Home and Garden Thursday

Goodbye January. Hello February! Time seems to just fly! Dearest and I were talking about the perception of time – we get up around 6 am and do our morning rituals and enjoying conversation…before we know it, 9 am is approaching and we both have to scoot! In comparison, it takes about that amount of time to drive to my sibling’s homes – that time seems  to drag on and on…how does that work?! February is going to be a marvelous, inspirational month filled with thoughts of Valentines decor, crafts and foods. I just love it!

Here’s what I shared with you since the last party:


IMG_9975Snow day two here in Georgia. As you can tell, the sky was clear and the sun was beginning to melt the snow. I wanted to capture a few more moments of this rare event. I walked over to this historic house that I can see from my kitchen window. It is empty and may be for sale soon…it’s magnificent!

Valentine Share The Love GiveawayI am so thrilled to join these wonderful bloggers in offering this fantastic giveaway! Spread The Love! Have you had a chance to enter to win $500 to spend on Valentines! I hope you take a moment to enter!

Helleboro February Garden Chore 2014 in the southI shared with you a few chores I do in my February garden. This Helleboro is a fantastic Perennial. It begins to bloom in winter and lasts for quite a while. I highly recommend this beautiful blossom.

valentines decor, romantic cottage, wedding photo, graphic fraome, bird graphic,I joined several other bloggers in sharing Valentine decor and crafts in The Scoop Valentine Tour. I shared this easy craft The Story of Us- a memory book as well as a coffee filter rose heart-shaped wreath. (say that three times fast!)

A DELIGHTSOME LIFE Paper Roses finished 1I shared with you just how much fun it is to make these coffee filter roses and how I made my heart-shaped wreath.

  25. Hi Kathy,

    Thanks for this blog party. It’s been a while since I’ve posted and it’s really nice to reconnect with some old friends. I love the images you have today. Especially your snow images. We have been relatively snow free this winter but there is some coming down right now. Waiting for spring.
