The Buzz on Valentines and Beyond!

Here are the hearts I mentioned that
you could plunk in the snowbank
by the mailbox to make the mail carrier smile...
Or you could plunk them in any drift near
the walkway to say a little "I LOVE YOU"
to your friends and family!
...or large!
Meaningful sayings in the home are good reminders...

 I have a thing for vintage bears, especially pandas! :)
 They call this a "cantback" cupboard.
Would easily fit in many places.
 Storage in the bottom.
 This cabinet would be a wonderful storage
addition to any room in the house!
Think: linens, bath items, cds and dvds...
or keep doors open for display!

 A new sage green sofa table
 Heart mold with candle inside is LOVELY
when the light shines through the heart!
 Wool tulips...vintage hearts
A large variety of "expressions" magnets...
 New, easy-priced jewelry. Necklace/earring sets or bracelets.

Snowfall and Flowers

As much of our country is being swept over, even lashed by winter storms, it's a bit quieter here in the North land. We only had a couple of inches. Yesterday. Of course it fell on top of about 60 inches (I think that is our local number).

I saw a man walk across the street in a little WI town yesterday, and opened a mailbox door on the front of a snowbank. The box was totally buried in snow. Mail. Delivered to a snowbank in WI. I wonder if the mailman has memorized the addresses that are surely buried on the sides of the boxes...

And what was delivered to Bittersweet Farm yesterday? Flowers! As I opened boxes today and unwrapped the promise of spring...not only flowers, but eggs, rabbits, birds & sheep! I discovered within my heart a refreshing sense of anticipation! For spring, warm weather, and brighter colors after the deep muted greens and reds of winter. As much as I love them, it is nice to pack away and "lighten" up my home!

So expect to see some flowers in the coming days, and remember we have a variety of hearts for  your Valentine's Day display...Even a few new metal heart cut-outs for plunking in the snowbank...maybe you could add one by the mailbox and give the deliverer a smile. :)
