A Little Valentine Chaos

Hello Friends, 
Hope you're having a "Sweet" Valentine's Weekend!

Now that I'm feeling better, I made the commitment
to get busy on going through the rest of the boxes in the storage room.
Can I say I'd rather be doing so many other things...?

But I have found a few of my little decor pieces that as yet had been hidden.
One is this very old oval tray with a cupid and young lady. 
It was all the rage in the teens and twenties to depict fair young maidens,
who were commonly known as "Nymphs".

Many famous paintings of that era had dancing, swimming, singing,
 lounging, ogling, cavorting beauties known as "nymphs".

My cavorting, ogling, and dancing days are in the rear view mirror,
so I'll just enjoy this little piece of fantasy here on the Entry Console.

I've been digging through boxes of "Silver",
 and don't know what I'm going to do with it all.

 (sorry, I guess the leopard print ribbon doesn't really "go" with dancing nymphs,
but it was there first so it's staying for a bit.)

I found this little set of bud vases, 
so here they are with some sweet pink roses.

I'm making headway on organizing,
but it takes me a lot longer than I'd like.
Hubbs helped this morning to cut down some boxes
and get a few things put away.
I have one whole wall with shelving,
so that's going a long way to get a handle on it all.

In the meantime, I'm finding a few things I've been looking for.
Like an iron flower container that I'd hunted for at Christmas.
I couldn't find it anywhere, 
and I was kicking myself if it had gotten away from me.
No, just in the bottom of a box marked "Basement Decor".
Story of my recent life.

And, if you're looking for a romantic film
full of French Eye Candy,
then watch "A Little Chaos" with Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman.
you will love the beauty of the Gardens of Versailles.
