The Valentine Hutch...and Pugs...

With Valentines Day fast approaching, it was time for a few changes to my hutch!  I kept the red and white I used over the holidays, adding some pink and some vintage valentines...

I added some pretty pink glass pieces...

and another one of my chocolate covered cherry boxes...

and some sweet dried roses.

This lovely old teapot was my mother-in-law's...

I added some milk glass pieces in, too!

And look at Bailey and Sophie, all dressed up for Valentines Day!

These sweet little fleece ponchos are handmade by volunteers for K9 Rescue of Faribault County !  This organization is selling these as a fundraiser!  This organization is strictly foster based as they seek forever homes for dogs.  They have many fleece patterns available, and are only $10 - $15 each, depending on size.  If you would like to help them raise funds, and receive a cute coat for your dog,  you can click on the link above for more info!  My dogs love theirs!

Until next time...

  16. Am I the only one who thinks it's ironic you put the box of candy on a scale?

    Hugs, Cindy

  20. You've once again created a delightful mood with your collections. I love the old candy boxes.
    We were admiring the map we got from you as the centennial for Arizona Statehood is on Valentine's Day.

  21. Your hutch looks so festive with the red, white, and pink. I have been searching for redwork linens for a bedroom, and spied some lovely pieces tucked in among your treasures!

    Your dogs look quite fetching in their coats. Do they wear the polar fleece boots, too? I was forever backtracking in the snow to find those missing boots!

  22. I would love to have 2 little sweet pugs again, both Sophie & Bailey are so cute they remind me of my Ollie & Sissy my past little pugs. I have been going to contact pug rescue in my area.
    I have 2 little fleece coats already I just need the pugs.
    Happy valentines to you all

    Your hutch is wonderful as always

  23. Love your hutch and the chocolate covered cherry boxes, my dad's favorite! But I'm wondering if they have the coats that would fit me!! LOL!! xoxo

    Just found your lovely blog...and am your newest follower!

  25. Love all of this vintage goodness. Reminds me of my hutch shelf too. I just love your blog. I would like to maybe swap with you sometime if you like to do that kind of thing. I host swaps during the year sometimes, and just feel like we have lots in common. I am your newest follower! Thanks for visiting my blog an becoming a follower there.

  26. Linda,
    Your hutch looks great! My fave is the cherry box. I had one years ago and gave it to a friend. Wouldn't it be great if they made repros of them again? Thank you for your support on FB. It's a learning curve for me! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
