Flowers, Love and Valentine Gift Ideas

January 29, 2014
I am so glad that you stopped by today and I also have a confession.

Valentines Day is one of my favorite Holidays!

I have been enjoying reading poems, baking, taking a few photos 

and doing a little investigating as to what gifts are available for this 

official season of love. 

Now that it is all put together I am sharing it all with you!

  10. Jemma,
    Your Valentine ideas are clever and thoughtful ones. First of all, your pink flowers are so pretty, and I love the Max Muller quote. That heart cup is so sweet - I've been looking all over for a Valentine cup to drink my tea and coffee in. This children's book looks so delightful. Do you know that I still have the books that I read to my kids when they were little? I just could never part with them. The Robert Browning quote is my favorite. My husband gave me a stone with that quote on it, and to this day, I still have it in my back yard.

    Your posts are like a breath of fresh air to me........and you are such a special friend.


  11. I love Valentine's Day, too - just did my post yesterday! The quote, "Grow old with me, the best is yet to be" is my favorite quote to say to my hubby. I'm going to make him a handmade Valentine's day card this year and I think I'll put that quote on it. :-)

  12. You are a gal that definitely enjoys all the holidays and always finds such neat ways to celebrate....I love the sugar cookies and the book about the ways I love you....such good ideas.....My grandchildren get most of my Valentine spirit. I like to find ways to surprise them.....

  13. I sure do enjoy coming here and seeing all of the pretty items! You have to send me a Valentine's for February!! I love your photos. sandie.

  14. "At Home With Jemma" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

  15. thanks for leaving me some love on my blog .... your blog is brilliant , full of color, inspiring ideas and magic .. love it x

  16. Jemma,

    You are such a sweetHEART, yourself! Such pretty vignettes, with fresh flowers, cards and mugs! Love your valentine doily collage, so playful and bright! My favourite gift idea is the tiny, 'What I Love About You' booklet; how cute and creative! Thank you for all these beautiful ideas of inspiration for all the different loves of our lives!

    Wishing you a lovely weekend!


  17. I'm a sucker for Valentines too Jemma. Such a bright spot in the middle of the bleak months :) You've got lots of great inspiration here!

  18. I have that same vase and can never get flowers to look quite right in it. Now that I've seen how you arranged yours I am going to try it that way. It looks so pretty. We don't really celebrate Valentines day.

  19. Lovely collection of gift ideas! My dog would like the gift #3 . I love the pretty flowers and the lovely quotes! Have a happy day and week ahead!

  20. Sweet Jemma, I love Valentines Day also! As much as I love flowers, I'd have to go for the sugar cookies. Homemade sugar cookies are one of my favs! I loved all of the wonderful quotes! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
