Hi Laurie,
All of your Valentine's Day emphemera is just delightful, I can tell that you really "lurve" this holiday.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Laurie, this all look so cute. Love the cloth. I noticed your silver butter dome, love it and to fill it with kisses. That's such a clever idea. I have to remember that so I can use mine in different arrangements. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

Looks like you're getting an early start with your Valentine display! I love it. Especially the painted glass dome. The Scrabble display with the dog is adorable. It's all so cute!

Kathleen said...

I was immediately drawn to the cloth, it is beautiful!! Where did you get it??
I will eat some of the goodies while I admire all your treasures. Can't wait to see what you do for the party. The pressure is on, LOL!
Could you get Tom Selleck to come to my house with flowers? That would be very sweet! ♥

Sue said...

That tablecloth is just so sweet, Laurie! Your treats and goodies look so tempting and all the vintage Valentine ephemera is precious. I have nothing to celebrate this holiday- in fact, all the candy in that big ol' fancy heart is already gone..... LOL
Your mosaics are cute, as usual, too!
xo, Sue

lvroftiques said...

Laurie once again it's Holiday Perfection at your house! Could it be any cuter?.....Noooooo....no it could NOT! I have a little red heart ornament just like that one. Where or where did it come from?....Oh yeah it came from YOU!! *winks* That's the cutest Valentines decor I own! Vanna

Sharing with Sherri said...

All your little pretties look so sweet Laurie!! Vintage valentines are just the cutest too!!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Laurie, This is so wierd!! I was just sitting on the couch watching the weather channel and I thought to myself..."I need to leave Laurie a comment...I wonder if she's going to get hit by this snow storm?" It has been way to long...I hate to admit, but I have been reading alot of blogs but have not been leaving as many comments. I guess I think everyone just knows I was there and can hear my thoughts! lol...Anyways, I have been doing a little stalking and I apologize for not letting you know I'm still around.

I love the snow to and hope we get alot tonight and tomorrow! But...then I'm ready for spring! lol...I'm ready for green instead of brown. I hope you get alot of snow too!! Stay Warm! Kristen

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Laurie...

Oooh...I just love your vintage Valentine's, my friend! Such a pretty vignette...lot's of Valentine "eye candy"! Laurie, I was admiring your beautiful red napkins with the pretty white flowers and white decorative borders...they are gorgeous! Then, I noticed that pretty red mercury glass heart ornament that you have on the lamp...it looks just like those pretty napkins! Sooo pretty!

Well my dear friend, I bet you are a busy little bee right now...getting ready for your Valentine's party! I am sooo looking forward to it! I need to work on my post tomorrow...I plan on attending! Yeeehawww!

Love ya,
Chari

I have decided that I want to come and visit you just to plunder about in your stuff. OK... and the chatting would be pretty wonderful too.

I'm crazy about that cloche. If you've shown it before, I don't remember it. It's so different!

Everything looks festive and wonderful. I love the HUGS and KISSES with the scrabble pieces.

What sweet treats for Valentine's week. And how fun to have a Valentine party - perfect for those of us in the Sandwich Generation who can't always get out to parties due to caring for elderly parents and babysitting grandchildren. I'm looking forward to visiting tomorrow. :)
