A PRETTY PINK VALENTINE TREE

Now I KNOW some of you
are going to be thinking...
Okay! That is TOO much.
And...it may be TOO MUCH
but  I think that 
SOMETIMES-
TOO MUCH is BETTER
than
LESS is MORE--
Doesn't make any sense?
Don't worry about it...
I never said I was going to make sense here.
Now I ask you- Is that cute, or what?
What?
More?  You want more?
Little boxes of candy tucked here and there.
And the hearts I showed you how to make
And a topper made by sweet Tete.
Tete rhymes with Sweet...
and Pete and neat and...okay..I quit
It's perfect, isn't it?
At the base is a sweet crocheted
table topper that belonged to my mother.
This was made by Lulu one year.
Every tree needs an angel
Soft and Pretty
Love it...
SEE? It's Pinkly Pretty!!
This little beauty sits in the bay window
in the front sitting room
in front of the old leaded glass window
I saved from one of the houses
we rehabbed.
The matching window had too
much damage and fell apart.
And, now that you have enjoyed 
A Bit Of Beauty
I give you 
ONE MORE BEAUT!
My understanding is that he is
STILL LOOKING FOR A DATE
for
VALENTINE'S DAY~
Anyone interested?
Anyone?
anyone?
anyone...

Have a great 
PINKLY PRETTY WEEKEND!

I like your Valentine tree and I do like pink, so it caught my interest right off, and you're the only Angel it needed.
No! No! no date for me, Tattoo's turn me OFF!

Have a Great Day, my friend,
Sylvia

Your pink tree is fantastic! Makes me want to drag my white tree out of Christmas storage and bedazzle it up!

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Glad I stopped by here today Diana. You always make me laugh! No the tree is not too much, it's really pretty and sets a festive mood to your home. I love it and of course, you had me at pink!! It really shows off your hearts too.
Ok, as for the hunky dude, I think a little less ink might be more attractive. But, chances are he will find a date! LOL!

hugs,
Sissie

Kathy said...

What a pretty Valentine's Day tree. I've never done that. Don't decorate much for V Day, just a few things here and there.

As for the hunk at the end, I'm sure someone will want him. Just not me. I've got my Joe, you understand.

Lisa~A Cottage To Me said...

Very cute tree! I had a small faux Christmas tree on my kitchen counter. I just removed the Christmas ornaments and added some shiny Hearts. It's no where near blog worthy like yours, but I liked the glow of the lights at night, so it works for me. I am just getting back into blogging after a long break and I am trying to get my readers back...seems not many are stopping by. I would love for you to stop by and see all the crazy, messy things we've been up to. I am playing catch up with my posts....lots happening! Have a delightful day!

I love it!!!! It is super cute and looks good with your leaded glass window. Very pretty. Ok for Mr. Hunk I think you should have talked to him about less is more before he visited the Tattoo Parlor lol! Happy Friday sweet friend. Enjoy the weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

Katie Clooney said...

Tooooo funny! Love the "tat" pic. Your pretty in pink pics are darling. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, dear Diana.

Lorrie said...

It's awfully pretty, the tree, I mean, not the guy looking for a date. I'll pass. Enjoy that fluffy pink tree!

Wild Oak Designs said...

I think the tree is unique and cute! Sweet idea...especially fun given that it gives you a way to keep and use valentines you receive.

I never wanted tattoos for myself, nor do I like tattoos on women. Some women think having one above the behind is hot, I think it's not

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love a white tree with PINK all over it. Makes me want to get mine out of the storage room.

Pom Pom said...

I love lots of pink! How pretty!

Simply LKJ said...

Love the "sweet" tree. Him, not so much. LOL

Connie said...

Hi Diana, your tree is so sweet and I love seeing more of your hearts. Thanks again for your tutorial.
Have a happy weekend!
Connie :)
P.S. I'll pass on the matchmaking. I like my sweetheart, balded and gray, LOL.

Chatty Crone said...

Ah no thanks on the date. I just think that true is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo gorgeous and in front of that lead glass window is just amazing. I think it is perfect!

