God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

My Valentine Tree
My little Christmas tree is now a Valentine tree. I made these doily and watercolor valentines a few years ago and saved them in a heart shaped candy box. My son, John, surprised me with the candy a few years ago. I couldn't throw the box away...so I stored my paper hearts in it. I found them last week while tidying up the Christmas bins. I thought I would use them on the little tree instead of the arrangement of bare branches that I usually have. I only wish that I had left the light strings on the tree. Next year I'll know. I think that it looks sweet in our living room and gives a touch of red to our decor. Red is my favorite color...it makes me happy. A red apple, red dress, red car, a child's rosy red cheeks, red barns etc. Anything to bring more color into our lives during this time of the year. Just think how pretty a red cardinal is against the snowy landscape. What do you do to decorate for Valentine's Day?
