Valentine Touches

Are you feeling the sweetness of Valentine's Day approaching at your home?
I am!
As usual, I almost always begin any holiday themed decorating at my fireplace, and this LOVE holiday is no exception!

I made this L-O-V-E garland last year and still adore it. It was waiting like a sweet gift in a drawer of my hutch. Oh, it lifted my mood to hang it's sweet pinks and reds across the length of my fireplace!

I love to implement my favorite items among the decorations, and shakers with glitter are one of those favorites for sure!

My Bloomer girls sit amongst the handmade cupcakes and strawberries that I bought a while back. This etsy store Crocheted Little Things has similar cupcakes if you want to sweeten up your mantle too!
I, like you, love Mary Englebreit and I gussied up a little Valentine for myself with some pretty glitter to create this...

Isn't she pretty?
My pink milk glass is always in play, whether it's Christmas or Valentine's, pink works any day!

And here's a beau playing sweet with his heart to win his gal's heart, and again it's so much prettier with

Would you like to create a pretty Valentine's craft too?

Love and Hugs, and Kisses too on this Wednesday, friends!

    There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
    I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
    Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
    It's all about how to choose a proper companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

    You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
