Some Valentine red....

Since tomorrow is Valentine's Day...I thought I'd show you a bit more Valentine love in my house...I'm not really a "red" person...blue is more my style...but in honor of the month of love...I thought I should have some...I wove this blanket last year...I think it's a perfect blanket for this time of year...comfy and warm...and full of love!!
 A few heart peanut butter cups in a heart bowl...I'm just surprised there's still some left!
 I always change the pillow covers on my couches...they are easy to make and its fun to have a different look...the red and white one I actually made for Christmas...but it works for February too...
 And what's more fun than a set of polka dot stacking bowls...not much!!
Except maybe a canister of white chocolate peppermint M&M's....
Don and I will be leaving bright and early tomorrow to spend the day in San Diego with the kids...a love fest with the boys and girls!! Wow...that sounded weird...but I can't think of where I'd rather be on  any day than with my husband and our boys and girls. 
Since today is Ash Wednesday...I thought I'd ask you to include in your prayers the people who have lost their lives the past week or so due to the mad man who has been on the loose in our area...there is a funeral today for the Riverside policeman who was ambushed while on patrol ...and another sheriff was killed yesterday...from the end of my block I can see Loma Linda hospital in the distance...it was a sad day there yesterday...yet another sheriff is recovering there as I write this...all of these men sacrificed so that we could be safe...we think it is over now...but one can't be certain until the authorities confirm everything...we have friends who have a vacation cabin just yards away from where the last gun battle took place...I will have a hard time visiting that area again....as will others I'm sure...many will need our help and prayers to get through this tough time.
Until next time...spread your love around...be safe...and enjoy the day!!!

I love your woven blanket! So pretty and perfect for this time of year.

Definitely keeping the families of the victims in my thoughts and prayers. Such a horrible tragedy.

Hope you have fun in San Diego and enjoy the time with your family :)

The blanket is beautiful. That situation is a tragedy.

Love the woven blanket! And yes, I know how feel about being with your kiddos! The best....always!!!
The situation with that mad man has us all so upset. I watched the whole thing unfold on the news yesterday. So heartbreaking. And today, I watched the funeral for Michael Cain. And there are more who have lost their lives so senselessly. So sad!

Oh, how sad. :( I didn't know you were so close to that area. My husband and I were following the news reports on that, and the Delaware shooting where a FIL went to a custody hearing his son & the son's exwife were having, and the FIL killed the exwife, her friend that was there for moral support, and wounded others. It's a mad, crazy world. :(

Beautiful photos of your touches of red! I want to go more red but my house is pretty blue, which is fine--I love it, too! I hope you had a good Valentine's Day.
