Oh..well, when you run out of something to post about, which I do, I just look around the room and start snapping.  Yes, yes, MORE hearts and I know you've seen some of this stuff before..but..it's all I've got right now.
I freshened up my cute little Rooster bottle by taking off his black screw on cap and taping his head securely on, and adding his heart to his bow....
then I checked to see if his little polky dot heart was beating. 
It was!
..I dug out my old Valentines..
Also got out all of my old Valentine boxes  that came with candy over they years.
This Valentine one is hard backed.  I tucked it into my other things on my hutch.
Those battered little Beatrix Potter books were my youngest daughters.  She will be 43 this August.
Her first attempt at her name...I think.. is in one of them.  A treasure.
These I found more recently but have no idea where.  They are double  with a 3-D effect.
Love 'em!
I tied polka dotty ribbons ...

to everything...
and added these old flowers from the shed..
I love hearts!
Mine beats for thee...
Can one get tired of hearts?  Not yet, not yet..

*  A very tense night on the news for everyone here.  Waiting.  Sadly another officer is dead tonight. I noticed yesterday when I drove by, that the flowers are stacking up on the corner...and a huge wreath is now there.

  8. Hi Mona,

    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  13. Valentines Day is probably one of the few holiday themes I don't do much decorating for....and St.Patrick's day..give me a break, I'm Greek! But I love yours! Hearts are so sweet and fun. Hope you have a very romantic day tomorrow!

  14. Happy Valentine's day to you Mona. I don't think you can ever have too many hearts. Your old cards are beautiful and real treasures.

  16. I have no idea how one could tire of hearts. We need one. I love them red and pink. All sizes. They bring a smile to my heart. sandie

  17. Never tire of hearts, dear Mona, so go ahead and keep em coming anytime. Our decorating consists of lots of cards verywhere and they will be opened on Valentine's Day by Grenville and myself. Glad to know that killer is no longer a threat, but sad to learn of another officer's death.
