Happy Valentine's!

My sentiment for the holiday - "Love isn't love till you give it away." I pray that you are blessed with love today and always!

I found this bowl in a catalog that I still get, I've stopped most - too many trees, theirs is always packed with charming tidbits of days gone by, and I love it all. Although I've yet to buy anything - it's all too nice for this house :)
These towels are pretty adorable too! I put links into both of the pictures if you are in the mood to shop :)

I've been quiet here - sorry. I've been feeling the effects of a snowy week, without much sunshine, and I'm not used to that around here. And I've felt inclined to snuggle up with a book(s) instead of quilting. Have you read the Elm Creek Quilter's Books? I've been trading books on PaperBack Swap and loving it! So far I have read the first 4 of the series and have my eye out for the rest!

Blessings to you, and the one you love ~ Amy

The retro Valentine towels are too too cute! Wouldn't be hard to make either . . . hmmm. I've been way behind for Valentine's this year. I haven't even gotten the kids' stuff wrapped yet.

I've read a few of the books but not in any order. I have A Quilters Homecoming if you're interested.

Ha! My mom takes that catalog and both of those things caught my valentine-y eye the other day when I was looking through it. Hope you had a Happy Valentine's Day!

Those tea towels are adorable. Thanks for the links. The boys love the snow but wish it would let up enought that I would feel safe letting them drive up the canyon to the resort. Today would have been fine but A is sick now. What a bummer.

Just wanted to say thanks for the staple gun tip. Oh and love the towels there from Moda Home, I design finished products for them.

Sometimes a snuggle with a good book is exactly what the doctor ordered. Relish it! :)

Hopefully by now a happy Valentines Day has been enjoyed by all. Nice how it takes so little do be a sweetheart to someone. Those towels are very cute indeed...you should make some up, show us how it's done.

I have enjoyed all of the Elm Creek Books, borrowed them from my library. A book swap is a good idea. Sure is okay to feel the need to be quiet when the weather gets to be too much, gets to me too. I droop like a flower when the sun stays away.
