It's Valentines Day... How do you choose to celebrate it? I'm more or less of the 'It's a cynical marketing thing dreamed up by the greetings card companies to bridge the gap between Christmas and Mothering Sunday' school, but still...
You can go trashy (red underwear, cuddly toys) or classy (restaurant, Paris weekend), I suppose. We're going trashy. We're staying in and making hotdogs with fried onions, American mustard and ketchup, and French fries. Accompanied by cold beer. And once Joe goes to bed we'll be tucking into Mississippi mud pie and watching a few episodes of The Middle.
Valentines Day, our way.
Earlier this week we did the shop window display. Styling and displaying charity shop windows is both challenging and fun, as you really don't know what you'll find out in the back room. We unearthed cut glass perfume bottles, an old encyclopaedia (left open at 'passion'), books on Audrey Hepburn, sparkly costume jewellery...
I also made a garland to hang up.
Jay and I have an agreement: no presents, just cards and a cosy home-cooked meal. Although I did find some lovely tulips in the kitchen this morning.
I made his card on Wednesday, using an alphabet stamp set. A bit wonky but most definitely home made.
I do love these stamps. Sadly they don't have numbers in this set but you can get those separately. I may well do that.
Anyway, have a lovely evening and weekend whatever your plans may be.
