Sharing Some Valentine Fun and Love!!


I'm a day early, but have a busy day today and tomorrow and may not be able to post!

I said I would show a couple of different ways to decorate with the little heart pins I purchased from Lilly, and here they are.

I found some deep red ribbon, tied a loose knot, pinned on the heart and added a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary. What do you think? It makes me smile!

Here is the pink cream and pink heart. I just got some coordinating ribbon, looped it and pinned on the heart. It could be hung on cabinet doors, door knobs, dresser knobs...almost anywhere for that special Valentine touch!

It would like so great surrounded by more pink, but my whole house is earth tones!!

I'll probably use two of them on gift bags. I'll post those later!

Last year I started a Keepers At Home girls club. (you can learn more about them here) We have had such fun with these girls, most of whom we did not previously know.

Yesterday we had a Valentine's party here and had a blast!!

Remember these wax and crayon hearts Maddy and I made? I took them from the window and hung them on the chandy for party decor!!

I want to share a Valentine one of the girls made with her Mom for me...what a sweet token of appreciation! And a lot of work!!

The lettering is quilled paper, fine beads adorn the edges, the pink strip is woven across the top, and there are little cut-outs and pop-up hearts, AND the Bible verse Ps 17:17, A friend loves at all times, written out in gold paint pen!

Simply lovely!

I am leaving you today with some sweet quotes about LOVE...that's what this day is really all about...sharing love (and spreading joy) :o)

Love isn't blind, it just only sees what matters. ~~William Curry

Love, like a river, will cut a new path whenever it meets an obstacle.
~~Crystal Middlemos

Love is something you can't describe, like the look of a rose, the smell of rain, or the feeling of forever. ~~Kristen Kappel

If you would be loved, love and be lovable. ~~Benjamin Franklin


Have a wonderful day today, and a Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow!!

Be sure and pour out some of your special loving on those around you!!

Love and Hugs,

    I remember doing some quilling in the 1970's when I was in a University of MO Extension Club. I learned so many neat things while in the organization. We moved away and I didn't find an extension club in our new home town.

  3. Happy Valentine's Day, Bloggy Friend! I hope yours is blessed and full of LOVE!

    I love the red on heart on the towel and the chandelier decor! And wow! that valentine is awesome.
