Flowers on the Porch and French Market Baskets...


Hi Friends ~ I hope you're enjoying the week and had a nice Valentine's Day. 

Valentines Day is always a happy morning for me, decorating the breakfast table and putting out little surprises for our three sons to remind them how much they are loved. This year though, had a slightly different feel as the boys literally hobbled down to the table. Two boys have (small) broken bones - one has to wear a big boot on his foot, and the other has a splint. The third son was on day three of a fever. 

Mama said there'd be days like this...

Since two of our boys are now in middle school, we only had one batch of Valentines to work on, and one class party. Our second-grader's teacher goes all out for class parties, making them so special and memorable. 

You can't help but leave the party with a smile... 

It was also my day to teach art docent to the second-graders. We made big collage hearts, and put them up in the hallway. It was a sweet time with the young artists, who all seemed proud of their work. 

We finished the day with some heart-shaped pizzas, still limping and feverish, but feeling the love. 

And ready for bed.


I'm sharing a couple of photos of our front porch. It's nice to have a little bit of life back on the porch... just a few flowers and plants until it warms up. If rushing spring is wrong, then I don't want to be right. ;) You too?!


Speaking of spring, a friend and I were recently talking about market baskets. I thought I'd re-share this post with some beautiful and affordable market baskets that are available online. Just in case you're in the market for one...


Thank you for stopping by today.

How was your Valentine's Day? Are you staying healthy? Are you ready for spring? Let me know in the comments below... I love hearing from you!

I'm working on a post that I can't wait to share with you...

Be back soon!
