Wood Slice Valentine Cake

I made a centerpiece for my tablescape using wood slice chargers to make a Valentine cake.

I made a wood slice cake for Christmas and filled it with "snow" icing and had a family of deer on the top.     For my Valentine cake,     I  filled  my cake slices with moss icing and small dried carnations.

The sun is flooding the dining room with light today,   so I'm having a hard time getting good photo's.

The cake topper for my Valentine cake is a sweet cow couple.......

Here's the back side of the Valentine wood slice cake......

I have the table set with my mothers wedding china.......

Made in America about 70 years ago!

The  tablerunner is a long white enamel tray.

Let's look around the room........over in the corner unit 

I have a pair of    "Love Bugs"

I thought the love bugs would add a little more Valentine decor to the dining room.

Pink O' favorite time of the day!

The other corner of the dining room has a dress form.....

Next to the dress form is a vintage sewing machine that has been converted to a lamp......with a chicken wire lamp shade   

I bought a 2018 cow calendar at Joann's the other day for $4    (75% off)     I already had one just like it that I had bought last fall at a little shop in Amarillo Texas   AND  paid retail for!     So,   I decided to take my "cheap" calendar  apart and frame some of the cow prints.     I have this print next to the dress form.......

Then,   I have a couple more prints on the ladder by my chair in the family room.

I use the word  "framed"!

I have a vintage wood pant holder on the top and one on the bottom of the print.......

I still have 9 more prints left in my calendar to frame!

Thank you so much for stopping by...........come back soon!
