Tulips and Valentines

I have several spots in my living room where I have my Valentine post cards displayed. Since I have so many pieces of  china with roses on them in pink, I thought they make the perfect companions. Some of you saw a hint in my last post....but the area was not complete. When I went to the grocery store yesterday they had the most beautiful pink Tulips....I had to have them!


I put the Tulips in my Grandmothers rose vase

Isn't she cute.......my Valentine Hummel I purchased on one of my trips to Paris. I thought she needed to come out of the curio cabinet and greet you.














One my Grandmothers cups










Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Great valentine's display, Ann. I love the one with the white picket fence. Gee, I wonder why??? :) The tulips are great. One of my favorite flowers!

Karen said...

Enjoyed looking at the beautiful valentine vignette. The tulips are gorgeous. I've been wanting to get the Valentine's stuff out. It's going to slip up on me! Joining you for the party.

I don't normally like tulips-just the pink ones-a few years ago I planted some in my yard. You make me think of spring-but I've got so much to do in the house before I think of that. The valentines are really cute!

Julie said...

Ann, just found your blog. I love your home and yard in the heading. It is so pretty. Happy New Year to you and your family.

Oh what a gorgeous share today. I absolutely love the simplicity of the tulips, as they bring love into any setting. Yours are truly gorgeous, especially in your beautiful vase.

Love your Valentine vignette. How pretty it is. I love the one with the white picket fence. Picture perfect.

Babs said...

Your tulips and sweet valentines are so pretty. Love your little Hummel girl. I don't have any valentine things. I do have an old valentine my father sent to my mother but that's it. I rarely decorate for Valentine's Day, but I loved seeing your sweet vignettes.

Ivy and Elephants said...

Gorgeous display! I just love vintage cards. I'd like to invite you to share this lovely post at WIW, too. We'd love to have you!

Hi Ann,
The tulips are beautiful. I had some last week and I need to buy more..I love them. Your Valentines are very pretty and I adore your little hummel girl..

Tete said...

Love your pinks and I am so hoping that when the tulips come up, that some of them will be as pretty and pink as those.

Rebecca said...

Another lovely display!!! I just can't seem to get into the mood to decorate anymore. I'll be glad when I get out of this funk!!!

Lisa Balazs said...

a very lovely post. All of your items are so pretty and romantic. I love the old Valentine you have. I wish I had some of my grandmother and grandfathers old letters and cards, maybe some day my mom will give me some. Thank you so much for sharing.
