Valentine's Day

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day yesterday.
My Husband and I still like to celebrate the day, even after all these years.  We still give cards
and I received these red roses from my Husband.
I kept the decorations simple this year with just a twigs and hearts table centre.
I made these hearts last year and the plan is for the polyanthus and twigs to remain on the table for Easter with the baskets and eggs that I crocheted last year to replace the hearts.

In the afternoon I was busy in the kitchen as I always like to make something sweet for my Husband for Valentine's Day.  This time I tried to make cake pop devils.  I'm not too sure of the result!
I also made some gingerbread "chocolate" boxes.  One for Hubby and one for Jay, I couldn't leave him out could I?!  :)
I filled the boxes with love heart sweets and topped them with some leftover candy from the cake pops, red heart sprinkles and gold glitter.  I was a bit rushed trying to finish them and hide them before the boys came home!
They loved them though and Hubby insisted on a photo (he wants it on his FB page).

We finished off the day with a candlelight swim at the gym.  We're still romantics even at this age! :)
I was also lucky to receive this gorgeous bag as part of a Valentine swap.  It was put straight to use yesterday morning on a trip into town to the library.
 And also on the theme of gifts:-
Here is the item that I made for Kezia as part of my blogiversary giveaway, to go with the beaded bracelets.
 A beaded bag, knitted in red which is Kezia's favourite colour.
