Happy Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day is really a holiday that I don't care for. And I only feel slightly guilty for feeling that way. It's just not my thing, I guess. The boxed character cards from the store for two bucks work just fine for the kids school parties & I honestly feel proud of myself for not spending more money or time. I admire other mothers that go to great lengths to make clever, unique, handmade cards with their kids. Like I said, it's just not my thing. I suppose my thing is laziness. :) Or perhaps it's I'm too busy with other stuff-ness. Oh well!
Something I do care for though is garlands. Why on earth do I love garlands so much? Who really knows. I made these small tissue paper pom poms (using this tutorial from zakka life) while watching Thursday night TV on NBC. We are so happy that Parks & Rec is back on, but that new show, Perfect Couples is terrible. Am I right? Anyway, the pom poms seemed to go pretty quick & before I knew it I had a nice little pile of them. They'd be great for party or wedding decorations. :)
And the newest additions to my vintage linens stash. Most of these were found by my sister that lives in Southern Utah. Pillowcases for 10 cents & 25 cents. Wish we had those prices here!
I hope your Valentine's Day is full of love & happiness. We are having take out for dinner tonight, which has been our tradition for the last few years. Hooray for a simple night at home. :)
