Some Valentine Ideas

Well, I cannot decide if it was bad news day or good news day yesterday. My dental appointment that I have dreaded for days was postponed due to snow. We didn't get any snow at our place, but apparently the area where my dentist lives did. So, all that anxiety will now be postponed to …

Table for Two

This year I have not been inspired by Valentine's Day.  Usually by now I have red hearts all over the place, with my two heart table toppers displayed prominently.  This year I didn't even get them out until this week, and even now they seem boring, just the same-old same-old.  But it was time for …

Stamping for Safelight

Valentines day is this week, and of course that means stamping time!  I like having a place for my creativity to go, so again this year, I decided to make little bags for Safelight like I did last year - Valentine Goodies for Safelight   I cannot imagine what this day must be like for …

Stamping February

Stamping in this Valentine month naturally centers on hearts and love, and I am so lucky to still have my sweetheart.  But, for many, Valentine's day isn't a day to celebrate, particularly those who have been betrayed by one they loved.  Perhaps, though, if I could make something small and inspirational, the day might be …

Valentine Decorating

Valentine hearts finally came out over the weekend. I haven't done anything new quilt-wise for Valentine this year, unless you want to count the red and cream Scrap Dance Waltz.  But I did put up a couple of things from years past. The pink candles came out to replace the Winter White of January. I …

Valentine Projects

I have been so involved with the mystery quilt, finishing some charity quilts, and a quilted art project I'll be sharing soon, that I haven't done anything new for Valentine's Day this year.  I did bring out the wall hangings and decorations, and I'll give you some links to where these were done last year …

Valentine Hearts Wall Hanging

I thought I'd bring this project forward from last year, since it uses the same hearts as the Hearts Around Table Topper.  When I showed it last February, there were only about a dozen people reading my blog, so most of you haven't seen it, LOL!! It is a bit bigger since I put three …

Valentine Breakfast

Since I decided to do breakfast instead of dinner for Valentine's day, the tablescape is simpler.  What better way to put a little romance on the table than with these pink depression glass dishes, a pattern called Cherry Blossom. Aren't they sweet on the pretty white placemats? There are paper heart napkins under the red …

Popovers with Black Cherry Creme

Most years the focus at Valentine's Day is on dinner, doing something special, whether going out or having a nice meal at home.  This year, we have a party to attend on February 14, so I thought I'd make a special breakfast.  I have a lot to show you, so settle in, and enjoy my …
