A few favorite random VALENTINE photos.....

Hello, Everyone... 
I am still in the SINK HOLE of blogging... 
A LOT of my dishes are packed away...
Some of my furniture has been moved...
We are about to install 4 more storm windows....
WHEW... 
 SOOO,
wanting to join in with all the pretty VALENTINE posts,
I brought back a few of my favorite 
RANDOM VALENTINE PHOTOS...
 
This is the sweet VALENTINE BANNER my blogging bud, KATHY, sent me.
It is, by far, one of my very favorite pieces.
Can you see why I love it...?
It looks amazing on my white vintage mantel.

THESE are store-bought (gasp)
CREAM CHEESE WONTONS
and they are worth about a million bucks each.
THEY ARE GOOD.
Add a Sweet and Sour dipping sauce and you are OVER THE MOON.
I am pretty sure I can eat a whole, entire package of them
BY.  MY.  SELF.

I just wanted to tell you about them in case you need something DELICIOUS
for a Valentine Tea....
 
CANDY just GOES with a VALENTINE post....:))
Candy hearts are wonderful...
CHOCOLATE, however, is MAGNIFICENT....!!!!








....and just ANY muffin or cupcake
RISES TO THE OCCASION
when they are baked in bright, cute
CUPCAKE PAPERS....


How much more ROMANTIC
can you get......?

Pink, red, tulips, candles, crystal, pearls ...

and big, ole
xoxo's


      
And, of all the flowers, candles, candies.....
FRIENDS are the BEST.

Wishing all of you a wonderful 
PINK, RED and WHITE kind of day.....

You can recycle your photos any time, BJ. They are all so pretty and I love seeing them. I am hoping that the cleaning, painting, getting ready for moving is all going super well. You're going to be in your glory soon when you can get nesting again in earnest.

BJ, do not know how you do it. Trying to move, still doing a lot of cooking and posting. Take a minute to relax. Moving is the hardest work ever. I will never do it again until they haul me off. Take care.

Great banner and mantel. Delicious candy.
Just checked your new home. I am sure David and his family will be delighted to have you so near. As will Stacy's family.
The house is lovely.
We moved my in-laws to a house right behind us almost 10 years ago. (although they are far older than you...he'll be 95 in April)

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh you dear heart! I am so glad you like the banner! It sure looks sweet on that mantel, think it will go with the new place?
Don't wear yourself out, sometimes you just have to let things go for a while. Moving is such a huge job...we'll all still be here if you take a little time off. Honest

I was just thinking about making a Valentine banner for my mantel:) I just may copy-cat this one! Have a blessed evening dear BJ, BIG HUGS!

Jacqueline said...

I am in the sink hole too and I don't even have your reasons! Those wontons would be soooo fabulous! What's not to love for the day of love?!!

The French Hutch said...

This post is way to sweet to not share again. I too love the sweet red valentine swag on the white mantle. Candy is expected!
I'm sure you don't mind the window work. Just think of how cozy your knew home will be when you finish. All new and perfect! Congratulations again on you new home................

Hello bj. hang in there. I hope your move will be finished soon.

I Love the valentines and of course the goodies to eat. I still have lots of the darling cupcake papers you sent me. This morning I was looking in my desk and found the valentines cards. Now all I have to do is make some muffins and play cards while they are baking. Smile. Then of course keep the awesome towel on my oven door to remind me of your special blog friendship.
Love you bunches...don't work too hard moving.

Maria Elena said...

What a beautiful post! Love your banner! And those wontons! WOW! I think I could eat the whole package by myself also! :) Enjoy the rest of your week!

Fondly,
Pat

I still love the cupcake cups in the glass jar. I copied that one last year! I'm so ready to put away winter and bring out spring...but, it isn't near time to do that yet, not here!

Julie said...

Oh how adorable. I love Valentine's Day .. but this year I was so late getting my Spring stuff down = I skipped the hearts and went straight for the bunnies!

I did an updated post tonight on my husband. I have been working so much I have not posted much lately..except on the riding aside blog.
