Sweet and Simple Valentine Vignette

Today was a day that was illuminated by Texas blue skies, radiant sunbeams, and cherry 

red cardinals decorating gray and barren trees of Winter.

Life is good, life is sweet.






I just could not think of a better way to celebrate the blessings of this day than to begin

it with a brisk walk, then creating a sweet and simple Valentine Vignette.



For this sweet and simple valentine vignette I used vintage china and Valentines.

All of these Valentine's are from my family. 


Some of these Valentines date back to my Grandmother.

The little love notes written on the back of them make me smile.






Of course a bright and brilliant primrose is always a welcome guest.






Vintage Valentine postcards, and ribbon create a small banner to accent this Valentine Vignette.





Whimsical Wonder.




Simple joys unfurl their blossoms and create childlike delight.



    Finding wonderment in gentle light, velvet green petals and golden glow treasures.




Collections thoughtfully curated throughout the years, create a sweet and simple

Valentine Vignette for this year and more to come.

Thinking of you all and wishing you a beautiful weekend.

    1. Good Morning Susan!

      We are having a glimpse of Spring here and I always get the planting bug.
      Way too early, but I satisfy those thoughts of Spring with a few treats from the gardening center!

      Happy Friday and thank you for visiting today.
      Jemma

  7. What gorgeous geraniums and primroses. You have reminded that I really need to redo my front posts. The frosts here in Fort Worth killed my red cyclamens.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Don't ya just love those vintage Valentine cards, Jemma? My sister first introduced them to me many years ago, and ever since then I was hooked. :) Your little Valentine space is so delightful. The pink geraniums and rose buds are pretty, and the gold china really adds a little something. Jess has decided that she wants Pink at her bridal shower this summer with a hot air balloon traveling theme. She's been looking on Pinterest for ideas. You're always so creative, if you have any ideas to share, let me know. This is truly a lovely post today, Jemma.

  9. Jemma I think that brisk walk filled your heart with inspiration and poetic feelings. There is nothing as refreshing as being out in nature soaking in her essence. Ahhh gentle light is dreamy and romantic and I adore your sweet pretty Valentine's vignette. Watching daily as blossoms unfurl always fills me with delight. I'm on forced Pink Tulips unfurling watch ... almost ready.
    Have a beautiful weekend my friend.

  12. OOOOO SO HAPPY! Dearest, I am late; I had to get to work at 4:00AM this morning on a lesson, and then had to run off...story of my life at the moment. But what a treat it is to come here NOW and enjoy this beautiful array of pinks. We are heading into SPRING and I will never forget the moments I spent last year getting to know you. MORE MORE MORE this year! Have a super weekend!

  24. Sweet & Simple is a perfect description. I love old-fashioned valentines, and that shade of pink on your primrose just glows! I have the same shade of pink in my favourite geranium ;) I hope you're having a wonderful week Jemma!
