VALENTINE TABLE

DON'T YOU LOVE THESE RED TWISTED STEM VASES? RETAIL PRICE WAS $40.00, BUT I PAID 97 CENTS FOR ALL THREE-YEAH TOTAL AT AN AFTER CHRISTMAS SALE. GUESS THEY DIDN'T THINK THEY COULD BE USED AT ANOTHER HOLIDAY.
I GOT THE RED BEADING GARLAND THAT I WRAPPED AROUND THEIR BASE WHEN A FLOWER SHOP WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. I THINK THIS CHINA IS PERFECT FOR VALENTINE'S WITH IT'S LITTLE RED RIBBONS AROUND THE FLOWERS. IT IS OLD LEES SPRAYS BY ROYAL DOULTON, MADE IN ENGLAND.
AS YOU CAN SEE THE LITTLE TREAT I HAD TO GO WITH OUR COFFEE MIGHT BE A LITTLE SKIMPY. THESE ARE MY VERY FAVORITE KISSES-REALLY HARD TO FIND AROUND HERE. EVERY TIME I FIND SOME I BUY THREE OR FOUR BAGS AND DOLE THEM OUT TO MYSELF. OF COURSE SINCE I HAVE BEEN IN DUE TO OUR ICE STORM I KINDA DOLED OUT MORE THAN I SHOULD TO MYSELF.OH WELL MAYBE I HAVE A COUPLE MORE BAGS HIDDEN SOMEWHERE!

You got some really good deals there and I love that chocolate too. The vases are going to get a lot of use.

I love picking up red treasures after Christmas. Your stems are so pretty and a lovely compliment to that gorgeous china!

Lovely! I don't use reds often, but love them at this time of year. And are those cherry cordial kisses? Mmmmm... Of course I can't have them, but I did have a raspberry hershey hug (mostly white chocolate) yesterday - yum!
