    When I look at all you create, it blows me away. I can think of all kinds of ways you could use your talent and people would pay! Need a business manager? (:

    I agree with lulu. You continue to amaze! People would pay.

    I looked for the chocolate hearts from World Market several weeks ago and they had not put out valentine things. I was shocked because everyone else put it out at New Year’s. I need to check again.

    Love all these beautiful posts.

    This was a DELICIOUS trip down memory lane, Mary!!!
    I remember that Gorgeous tablesetting from long ago…I just stared at it for a long, long time, drinking it all in. Beautifully done!
    Thank you for the review…just as pretty as the first time I saw them.

    Oh goodness I need some chocolate after this scrumptious post. I was in line at a local bakery yesterday and the power went out. The minute I made it to the cash register the battery on the register died-maybe that was a message.

    I think Valentines Day is your favorite holiday, you really go extra all out with Valentine goodies!! My head is spinning with hearts and chocolate! I thought of you yesterday when I was in Fresh Market and saw a whole display of Valentine Peeps! I don’t think I have the patience for those adorable puppy pops, but I might try those pie crust hearts, yum!

  17. January 18, 2014 at 10:09 pm

    Mary, your creativity and talent never ceases to amaze me. So much inspiration here so I’m pinning away!
