You're Invited .....

Happy Valentine's Day!
       I am happy you stopped in for a Romantic Valentin's Day Tea.
I am using all my pastel pinks today as they have such a soft romantic look - don't you agree?

My special teapot and pretty pink goblets.
Beautiful cookies that my daughter made for me.
Romantic cream roses with a blush of pink.


A pretty teacup and vintage pink china.

Well, you sure look pretty in pink and thank you for stopping by today.

Thank you to all who have left such sweet notes for me either by email or on my blog and welcome to all my new followers-I am so happy to have you!

I hope you all have a wonderfully Romantic Valentine's Day and can take a few moments to pass on some loving kindness to someone else- maybe a sweet lady in a nursing home or the grumpy old man next door!

Thank you to Nette who did a nice feature on our garden-I have tried to comment on Nette's blog as well as a few others  and can not leave one -publish disappears before I can hit it -anyone else have that problem?

Kathy at Creative Home Expressions also did a lovely feature on my blog- I am very touched by the kind words-thank you Kathy. Hope you have a minute to pop in and say hello to Nette and Kathy.

I am joining Dear Lillie Valentine's Party today.

Enjoy your day!
Carolyn

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your family! Stopping in here I always find sweet moments. Love all of the roses...on the cups and plants and in the vases!

My iPhone forever changes my typed words... I meant roses on the plates, not plants. Although I live your real roses too!

Hi Carolyn`lovely lovely table! these soft peachy pink and yellows are so pretty. My hubby and I were visiting our elderly neighbor in the nursing home~sadly,she passed away last week. The nursing homes can be so lonely for those that are old and have no one in their lives. so nice of you to suggest this on v-day.
