Hello! Thanks for dropping by. I have an interesting condition - it's where you start seeing colors before a certain holiday and are drawn to them. I'm sure there is no name for this. Do you have it? I'm not an orange person all year.. UNTIL right before Halloween I start being drawn to anything orange. For Easter pastel colors make me happy. And right before Valentines Day I absolutely am seeing RED. :-) So this morning I rifled through my tablecloth
obsession collection to find my heart-y cloth. Then I added two more red candles that I made and looked in my "pin treasure chest" for my Valentine pins. This is one I made last year. Sparkly enough?
How many of you have a Valentine tablecloth? LOL!
My hearts. On the left is a crocheted heart that I made.. hmmm.. year before last? I need to make some more! The three felt, sequin and beaded hearts I have made.. the two on the outside I made a LONG time ago.. maybe even 18 years. The three pins on the bottom right were gifts from blog friends. They mean a lot to me. I will be wearing these starting February 1st. And my heart earrings and necklace. And I'll be wearing my raspberry pink, purple and red mock turtleneck shirts. Do you wear special things for this holiday?
I forgot how time intensive making these were. :-)
I definitely think I need to make some friends for this heart.
This beauty was made by my blog friend Betsy - isn't it neat? I know I've mentioned just how glad I am that I started blogging - 4 1/2 years ago - I've made so many new friends via this medium. And to me, friendship is the icing on the cake that we call life.
This pin is a knitted heart also made by my friend Betsy.
I had to show you the new soup spoons that Dayle and I found on eBay - they go with our set of silverware. Dayle has always wanted soup spoons for some reason and now we have some. Now we need to make some SOUP! I'm thinking a nice beef stew is in our future. And homemade rolls?
