Cupid was on a mission, he was searching high and low, For a couple so deserving of the love he could bestow. His travels took him near and far, from sea to shining sea, Undaunted in his looking for the love that’s meant to be. I’m down here waving wildly, in hopes Cupid will see, And that when he shoots his arrow, it will find it’s way to me. If his arrow flies unto me, will it inscribe your name? Here’s hoping that it comes to you, and maybe does the same. But if it flies on by me, your love is not to be my fate. But my love gives up not easily, so patiently I’ll wait.

New Valentines Treasures coming soon. Valentines is one of my favorite holidays. I am truly a romantic at heart. This week i am featuring my new Romantic Tulle Valentines Wreath. Adorned by pretty treasures. I will be taking custom orders on the wreaths. If interested, please contact me.

Another Cookie Recipe from BeverlyJean at Shabby Chic Pink Ladybug Designs

Southern Belle Bars

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans

3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 tablespoons all purpurse flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine 1 1/4 cups flour, butter and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup pecans.
Press crust mixture evenly onto bottom of ungreased 8 or 9-inch square baking pan. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until very light golden brown on edges.
Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except pecans in small bowl, mix well. Stir in pecans. Spread evenly over hot, partially baked crust. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until filling appears set and knife inserted 1-inch from edge comes out clean. Cool completely, cut into bars.

Yummy!!!! I love this recipe, it's a mini version of "Southern Pecan Pie"...serve with a warm mug of Christmas Hot Chocolate topped with whipped cream sprinkled with nutmeg or cinnamin.....Oh! please add a Santa Candy Cane to stir the christmas Hot Chocolate and add a special peppermint flavor. Enjoy!!

Girls Night Out!

Girls Night Out!

Daddy surprised Samantha and I to a Night Out with Hannah Montana. We had the best time. Samantha is a huge fan of her and thought she went to heaven. She took the Metro Link for the first time. Just watching her face was so cute. The poor thing, we had wonderful seats. The only problem is that everyone stands and she is so short it was very hard to see. She kept getting told to not stand on the chair. She learned how to sneak it.. Billy Ray Cyrus sat right behind us. He is so handsome. I think that is wonderful that he goes with his daughter. He is there to keep her safe and out of trouble, I am sure. Well I would love to share some pics... Enjoy And to all the moms & dads, the concert is well worth the money. All the girls just loved it.

Favorite Find

Favorite Find
I recently found this beautiful picture at a flea market. I just loved it from the moment I spotted it. Looks to be old, the back has a sticker that says Catholic Supply- St.louis Missouri. So much charm.
The pictures looks to be handmade with the words ' May the Giver and Receiver meet in Heaven'. The drawing is beautiful with a angel surrounded by roses.
This is truly a unique and special find.

Drying Hydrangeas
Hydrangeas are one of my favorites. I use dried hydrangeas in vases and wreaths throughout the house. Tips on drying the flowers.
* The best type of Peegee is the standard tree from, not the bush. The Peegee is known as four seasons because of the stages of color- white to green to pink and to brown.
*They are ready to pick for drying when a burgandy tone forms on the tips and the flowers on the branch are firm to the touch.
* Look for the ones that have a define cone shape. They are appealing and hold there shape.
*Hang them upside down to dry. The green and burgandy tones stay bright for up to a year. Beyond that they turn a pretty beige color.
Dried or live hydrangeas gives a cottage home charm.
