Vintage Valentine Vignette

I've been trying to round up some of my Valentine's Day decor and realizing a box is likely hidden underneath a stack of boxes in my storage room. I know... story of my life these last 6 or so years. I know exactly what's missing, I just don't know where it is. So I'm using a few vintage cupid pieces that were easy to get my hands on in the china closet.

We've been at this house for almost a year, and Valentine's Day is the only holiday that I've not celebrated here. A year ago there was no decorating going on at either house. I was eyeball deep in packing boxes and bubble wrap.

These little porcelain pieces are probably from the 50's or 60's. Their detail is hand painted and oh-so-sweet and pretty. The only time of year that I use anything this "Romantic" is Valentine's Day. 

One of my vintage postcards is of a little cupid,
 so I thought it only fitting to work it into the cloche display.

I have this little vignette sitting on the Dining Room table.

Just look at those little lips and eyebrows. 
Although it does appear they need a few "foundational" undergarments.

I seem to be lighting candles here every afternoon.
 Sure makes it more cozy and home-y.
But I wouldn't leave this candle by itself,
since it is sitting a bed of moss.

A little more Valentine's Day Inspiration

Here's a lookback post from last year A Vintage Romance
and this post from a few years ago Share the Love

Hope you're having a wonderful week. Cold and light snow here, but nothing sticking to the streets. My husband just told me there are 4 deer in the front yard, (Wednesday evening at 10:00pm) so we watched them make their way through the back yards to the street behind. Even though we live in town we're down the street from a long "nature trail" that eventually finds it's way to the edge of town and opens to a large expanse of wooded land a few miles away. I imagine they had started their "hike" just after dark. 

Hope to see you next Monday evening.

  1. That's the story of my life too. Your vignette look amazing tho!

  2. Debra,
    I love that you find a few treasures for every Season to share with us.
    All in due time. . .may you find your treasure trove!
    Truly inspiring!

  3. Aww love that you see deer walking by the yard. I love your Valentine's Day vignette.
    Have a great evening.

  4. How fun to bring out some 'old' friends....sweet and a little touch of pink is so sweet!

  5. I had to laugh about their "foundational garments". They are truly adorable.

  6. Just enough sweetness! I know what you mean about knowing you have it, just not sure where. In fact, seeing your compote reminds me of one I know I didn't purge......but not exactly sure where it is right now. I think I have things fairly organized and labeled, just haven't had enough curiosity to bring things back out yet. Happy to see January come to a close.....ours proved to be quite challenging healthwise for Mr. P, but hopefully on the upswing again.

  7. Yeah, me too. Looks like we all forget or misplace things. I just simply don't know where I stored them, or what box. I should put labels on them as I do the Christmas stuff.
    I love your vignette and those cupids are darling and so is the urn. I haven't thought of anything just yet. You are very inspiring.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  8. Enjoyed your cupids very much; just reminded me of mine sitting on a shelf within reach. It just occurred to me that I enjoy them a lot more than the Valentine red glitter sign I bought to put in the middle of my Christmas wreathe! I love old figurines and have way too many of them. They need to be "vignetted"!

  9. Very lovely romantic Valentines decor.
    Have a great week,

  10. I have to say I am kind of glad you didn't find your box and used what you had on hand...I love your little Cherub vignettes. Beautiful photos!!!

  11. You have such a knack for setting up vintage vignettes! I love the "romantic" angels in this one. Had to laugh that you couldn't find the box -- I can totally relate! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen

  12. Precious. I hope you found your Valentine box. These cupids are darling.

  13. Just beautiful Debra! Love the postcard. Your vignettes are always so pretty. Have a great weekend!

  14. Debra, your pieces are adorable. Yes, very romantic! I always enjoy what you put together. Happy February!
    Thanks for the look back.
