Pink tulips

I'm admiring these lovely pink tulips that I picked up yesterday.  I couldn't resist.  They are so happy looking in this ironstone pitcher.
Even the sunlight is casting a happy glow on the diningroom bench.


Still playing with the blue/gray....
and trying to decide if if will stay or go....




A pretty teacup in shades of blue placed on the garden seat...


Made some paper cones for Valentine decorations in my booth.
Plopped in a glass vase they look kinda pretty...


Okay...it's time to get out this week and make, create, write, photograph, draw, paint or find something wonderful and share it with all of us.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway.

~~hugs!~~

Tulips, pink of course, are one of my favorites! I planted over 100 pink tulips in my garden~they don't last forever so every few years I add a new batch. Sissie, I think you should do a post on how to make those valentine cones, I would like to see more!

Sissie, that is a beautiful vignette with the lovely pink tulips. That is a very pretty shade of pink. Speaking of color, I like the blue-gray color you are using. It looks very calming and seems to blend nicely with your serene surroundings. I always seem to come away from your blog with at least one or two great ideas for decorating my space.--- Shannon
