Styling the seasons – February

Here we are in February, my least favorite month of the year. It is endlessly grey and cold and the warmer weather seems a distant prospect. Then we have this delightful little day in the middle of the month all about love and pink and little hearts and flowers. I love how girly it is. So I’ve decided a light and airy valentines vignette on my living room bookcase would bring a smile to my face when skies are grey.  Yet again I struggled enormously with lighting my photo’s this grey month & I am still not happy with my results.

Sadly you can’t read the titles of the books. they are Love Letter of Great Men and Love Letters are Great Women. A valentines gift I bought my husband a couple of years ago, he didn’t take the hint in fact I don’t think he’s read them. Romantic gifts for men are so tricky.  This year I have decided to live by that old phrase “the way to a mans heart is through his stomach”.  I’ll be making truffles for my husband.
