Yes, I know it's early..but if you don't get out there right after get nothing!  NOTHING!
There were only two of these.  I mean..what the heck???

Daughter's and I.  (Sandy, we miss you honey!)

I've been blog hopping and there is just so much to see...lots of idea's out there...but mostly we all seem to really be enjoying that "clean" uncluttered look.  That's really is but I am already into digging around for  sweet little hearts for Valentines Day.  Yep...and headed off to Michael's to know...LOOK!   As you can see...

I did NOT come home empty handed!  No siree!!
 Isn't this just so cute??    Well, anyway, I thought so.

This cup cake decoration was ..interesting.  The base of the cupcake stand has four spaces to sit cupcakes in..and of course the bottom layer.  The glass cake stand is by Mosser Glass.  We like to  have a little Valentine luncheon for us girls. 

By now I decided it was time to get out of that store!  Quickly...but...

...a couple of little felt heart place mats...and I was  OUT OF THERE!

Every year I add some little thing.  (or two) ;
 I hope there is no hidden meaning to this passion I have for cute things for the house.  There isn' there?  :):)
THAT'S it for me.   No more buying for Valentines Day!

Done, done, done!!!
You DO believe me, don't you?


(good grief!  I'm beginning to clutter things up again!)

I have to say, I have nothing for Valentines Day. Back when the kids were young I stuck hearts in the windows and we made valentines out of paper doilies and lace. But! You are off to a good start!

Love the picture of you with your daughters. You are all pretty ladies!

I do not believe you won't get any more decorations Mona. I love seeing them, it all goes so well in your romantic nest of a home. Just enjoy it.

Well I'm sure you'll keep us posted if you do, won't you? Can you have too many hearts around the house anyway...I don't think so! Cute stuff Mona!

Mona, as we all know, you already have the biggest heart right inside yourself, but your decorations are so lovely to see. Of course, we do not believe for a minute that you are through decorating cause these still a few weeks left until Valentine's Day, so more shopping ops.

i LOVE hearts...but I have enuf for Valentine's Day, I think. I refuse to even go shopping right now. I am in the midst of purging my cabinets, hutches and closets. I have such a mess right now...boxes and sacks everywhere but....after a trip to drop it all off at the thrift store...things are gonna look mighty clean around here...I HOPE.
I actually don't decorate for Valentine's Day other than a few boxes of chocolates around. :))

Hi Mona,

And what beautiful daughters you have....of course, they take after their Mom!
Hugs friend,
