A Valentine Setting

Valentine's Day is approaching, and I wanted to show you a simple centerpiece on my dining room table.  I painted this heart-shaped hatbox many years ago.  It has always been one of my favorite pieces.  I finished the inside of the box with gathered fabric, ribbons and lace.  This centerpiece has served for a many Valentine tea and a few romantic dinners.  My Father made the gorgeous  Tiffany lamp.  I leave it on 24 hours a day.  It is beautiful at night through the front window.  Yes, the lamp is roses in sumptuous reds and pinks.  It all goes so well with the pink carpet!

Another wonderful Pink Saturday here in Colorado.  Thank you to Beverly for hosting Pink Saturdays!

Wow! Your father created a beautiful lamp, and your box is lovely. There must be an artistic gene in your family.
