sweetening the pot

Thank you all for your sweet comments.  For those of you who asked, I was contacted by Romantic Homes last fall and asked to submit a few pictures.  I wasn't sure if they would use them or feature my blog at the time but was excited just to have been asked to send the photos in.
 

It was a sweet surprise when I found out that we were a tiny part of such a beautiful issue.  My husband thought I was nuts when he heard me screech at the news. 


In honor of romance and Valentines Day, I've added a couple of heart shaped cookie cutters and some adorable cupcake liners to sweeten the pot.


That old adage is still as true as ever...the quickest way to a loved ones heart is through their tummy!



I'll be back tomorrow with some vintage additions.  Remember, all the comments from this week will be added together before I pick a winner on Sunday, so feel free to enter again.

  4. I love the look of relief hubbies get when they realize it was a good shriek instead of a bad one.

    It must have been difficult to choose which photos to send, because you have so many wonderful ones.

    It is thrilling to be part of your drawing. Oooh, the suspense of it all!

  9. patty,
    I'm off to buy the Feb. issue today.
    Oh Goodie, love the cookie cutters. This is very exciting. But I'm OK now.And the last cupcake papers I bought are not nearly as cute as yours.
    Off to the thrift store this morning, I try and go once a week and get things I don't need, but like, and sometimes love.

  36. Lovely goodies. I have just bought a heart shape cake tin to make a nice chocolate cake for my grand daughters birthday. I thought I would decorate it with shavings of chocolate and a big red ribbon,as she loves red. Then I will photograph it for my Valentine post. I would love to win,I could use those cupcake cups with the love hearts to add to the Birthday goodies. xx jeanetteann
