~ Valentine's Day & A New Blog ~

I wanted to wish all my blog buds a Happy Valentine's Day!! I have a few pics from around my home to share with you but first I wanted to introduce you to a good friend of mine....her name is Karen, she lives in England, and she's just started a blog! The name of her blog is "Primitive Life In An English Cottage" and just you wait until she posts pictures of her home, it is absolutely charming! Please pop in for a visit, won't you?

Now about Valentine's Day, do you have special plans? Husband and I have gone to this certain restaurant every Valentine's Day now for about four years....it's called "Crab Louies", it's actually one of the few places around here to offer fresh fish which is what we like. It's in an olde historic house, Circa 1745....here's a pic of one of their dining rooms, taken from their web site:They do something really special for Valentine's Day....after dinner your server brings you a sample size box of "de Rochonnet" gourmet chocolates that are locally made, they're super yummy!....and all the ladies that are dining get a gorgeous long stemmed red rose!....all complimentary!....I think that is just so special. Well that is how we will be celebrating again this year. Oh and NASCAR fans everywhere are anxiously anticipating the Daytona500 which is on Sunday, woohoo!!...it's all good.

I have always loved Valentine's Day because I looooove hearts! So here are a few areas of my home that I've decorated for the occassion:
I think that about does it for now! I hope your day will be filled with things you LOVE! Happy Valentine's Day!!

You do have a wonderful collection of hearts Janet. I gave most of mine away when I thought the fad had passed, but that's because mine we no where near as prim as yours though. Yours are just perfect for all year as well as Valentine's Day. I especially love the ones made from the coverlets and blankets!!

Have a wonderful dinner tomorrow. It sounds like the perfect setting for a romantic meal!!
