Be Mine!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I received this lovely Valentine in the mail from my friend, Jill.  We were both married on February 14th.  Isn't it lovely!!  It is everything a valentine should be trimmed with buttons, lace, fabric, and a little sparkle.  Thank you Jill and Happy Anniversary!


The envelope is a work of art.   I love the stamps and the script fabric.






The pattern credit goes to Karina Hittle who had the pattern in a 2006 Jan/Feb issue of Love of Quilting magazine.


How fun is this?  My fun and thoughtful daughter ordered each of us customized chocolate bar.


Here is ingredient list for my son's.....yes, bacon.....



This is the company if you ever need custom candy.



So here I am with 3 of my 5 maids getting ready for my big day.  Dresse with red satin butt bows and matching shoes, how 1980s can you get?



Wow, were we ever young!  After 24 years, I'd marry him all over again.


xoxo to all my friends and readers on Valentines Day!

  4. I love that you included some wedding pictures. What a beautiful bride :0)
    And, what a gorgeous valentine!! It is a work of art - and a fabric envelope - I wouldn't have thought of that.
    I wouldn't have thought of real bacon in a chocolate bar either. Interesting... :0)

  9. Happy Valentine's Anniversary! The valentine is lovely. When I'm in Pittsburgh visiting my sister, we always go to a chocolate store on the "Strip," where I first saw bacon chocolate bars. So your son isn't the only one who likes that combo. There is a school of thought that says everything tastes better with bacon. I'd substitute chocolate! Have a happy, happy day.
