An early Valentine and some Purple mania

Wow,  what a year so far.
No,  there is nothing exciting happening..
I've just been busy consumed with other things going on.

Some good..  some bad.
but nothing that a little time can't fix.

How crazy is this?
I've still got my December header up and I am about to show you guys some Valentine decorations.
I REALLLY needed some color around this house.
...and a sure way for me to get rid of the winter blues,
is to hang out on the Sun porch.
It is mismatched and full of house hand-me-downs
and I love it.
It is happy.

You can't get much happier that pinks and reds.

There is such a hodgepodge of pillows on the day bed.
Everything gets thrown here.

See this adorable Boston Terrier pillow?
Sally made it for me for Christmas.
Super cute!!

The craft side of the room is all cleaned and organized.
Now.. I just need to create something.

The welcoming committee is this sweet duck who happens to be sporting some Baltimore Raven's Purple and Black.

This was a gift from a man that works with Paul.  The man, who has since passed away,  made it for me after my mom died.   It was very touching!

Speaking of Black and Purple,
Yesterday, The boys had a good time watching Baltimore battle Houston in the Playoff game.
I had fun just listening to their football smack talk.
This town is going crazy with thier Raven's mania.
I am going to try to take the camera out this week and show off some of this purple pride.

Since the Raven's won,  Paul didn't mind to much that I put my pretty purple headband on Sharky.
hmmm..  just got an idea,  I think that I might paint all of the dogs nails purple this week!  : )

Today,  I've been a little busy getting the house rearranged.

Finally,  I think I've got it the way I want it.  sheeesh.

I will be back later this week with some more Valentines fun.

Have a wonderful week everyone!!
