As you may have surmised, I love to decorate for each holiday. I have a special Valentine tablecloth.. but not a lot of decorative items.. to Amazon I go to find this pair of darling figurines. These are designed by Bethany Lowe, she makes the cutest, vintage inspired things. They arrived yesterday.. I think they're darling!
I have a little old style truck that is red so I put that on the table, surrounded it with heart lights, put the little couple by the truck, and added some of my heart pins that I have made using felt and sequins.
I am so enjoying seeing this tableaux from my easy chair and each time I walk by.
I have a similar pair of these dressed for St. Patrick's Day. They'll come out next month! :-)
Here are my 3 sequin pins I've made and on the top is a heart pin made by my blog friend Betsy!
And my blog friend Gracie sent two of these darling crocheted hearts with her Christmas card - I tied them on a pair of my barley twist candlesticks. Sweet!
My "kids" and heart pins.
I attended the Portland Women's Forum meeting yesterday and we have a little White Elephant Sale each meeting to raise money for our treasury - I always find something neat.. I got two of these little hanging lanterns for $1 each - I think they will come in handy if we have a power outage, hanging from the chandelier.
I also bought this jam for $2, can't wait to try it.
Our two youngest grandsons decided they wanted to spend one night a week with us, which we're happy about, we took them out to Chinese and sushi dinner last night. They sure love their cousin, who lives with us since before Thanksgiving.
This was my fortune.. I think they are good words to live by.
Our little dog Mocha has been with us for 2 weeks now and she's fitting in so well! She's so sweet and loving, always happy to see us, here she is on my lap next to my computer. Just where I like her to be. :-)
She made a real advance on her house training today, too. So, we're happy about that.
They are predicting snow to begin falling at 6 pm today - and to snow for several days, so this should be interesting. How's the weather at your house? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
