Love me a sweet girly tablescape don't you? Well, that is what I am calling my tablescape. Kinda like a love-girly-valentine kinda tablescape.
One of my favorite coffee mugs actually became the inspiration for my little table.
I added a few prissy little high heel shoes, red roses and a teapot to display on this ............
Beautiful cake stand that was gifted to me at Christmas and it turned out darling!
Love the centerpiece for my girly love table as my man calls it!
Don't you just love my teapot and coffee mug?
This little gold slipper holds a sentimental value for me. Years ago a dear friend from church had a party for some ladies at her home and we all dressed up in our finest evening attire...girly, girly, girly! The hostess gave each lady that came to her party a golden slipper to remind each of us that Jesus loved us so much that He chose us to be His beloved Kingdom princesses.
I decided to use my "Scripture" plates that I used at Christmas. What better way to define "LOVE" than with the Word of God? I swapped out my red chargers for my gold chargers and paired up with gold flatware on a black runner sure did look lovely.
For those of you that KNOW that I am in the process of remodeling a small 12x12 room (which has slowed down for the moment) will be glad to know that in the midst of me CLEANING out that room that I found several packs of red heart doilies!
The Valentine name tag holders looked adorable centered on the red heart shaped doilies. I actually found the Valentine name holders last year after Valentine's day on clearance at Walgreen's.
I decided to put scripture cards in the holders.
Black goblets with red and white napkins with some LOVE on the table worked nicely.
Gold candles make anything look good!
Heart tea cup salt and pepper shakers from Cracker Barrel added with some LOVE made a nice touch.
I am kinda fond of my girly table!
I added a sweet touch to my breakfast bar.
Candles make everything beautiful to me!
I decided to add a few sweet touches to my dishes on my Baker's Rack.
A little more red and white with some LOVE gleamed in my little 3 tier basket.
Won't you join me for Coffee or Tea for Two?
Let's spell Valentine........
Valentine, Valentine, Would you be mine...I would be Thine... Then you'd be Forever my Valentine.
Then I flipped it over to see that my middle daughter who is now 32 years old with two little girls of her own had made this in elementary school for me. Well of course the tears started! Dang, I've got to where in my older age that I cry about anything these days....
This is one of my favorite versus and what a perfect piece to go with my Valentine decor.
Now I do have a HUGE PRAISE and I must share it with you. Sometimes we are so quick to ask others for prayers but so slow to PRAISE HIM so I want to PRAISE HIM!
Last Monday morning while driving to work I had a mini stroke. It came upon me so quickly and I had no clue what was happening to me except that it was something beyond my control. I will not go into a lot of details but I do want to tell you this....When I realized that I was helpless and I could not control the situation or understand the situation that I was in, I cried out to God and said, "Lord Help Me". I don't know what to do! I believe that with all that is within me that Almighty God covered me with His wings and protected me and others of what could have been fatal.
After an hour or so my speech returned to normal and my balance returned to normal. The outside of my office building took a little damage but my car did not nor did anyone else on the road. Sweet friends I drove approximately 5 miles or so while in the midst of a mini stroke. GOD TOOK THE WHEEL!
With a hospital stay resulting in test after test after test the verdict was a mini-stroke.
What does this mean for me? Well, lots of lifestyle changes for sure. Some in which needed to be changed a long time ago and some that I have struggled to change. With God's help I will take one day at a time in the changes that needs to be made in my life but for now all I can do is PRAISE HIM!
Know your body language my friends and listen to it! That's my tip for the day.
And I must say thank you! So many of you know that I only post one day a week with my blog and when my post didn't pop up you became concerned and some of you have contacted me. WOW! All I know is that had to be the spirit of God laying me on your heart.
Speaking of heart..........
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
