Countdown to Valentine's Day

All around our home in February, you will find little hearts. The majority of the hearts are gifts from Mr. Mountain Breaths. He is romantic and surprises me with hearts. I think he enjoys my reaction, and my heart collection is growing. 

A new addition this year is the litttle antique cookie cutter and  poker chips. He's pretty sneaky when we go antiquing. When he finds things in the huge antique store, he sneaks away and has the cashier wrap them. When we checkout, I never ask what he's buying since they are already wrapped ;o) He thinks I haven't caught on either.

Here in blogland, there is a Valentine Party being held over at Laurie's place on Friday. Hope to see you there! There will be LOTS of hearts. 

I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays, and Mary at Little Red House for Monday Mosaic. Wishing everyone a good week ahead!
