Valentine Vignettes on the Chesser and Vintage Radio

My favorite room in our home to decorate for Valentines Day is the bedroom.     

I started my Valentine decorating in the bedroom by hanging a heart wreath over the mirror of the chesser.      I call this piece of furniture a chesser because it's a  marriage of a chest of drawers and a dresser.

I made this wreath many years ago and it's still one of my favorites.    I embellished it with old pieces of jewelry and  vintage lace.

The hand painted heart cookie cutter was gifted to me by a friend.

The ceramic unicorn drawn carriage belonged to my mother.

I'm not sure when or where my mother came up with this lovely piece,   but I will always treasure it.

I made several of these pin cushions years ago.......

I used to sell them at craft shows,    and these are a couple that were left over.

The vintage radio on the wall across from the chesser is a piece that you haven't seen before.      

It's a beautiful piece and I don't know why I haven't taken it out of storage and used it before now!    

I have an vintage sewing machine drawer filled with hearts as the centerpiece for the top of the radio

This sweet couple finish off the Valentine vignette 

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


  1. Penny, what a gorgeous room! Each detail is truly unique and I love the lace, frills and everything looks so soft and sweet. Your décor is definitely Romantic and oh so, Shabby Chic. I've been away from blogging and I'll be back to see you!


  2. Penny,
    What a lovely wreath!! I managed to take down and pack away Christmas in the Living Room today. I have to work the next 2 days bit I will slowly be cleaning the Living Room and then decorate it for Valentine's Day...

  3. I love the radio. So cute. The hearts in the sewing drawer are darling.

  4. Penny, one word comes to mind: DREAMY!!! So pretty and your header photo is gorgeous!!

  5. Lovely bedroom and so nice decorated! I love shabby. Have a nice day, Simona

  6. As a crochet designer, I love that you use doilies as a base for your vignettes! Beautiful!

  7. Penny, I love the warm feeling you give every room. I love how you have painted your furniture white. Does Mr H do this for you? I assume he uses a spray painter to get such a beautiful finish? I love the sweet touch of nick nacks that are from days gone by. You bring back the wonderful era a appreciation of art talent. These artist that created these little jewels were very talented. It breaks my heart when I see so many of these things dumped at thrift stores. I love the finds, but I feel the family or whoever took them to thrift store did not appreciate the past. I hope and pray your children appreciate your collections.
    You have inspired me to do so many things I have always loved.

  8. I'm in love with the radio and pin cushions. I would love falling into dream land in your bedroom. Thanks for sharing on Sunday's Best.
