I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse that was built in the mid 1970's, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe, who is a Retired Letter Carrier. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before I had Knee Replacement Surgery and officially Retired in 2019 after 41 years working in Direct Patient Care ... I am LOVING Retirement!!!!

Valentine Crafts Over the Years

First I want to Thank Deb over at Lavender Garden Cottage for featuring my post,
 Pink Valentines in the Dining Room, from last week's Cottage Style Party!
And Thanks to Jody and Stan over at Rooted in Thyme for also featuring the same post,
 Pink Valentines in the Dining Room, from last week's Simple and Sweet Fridays Party!
Thanks Deb and Jody & Stan!!!

Please stop by and visit and link up to these awesome parties!!

Today I am going to  share some Valentines Craft with you that I have made over the years........
I embellished this cute book box......
Here it is on my buffet in the DR......
Tag ornaments......
Embellished these heart ornaments bought at a Flea Market....
I made these ornaments......
I placed Valentine Tags inside these picture frame ornaments.....
Wreaths that I made.......
Red Roses added to a small White Tree
Boxes that I embellished.....
 A LOVE sign that I glittered up a bit.....
 More embellishments....
These I made....
 And I simply added heart paper doilies behind my Cookie magnets on the refrigerator for a bit more impact...
This was a children's bracelet bought for 25 cents on Clearance at Target one year.....
And I just had to show you a close up of this sweet Valentine Angel.......
As I mentioned in past posts, my valentine Decor will stay up until the beginning of March......

 In my last post, I shared with you all the snow that we have had lately.  If you missed it , please click HERE

This was a huge problem that I mentioned.....
All the icicles that are dripping water on the sidewalk in front of our house.

It has been in the 30's causing more dripping........

Joe is working hard trying to keep chopping the ice so no one ( mainly me) breaks their neck out there!!!
And we did get a few more inches of snow again and once again, I drove home from work on snow covered roads!!!

The icicles are gone for now because an owner of 8 townhouses ( who rents them out) in our development paid a guy to come and knock all the icicles down on his properties so Joe also paid this guy to knock ours down too!!

And no one was stabbed by falling icicles!!!

A Huge warm up next weekend is only creating fear of flooding here and more snow to come on Monday!!!  Of course, when I go back to work!!!  UGH!

Thank God I am not afraid to drive in snow.... I am afraid of the people who do not know how to drive in snow......
