Happy February, sweet friends!!! Hopefully, your month is off to a fantastic beginning. This week on the blog is all about Valentine’s Day. I am participating in two different blog hops that are sure to get you ready for the big day. The first one is a vintage inspired Valentine’s Day and the second one is a Valentine’s tablescape blog hop. I will be featuring my table tomorrow, but for today I want to invite you to a vintage inspired Valentine’s Day tea. This fun vintage inspired hop is being hosted by my blogging friend, Amber, at Follow the Yellow Brick Home. She has a gorgeous home and loves vintage treasures a much as I do.
Why don’t you come in out of the cold and enjoy a warm cup of tea and some friendly conversation? If you are visiting from Decorate and More with Tip, welcome! I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit.
Today’s tea is a mix of vintage items with an emphasis on Valentine’s Day. Gracing the tea table, you will find my silver service. I love any excuse to use it!
Bouquets of pink roses are placed throughout the table to add a pretty touch.
Lots of vintage teacups are scattered about to enjoy a delicious cup of tea.
An Ex Voto is placed on the tea table to join the other vintage items. It was a gift from my sweet Valentine, Mr. Bleu. The sacred heart is from France and has an antique French bible page attached to the inside. The history of the French Sacred Heart can be traced back to the 11th century. They were used and continue to be used today to carry devotional objects and to give thanks for granted wishes, prayers, and intentions.
This weekend, while antiquing, I found this precious cherub clock. It is very old, and in in dire need of repair. However, I adore clocks and just couldn’t pass it by. I have a collection of antique clocks. Not all of them work, but I still admire them for their craftsmanship and beauty. They make wonderful additions to French Country vignettes.
I am so happy that you joined me for a visit this morning. Be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see my Valentine’s Day table. A list of both blog hop schedules is posted below. I know you will find lots of beautiful Valentine’s Day inspiration. May you all have a happy and blessed day!!!
