Hugs and Kisses and A Sweet Award

I'm really looking forward to Valentine's Day. I've been gathering all my treats and creating treasures for my swap partner...and guess what, I got my exchange gift in the mail Friday. I love everything and can hardly wait to share it with you later this week.
Have you started decorating yet? I've put a few things out and I couldn't resist buying some of the candies and now is the perfect time to share this beautiful moonstone covered candy dish. It's a Christmas gift from my good friend and I just love it.
Covered candy dishes are so hard too find and this is a gift I will always treasure.
I think it looks so pretty with the kisses and hugs too....... already for Valentine's Day.
Thank you dear Priscilla for this sweet award. It is such a honor to receive and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have met so many wonderful, amazing blogger's who inspire me daily and I'm passing this award to each of you.

Hugs and Kisses~~~Linda

Good Evening Linda,
"THANKS" for stopping by. As always, I enjoy your visits. I love your Candy Dish. The Candy and little hearts look perfect in there. I don't decorate for Valentines. I have alot of things that have hearts already in it, so, I figure that is good enough. LOL. "CONGRATULATION'S" on your Award. You truly deserve it. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Your decorations are just lovely. I don't decorate for Valentines Day but I do buy some pretty fresh flowers and have crystal bowls sitting around with the pretty candies. I would love to have a pretty banner to hang across one of my windows but I don't have one...yet.
I love your award!

Pretty candy dish! Lucky you!

Yes, I have started doing a few Valentine Day decorations, but probably won't start showing them on my blog until Feb 1st. I'm still using the National Hot Tea Month theme, plus the Show and Tell on Fridays.

I'll bring out my Valentine's Day decorations on Feb. 1st.
