MY HEART FOUND YOU...

Today I set a special table for Mr ALC and myself to celebrate a just because  I Heart you Day
I choose beige, brown and red
I used a thrift store plate with a ruffled edge, added a brown transferware salad plate and topped it with a red heart bowl
The brown transferware plates were different on each setting
I kept the centerpiece simple
A red candle on a thrifted holder
and my sweet Valentine card from Mr ALC
We may have been late having our special meal but as the card says...

Happy Heart Day to all of you!

Linda
