Home and Heart.....





As some of you know Valentine's Day is pretty special here, as it is also our Wedding Anniversary - I know, I know - but we really are just a couple of old fashioned romantics.....we got engaged on Valentine's Day 1996 which was so magical and special we decided to stick with the date.....

Wedding Sampler.....

.....as on both our Engagement and Wedding we had glorious sunshine, we spent three days on Tresco when we got engaged and the sun shone everyday and then when we married (very quietly one Wednesday, having lived together for six years) the sun shone again for us.....


Anyway as I have been spring cleaning recently, looking out things for charity, things to sell and things to repair, it occured to me that we live in a home that is not only full of love but full of hearts too.....

 
Love Plaque.....

 Even the kitchen is bedecked.....

Love Shelf...


Kitchen Blessings......

The sitting room has a certain theme going on too......

 
Handmade cushion.....


 Scandinavian Home.....

Then upstairs to the boudoir...

 Happily Ever After.....


Button Heart and Handmade Bag.....


 
Yes Please.....

Even the handmade things are along the same theme.....

 Handmade bag and heart.....

As this Valentine's Day I am going to carry on my Dottie Angel challenge there will be no grand gestures, just homemade goodies - and I will give thanks for the love I have in my life, not just the fact that I am blessed with a truly wonderful husband but that I love my home, my gorgeous pussycats, family and friends....

And I wish the same for all of you, that you all have someone or something to give thanks for this Valentine's Day.....


Warmest Wishes for a Wonderful Week

May you have love, overflowing all the days of your life!
When you surround yourself with so many hearts, is it any wonder you have so much love?
I think, you have discovered the secret!

Hello !
Happy Valentine day and happy wedding anniversary too !
The weather was bad on our wedding day :-((
But a French proverb says (I tell in French and try to translate the "idea", lol) "mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux" it means "rainy wedding, happy wedding"
I think it's right ... we're happy for 22 years now ...
Beaucoup de bonheur à vous et votre mari !
