Oh good! Another excuse for pretty! Valentines Day!
I have to tell you that February 14th pretty much comes and goes around here. A few roses are nice, and perhaps a special dinner, but it's celebrated with no where near the intensity of grade school days!
Are there still valentines in school? Or did they go the way of art and physical education?
Perhaps it's best. Let them all be spared the valentine box envy. Both from the handmade beauties that other girls used to concoct out of frothy trim and ribbon that I somehow never got a chance to get a hold of, or the candy boxes that were always fancier than the ones I ever (ever) had. *smile*
I also coveted (and still do) those pretty frosted heart shaped sugar cookies like the ones that Bella of Bella's Rose Cottage makes (here). Or maybe that you make too! (Thank goodness for the fancy bakery!!)
I still love hunting for cute cards to share, and pretty papers, and stamps, and labels and such. Maybe this is where my paper addiction all started!
. . . Yes, kids are much better off with whatever it is they do these days. . . .
These stickers cover the price label that for some reason is on the side rather than the bottom of my candle jars.
I'm gearing up for more pretty!
How about you?
Have a sweet week ahead!
