Amour

To me February means Valentine's Day, and the French say it best, AMOUR. It seems everywhere I go  I find Inspiration for decorating, sending cards to family and friends and making a little Vignette of Amour in my kitchen, (where I spend most of my time). Its where my apple (computer) resides.
I am so Blessed with such Loving Family and Friends, I want to share with you special gifts of Amour I have been given over the years.
Amour is spread throughout my home in my decor. I love to decorate with Cherubs. When My Son and Daughter-in-Law were married I decorated with Cherubs, Ivy and Flower Pedals.  I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photographs.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

  3. I just ran across this searching for cherubs by Hayes Parker. I found a lamp in a thriftstore that was signed and I've been trying to find out more about him. Those are just like the ones on my lamp :)

  4. Wow, you are very lucky to find your lamp in a thrift store. His work is very expensive. I sure would love to see a snap. Thanks for your note.
