Happy Valentine's Day!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

And to share my Valentine's Day decorations.

We've had some wind and all the neighborhood leaves found their way to my front yard! Of course, now the leaves are covered in snow and ice from the storms we've had this week.

Dining room table centerpiece. Those are peanut butter cups and peanut butter kisses! Help yourself!

Some silk flower arrangements in my living room.

Leah, one my preschoolers in Sunday School, got me some chocolates and mini roses for Valentine's Day! So thoughtful.

Enjoy this day!

P.S. The Valentine's Day graphics are from here:. Jennifer has the cutest country graphic and web sets. Check it out!

Favorite Things

These are a few of my favorite things....

My Cuisinart coffee maker. It gets used every day!

My Cuisinart ice cream maker. Just got this and used it once. FAB-U-LOUS vanilla ice cream! I bought this on the recommendation of Susanne and I wasn't disappointed!

My Creative Memories albums. A lot of time, money, and materials went into these! I need to move them up to the living room near the door so if there's ever a fire, I can grab them! Right now, they're on a book shelf in my rec room.

My Dymo label maker.

And, finally, my Boyds Bears collection...and this isn't all of them. I have some packed away because I still have my snowmen collection displayed in the living room. And I didn't take a picture of the stuffed Boyds Bears going up both sides of my stairs.

Boyds clock and Boyds Christmas tree

These two shelf pictures are the same shelf. I couldn't get the whole thing in one picture.

Thanks for looking at some of my favorite things!

Good Things

Recapping this week....

1. Finding Mom's scarf she thought she lost on her way into work. It was made for her by Toni, Wendie's mother-in-law, for her retirement party. I found it in the parking garage when I took the mail out on Wed. afternoon. She asked me to go look for it and the nice person who found it had hung it over the wall across from the elevator!

2. A hot cup of coffee every morning.

3. My nephew, C, winning Best of Show at his Cub Scout's Pinewood Derby last Saturday! (Technically, this is from last week, but I didn't post about it then.)

4. Making a $100 error in my checkbook balance, in my favor! WOOHOO!

5. Lunch out with friends twice this week.

6. Small group. We started a new study on Wednesday and we're having a Super Bowl party tomorrow.

7. A relaxing dinner by myself at a new coffee shop .

8. A nap, under the covers, on an icy/rainy, cold day off from work.

9. Scrap booking with friends.

Show and Tell Friday

Hi! Happy Friday! Can you believe it's February 1st already? I can't!

We are having a cold, rainy day today. It was icy out this morning so I didn't go into work today. Neither did anyone else from the office!

Today, I am showing and telling about the shelf above my kitchen sink. My kitchen is decoated in green and sunflowers. And I love litle, dainty stuff so this shelf is perfect!

Here's the full view of it.

And a close-up of the right side.

And the left side.

And a blurry view of the little sunflower girl. I just love her! She was a bit pricey, at $9.95 a few years ago, but I couldn't pass her up!

Head over to Kelli's to see all the other Show and Tells!

Enjoy your weekend!
