Happy Valentine's Day!

Don't you just love decorating for this day????

Hearts everywhere!!!

Little hints for our sweethearts,
little hints to ourselves so we don't forget our sweethearts.  

 Nothing prettier than hearts in the snow! 

 How could Dale possibly miss these?

A few little Valentine things about the house

                                               Valentine's Day is such a good excuse to decorate.

That's what I love most about this day.


...and the huge box of chocolates I hope to get  : ) 

And a Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!!!!

Happy Valentine sweet friend! I hope you get that big box of chocolates, yum!! I didn't decorate for Valentine's this year, I must not be in the mood! But if you find and send that Hunky Sugar Daddy my way I'm sure I can whip out a decor or two, LOL. I did get all the grandkids a little reminder that this Grammie loves them very much. Hugs & Chocolate Kisses!!!

Happy Valentine's Day dear, June! Your photos with that gorgeous background of white and hot pops of color make me melt. I love your beautiful home.


Rita said...

Happy Valentine's day to you too June. Dean left this morning and we both talked about everything as usual and didn't mention Valentine. He left and I started my day....10 mins later he calls and says " Happy Valentine's Day" that is his little hint....he is saying "don't forget my huge chocolate heart with peanut butter inside!" So I will be on my way out to get his Valentine. Your photos are Delicious. Borrowing one for my FB page if you don't mind and linking it to you. Ciao Rita

Happy Valentine's day to you as well. I hope you got those chocolates!

amaggie said...

In this lovely day, by some called the feast of love I want to wish you true love!
Not such a heart-shaped and covered with fragrant roses, but the real, with all its consequences, challenging and absorbing, but sometimes boring. Filling life, every day and for eternity.

Rose Garden Romantic said...

Oh June, what charming and lovely Valentine decor! Your decorating and photos look just like a magazine shoot!

Candylei said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your family too!! I hope it's been full of sweets and chocolate and roses!!!

Sharing with Sherri said...

I think Valentines day must surely be your day because you have a heart of gold dear friend... Thank you for stopping by to visit.
I'm sure your hubby loved all your sweet romantic decor, it all looks wonderful, and certainly calls for an extra huge box of chocolates!


wendy said...

I don't have very many valentines decorations, but I think I'll work on fixing that. I need to just get a bit TWIG, kinda like what you showed, spray paint it, stick it somewhere to decorate.
But the bummer for me is my house is so teeny, I have very little room for putting decorations.
I loved the hearts in the snow....really pretty.
Hope your day was a good one. We were kind of low key, but it was a nice day nonetheless.

Rebecca said...

I missed getting by yesterday and wishing you a happy day my friend. LOVE YOUR you!


Jane said...

Beautiful photos (as always)!! Happy belated Valentine's Day!

Sweet June!!! Thank you for coming tonight to see me! 39 years for you this year? It will be 30 for us in March and I too am blessed! In fact, Valentine's Day was 32 years since the day we MET!!! Time does fly, for sure when you are in LOVE! Hope you are having a great prelude into spring and I can't wait to see your spring garden!!! Enjoy! Anita

I am absolutely
certain that you received
your big box of chocolates,
since YOU are such a
sweetheart. Loved the
photos, especially the
ones with the bird cards
mixed in with the hearts.
Birdsong just seems so
right with a love theme!

Happy Saturday,
xx Suzanne
