I had fun reading blogs today, especially the ones that talked about love. Pam talked about her love for Peet's coffee. I've never had Peet's coffee, but she sure makes it sound good! I do love coffee, though. I probably shouldn't tell you this, but I drink 2 pots a day! And I can sleep at night.
Kim loves us so much she gave a tutorial on how to make an adorable Valentine quilt. She says we can save it in a file to make for next years Valentine decorations, but since my Valentine fabric is still all over my cutting table I may make one before I put things away!
Judy is having the give away that I told you about in my last post. I have to post what I got for Valentine's Day before midnight, so I better
Okay. So, here it all is in one photo underneath my Valentine tree.
I'm not a high maintenance woman. I don't want flowers because I could think of lots of fabric that I could buy for $50. I don't want diamonds because I could think of other things I would rather have. Take me to a thrift shop and I'm a happy woman! See that heart shaped wreath above my little $3 Valentine tree? I bought it at the thrift store for $3, went to Walmart and bought some silk red carnations, and I hot glued them on to the wreath. My inspiration came from Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage.
Give me a heart shaped cookie jar and a Valentine coffee cup and my heart jumps for joy. A lip shaped cookie cutter will be great for when the kids and I make lip shaped rice crispy treats when they come to my house tomorrow night for our Valentine dinner. The heart shaped cake pan will be perfect, too, for my strawberry cake that I plan to make for our dessert after dinner tomorrow night.
It just doesn't take much to make me happy.
He also took me out to dinner at TGIFridays. We went early at 4:30. Every one in my little town decided to take their special someone out to dinner early this year. I think next year we will go out for Valentine lunch! The first restaurant we went to had a 4 hour wait! No thank you!
After dinner we went to see the movie, New in Town.
Steve and I loved it. Everyone in the theater was laughing hard throughout the entire movie. It didn't get good reviews, but I don't ever look at those any way. I always look after I've seen the movie. I don't like blood and gore nor do I like movies that scare me so bad I can't sleep at night. I just want something that makes me laugh, and makes me feel good inside. This one did just that.
Okay. I still have a few minutes before I have to post this over at Judy's blog, so here's what I'm giving away.
I saw this quilt and had to have the pattern. I love the pinks and reds. The quilting is gorgeous, too!
So, if you would like to win the pattern leave me a comment.
Edit**I was in such a hurry about getting this post done before midnight that I didn't tell you when I was going to have the drawing for the pattern. Since it's sort of a Valentine's weekend, I will stop accepting comments after midnight tonight(Central), February 15 and have the drawing tomorrow morning. Good luck!
