Valentine's Vignette

Let me first start off by saying that I am a Virgo.... Which means that I am a Perfectionist! I had a Tablescape all ready yesterday but I didn't like the way the pictures turned out so I am not going to post it until next week.  Can any of you relate to my Virgoness??? 

So let me show you a little Valentine's Vignette that I have in my Entry.  Preface by saying that it's no showstopper but it makes me happy everytime I walk by... And everytime my Daughter walks by.... As the Chocolate is almost gone now, but we are BOTH happy!!!
 I purchased the adorable little Bird candy dishes (or whatever you want to put in there) from Hautelook.  I LOVE Hautelook, they are my favorite for great clothes and deals.
The clock I found at Steinmart at 75% off because it had a little Chip in it. Furniture Markers to the Rescue!
The table runner was a gift and the planter is from a consignment shop where they sold a set of three for something  like $14.00. 
I love my painting that we bought while on vacation in Italy on the Amalfi coast.  25th wedding present from Mr. Beaux. Now how Romantic is that?  And the chest I believe I picked up at Nebraska Furniture Mart a while back for a Model Home but somehow it wound up in MY house. How does that Happen? 

 So, I'm joining Tablescape Thursday at BNOTP my favorite link party. And here is a preview of my Table for next week!

Beaux R'eves!

Very pretty vignette! Love those bird dishes.

Alycia Nichols said...

Gee, Cindy...how DOES that happen that you buy something for a model home and it miraculously ends up at yours? I have NEVER done that! ;-) The chest looks great in your foyer, though, so I think it found the right home! I'm not a Virgo, but I'm a Gemini so I can relate in that one side of me loves what I do but the other side hates it so I end up re-doing it over and over and over again! Pretty vignette! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Great Vignette- love the chest! The clock and the planter- but that picture stole my heart! What a treasure!

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

Anything that makes you smile every time you walk by is wonderful, isn't it? Your chest and vignette and perfect for Valentine's Day!

Maggie said...

This is so lovely and fun to have something that makes you stop (the candy) and smile (the picture) everytime you walk by. So well put-together.

Tricia said...

This is a gorgeous vignette! I would be dipping into those candy bowls on every pass through the entry! I inherited a clock similar to yours, so now you have me thinking about how I might use it!

Lovely. I was trying to see a close view of the painting. Looked like it might be the Hotel Bellevue Syrene in Sorrento? One of my favorite spots on Earth. Thank you for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

That chest is to die for! I love your "subtle" Valentine's entry. I think it's alot harder to do than a tablescape!

I really love the candy dish with the bird's on top and it is my favorite. Your other accessories were really tempting and lovely for a Valentine Style display. I am looking forward to your table next week. Happy Tablescaping! Pam

How pretty!! That chest is gorgeous, and every single piece on it contributes beautifully to the whole vignette. Very, very nice--love it! ~Zuni

Debbie said...

It's all really beautiful to me. I relate to the perfectionist thing. That's why half the stuff I do never makes it to my blog. I'm CONSTANTLY trying to make it look better.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love your vignette, Cindy! That cache pot is wonderful. I haven't seen anything that nice at the thrift stores here yet. Ooooh, loving the centerpiece for your tablescape for next week. Such a great container and I love hydrangeas!

Leslie's Garden said...

I think it's a wonderful vignette! I am really drawn to the painting, it's framed beautifully, too. I love it all!

Honey at 2805 said...

It's easy to see shy it makes you happy! Thank you for sharing your wonderful vignette at Potpourri Friday!

Love your chest and the little birds on top of the candy dishes. What a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day for weeks. I can't pass a candy dish full of M&M's without taking a few. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful vignette Cindy! I love that planter and of course, hydrangeas are my favorite flower! The painting and chest are fabulous!

Your vignette is charming. What a wonderful sight to greet your guests. Candy sitting in a jar would be dangerous for me. ;-)
