Home Sweet Home #53

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I hope you get some sweet treats on Valentine's Day next week.

I am showing off some of my vintage German Valentines today.  I picked them up years ago for very little at a flea market.

Valentines Day wouldn't be complete without some roses.

Now, I would like to feature some posts that got my attention from last week's Home Sweet Home!  

Catherine of Freddy & Petunia transformed a storage piece into this stunning cottage style furniture.

Audrey at Timeless Treasures turned a mailbox into a Valentine Greetings Planter.

Bella at Bella's Rose Cottage had a lovely post on Groundhog's Day.  She mentions roses are never a bad idea.  I second that !

Being a cottage style fan I was most excited to see Betsy of Betsy Speert's Blog link up.  She is a designer that has been published in Traditional Homes and House Beautiful.  Her cottage style interiors show that cottage style can have a timelessness about it that will forever look good.  Featured here is a kitchen she did for Aeorsmith's bass guitarist Todd Hamilton and his wife Terry.

Anita of Far Above Rubies  shows off her English Cottage style kitchen. 
Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!   It is wonderful to have you here!
I will join these ladies today:
 Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Open House Party at No Minimalist Here

Hi Sherry:

FYI I have a link back to your blog in my post, but it's not accepting it. I had used this option on Seasonal Sundays for a bit and then kept running into similar problems. Since, as Linky warns, it's only in the testing stage, there can be problems.
