Valentine's Day Makes an Entrance

I'm going to admit right up front that this is one of those "photo shoots" that continued over the course of a day or two. I've been know to start taking pictures, then add or subtract items from the vignette. Instead of completely starting over, I just incorporate all the photos and we can do one of those "Highlights" photo puzzles along the lines of, "what's different in these photos?"

I was busy taking pictures of the Entry when I thought it would be fun to do a small Valentine's Day Cloche with one of my antique Valentines and some of the little pink mini carnations that I used earlier in the week. That's the nice thing about carnations, they stay pretty for days.

I'm using my antique cupid metal tray and little Lefton Cherub covered candy box that are two of my favorite vintage pieces. My wooden candlesticks get moved all around the house, because they are such a nice size and help balance out a tabletop vignette or tablescape. The shutters, antique mirror,  lamp, and little clock are pretty much permanent pieces here.

The Heart Shaped Rose Wreath is alternated between the Entry and the Kitchen sitting area each Valentine's Day. But I decided to go crazy in this area this year since I had been using neutrals here since before Christmas. So RED it is. I try to keep the background/permanent items neutral, so it's easy to change color palettes for Seasons and Holidays.

Here's a close up of the little cloche. I love this little Valentine's card, she's so rosy cheeked and fresh faced. It opens up, so it's not a school Valentine. I think it's about 1915 from the style. 

So these next pics are from the day before, when I hadn't yet had my cloche moment.

As you can see, I left the lower shelf untouched from January.

I was using my little rose bud creamer from the Blog Hop here instead.

so, are you thoroughly confused now?
