Welcome ...........

To My Snowy Cabin in the Woods!
Don't stand out there in the cold!  Come on in....can you believe this!!! I know you've had a lot of snow, but for Cincinnati...this is a little unusual. We have had a good foot since yesterday, it's still snowing!!! and absolutely freezing.   I am sooooooo ready for Spring!
Here, have a nice warm cuppa hot chocolate.
I'm glad you stopped by to pick me up on the way to Susan's for her Tablescape Thursday.
Help yourself to a cookie in the Biscuit Keeper there. I just baked a batch of your favorite!
I know how much you love the Delft China or Blue Willow, but I must confess I love Redware more. My absolute favorite is the Brown Transferware, but that is so hard to find and when you do it's expensive.
No, these aren't old peices, believe it or not these weere found at Cracker Barrel a couple of years
The cake plate's from there too. The scallops around the top make it look like there is a peice of fabric draped over it. And the top....

....isn't it pretty?
Since it's Valentine's Week I thought I'd do a valentiney tablescape.

These are a few of my favorite things........with aValentine twist........
The velvet heart was received on our first married Valentine's with the two crystal kisses. The pink and white vintage Valentine was a surprise.

This little Chocolate Fairy is too cute and the lovely porcelain lady holds beautiful roses
The little glass bird and nest is a 1940's candy dispenser. 
can't forget the exquisite large porcelain rose and here is the cute faux teapot candy house.
Oh!, I couldn't forget this adorable angel that wears his heart on his wing.
Here's a look at the whole table again.
By the way don't forget to come back by for my Vintage Alphabet get-together on Feb. 23. for more info check it out here Remember Mr Linky will be up by 9p on the 22nd.
It's getting late. We better get to gettin, don't want to be late to Susan's Tablescape Thursday.

I really enjoyed your beautiful post today. I am in Newark, Ohio. We have about 28 inches of snow. Looking forward to spring.

Shirley said...

I love your dishes and table setting. It makes you think of Valentine. You all got a lot more snow then we did this time. I had a very light dusting this morning on the car. I didn't get a full week with the holidays and snow until the third week of January. Then we had a few days that we only worked part of the day. I feel for you all that are really getting the snow. Take care and be careful in the snow. John will be watching the race, too. They are predicting more snow for the weekend just what we need. I hope they are wrong.

Beautiful, Melody! Your Valentine treasures are just wonderful...especially those vintage hearts. I missed tablescape because, we had no power. I love that you are now joining in though.
♥, Susan

Hi Melody,

What a great assortment of goodies you have setup there, I really did want to come in and sit a spell, but I just can't get myself to leave this gorgeous weather out here....almost 70 today! Maybe you can come out here, but don't forget the goodies, cause I'm sure their better than my cooking.
