Milk Glass and Dreamcicle Valentine Decor

I hadn't intended to do anymore decorating for Valentines,  but when I put away the winter decor that was in the hall cabinets this morning......      

I just couldn't resist getting out my collection of Dreamcicles.    I also gathered up all my pink pieces of crochet to add a little more color to my Valentine vignettes.

These cabinets permanently house my collection of milk glass, so I just put seasonal decor in some of the empty spaces.

The lit cabinet that holds my milk glass collection was built  in the "wide spot" at the end of the hallway

The cabinet was originally built to hold linens,  but I asked H to take the doors off and add lights to make it a display cabinet.  The cabinets in the laundry room were big enough to hold all of my linens.

  The cabinet was also a  dark wood color,  so it got a fresh coat of white paint.   

Along with the lit cabinet,  there  are 3 bedrooms,  2 baths,  and a large laundry room down the hallway.

I'll just let you scroll down and see some of my Valentine vignettes......

Across from the built in cabinets,  I have three identical mirrors and a small display cabinet

I decorated the smaller cabinet with the same theme as the big lit cabinet.....

I couldn't decide which side of the flower arrangement I liked the best....

The cabinet that had been  at the end of the hallway for quite a while was moved to the kitchen last week........  

Here is it's new home!

I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of February!  

2016 is just flying by!


  1. I just love your home. So light and bright and everywhere you look there are beautiful things to see.

  2. You have so many pretty mirrors. Your hall way looks beautiful to see all your different mirrors. Each one shows another pretty setting across from it. The way you make your lit up cabinet look with your collection & then add your theme to it is ALWAYS beautiful.

  4. You certainly put me in a Valentine mood! Love all of your lacey décor.


  5. I adore your Dreamcicles - I have always thought they were just the most adorable angels around - and you have displayed them perfectly! Your entire home is all about romance and femininity = love love love it! ♥♥♥

  6. The Dreamcicles are too cute and I love your pretty doilies, Penny. You have such a nice bright home. Thanks for sharing.


  7. It's all so lovely and warm. You have so many things to work all my life I've never seen anyone with so many beautiful things! It's amazing and mesmerizing each day to check in and see what new things you have brought out, bought or rearranged. It's really like a trip through a decorating fantasyland. I always have to inspect every little detail. A big hug to you for all your inspiration!!! :)

  8. You have the prettiest, sweetest and charming homes ever! I'd be smiling all the time. Your collection of Dreamcicles is just precious!

  9. Love your charming home! Everything is so pretty!

  10. Your home is so charming! I love the cabinet and how you displayed the sweet cherubs. I like very much the three mirrors.

  11. Wow Penny you have so much pretty and romantic items in your collections. How do you keep track of it all? You have so many gorgeous pieces of milk glass. Do you collect it as you find pieces?
    I was especially interested in your cabinet with the milk glass, have just recently begun to collect some but don't think will ever have what you do. For one thing no place to keep so many things. As it is I store much of things I want to keep track of in our old Suburban. That way nothing gets lost (or gone) via hubs. He complains about all my stuff.
    It's like gee whiz can't an old lady (75 yrs. old, old lady my foot) have some things I love around me?
    I like to rotate things for seasons/holidays too so have to have someplace to store them. I've managed to migrate some of my stuff in hubs little travel trailer we don't use anymore. My reasoning is if we're not going to use it why not store things in it. I miss going and staying in it.
    Whenever I click on your posts, just never know what you've been up to. How is everything in New Mexico? Do you get snows and cold temps?
    I really need a new chair or some kind of cushion on seat, my butt gets sore sitting here for any length of time. Been trying to get caught up on blog posts, hard for me to keep up. Have to spend quite a bit of time daily doing my physical therapy exercises for my shoulder/arm. Had right shoulder replaced on 12/7 so am working on getting that shoulder and arm to work right again. It's coming along, takes time. Better go gal. have great week.

  12. Penny,
    I love your collection of Dreamsicles. So cute!! My one niece used to collect them. I finally finished decorating the Living Room for Valentine's Day and just need to finish the V Day Tree in the Dining Room and then I can post about it.
    I have been taking my time because I have not decorated for Valentine's Day in 2 years and forgot what I had, where I put it and also added some things that I bought on Clearance over the years.

  13. I am so impressed with all your amazing collection of pink and valentine focused ornaments. We don't decorate for seasons in Australia (only Christmas) so I am always amazed when I see it in its full glory. Thanks for sharing with us on our #OverTheMoon link up ~ Leanne

  14. They look great among the milk glass, I have one of the Dreamcicles with a heart that I put out every valentines day, your collection is sweet!
