A Romantic Heart

 Falling In Love...
 But true love is a durable fire,
 In the mind ever burning,
Never sick,never old,never dead,
From itself never turning.
Sir Walter Raleigh
 Love is a talkative passion.
Bishop Wilson
 Could I but be,
Your little friend;
Than none would see,
Our friendship end.
Inside Valentine.

Hi Shirley,
I love this post. So beautiful. I heard you got hit with a ton of snow. Hope you have heat. We were lucky this time; we were spared. This has been a real winter.
The tea party was a great success. I will be thinking of you on Valentine's Day.
Take care.

Hi Shirley...I would love to see a photo of your cabinet with your Old Country Roses set.

I have about 8 dinner and salad plates of that pattern, plus cups, but use it only for very special occasions. I LOVE it!

Thanks for your visits to my blog and for your comments, too!

Hope you are having a nice Sunday. Susan
