Quick Valentine Vignette

I did a quick Valentine vignette on the kitchen counter this morning.  It started with a gorgeous tiered plate stand that belonged to my mother.  I added a cloche to the top of it....
Then,  I put some faux cherries under the cloche...

 made some paper 'cupcakes'   (just put shredded paper in a cupcake holder)   and added some candy garland.

I had so much fun making paper 'cupcakes' that I made some for my new cupcake holder....

I got this beauty the other day at HL ...80% off...'re kidding , right????   9.99, now that's more like it!

I had this card holder out for Valentines cards and decided to use it to display these vintage pot holders.

Have a Happy Valentines Day!

  1. Hope this doesn't post twice, said there was an error. Anyway, I love your cherries under the cloche, so cute and your crocheted pot holders are fabulous. What a lovely vignette. Thanks for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  2. Oh my, such beautiful cloche with the cherries inside and all those adorable knitted pot holders..simply lovely! Big hugs,

  3. what a lovely post, love the two tiered dish with the cloche on top. Also the cup cakes holders are adorable and your crocheted tea pot coasters/or pot holders (I have a couple and they are coasters) are lovely too. Everything is... God bless

  4. What a pretty vignette! I especially love the vintage pot holders. I think they are what originally brought me to your blog. I have lots of plain doilies and have been making dishclothes and towels for gifts, but I think I will have to visit ravelry for some vintage potholder patterns and do some just for me. I often buy out all the cotton yarn at a local thrift stor so I have lots of off white- my favorite, but I really like the crisp freshness of your whites accenting the colors.

  5. So sweet! I love your use of the crocheted doilys! I have a few of them as well, and you've given me a great idea for them.

  6. Your display is beautiful. Your potholders are so cute.
