Happy Valentine's Day to all my Bloggy Friends!  :D

Please forgive me if I haven't visited you yet today.  The *sun* is shining!  *squee* I've been outside most of the day!

I decorated more for Mardi Gras this year than Valentine's Day, but we do have this topiary in the foyer.

Check this out.  See the runner?  Do you recognize it?

What about you see it?

The placemats button together to form a runner!  ;P

*and* I bought them at the grocery store!  ;P

The vases are old (from Pier1) and the Valentine vase filler was bought on sale last week at 
Pier 1.

Just thought I'd share!

I hope you're having a great day with your friends and family!

...and the greatest of these is *love*

Until next time...

Ricki Jill

  3. Happy Valentine's Day, Ricki Jill. Your red hearts are lovely. It was so good to hear that you celebrate Mardi Gras too. Isn't it the funnest holiday? I wish I could go outside like you today - I have the worse flu bug fun.
