Here I am again with more "romantic " vignettes using antique items from my different collections.
Lately a favorite spot for staging a vignette is on the marble top parlor table in the back of the living room.
A favorite is the gold beaded candle lamp that fits in just about anywhere for any occasion, just simply romantic.
This is a vignette using antique items that would be on a Victorian lady's writing desk. A sweet letter written to sister in 1901, using a mother of pearl handled pen, with inkwell to the left.
to the right of the letter is a small 1884 autograph album with cute scrap art throughout the book.
Above that is an antique "Forget Me Not" scripture reading book, and a "How Do I Love Thee?" book with romantic poems and love songs, that hubby gifted me years ago...
and this sweet Nicole Sayre heart box that I got at a sale a while back. A cloth lace trimmed heart and an antique Valentine...
and more antique Valentine's.
Over on another parlor table is a continuation from the other table.
A Valentine gift bag and a homemade mirrored Valentine made by me for hubby several year's ago. Another cloth heart and a 1901 ruby flash paper weight.
A chocolate heart box, and a stack of antique books...
with pretty red covers...
Who doesn't love a beautiful book cover? I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I do! Especially this one!
And the beautiful illustrations that go along with it.
Thank you so much for your visit, wishing you a romantic week leading up to St. Valentine's Day!
