Be My Valentine

Won't You Be My Valentine?

My Red Welsh Cupboard all dressed up for
Valentine's Day

How I love red and white!
I made this Valentines miniature quilt in 1995.
I enjoy bringing it out each February.


My sweet sister, Sherry, gave me this darling tea set many years ago.
Isn't it adorable?

Brrrr.....It's cold outside!

Happy little Play Pals straight from the heart of my darling adopted daughter, Paula
Thank you, dear. I love them!
Happy Heart Day!

Thank you for visiting me, my dearest friends and family.
I hope and pray that each one of you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Blessings and Fond Affection,
Carolynn  xoxo
"Love is patient,
 love is kind.
 It does not envy,
 it does not boast,
 it is not proud.
 It is not rude,
 it is not self-seeking,
 it is not easily angered,
 it keeps no record of wrongs.
 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth.
 It always protects,
 always trusts,
 always hopes,
 always perseveres.
Love never fails."
        I Corinthians 13:4-8

 I'm linking with all my favorite blogs and parties. I have listed them all on my sidebar. I hope you will stop by each one and say hello. I'm sure they would love to meet you!

The play pals are so sweet. I love cloth dolls. My blogfriend sent me a handmade doll she made from France, and I will treasure it always. Is that a red rose wreath? Be still, my heart.
