I love to use handmade hearts for photographic backgrounds. Don't they look beautiful under the jewelry? I am celebrating Valentine's Day with love, jewelry, Paris and always pink...

is full of glitter!

Love for me, also, is almost anything French. Don't you love this bed? The screen behind the headboard looks like open hearts...

and this grand building I loved in Paris,
If ever
architecture could say love, this one does!

The grand archway relief detailed like the most beautiful of wedding cakes

the soft pinkish brick contrasted to the gentle patina of the limestone,

Happy Valentine's Day, and may it be

Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground, Shabby Chic Cottage , Show and Tell Friday at Romantic Home, Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage, and Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.
