Pink Saturday - Valentines Day

It is Pink Saturday again. (Ok, I am posting this on Friday night, I don't know how to use the scheduler and I want the early birds to be able to see my post.) I had so much fun last week visiting all of (well about a 3rd of the 168 blogs) blogs participating in PS. What fun and wonderful blogs. To find all of the blogs sharing a bit of pink please follow this link How Sweet the Sound you will find a list of blogs for you to visit.

My post of Pink this week includes a bit of Valentines Day.

Now as you look at my things remember I am a Rustic decorator who also combines country and cottage.........Rustic-Country-Cottage. That is my style and to be honest I do not get fancy for everyday, fancy is only for special occasions, so it does not happen often around here. But, I love to see beautiful decorating.

The place mats are the inspiration for this setting. These mats are easy to make with matching napkins. I took the colors from the place mat and thankfully had dishes to coordinate.

The plates are from Princess House

The glassware are gifts from my MIL, Letha and are vintage.

Once Valentine's Day is over you can turn the mat over for a spring look.

Thank you for stopping over, please leave a comment, I love getting comments. I will be making my rounds, too.

So sorry that I missed you yesterday. It seemed like the day just ran away from me! But, with this being ♥Valentine's Day♥ what better time for me to stop by to see your Pink Saturday goodies.

It's been a long and dark winter up here near Canada so filling myself up with pink is my way on the weekend of chasing away the blues - not that blue isn't a nice color, too☺

Thanks so much for sharing. After all, isn't sharing one of life's greatest pleasures?

♫Happy Valentine's Day♫
