Valentine's Day Vignette

In between my regular cleaning chores and redoing the laundry room, 
I found some time to do up a little Valentine's Day decorating.  
I still have more to do but I've been so inspired by my friend, 
Carlene from Organized Clutter, and her styling of her adorable white suitcase.

I've also had this photo pinned for quite sometime. It is the styling of Cindy at Beaux R'eves

Taking some notes from both of these creative ladies, I decided to set up a vignette using the wine crate I purchased at Goodwill some time ago.

I set the crate upon a red tablecloth and added some lacy material that belonged 
to Mr. B's grandmother.

I layered in some of my silver plated trays and bowls.  All were found at auctions or thrift stores. I also used my two rose heart plates from Home Goods.  
I used them last year too in my china cabinet.

A sweet little cherub and some roses finish off my little vignette.
I love how it sparkles. And of course I love all of the symbols of the day of love!
