How the snow can make you feel like you are living in a picture. We get lots of snow here in Mass. and it always takes my breath away. You Valentine favorite's are just beautiful.

Oh Cathy, I have fallen in love with your house! It is absolutely gorgeous and so what I would build if I were building a house. I love the stone mixed with the brick, and I love the roof lines. Okay, I know, I'm here to see your valentine decor. Your house just took my breath. Your valentine decor is so pretty, and I love that frame that looks like vintage valentines, and I assume has your beautiful children in it. That (is it bronze?) angel is gorgeous. Thank you so much for joining the party, and also thank you for such kind words about me. You are so sweet. laurie
