i created a valentines vignette with some cherished items i inherited from my grandmother.
i remember as a little girl always admiring her artwork and decorative artifacts and although they might not match my current "style" they still hold a dear spot in my heart.
this porcelain pitcher from clementson bros, england was sent with my cousin when she traveled from uruguay to my wedding in NJ/NY by my grandmother. she remembered how i always loved it and wanted me to have it in my new home as a new bride.
since i was just entering my shabby chic phase this fit in perfectly and i loved the thoughtfulness and meaning behind it.
the rose & lily still life painting came home with me when i closed out my parents' estate in uruguay over a decade ago. it totally reminds me of her house when I was a young girl.
i also brought home the rose chassis that i use as a votive holder when i bring it out.
all these items have a romantic feel to them and i included a few hearts i have to bring the valentines theme full circle.
makes me smile and i can feel her looking down at me and it warms my heart.
it is at the edge of a petal that love awaits
