My Snowy Valentine

I dashed out early Wednesday morning ahead of the snowstorm and crowds, to get ready for cupid's holiday. It felt like a sweet little victory to get everything checked off my list and spend the afternoon cooking and listening to French music.
A romantic card on a pretty cotton tablecloth.


Yesterday morning I came downstairs opened the front door and this was the scene.  Over 12" and still snowing. Those little mounds just beyond the Korean Lilac are boxwoods. By the time round two rolled through, there wasn't a bit of green to be seen. Yesterday afternoon was spent shoveling-round three comes tonight or tomorrow!


I couldn't decide on one color, so I chose three! Who says you need roses to set a romantic tone?


A little something for the foyer table too.

Who doesn't LOVE an embroidered linen hand towel? 

Wondering how long the shoveling was going to take yesterday...


so we could play!

Wooden letters and glass hearts to send hugs & kisses and wish you a


 Happy Valentines Day!

    Such lovely Valentine beauties, including your Golden and the snow. Your Golden's ball is the favorite of our Golden, Henry. His bounced vigorously (and so visibly) as he played in our snowstorm of last week. (We are usually snow-deprived here.) Henry loved the snow so much that when playtime was finished and all his playmates (canine and human) had returned to their homes, he laid in it for about an hour, every once in a while taking a munch of the fluffy stuff. Enjoy it while you have it, and Happy Valentine's Day, Leslie
