St. Valentine's Day

For the past couple of years, I have been collecting red and green samplers. The green in most of them is more of a khaki, a color that is a favorite of mine.

I didn't really do a lot of decorating for St. Valentine's Day. I did, however, pull out my samplers, and a few hearts, and an antique strawberry pin cushion. 

This sweet couple on horseback is an illustration from an early English primer...Parts of Speech. 

Hoping you have a wonderful Valentine's Day...spent with those you love...that a posy or two finds it's way to your table, as well as sufficient chocolate to make you smile...and a little candlelight too.

Enjoy the day,

  1. Love all the pictures Robyn! Your samplers are wonderful as is the tin sconce from the Gaddy's. It looks perfect where you have it displayed. Happy St. Valentine's day to you and yours. Give Annie a special hug from me. Lori

  2. Robyn,
    As always, your decorating is beautiful. Love the samplers. I am still kicking myself for the red/green sampler I passed on last fall and by the time I decided I was going to buy it, friend Bobbie already owned it. Darn. I know, the time to buy an antique is right when you see it.
    Happy Valentine's Day.
    Hugs : )
