absolutely delightful!!!
*
I'm soooo glad that you came by for a visit today, my friends!
