♥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 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.
