Happy Shelves- Valentines Style

Good Morning! TGIF!!!  It's a cool, rainy day here in SW Virginia, but fortunately where I live, it's too warm for the ice that's occurring in many parts of our state.  I am definitely not a winter person, so that suits me just fine.

This past week I put up my Valentine decorations in my Happy shelves and I also decorated my antique buffet.
I have most of my pink kitchen set on top of my cabinet.  I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see it every day!  I just added a few of my Peanuts figures and a Kewpie doll that I gussied up with a Valentines dress.
You can see my little green stove in the background!  I stuck a few vintage valentines in with my everyday décor and of course I have a Valentine's Pixie!  (I see a wayward rabbit that is photo bombing, he's jumping the gun on his season!) 
Another doll in her Valentine finery and there's Mr. Marty Mouse that I made last year.
A few more of my vintage valentines.  That guy with the red sunglasses is kind of creepy!
I put all the Valentines that I made or that someone else made and gave to me on my buffet.
I love these homemade Valentines!
This is my oldest Valentine!  It folds out to make this scene.
This is the date written on the back.  105 years old! 
Hope everyone has a great weekend!  I think DH and I are going to the home and garden show in town this weekend because there is supposed to be several plant nurseries there and I can hardly wait for spring.

Your Valentine decorations are just lovely. I've always been smitten with your dolls and toy stoves. That antique valentine is such a treasure.

Love your pink kitchen set, Linda! ♥

It sure makes me happy to see all your fun treasures! It reminds me of a visit to Grandma Patta's house. I could amuse myself for hours just looking at the little odds and ends she found out "thrifting." Nothing that I loved was a family heirloom, but I was lucky enough to receive some of those treasures when she passed away.

Oh Linda you have so many cute things! I have the same pink fridge but not the other pieces. Love all your collections and the way you have displayed everything. There is a lot of cuteness here. It makes me want to start decorating for valentines day.

That dark wooden buffet is spellbindingly beautiful. What a stunning, captivating piece of vintage furniture. I have a turn of the century kitchen hoosier (my favourite piece of furniture I've ever owned) that I like to decorate with the seasons/holidays, too, downstairs in my craft room.

Wishing you an awesome weekend and start of Valentine's season!

Hi fellow Virginian! Too bad we're at opposite sides of the state. :( I'm so glad you found my blog, so I could find you back.

Love all your sweet décor, oh much eye candy! Have to look again there is a whole lot of cute to enjoy. Love taking out my vintage and homemade Valentine's from last year too.

Your little pink kitchen makes me happy, too! And the sweet doll looks so cute. Of course, I love all of the old Valentines. I did a little decorating yesterday. It's definitely a fun holiday to decorated for. Enjoy your Sunday! Hugs!
