Never have I been so thrilled to wave goodbye to January.  The cold, long and dark days coupled with the covid pandemic have been a heavy load for much of us to carry.

Today though is 1st February, a new month, one filled with promise and hope of brighter days ahead. At present my head is filled with love hearts, pink bows and all things pretty! Yes readers, I am thinking about Valentine’s Day!

The most divine Valentine’s day tablesetting, “Ribbons Ribbons Ribbons” by my dear friend Nessie Alexander of Pale Blue Gingham

I was inspired to pen this blog post to inspire you to create a pretty tablesetting for the occasion or to simply bake something wonderfully delightful.

I am sharing with you some of my favourite sources of inspiration: ladies and designer’s whom I just love to follow and consider to be among the finest homemakers and tastemakers.
