Romancing The Valentine's Day

Happy St. Valentine's Day

I'm participating in Lesley's Flatwoods Folkart
Romancing the Blog Party...

It's been raining here for days & days
Hurry, don't get wet!

Come in, get warm & enjoy yourself

I've lit candles for the party
(smells like vanilla ;)

Help yourself to some Italian candies - yum!

We'll have a glass of Elderflower water
my friend, Tina, sent me from Sweden
in glasses found on an antiquing trip

Don't you think special things
taste better in vintage containers?

Little bits of love all around the Maison

Make sure you say "hi" to Zeke
He's a real romantic & loves his photo ops
(he doesn't have a choice...)

Before you go, make sure to take a little gift
I've made for the shoppe...

Petite Marie Antoinette Vintage Bottles
(the middle one is off to cher ami ;)

And last, but not least...
A little necklace I've made just for you

This St. Valentine's Day
and remember...

The purpose of
life is to increase
the warm heart
-Dalai Lama

Thank you so much for visiting with
My Petite Maison!

Merci, Lesley for putting on the party!

Happy Valentine's Day Tracie! Everything at your "party" is so stunningly beautiful...the list would go on and on of all I adore! Now that I see Zeke at your party, I am feeling quite a bit guilty that I forgot to include Renoir at mine...ooops! And I can't wait for sweet Marie to come and live here with us...she is a beauty! Enjoy your day and do something romantic...I am sure you will ;)

Hi Tracie,
I lost you for a couple of months. I had a blog fire and lost most of my addresses! So glad to find you again, and on this most special day!

Tracie, it's all so lovely! And Zeke is soooo much cleaner than our white doggie. In fact, I don't think he's really even "white" any more. ;)

Have a sweet, sweet Valentines Day. Blessings... Polly
