‘Showing a Little Love’ Challenge. . .Day 4 & Valentine Features

Hello my friends.  I hope your week has started off grand.

Today I am keeping my challenge fairly simple.  I am still working on my letters to my children from yesterdays challenge.

Todays challenge:  Do something that you have been meaning to do (to show a little love) and keep putting it off.

I have two things that I keep putting on the back burner. 

1.  We were unable to attend a wedding of a boy that lived in our old neighborhood.  I have been meaning to get a card in the mail. 

2.  The DIL of a dear friend passed away tragically.  I have thought about my friend often but have yet to send her a sympathy card. 

Have you been putting off doing anything?

TODAY IS THE DAY!

Valentine Features:

Debbie from Inspired Honey Bee shared her sweet Love banner.  I loved the fact that she used her wedding bouquet and picture to decorate her mantle.

Here is another LOVE-ly mantle shared by Kathy from Sharing Shadymont.  I adore her picket fence planter!

Look at this beautiful Valentines tea set by Michele at The Nest at Finch Rest.

And this ever so sweet whimsical one by Bernideen.  She hosts a teatime and a home party at her blog Bernideens Teatime.  Two parties, now that’s ambitious!

I hope your week is full of sugar coated goodness and Love!

Come back later today.  I will be sharing something SEW fun!

hugs,

Jann
