I just arrived from Illinois the other night, from visiting my mom who was sick in the hospital with pneumonia and fluids on both lungs. She really progressed very slowly at first so John and I ended up staying there for a whole month. Thank God for retirement that we are able to do that. My mom's chest xray is normal now but she is still in rehab but should be able to go home pretty soon. Thank for those who prayed for her recovery.
I just set the table in the kitchen 's breakfast nook for Valentine. I set it for 4 in case my daughter Tina and her hubby Scott from next door will join us.
The plate chargers are enamel from Homegoods, bought sometime last year.
I thought this Lladro dancing couple would make a romantic centerpiece and of course there has to be a heart so I added the ceramic heart that John gave me from a while back.
I had a $30 Homegoods reward dollars so John and I swang back there and I bought the small wine glasses with Bohemian painting and design, plus a few other things to use up the rewards money.
Beaded napkin rings from Pier One. They must be at least 9 years old.
White birds for salt and pepper.
I love this linen tablecloth. I love the mix of embroideries and lace. I bought it while antiquing with a blogger friend, Vanna in Seattle, a few years ago.
Wanting to use red, I picked our casual red flatware bought from Kohl's a few years ago.
The plates are made by Wm Guerin & Co, Limoges, France.
For the tea, I decided to use Spode's Emma's Garland tea set but I stayed with Limoges teacup and saucer that matches the dinnerware set.
Thanks again for your visit. I always appreciate your comments. I would also like to thank the hostesses of the memes that I like to join.
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!
