Soft & Romantic

                                                                        Hello everyone,
                                    Since Valentine's Day is coming up soon so I am going with a soft
                                   and romantic look. Small perfume bottles are yet another item I
                                   can't resist at thrift shops etc.~they add a romantic touch to a
                                  dresser or vanity.
                                  I went through some of my photos from a few years ago and found
                                  some of these so if you have been visiting me for awhile I hope you
                                  don't mind some repeats.
                                  This soft peach teacup is one of my favorites.
                                                                    Love the light!
                                     My Dad gave me this pitcher and basin many years ago. It is
                                      the wheat pattern.
                                        Lace and roses are some of my favorite things.

                                                      An ironstone vase with creamy roses.

            I have lots more soft and romantic shots with a Valentine's Day theme to come so I
                      hope you will stop by again. Thank you to all who have left such lovely comments for
                     me lately and once again thank you for visiting me.

                                                                                       Take care,

Dear Carolyn,
your blog was a coup de foudre for me. So I'm a `hidden`guest for a while and would like to thank you for the beautiful time I've spent in your house and garden. Your pictures and the ideas have inspired me a lot. They're heart, soul and mind touching. As I'm a blogger newbie since one month I allow myself to write those words.
Best wishes from Austria and again thanks a lot

Dear Carolyn your posts never disappoint and this one is so close to my heart as I love soft and romantic pictures. They tug at my heart strings.
I would love beg you and your dear ladies that enjoy this coming special day in February that instead of calling it Valentine's Day they would add the title of the dear Saintly Bishop whose name is used for this 'special day' just as you do on St. Patrick's is never called Patrick's Day...this saint is always given his title. St. Valentine is a well recognized Saint in the Catholic church. May St. Valentine reward you.
With gratitude,
Sylvia Faye

Lovely and romantic. I don't mind seeing repeats of your photos Carolyn. They are too pretty not to share more than once.
