~ A Touch Of Valentines ~

I'm as bad as the stores, I'm already sprinkling touches of Valentines around.
I've taken my Dickens Village down and nearly all my moonstone pieces are out .
Hung my love banner from last year...and yup, that's our Christmas tree you see in the mirror. I know, I'm probably the last person with their tree up, but I'm still enjoying mine......
In the evening I like to have a cup of something and just sit and gaze at the the soft lights and the ornaments...it's very relaxing. But, all good things must come to an end, so today and tomorrow you know what I have to do. Have a happy day....hugs, Linda

Hi Linda, and thanks for visiting my blog. Welcome, and drop by anytime! :o)

I love Christmas trees but didn't get mine put up this year. It's still sitting in my spare room floor waiting to be stored away till next Christmas, so I need to get that done soon.

Happy Friday and weekend!

Hugs,

Diane

You are not alone Linda!! I have my tree up too, I just can't seem to take it down yet. I find it so peaceful and relaxing to look at. Glad I am not the only one, lol. I am going to work on taking my down on Sunday.
Are you doing anything special this weekend? Nothing special here for me but looking forward to relaxing on Sunday:-)

Well Linda, I still have my tree up too! One of the ornaments came crashing down from it last night so I guess that'a a hint to take it down. Love all your Valentines decorations.

I love your Valentine decorations, Linda. We had to take our tree down fairly quickly after Christmas because we used a real tree and then ran off and left it for a week. It was becoming a fire hazard... so down it came.

Hope you have a great weekend.

My tree comes down this weekend, so you're not the last...I don't have much Valentine's stuff to put up, unless I finish or frame some of my projects. We'll see.

Valentines...I have been thinking about this too! I love the fact you are adding decor now. I really want to get a bit more crafty, so I told myself I will make something for the 14th! Oh I also still have my tree up,glad i am not the only one! ha,ha I miss the lights, it just looks so bare when they come down.I am glad you like the banner, I changed it twice tonight, but finally settled on this one....

Linda,

I always wonder, when I take down the tree, who might not be with us when the tree goes up next year....

Valentine's Day is such a happy time I'm always glad to see it come around....I think all of us have a little romance hidden in our hearts....

Thank you for visiting with me...Betty

Andi said...

Linda, I love your Valentine decorations! I adore red and think I may just have to get mine out this weekend. I did manage to get the Christmas tree taken down and those decorations packed away for another year. I miss seeing the pretty lights from it though...I really enjoy that too.

Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Andi

I still have my Christmas tree up, too. It was so pretty and I put it up a few days before Christmas so I would really like to enjoy it longer.
