Teacup bird house lace n flowers.....

Sometimes beauty is all around us. It's just there in front of our eyes, but sometimes we need a little nudge to pay attention..........a gentle reminder to stop slow down and smell the not forget beauty in our lives all around us, everywhere, if we care to notice.  We live hasty & busy lives.

It is a gift in itself when we are able to just slow down long enough to savor beauty, no matter where it is found.

So it pays to listen to our sweet little beauties when they whisper to us to I am glad I listened. Because together these beauties spoke in volumes!

Oh, such sweet tiny hand painted roses!

The chippy ole birdhouse, with its cute heart-shaped door has come out to help make a theme - just in time for St. Valentine's Day!

A cherished heart-shaped Battenburg lace "Friends" doily that my dear friend MD gave to me at last year's Valentine tea party......

And this is so the teacup lovers will  know who is the oldest classic beauty here today:

The lovely fluted lines of your teaset is so endearing to the heart as is the heart-shape friendship doily..There's nothing like lace and china to warm the soul....and of course a sweet note from the songbirds that might come to live in your darling birdhouse...I'd say your Valentine Day going to be perfect...
