  1. I always leave your blog feeling so inspired! I love your tree and the sentimental handmade ornaments from your mom and grandparents. What a wonderful, creative a treasure! Wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day!

      That’s the best compliment, Lynne; thank you! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  2. Only you and your fabulousness would have pink trays for the wall too. I can’t get enough of your cabinet either. I need to find myself a scale. Everything looks amazing and so fun yet romantic at the same time. LOVE IT!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you enjoyed it, Cindy! Yes, I have vintage trays for all the looks;) Old scales are the best; you totally need one! I still need a green one…and maybe a red?

  3. Lora, your Valentine tree brings tears to my eyes thinking about your family bringing it to you for Valentine’s Day. So sweet and loving. I always love seeing your hutch decorated for the seasons and holidays. Mixing Christmas basics with Valentines Day is so wonderful. You bring vintage items to life in your displays and vignettes.

      I appreciate that, Debra; thank you!

    Thanks for all the good ideas!
    I keep a lighted, seasonal tree up (about the size of your valentine’s tree) most of the year. I start with fall decorations, then Christmas, followed by valentine’s and finally Easter decorations after which the tree comes down for the summer. My husband is used to hauling in the “seasonal bins” and knows Sept. 1 that the fun begins! Over the years, I have found most of my decorations at $ Tree–.
    Thinking of you and also remembering your dear Mom, my “Columbia Sister”. Kathy

      So good to hear from you, Kathy! Mom was definitely an amazing seasonal decorator, too; totally where I get it from! So fun to hear about your seasonal tree; glad your hubs is a good sport about it, too! Thanks!

  5. So many cute ideas, love what you have done in each room. I don’t do much but you gave me some new things to do.

      Glad you got some ideas, Marlene!

  6. You have so many inspiring ideas Lora, and those lanterns! I can just imagine how beautiful they look at night. So romantic!! It’s always a treat to see how you style your vintage treasures for each holiday!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Michelle! Yes, I was just tickled to figure out how to get light inside them:)

  7. These are all such fabulous ideas, Lora! I love that you leave your tree and all the twinkling lights up too. I do the same. There is nothing like being able to snuggle up and enjoy the glow during winter storms, you know? Plus don’t even get me started on all the pops of pink. You know I’m crazy for it! Can’t wait to incorporate some of these ideas at my home too. Big hugs and hope you have the best Valentine’s Day, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I love pink, too, CoCo and this time of year I just crave it! Cozying up by the lights on winter nights is the best:)

  8. So charming and pretty, Lora!!! I love my dishes too and use them more for decor than actual eating 🙂 The idea of a Valentine’s tree is adorable! Also, those lanterns were such a fun find!! Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, it’s nice to enjoy the tree a little bit longer;) Thanks, Rachel!

  9. Lora, I would love to visit your home. First, to chat with you and second, to get a real-life look at all your beautiful, cozy-looking decor. You have an art for filling your home with meaningful things. So fun to visit!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Yvonne! Oh, that would be so fun;) And you’d have to swing over to my neighbor’s, too; your blog is her favorite!

  10. Lora this post is just chock full of wonderful ideas! I love the vintage lanterns and all your gorgeous pops of pink. I can’t wait to incorporate some of these fabulous ideas into my own kitchen.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura! Excited to enjoy the sweet pretty for another month:)

  11. Great ideas, Lora. Your home always looks so warm and cozy. It reminds me of going home to my mom. Blessings to you, my friend.
