Hi everyone
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines week.
I took a few photos of the beautiful roses my hubby gave me for Valentines day


I put them in various pitchers/jars on my antique shoe rack which ive turned into my dining room storage display.


I love the colours


So sweet of my hubby...


Well...
I actually picked them out for myself...
but he paid for them..
that counts right?!
lol

~ I hope you have a wonderful weekend friends ~
xo,
Rachel
