More Hearts

Well, I'm a day later than I hoped to be posting the rest of my Valentine decor, but I'm back now. Yesterday(Valentine's Day) was our 24th anniversary, so needed to spend the day w/Mr. Fix-It and NOT my computer! :)))

This is the candle mat I made several yrs. ago when I had my shop. I designed it to teach a class on penny rugs. Back then all I had was wool felt to work with and sold it in my shop, and I still have quite a few colors of it left. Nowadays I love the look and feel of 100% wool much better, but I only have a small amount in a few colors that I've bought in recent yrs. (Someday I hope to rectify that problem, LOL)
Once again, here's the fireplace display in the family room.....

Some of these might look familiar from last yr. These next two pillows are from Pine Mt. Designs that I stitched several yrs. ago.

This is a new one I stitched this yr. It was from a freebie design.
Here's where I hung Sheila's pillows she made me.
This hangs on the back door, but I forgot to show the skeleton key that hangs down below the sign.
My little flag out front.....
This is the big flag that hangs out front as well.

I put the floating heart candles under the cloche this yr.....
I actually made two of something for a change. One I gave away recently as a RAK gift. I kept the other for myself.

I made a little hanger for hanging them. It's adapted from a SamSarah design.

Well, I didn't finish one more project for V. Day like I wanted to, but when I do I will post a pic of it anyway. Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!

Here's your quote for today: "True friendship isn't measured by time, but by times shared."

See ya back here soon!

Oh Tanya, wishing you and DH the happiest of anniversaries! Your Valentines finishes are adorable, and I'm gonna get to that very tempting coffee cake eventually, I might add some almond extract for a little kick. Hope you have a lovely week:)

Sheila said...

Happy Anniversary to you both! Your Valentine displays are so cute. I'm ready to start decorating for Spring! We had 52 degrees here today and it was awesome! Sunshine and I had the window open too!
Bless you,

How nice to have a Valentine's anniversary, Tanya! Congratulations on 24 years!

Loved your tour of all of your heart decorations. That penny rug is especially pretty! Your stitches are so perfect and even in it--I can see why you could teach a class in it :)
