I am a Victorian Soul, who lives in a small townhouse that was built in the mid 1970's, not a huge Mega Mansion!! I just recently lost my Hubby Joe, who was a Retired Letter Carrier. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before I had Knee Replacement Surgery and officially Retired in 2019 after 41 years working in Direct Patient Care ... I am so glad that we retired at 62 years of age and got to spend that time together before he passed....I still do love Retirement!!!!

 In this post, I will be sharing the buffet, the small curio and the top of the hutch.....

We will start with the Dining Room buffet.......
I decorated the buffet for Valentine's Day.....
With heart boxes......
Ceramic cupcake dishes......
A vintage Valentine's Card that was my neighbor's.....
A cherub photo frame......
A Valentine's candy dish filled with Valentine's candy......
Faux heart cookies and faux cupcakes.......
A vintage looking tin heart box placed in a pink depression glass biscuit jar filled with faux pastries.....
A "Love" sign.....
 Another candy dish.....
More faux cookies and cupcakes....
Sitting on a cake pedestal.......
Is a cherub compote bowl resting on a mosaic heart box......
 Another cherub....
  More heart boxes......
I also ran a string of heart lights through out the display on the buffet......
One of my Victorian dolls.......
Between the buffet and the hutch in the Dining Room, is a small curio......
Above the curio.....
Top of the curio......
A Valentine's book, "Token of Love"
Pink hearts added to a floral arrangement......
Just a few Valentine's touches to an existing vignette.......
 Inside the curio and another one of my Victorian dolls........
 I did hang a few hearts from the chandy......
Gold hearts and white ornaments......
And also some embellished tags....
The top of the hutch.......
Again, a few Valentine touches added........
Some of my collection of Thomas Kinkade Pink Ladies......
The photo is of my Paternal Grandparents......
My Maternal grandparent's photo is in the frame on the left and my Grandmother holding my Mother is in the frame on the right.......
On the window divider between the Dining Room and the Living Room......

After Christmas, I kept out the wreath that I made .....
And a heart plaque that I made......

A beautiful doll that Joe bought for me many years ago.....
I hope you enjoyed seeing my pink and white Valentine's decorations in the Dining Room........
 I did keep out the Snow Buddies in our Powder Room after Christmas and they will stay up for the remainder of the Winter until sometime in March.....

In my next post, I will be sharing the Powder Room and explaining why I am "Tapping Out" and Letting Go".....

 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
