taking a break

I'm taking a break from painting my little tattered chair and I thought I would share with you my Valentine's table.  Mr. Vintage and I are celebrating this evening...

Aren't these just the most beautiful tulips?

I like to use mismatched dishes...

I found some of this premixed dark chocolate  martini....Yum


Mr. Vintage came in and told me the table looked very pretty ~ sigh ~ He's the best ~

Happy Valentine's Day, Mr. Vintage ;-)

What are you doing for Valentine's Day?

I can't wait to hear ;-)




  1. I adore the tulips and I love mis-matched china! My son is going to be my Valentine this year, and I'm more than happy about it because I'm sure when he is older that will not be the case, so tomorrow him and I will be going on a date to Ihop because that is where he wants to take me hahaha and my hubby is going to take our two daughters on a date, we will be celebrating tomorrow because my husband works Monday :) I hope you have a fabulous weekend and a sweet Valentines!! Xoxoxo

  2. Your table is charming, I especially like the little hankerchief? in the center. So pretty!

    My husband and I are going out to dinner tonight at one of our favorite restaurants. Then, tomorrow I'll make an Italian dinner for us and and our kids and my aunt. I love Valentine's Day,and will decorate the table and make a gooey chocolate cake for dessert!

  3. Ahhh! What a delightful setting for a special dinner with your dear Mr.Vintage. Enjoy.
    We are kinda celebrating this evening too - here at home, our favorite 'restaurant' and 'movie theatre'!

    Love white tulips - actually all tulips.
    Happy Valentine's Day wishes.
    Thanks for stopping by Marianne.
