“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Happy Valentine's Day..

Helena and I tried to create a few little goodies..
I'm about 95 % unpacked and the last five percent is pretty much craft stuff..
I have to arrange and rearrange my art supplies..
kind of like a dog that is turning in circles
until it finds just the right position to lie down in, haha!
Helena made a couple of coloring book pages.


& this wooden heart to hang on the wall in my favorite color..sunset.

I made this sweet little conversation heart devil.

This next one, isn't brand new, but I think she goes well with today's theme.
'Let's all be unicorns' is felted and stands on a jar of "candy".

I made some coconut flour biscuits to have with our Valentine's Day Spaghetti dinner tonight.
They are super simple!
You need 1/2 cup of coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup of butter
4 large eggs
mix it all together
drop by quarter cup onto a greased pan
bake for 20 minutes.
you can add sweetener or salt, depending on your preference.
I added a sprinkle of salt and about a half table spoon of garlic powder to these.
When they come out of the oven you can top them with shredded cheese.

The other night I wanted cookies, so I made them with two packets of stevia powder and a pinch of dark chocolate chips.
 Well, I think I'm about ready for bed..
We have a tradition of watching the film
Pontypool on Valentine's day,
plus it's Spanky's birthday..it's been a year that Helena got him!
So we are baking a cake and he's getting a new toy:)

I will stop by to visit you later tonight.
Have a beautiful night.

  1. Love the teeth shot and that last photo,hope you both had a good celebration. Those biscuits sound nice, i haven't eaten today. Wish i had the coconut flour and i would have them for breakfast.I shall get some to try.

  2. Happy Valentine's Day! I got a kick out of the dog turning in circles likeness to someone arranging their belongings :) Your seasonal art looks like it was fun to create. Treasures :) I've never seen Pontypool, but I googled it and it looks like something I'd like. Thx!

  3. Happy Valentine's Day. What a magical post. I really enjoyed the beauty of it all. I loved the crafts, the recipes, and Spanky's birthday, too. Hope your Valentine's Day is the best yet, especially in your new castle.

  4. My, my, you've been busy. Loved seeing Helena's coloring book pages. My favorite is the kitty cat, of course. I love your Conversation Heart Devil what a cutie.Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Birthday to Spanky. Have a slice of cake for me.

  5. Such a fun and whimsical post. I saw the little unicorn monster on Instagram, and I loved him. He made me giggle! Happy Belated Valentine's Day, Marfi!

  6. Beautiful post Marfi! I hope you and Helena had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Glad you've almost got all the packing finished! I love all the creations you and Helena made! Beautiful! Those coconut biscuits look so good! Happy Birthday Spanky! Big Hugs!

  7. Lovely craft, Helen made beautiful pictures!!

  8. Hi Marfi. Did Heleyna draw the first one all herself?

  9. Firstly, congratulations on your move! I bet it's wonderful being in a house with a yard. FOUR YEARS LATER and I still can't find all my crafting stuff, plus I've never gotten a proper sewing spot set up yet either. I'm sure you'll be much better organized than me. :)

    I love Spanky's new teeth and all the beautiful creations you made for Valentine's! 🖤

  10. Love the coloring pages and heart! I love your stuff too, of course :) Happy late birthday to Sparky!
