Winter Dough bowl

I came home from Brimfield antique show once with this gorgeous antique European dough bowl,  it's being so much fun to dress it up and change it according to the season.

Right now, for the winter it's sporting some evergreen branches from my yard, some pine cones and candles!

We've been having an early spring with temperatures in the low 70s, that is unheard of in New England in February! I can certainly get use to this fabulous weather, but I know winter will be back soon. Even though winter is not over yet, I am so ready for spring, so I think the spring look for my Euro wooden bowl will be happening soon!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!

A Valentine's Table Scape

Love is in the air, and love inspired me to set my table for Valentine's Day!

I chose a table cloth that belonged to my grandmother in white and gray with beautiful detail. 

With gorgeous white and pink roses I created a center piece using a soup tureen .

I chose to use my grandmother china. It is beautiful! it has a delicate blue flower border and golden trim.
I brought this china with me last summer from Spain, wrapped in bubble wrap and paper in a bag as a carry on!

 I decorated the table with some soft pink candles to add a romantic touch

And of course some bubbly, check out this beautiful bottle, it is white and pink so it fits perfect with the theme of the table. The champagne is also pink and absolutely delicious!

In front of each place setting I added some pink and white m&ms for those guest with a sweet tooth! I displayed them in this adorable liquor glasses, they belonged to my mother in law so they are very special to me.

I recently added this beautiful flatware to my collection. The "handles" are a soft whitish-gray, so they look really nice with the table cloth. I found them at Walmart out of all places! and they come in an assortment of colors!

Some little birds in glass domes spread around the table,  just to add an unexpected touch and just because I adore birds... they add happiness to any space!

Do you have any plans for Valentine's day?

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting! Have a beautiful day!
