Love and french towels

White Wednesday crept up and caught me by surprise again so I took a few quick photos around the house.

 I purchased this beautiful hanging heart over at Cloth and Patina a couple weeks ago
and I just love each and every detail.
It is about that time of year you know. *smile*

 Hubby told me we are going to Olive Garden for Valentines Day.
I can't wait...it is one of my very favorite places to indulge.

I cut out a few paper hearts with pinking shears, rubber stamped images on them
 and scattered them about the house.

I also made a few paper hearts and hung them on my feather tree that I have had out since Christmas.

Fell in love with these beautiful frenchy linen towels that I found at TJ Maxx while I was visiting
 my sister in Pennsylvania this past week so I picked up a couple.

LOVE in the air...:)

A little fun thing I did before I left for PA was to write a bunch of little notes and hide them
all over the house for hubby to find while I was gone. I put them in the kitchen cabinets, on the
 bathroom mirror, in the dresser drawer, wrapped around his toothbrush , in the tea canister,
on the computer etc. 

I found one last night that he didn't find! It was just too fun! I wrote things such as, "I love you",
Be safe today, I am watching you, Email your sweetie, have a great day at work today, etc. 
Just a little something to let him know that I was thinking about him while I was gone. :)

Happy White Wednesday to each and every one of you.  Please visit Kathleen over at
Faded Charm again this week for  more amazing WW posts. I feel I must put a disclaimer on
every once in awhile. I still can't make it to many of the WW posts, but I will continue to post.
 Thank you so much to those of you who visit me despite my slow computer and internet. :)

I love your tree of hearts, Sandi! It is so pretty. How cute of you to leave notes for your hubby, too. Enjoy this Valentine's season with him. :)

Your hearts are sweet - and so are you, Sandi! :) I love that you left those little love notes all over the house for your hubby. I'll bet that those meant so much to him! ♥ I purchase a bunch of silly love cards for my hubby (along with a couple of his fav Snickers bars) and pack them in his suitcase when he's out of town once a year. I even put in a card from Maizie and stamp her furry foot on the card. What we don't do for our men, huh? lol! But I must admit that last time he left me a heart outline on the bed made from a ball of white yarn. ♥♥♥!
