Saying Goodbye to my Snow

I am getting the "itch" to decorate for Valentine's Day.  So I am packing up the Snowmen and the White.  I wanted to share for Tabletop Tuesday at Marty's my buffet and coffee table in the Living Room all dressed in whites.  This really is a favorite display of mine and I am a little sad that it has to be put away...but time doesn't stand still does it?

 Does this look a little different.  Yesterday I did get a "birthday present".  More about that later but do you see it?
This beautiful new white pitcher.  I KNEW exactly where it was going!
I do love my Valentine's items though.  February is one of my favorite months.  It is the LOVE month and my birthday month.  I was an only child, so I feel it is only appropriate that I celebrate my birthday ALL month, not just on one little ole day!  I should copy Jodie....a birthday present to open every day of the month!!!  No, that won't be happening here....but the hearts and reds are begging to come out and play!  You will see them soon!!

I love all of your snowmen and whites and the new pitcher is so pretty! I also love the wool rug your coffee table sits on!

February is my birthday month, too!! I agree, let's celebrate all month long!

Ceekay it was so much fun getting to spend sometime with you Saturday. It was such a blessing getting together and having some girl time!!

Well it sounds like you are going to have a wonderful Birthday month with all the celebrating!!

Love your sweet white vignettes but can't wait to see your reds!! I am still trying to find my few Valentines decorations. I cannot believe I didn't put them with all the other decor- but so far they have not shown up! Will have to look some more as soon as I get home.

Bee blessed

Hello! I came by for a visit after reading Marty's blog at "A Stroll Thru Life". I love your blog! Your words reminded me of myself! Haha! I have Valentine's on my mind as well, and will packing up my snowmen and my blue & white "snow" theme, this week. Kinda' sad. :( Another thing that caught my eye in your blog is that you are an ONLY CHILD just like me!! I love connecting with other "onlies"! Happy Birthday, too! :)

Hi Ceekay, I love all your pretty vignettes and the whites are so that.

I adore Valentines, too. It is one of my favorite holidays.

Oh, I got the pillow on my blog from Kirkland's.

Happy Monday.

Hugs, Barb ♥

Hi Ceekay,
Everything looks so pretty that I wouldn't want to put it away. I'm partial to white, so I'm loving y
our vingettes.

I think that you should get a gift everyday in February! Why not, you deserve it!

It is so pretty Ceekay. I love the buttons in a jar.

Custom Comforts said...

I know how you feel about putting away the winter whites, but I am really glad to put winter behind us and exchange it for brighter colors and warmer weather again. Unfortunately, that's still a couple months away. Your whites look beautiful and I'm looking forward to seeing your Valentine decorations.

Okay. .. I'm quite smitten with all your whiteness and SNOW items in today's post! I guess what I get for skimming (instead of reading) is the fact that I thought you had put it all away and you were showing us an early Valentine's Day post. I almost MISSED this lovely post. Good thing the MOUSE and I don't get along on my arthritis days! HuH?
Lovely white, elegant accessories.
Thank you Ceekay!

Becca said...

Everything looks beautiful, Ceekay! The buttons ... keys ... pinecones and cloches. You've captured winter whites so well. Thanks for sharing, Becca

Your snowmen and white items are so nice. I can see why you hate to put them away.


Sherry said...

You have some very pretty displays. I have done some of the very same things that you have here. I would love to try the pin cushion in the pitcher, that is adorable. The vintage books are so easy. You will love how they look. Thanks for stopping by.

Donnie said...

I love all your whites too but I'm excited to see what you do with the reds.

Olive Cooper said...

Ceekay I am just coveting that tiny wee bird is darling. The cloches are gorgeous. I have not one valentine item to decorate with. You must decorate for me too♥

Chandy said...

Ceekay, that is so darling! I'm itchin' too! V-Day is so fun to decorate for and I can't wait! Good luck with yours!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh I adore your collection of hat pins!

Honey at 2805 said...

Very pretty, Ceekay! What day is your Birthday? (I think Jodie is still opening presents).

Marydon said...

G'day Ceekay ~
You've all had some great visits lately I see ... wish I'd been there to meet Mary & Karen ... another day.

I love your hat pins & snowman ... lovely vignettes, so beautifully presented.

I hope all is well with you. Have a beautiful day ~

I just love all the whites together! Hate to see them go but will look forward to seeing all the reds come out to play.
Love the cloches and the monagrams.

bj said...

I am totally in love forever with your little birdbath with the birds. My mom had one a little bit like it...wonder what happened to it?

My little boy's birthday is in Feb., too...he will be 47..bwaaaaaaa

Sarah said...

I'm about to pack up the snowmen here as well and bring out the pinks and reds. Love the whites though. I look forward to see what you'll have for Valentines. Guess February is your birth month. ;-)

Liz said...

Very Cute! I have that same little bird bath! :)

Have a great week!
