Like many parts of the country, we've had record cold negative temps.
On Sunday, we had a heat wave of 18 degrees and we took a stroll in the woods behind our home.
We even managed to balance the camera on a tree branch to take a family photo. Getting all four of us in the same photo, rarely happens.
March is nearly here!

Out with the year of the horse, in with the sheep, goat or ram!
Thursday marks Chinese New Year, the longest and most important holiday in the Chinese calendar. 2015 is the year of the goat, but you may see it referred to as the “Year of the Sheep or Year of the Ram” too.

I hope you all felt LOVED yesterday!

Inspired by Magpie's post last week which showed her lovely Valentine decorations, here are a few more Valentine pictures from around my house right now.My feather tree is nice and full with a few of my own creations and special treasures exchanged during past valentine swaps.
The plastic Christmas candle even got a Valentine makeover. It was inspired by a pair of cupid lights that Magpie shared on her Valentine post.
The flowerhead vase was an estate sale acquisition in January. With all her red, I decided she would be perfect for Valentines and jazzed her up with some special bling.
The red metal shelf is in my kitchen and the pom pom kitty is a gift from my dear friend, Viv. The dolls and framed snowflake were things that I had embellished last winter.
I was blessed to receive several items from Elizabeth (Creative Breathing) years ago.
This is a shot of the entire mantle area in the sunroom.
Even my Halloween owl got a Valentine makeover. He's now wearing a red satin bow.
As you can see, I've had fun creating a few vignettes with my Valentines.
Lots of Valentine fun.
I can't believe it's nearly here!XOXO

A special delivery arrived Monday, traveling all the way from a very snowy Long Island. Isn't my Valentine elf adorable?
Viv's valentine swap and was partnered with Maggie (Maggie's Lil' Fixins). These ornaments have already found a special spot on my Valentine feather tree.
Viv for hosting this fun swap!
Here's a sneak peek and a few closeups of the things that I sent to Maggie.

On Saturday, we traveled to South Haven to get our Lake MI fix and were pleasantly surprised to find out they were having their Ice Breaker festival.
It was amazing to see the Lake Michigan ice floes in the channel colliding into each other.
There's something really powerful about seeing the mighty lake in the winter.
The girls and Chris are home today with our recent recent storm. I'm getting caught up on a zillion projects at work today.
Happy February, friends!
