Vintage Inspiration Friday #22 Morning Tea and Romance

The sun decided to make an appearance today,
so what better place to have tea than in the sunroom!

I brought out my new sterling silver tray that I received from my sis for Christmas, (yep, she's one great sister!) and a pretty pink floral Staffordshire teapot, cup and saucer, and journal to start the day.

I've been putting a few new pendant pieces together for Valentine's Day.
 Lots of hearts and cupids...

and of course some blinged keys.

I love graphics from the 20's and 30's,
and found these sweet little postcards last weekend at Spring Creek.

For anyone local, I'm now selling my jewelry at Inspirational Home
 and my booth at Spring Creek, in Ozark.

I've just listed these in my Etsy Store, The Petite Boutique
and have a few more designs in the works.
I'm lovin' these little Puffy Hearts!

Be sure and Grab the button for the
 Valentine's Day Party
here at Vintage Inspiration Friday, February 11.

And for some fun from last weeks posts:

French newspaper Valentine Garland

A Little Bit Country Transferware Table

Assembled Boxes
(this is a must see!)

Family Sea Chest

I'm linking up with Courtney for Feather Your Nest Friday
