The Chair....

Recently I purchased this chair, I love the lines and the charcoal hues....
Would you paint it white? Maybe grey? I really would love to hear some feedback....

One Love....

Today my heart belongs to you......


All that I am is because of what you gave me


the promise of love and hope, the ability to dream...

Prayers are whispers gently floating in the air


Your voice is the music that soothes me.... your touch is caressing....


Our dreams become memories collected together

I love you for who you are and what I am.......together we are bound....


Two hearts, one love....forever.

By Margaret B.

(here's my cupid using the a pattern from Brenda over at "With Thy Needle and Thread)

What did you do for your heart day?


Happy Valentine's Day........
