Valentines Day Touches

I love Valentines Day--it is a holiday about nothing but something that is wonderful...Love. Valentines day has never been strictly a romantic holiday for me but a time to celebrate love for my kids and all of  our family, friends..everybody we love! Besides that I love to decorate with pink whenever I have an excuse...and I think Valentines day is an excellant excuse!


I got this little rosebush at Walmart for $5. I treated myself because all you bloggers with your beautiful flowers are making me yearn for spring and pretty flowers. I took off the cheap little foil, wrapped the container in plastic and then cut a piece of white fabric, tied it on with tulle and I think it looks lovely! Then I took the little thing that tells about the rose and covered it with a "valentines couple" (Chantel thinks they look creepy) and decorated that up a bit .  Later I will be able to plant the rose in the garden.
Chantel and I went to Thrift City yesterday and found these adorable hanging hearts..all beaded and pretty ..for .75 cents! Love them, I think they look so pretty hanging on my wings.
I had to laugh about these little conversion hearts which now say things like "LOL" and "Got Love?" A little different than the things they said when I was a kid.:) The kids love them and I have to keep telling them, "Stop eating the decorations!"
I hope everyone is having a good week! Thanks for stopping by!

I love pink and candy hearts and I can see why Chantel finds them a tad creepy....just a little bit ;-)

Hello Sandy, I really like your table centrepiece,I might just try something similar.

I had a go with my ruffler foot yesterday. It worked much better when I tightened up the tension. Thank you for the tip. I will post the frill I made next week. It was just a practice so not sure what I will use it for yet.

OK, now I know what I am going to do with my angel wings. I left them up from Christmas, they were so pretty. I am on the hunt for hearts! Thanks for the help.

My, you have a pretty blog. Love your table and such a pretty rose bush. I know, isn't it funny about the hearts. Love your angel wings too. (Or, guess it would be cupid's wings for Valentine's day.)

Hi Sandy!

What a great way to pretty up that sweet little rose bush. Decorating the information tag was so clever and I love the vintage photo!

Those little candy hearts are making me hungry!

Your photo caught my eye at French Country Cottage Link Party! You have so inspired me to get some V-Day decor out, I love your decorated table with the burlap runner and the hearts!

I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are
all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music. See the link below for more info.
