I *heart* Valentines Day......

As a few of you might remember, my four foot Christmas tree stays up year round in my craft room.....

I thought it was time to get out the Valentine ornaments and dress it up for a few weeks.....

So, I layed a few of them out on the chair.....hmmmmm, many are old, but I still love their look.....



Up on the tree they went.....



I even moved my "pink" basket next to the tree....they are all beautiful shades of pinks.....very fitting for the season of amour..


And here is a look at things in the dark with just the white tree lights glowing.... This is my view from my stitch chair....



I hope everyone is enjoying their winter stitching projects....and I would like to take this time for a personal thank you for all the wonderful comments and words of inspiration you offer me..

Many stitching challenges have been made, both on personal levels and throughout various blogs....

Just enjoy your time sitting and stitching....

I know I do~~~


((Hugs)),  Faye

Wonderful Valentine tree. I think I may need to do some Valentine designs.

Great Valentine tree! I have hopes of making some valentine ornaments, but so far they are only in my thoughts and dreams. Hopefully seeing yours will give me inspiration.

Love the ornies. I don't have many valentines hearts. I will have to put those on the list. Hearts are my favorite shape. The tree is so pretty.

Lee said...

Oh my gosh! Best Valentine stitching collection EVER! It looks great, Faye. Just the thing to perk up a room after the holidays.

Christine said...

What a beautiful space you have created to stitch in! Thank you for sharing it in pics!

Jennifer said...

Beautiful pics, Faye! So inspiring.
I have not ever kept a tree up after Christmas but this year I kept a really old skinny silver one up in a guest bedroom/studio and it sparkles so much I might keep it up all year. Need to add Love Tokens I've been designing on it. It would be perfect.

Enjoy your evening.
Jennifer

Lesleyanne said...

Your tree looks gorgeous. Love the ornaments. I agree, its about the enjoyment.

Denise said...

How could you ever fall into a stitching slump with that gorgeous tree in your view. You inspire me to do more finishing and stitch my little heart out! Wow!

Lois said...

Your tree is so lovely!

Bertie said...

Love your Valentine ornaments, not long now:))

Giovanna said...

What a great idea! It looks lovely!

Nancy said...

You have a beautiful collection of amour! I love how they look on your tree. I think the older ones would reflect past stitching days and how your taste has changed and deserve a spotlight just as much as the new. What a fun idea your pink basket is!

Peggy Lee said...

Oh my...those Valentines ornaments are just gorgeous! You are such an inspiration to me...more than you probably realize.

That is so cool that you have room to keep a tree up all year round.

It's beautiful.

Deb said...

Oh my goodness, what a beautiful tree!! Some of those ornaments may be older, but they're all so beautiful!!! I think it's a wonderful idea of have a tree up year round.

linenstitcher2 said...

What a great collection, Faye! If I had such a beautiful assortment of ornaments, I'd leave them up year round as well. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Carol said...

I love each and every one of your "love" ornaments, Faye! Would you believe I don't have a single Valentine's piece! Every one that I've stitched, I've given away...

It must be so nice to sit and stitch in your craft room with the soft glow of your seasonal tree--how relaxing :)

Bekca said...

Your tree is a great way to display your stitched pieces. They all look perfect in the glow of the lights. Happy stitching to you :)

BrendaS said...

What a beautiful set of Valentine ornaments. They look so pretty on your tree. I also love your little basket of pretty "pink" things too.

Have a great day:))

Myra said...

Looking good! I like that you can use a lot of your red/white things from Christmas for Valentine's Day too. :o)

Michelle said...

Love this!! Thanks for the reminder to get out my Valentine's decorations. The tree is so sweet with all your sweet stitched pieces.

PegC said...

Love the whole idea--AND being able to see so many of your finishing techniques.

Beautiful ornaments. Beautiful tree. What a fabulous sight to see when ever you sit and stitch. Love it.
