Valentine's Day is almost here!

Heidi over on Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly ( had a St. Valentine's Day Swap. I got a wonderful Valentine's Box from Marti my giftgiver!! In the box of many goodies was a Love banner. I have taken a few pictures (see below) of this beautiful creation of hers. I just love it and have hung it from my fireplace mantel! The pink glittery letters add just enough sparkle in my living room. I love Victorian things and Marti was so thoughtful when she made this banner to include all Victorian items behind and on the letters. Thanks Marti!! She also sent me a red mug with a box of my favorite tea (Celestial Seasonings Madacasgar Vanilla Red), a wonderful Valentine Tree. You take tree branches and make a tree and she included lovely red hearts made of paper to hang on the tree, glittery gold snowflakes and little white angels with glittery wings! Can't wait to make it and put it on the little cupboard in my eating area of the kitchen! These swaps are so fun and I also thank Heidi for having them!

I really like that. It is bright and has kind of a vintage look.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
