DIY Ideas on Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Welcome to the party!! I hope your week is off to a great start. I am in PA this week and it was cold today. It was my sister's birthday and we went out to lunch. She had a couple of hours off work so we could go. 

I walked around my Mom's small town. There's not many stores and some are not open on Monday and Tuesday. I did hit the thrift store. I can usually find something good, but not today.  

We have some great features for you this week, I hope you check them out. Please link up your wonderful posts.

Extra Feature Week on You Are The Star

Extra Feature Week on You Are The Star

Happy Monday. I hope you had a lovely weekend. I am in PA visiting my Mom and sister. The weather is much cooler than in Florida but at least there is no snow. We are having a good visit. 

She will be 99 in April and she does so well living on her own. She told me yesterday, "I don't feel like 99". What a sweetie. I am so blessed to have her around even though I live so far away. I wish I lived closer. `

Have a great week ahead.

Valentine Centerpiece

Valentine Centerpiece

I have my winter centerpiece on the dining room table but wanted something for Valentine's Day in the kitchen. I made several different kinds of hearts. 

Some were decorated with twine, some with wooden hearts while others were plain.

I grabbed my board and added some of the hearts that I made.

I made a couple of larger hearts that I put on each end.

Then I found these LOVE pieces at the Dollar Tree and added them to the large pick hearts.

I also made some chocolate ones from some scrap material left over from another project.

These white ones were made from clay and I stamped them. 

Some ribbon, heart lights and a scarf are from the Dollar Tree.

The runner is a grain sack that I got in California. You can see that there is a string at the end of the sack. It has double fabric. It is so perfect as the runner for this Valentine centerpiece.

Happy Monday. I hope you are all staying warm and being safe. We had a very cold day on Sunday. It is finally going to get warm here in central Florida the end of this week. Of course I won't be here to enjoy it since I am heading to PA to see my Mom where it is cold.

Hopefully, one of these days, I will enjoy some warm weather. lol!!

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things Party

Happy Thursday dear friends.  I wanted to thank everyone for their wishes for Louie. He is doing well and on new food and meds. Hopefully this will keep him from getting sick again. 

I am staying busy although I wish the weather was warmer. We are having a cool winter here in central Florida. I have several projects that I would like to work on outdoors, but it is too cold. 

I know that those of you up north, probably think I am crazy since it it really cold up there, but this is cold for us. My blood has thinned too much. :)
