Valentine Mantle

I added some Valentine decor to the mantle in our bedroom.  I found this vintage velvet rose picture at a yard sale last summer...$2...It was love at first sight!   

I added  a pink rose swag to the top of the picture...

This is a sweet cherub clock and candle holders that belonged to my mom...

It is one of my treasures that she left me.
These are some Home Interior sconces that I have had a long time...and I added matching vintage plates.

Some of my anniversary plate collection seemed perfect for Valentines Dau! 

You have seen this lamp in many of my posts...its one of my favorites.  My mom and dad bought it when they were on a trip to San Diego in 1950.
I strung an AMOUR banner across the front of the fireplace....made by moi!
                                                                            Happy Valentines Day!

  1. Penny, I have a question for you. Has anyone else told you that they have difficulty readying your blog...It is huge and overlaps on my computer. None of the other blogs do this so I was wondering if it was a setting of yours. I love to come visit, but I really can't see everything.

    1. Thank you so much for your visits...I want you to see everything! I think I have it fixed...Diana helped me! Hugs, Penny

  2. Penny, i 'm here again...sorry but i love to see your home!!!Everything is amazing, very romantic as usual. You are great!!!

  3. Hi Penny, your bedroom looks soooo elegant and romantic ;)
    I love dropping by for a visit ;)


  4. So pretty, Penny. Your blog does not appear oversized on my screen but your pictures are a size too big (I think that's what it is) because they cover up your sidebar (or part of your picture disappears). I think that is what CK is talking about. The layout that you are using only works with pictures size to medium (or maybe large) but not extra large)...just a thought- xo Diana

    1. Thanks Diana! I think I got it fixed...I had got some suggestions that they would like to see more detail in my photo's. So, I upped (is that a word? lol) my picture size! Hugs, Penny

  5. Penny, I love the quilt on the bed, it is so gorgeous. And the anniversary plates, for 30 and for 5. xo

  6. Love your banner--everything looks pretty. You are the Queen of seasonal decorating!

  7. Penny, I am glad I am not the only one who changes the tree for Valentines Day. Everything is lovely as usual.

  8. Absolutely gorgeous! Everything looks beautiful. I love the Valentine trees. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing. Karie

  9. Penny,
    Love the clock and cherubs!! And I do remember those Home Interiors sconces!! I think I did have them at one time and maybe broke one.
    I love the Home Interior items and still have a lot of them. Love all of your V Day decor...


  10. Oh Penny I love that velvet rose picture!!! I've never seen anything like it. Also, really like the cherub clock and the wreath is lovely. Thank you for sharing, can't wait to see more!

  12. I don't HAVE a blog, but really enjoy reading them and I am SO glad to see how many lovely things you have that your Dear Mother left to you. It is very heartwarming to see how she is being honored by you! I also have many, many things that belonged to my Mother, and think of her DAILY when walking through a room and seeing these things. Bless you! Donna
