Below a little one I made like the turquoise one:)I only persevered because Kathleen suggested I do:)
It's right around the corner..
I think my favorite years for Valentines were my primary school years..
I loved giving out Valentine's..they are so cute..
Julia Child and her husband sent some out every year..
I also loved giving my Littles cute furry friends..but last year Jacques said..:"They are getting too old for this..:("
So cards this year..sending cards..to my beaux..my Little beaux♥
We get together as a family on or about that time..because we celebrate some birthdays..
Caroline..our bébé..turns 41..I already know what I am bringing for desserts etc..
I'll have to share after the date if they turn out..
I am loving crocheting as you know and made another cozy in wool..Kathleen told me to :"Not give up":) So I unstitched the awful one and tried again..
However..that first photo..and below ..is a cozy Kathleen made for me..
I don't collect MC..but I follow fervent collectors of MC..and when I saw the first tea cozy Kathleen knit like this ..I thought..:"wait...Stop the car....I love this! It's MC..and Mary Engelbreight!"All knit up into one..
so I asked is she could knit me one aslo..♥
You may remember the Beige and pink one she made for me.
She is an expert knitter.
And such a very nice person!
She was offering some of her beautifl knit facecloths for sale..they just happened to match 3 of the soaps I brought home for myself from Provence:)
I see all the errors in mine..crochet..and how hard is red to photograph?
Just look at Susan Branch's beautiful book..Love..a gift to me that I cherish..and the vintage Valentine..also a gift..
I think I keep everything..
No not true..
I tossed all my Oolong teas.
And made donation bags....
I made some of Maries' raspberry jam bars..and cut out one in a heart for this post.
Hands down Jacques gives these 10 stars.And yes I have been making them since 2010♥
You know Marie..
She has this blog..and this blog..and this book:)♥
Who writes a book this voluminous and packed with real recipes that work?
This is not just another pretty face:)
I tried a little garland too..Oh if I had a little girl..here there and everywhere in her room. You can find the tutorial for the heart garland here~
But who knows maybe she would not like them.
I went to a store I love ..April Cornell...the girls clothes/dresses are out of this world..I mentioned that if I had a little girl..this would be the shop..and the salesclerk said..little girls and their moms are not into these these days..what a shame.
I think Britney changed the dress code years ago.
Althought I bet Amelia..Alicia Paulson's little girl would like them.
Any of you watch This Is Us?
I am happy my grandchildren are watching this show.
I am not looking forward to the Super Bowl episode..
but how I have loved this show since day one.
My husband loves it too.
The acting is top notch..the feelings take hold of us..and we can get lost in quality tv..for a while~
It's been a funny weekend..cloudy..sunny..A little off..
Still organizing here;)
Have a nice afternoon~ And beginning of week..
