Happy Valentine's Day!

In wandering around my house and yard, I found a few things suitable for a Valentine's post.
Hope you all have a lovely day.

A small crazy quilt heart I made years ago. It hangs on a huge peg rack in my front hall (which you can see here, it's got a lot more stuff on it now), along with a lot of other misc stuff like little bunches of dried flowers, vintage pot holders, old safety pins, small pieces of art made by me and friends, and many other things I can't remember at the moment. 
This is a heart shape in the broken scroll-y umbrella stand that lives on my back patio. I got it free just by asking when I saw it sitting over by the fence at the place we rent tables and chairs from for work. The guy was very puzzled why I would want a broken stand but just shook his head and tossed it in the back of my car for me. 
Another scroll heart. I love the patina on this thing. My husband also shook his head as he unloaded it for me but now likes the look of it out there leaning against the wall. Birds sometimes perch on it before they hop down to eat the seed I scatter each morning.
And because it's the only pink blooming thing in the garden right now, a pic of my gorgeous apricot tree. We have several fruit trees and this is far and away the most beautiful bloomer. Love those pinks against the weathered wood of the fence.


  1. Lovely hearts, and gorgeous blooms! Hope you're having a great day! xo

  2. Lovely - but I am so darn jealous of your apricot tree LOL

  3. You have things BLOOMING???????

    NO FAIR...all we have is ice and snow!
