🌹💝 Would you believe we looked (as in Dayle looked in the attic) for my Valentine tablecloth for days and finally found it for me? What a wonderful husband! He surprised me with the roses several days ago and all they needed was the tablecloth. What he couldn't find was the bin where my 3 cute little valentine children figurines were. Bummer. Oh well!
These roses are gorgeous and are holding up well.. sometimes they droop quickly but these are standing tall and proud and are opening slowly. So pretty.
I laid out my handmade heart pins - the one on the top left is a gift from my blog friend Betsy and I think the knitted one is from Gracie and I made the 3 felt and sequin ones 20 years ago!
I spent time scrubbing the inside and shelves of my blue cabinet and my grandson Caleb helped on the lower ones and the top.
Once they were scrubbed with soap and water and dry I spread some wood "feed and wax" on the shelves. The wood drank it up and glowed! Dayle found some old windows in our barn with old wavy glass and took them and the cabinet doors to a glass shop where they cut the glass to fit and installed it, he picked them up yesterday next he'll screw the doors in place.
My new jadeite "baby". It's a Houze Ivy Ball - the base has two adorable little seals holding the ball. It originally came with a handblown light green glass ball with a small hole at the top, but most of these got separated from their "ball" and only the base is found by itself. So, I got a replacement 4" ivy ball which has etched vines and a flower. I love it.
The little seals are charming, they have little webbed feet, beady eyes and the tail is webbed, too.
I decided to take a few cuttings from my heart leafed philodendron to root in water. I'm already enjoying having it beside me and will enjoy watching the roots emerge and grow.
The little roots were already trying to grow on the vine so I know this will thrive.
