Hey Valentine


Happy Valentine's Week! We are still enduring unusually cold weather but the red hearts of Valentine's Day help bring some warmth to the season.



The image below is from a sweet book called "The Valentine Cat", written by Clyde Robert Bulla and illustrated by Leonard Weisgard.  It lasted in my shop a week before it sold. If you look closely, the back kitten has a white heart shaped spot on his head. Such a cute book! I hope it makes the new owner very happy.








sweetoothgirl:“ Hot Chocolate with Marshmallow Hearts”


This time of year I drink hot tea most of the time to warm up. Every now and then though, nothing hits the spot like hot chocolate. Brings back memories of my Mom having it ready for us kids when we came in from playing in the snow!


Here's my own Valentine cat, Guy, enjoying the snow on a slightly warmer winter day! 
Stay safe and warm out there!

Enjoy your week friends, hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
💕💕 Diane 💕💕

    1. Thanks Debra, the hot chocolate photo is from a cooking blog on Tumblr. She always posts great stuff! Guy Noir is really getting tired of being cooped up in the house all day! I try to take him out a couple times a day even if it's only for a few minutes.

  3. Happy Valentine's week to you! I love seeing photos of Guy Noir. I remember when he was just a tiny little thing. The years go by so quickly. And that photo of the hot chocolate is amazing!

    1. Thank you Stacy! Hope you had a great day too! I read on the Etsy forums from Etsy Admin. that they had been doing updates and making changes and it was a technical glitch that only effected a few sellers. It is a big deal for some of them and I hope it's been fixed by now. Luckily nothing amiss in my shop.
