Happy Valentine's Day!!



Happy Valentine's Day!!


I hope you're spending the day with those you love πŸ’•,  loving your self πŸ’ž and loving life πŸ’—.

Aren't these a pretty colour?



Here's the card I made up for TP


Recognise the picture?
Yes, it's the Valentine's morning of my dreams, posted when I was BEDROOM DREAMING, HERE.

I kinda thought I wouldn't awake transported to that dream bedroom and to the flowers and that breakfast in bed ...


So here's one I prepared earlier!

Yes, I prepped up flowers and Danish pastries (TP has a very sweet morning tooth!) yesterday when TP was out.
I hid the flowers and pastries in the bedroom next door, then sneaked out for them whilst TP made the early morning coffee.

And the coffee was certainly early (pensioner early!)
Bertie the cat was super excited this morning, perhaps because Valentine's, or Catentine's, is a big thing in Cat World*.  
So by 6.21 a.m. we succumbed to his exhuberance and coffee was a tad earlier the normal.

(*Actually TP just thought Bertie wanted his breakfast and as loving and romantic as Bertie is, I rather suspect TP is right on this one.)


But this is a chance to show you my grey wall.  

From the moment it was finished and everything was put back in place, we've been  asking ourselves kicking ourselves as to why we didn't paint it darker sooner.   Everything comes alive and looks sort of richer and classier against the dark grey backdrop - the brass wall lights and sockets, the painting ... 

and the old brass bedstead! (The little hanging pouches are there in an attempt to minimise the rattling). 

Since I first saw the bedstead showcased by the grey I have been mumbling that it looks really pretty now and maybe we don't need a whizzy new bed after all.  
You can imagine how this is going down in the Pout household ...!!!





It's now a bedroom for for a pussycat.


A la perchoine,
Mary x πŸ’.

  1. The bedroom wall looks great - especially like the co-ordination of the cat. Love - Jill stylishatsixty

    1. You are incredibly kind, perhaps it helps to accept that
      neither of us are romantics! Sophie sounds a cute dog who loves her brothers.
      Wishing you a week filled with love, x.

  3. Your Valentine's Day breakfast looked wonderful and delicious! But blimey 6.21 am is pretty early by anyone's standards.
    TP's Valentine card is beautiful Mary, clever you.

    I love your dark grey wall - and your bed. My daughter has a few dark grey walls in her house and you're right; the dark grey does make colours/items/furniture stand out. She has a dark grey grey wall in her downstairs loo with a rustic looking white mirror and it looks fantastic.

    Have a great weekend.

    1. Thank you Vronni, I always make up Moonpig cards for him but sometimes they're slow to materialise due inspo block.
      Your daughter's loo sounds so pretty, seems she's got a flair for homemaking and decor.
      Wishing you a week of joy and country rambling, x.

  5. The paint colour looks lovely with the bed! It sounds like a wonderful (although early!) start to Valentines day. I have little kids so I'm usually up a lot earlier than 6am though, haha! :)

    Happy Valentine's day :)

  7. Happy belated Valentine!! The colour of the roses is stunning; I have never seen them as vibrant as that. I'm a bit partial to orange as a Dutch person. Loving them. Sounds like you had a lovely start to the day and good to see Bertie looking so perky!