Red Rose Alley said...

Do you know that I've always wanted a PINK tree to decorate? And then I think to myself, what am I going to do the rest of the year with a Pink tree hahaha. But this one is wonderful, Diana. It's so festive with all the ornaments, hearts, pearls, sweet little angel, and the Sweethearts candies. Don't ya just love those? You did a fantastic job making a tree in honor of this special holiday. Love it, Diana. It must make you smile every time you look over at the Bay window and see this.

You silly girl~he is not my type at all, maybe Keith Urban-lol. Love your decorations! I am having a Valentines lunch here for all the girls in the family-getting lots of goodies ready. I have the craft plan, got pretty nail polish for them today and we will have a fun lunch. Hubby will be taking out the 3 boys for lunch.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Hugs,

Carla from The River said...

Hi,
I just saw a pink tree at one of the homes I deliver Meals on Wheels meals. I loved it. The lady I deliver the meal to is such a sweetheart. She still decorates and does what she can to her home. It really is a beautiful home.
I have to share with you, we deliver the meals in a container that you can eat out of. Oh not my classy lady, she asks me to help her put it on a plate and she has her milk in a wine glass.
I just love her. And I love her pink tree. And I love your pink tree.

Happy Weekend,
Carla

Karen said...

I love the Valentine tree. We have a little one in the play room. I'm for all the color I can get during the gray winter months (especially pink!)

Beemie said...

I used to love making my own Valentines as a kid...today I make my own because I don't want to give one more penny to the card companies. There are some good ideas for me to copy.

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Love the tree, it's beautiful and I wish I had one, but I don't.

I think I will pass on the handsome guy you have on your post. Hope he gets a date LOL You are such a bad girl....

Have a great weekend Diana.

Hugs,
Mary

Katie Mansfield said...

Precious. I don't need a date but thank you for asking. :)

Jettie said...

If we buy him some clothes to cover that mess, I know a girl who would go out with him for Valentines Day.

Fun! I want a pink tree now. My sister had one for Christmas and packed it all up, too bad. I could've borrowed it and dressed it all up for Valentine's Day.

Debby said...

So pretty. I love the tree and the decorations.

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

How cute! I bet the granddaughters just love it too! We had a pink christmas tree when I was a kid in our family room. We never thought to continue to use it for Valentine's Day!
Have a great weekend!

Jann Olson said...

Well, your little pink tree is ever so 'purdy'! Love everything about it. My older sis use to do a Valentines tree and it was sweet. I bet the grandgirls think it's pretty special!!
hugs,
Jann

Renee said...

Your pink tree is so fun. You would have loved the Tate House we visited in December. It was built from pink marble from Tate Georgia. It is now an events site. We had tea and a tour there. Some pink rooms, some pink trees, other rooms with other colors. I loved it.

A Joyful Cottage said...

Cute tree. I bet the grands love it.

What a darling Valentine Tree! I don't do much in the way of seasonal decorating...never have really. Just not into it. Now, if I could start having Tea Parties again...I loved decorating for those!!

YIKES!! No date for me, please...pretty please...don't make me do it!! [pointing at my friend Shelia] LOL!!

Cranberry Morning said...

Well I've never been an advocate for less is more, which is why I'm trying to clean out 28 years worth of stuff! So much pink, pretty, and cute here, right til the very end, when I almost lost my blueberry and chocolate chip scone. Diana!

Mildred said...

Good Morning! Karen's youngest granddaughter would adore this tree. She is really into the holidays!
I would look like Mary Poppins on a date with Tattoo man! To visit my new blog (which replaces the old one) click on my name in the comment).

A Quiet Corner said...

All those pretty things remind me of my sister...always so feminine and frilly. That guy, however, is different, very uniques to say the least, everyone to his own...:)JP

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I saw some pink trees at Christmas time and thought they were so cute, but it never occurred to me to use one for Valentine's Day! I should have thought of that! Love how you've decorated it too. The angel is perfect. :)

Hugs Diane
