Longtime readers of this blog know that I love-love-love to celebrate Valentine's Day, and next week, I'll be offering small giveaways every day of the week leading up to Valentine's Day! So if you're a new reader, I just wanted to let you know that February 8-14 is one week you do not want to miss on this blog, because little treats have been piling up here in anticipation of the fun! So this weekend, I decided to get started early by decorating my tea trolley with some heart-themed teawares and a few of my tea-themed vintage valentines.
Here are a few of the things on the tea trolley, so many of them very meaningful to me. At bottom right, there's a little Herend pink rose that was one of my first Valentine's Day gifts from my sweetheart. In the center at bottom, there's a teapot that was a gift from my late mother, and in the upper left corner, there's the darling carnation figurine that was a gift from tea friend Michele last year.
And beneath it all is the beautiful tablecloth I recently received from Margie, a design which brings out the blues that are in so many of the vintage valentines, I discovered! I so enjoy looking at all these goodies during Valentine's Month. Do you have any special Valentine's Day/Month plans?
