Love on a Victorian Vanity Tray

A pair of vintage hearts, one a cherished brass heirloom, the other  a vintage rhinestone pin always find their way into our Valentine decor. They make each display look so very special.
 A few personal additions make this year's Valentine's day centerpiece a new favorite for me.



 A vintage Victorian vanity tray is the base for my LOVE vignette.

The mirror is still dusted with snow from the Christmas display that it held.

The card plays "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Bros. and makes my heart sigh every time it's opened. The mini canvas art is one that I made for last Valentine's day. It was a part of our Valentine's day, dinner for two, tablescape....and yes, that's my honey and me!

 I think it looks just right with the winter theme that's still going on in our living room. 

The mantel and fireplace are all dressed up in red and white and waiting for you to see. 

This glammed up pillar candle on my vintage, venetian tray is a peek for you to see.


 I'll be back to share it all with you...it looks really, really pretty!

I have tray very similar to yours, have gotten few of them at our local thrift store. Use them all but last one found is on our dresser with my pretties.
Your tray looks very pretty and special. How long have you and your hubs been together? That card is absolutely gorgeous and how great it plays song, a keeper for sure. Your other tray is really pretty also, love things like that, can pretty them up very nicely for special times. Worth keeping them around.
Seeing your trays all snazzy inspires me to do something special with mine for Valentines day.
Happy weekend

This is such a unique idea to display Valentine's keepsakes! (Also, can I say how much I'm loving that blinged out candle?) Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday!
