One of the the first blogs I visited regularly before I even had my own was Between Naps on the Porch. I love her posts, her home and the many other homes she shares. But my favorite post is every Thursday. She does Tablescape Thursday. Often it is her own, but she also shares others too.
I usually do a centerpiece for each holiday, but don't always put on the place settings because I have grandkids here so often, but I got in the mood when I did my candy counter and I had all the "stuff" so here goes.
I just love this little girl. I bought her a few years ago and she's always a part of my display somewhere for Valentines Day.
I only set 4 place settings because I only had 4 each of the white dishes. I just found them at Home goods a few weeks ago for 14.99. I think they were called Basketweave by Gibson.
This is a sweet little milk glass candy dish. I have a collection of different ones, but this is my favorite. I bought it in Sacramento on a fun trip with my friend Gail @ Victorian at Heart.
I saved the best for last, although it isn't the best picture. I wanted the monogram to show, but you can barely make it out. We received 8 of these for a wedding gift in 1968. I still have all 8 in perfect condition. We've never used them much, but they have probably been moved over 20 times. They are an odd size, not big enough for a water and too big to be considered a juice glass, but because it's for Valentine's Day and they have both our initials, I set my table with them.

Speaking of sentimental...I am saving the most sentimental of posts for Sunday night. I have only 2 pictures, but a very romantic story to tell.
Happy Valentines Day
