~ Valentine's Day Decorating

The Decorated House ~ Valentine's Day Decorating with Mercury Glass, Antique Keys and a Rose
Mercury Glass Hearts,
Antique Skeleton Keys
a Simple Beautiful Rose

There always seems to be an abundance of beautiful roses for sale about this time each year. It may be that with trying to time roses to be in  the perfect pre-full bloom stage for Valentine's Day, growers have to stagger the bloom times and lots of roses are ready for market now! On the last trip to Costco's they had beautiful roses in bundles of 2 dozen for $17.  Personally I'd rather have a nice dinner or a special gift instead of sweet hubby spending a $100 more on rose delivered on Valentine's Day. The ones from Whole Foods are about the same price for 2 dozen, and so far they are holding about the same, and are opening up better. 

See Y'All Soon~
