vintage romance...

This lovely vintage rose pin is my way of saying Thank You to everyone who stopped by and commented on my first post. Your kindness, compliments and words of encouragement overwhelmed me! Why did I wait so long to start my blog!!


There are quite a few blogs that I've been following and taking inspiration from. Cindy at My Romantic Home who hosts Show and Tell Friday always amazes me everyday with such beautiful pictures, stories and sometimes yummy recipes! I'm thrilled to be joining today and showing you all some vintage romance just in time for Valentine's Day.


This is my favorite tea cup...I just love the combination of roses and pale aqua.

I also love all the roses on this vintage chocolate box. I've nestled this in an old heart shaped wire basket and hung it at my fireplace.

Look how shabby the paper has become! Oh, and guess what? It is a music box too! It plays "Love Is A Many Splendid Thing".

Going away for the weekend?


Don't you just love vintage suitcases? I found these on ebay...painted a pale pink with white trim and lightly distressed. So sweet!

I thought this sign would be just perfect to put with them.

I think I've saved the best for last. I recently got this beauty on etsy...

Again...I just adore pink roses and aqua!!

I have this treasure hanging over my work table in my craft room. I could just look at it for hours! Just like how I've been looking at all the treasured comments from all you kindred spirits who have so warmly welcomed me to the wonderful world of blogging!
