A Sweet, Simple V-Tines Day

I've been inspired by the different buntings on blogs and decided to brighten up our eat-in area of the kitchen with some multi-colored heart bunting. So, after assembling tools

I spent several hours on the floor of the TV room happily punching away on shades of purple, pink, red, and orange paper, hot gluing, stringing and watching several episodes of "Real Simple/Real Life."

I was happy with how it turned out---whimsical, airy and cheerful.

Other Valentine's sightings in the house on this February 14th:

Hand-Made Valentine From Youngest Daughter
Piles of Hearts on Battenburg Lace
My Valentine's Card to the Man of the House
Youngest Daughter and Her Baby, Annie, looking like Valentines themselves.
Dinner Table all set for a Valentine's Day supper. The dessert looks good, but it was a big disappointment. It flat-out lied and called itself a cheesecake, but the gelatin and whipped cottage cheese added to the cream cheese made it more of a mousse than a cheesecake. (Yes, I could have looked at the ingredients before making it but why ruin the suspense!) The family was a little lukewarm about the results, but as Oldest Daughter said, "Hey, there are so few desserts that come to this table, I'll take what I can get."
