“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.

Sorry I've been away..January flew by.
Guess what? I moved!!!
I spent the whole month packing and moving my gigantic load of treasures, art supplies and clothes.
Gotta tell you, we have a lot of stuff.
Helena has no less than a gazillion dolls😀

I was in an apartment, now I'm in a house and I love it!
There's room for us to move around and! we have a yard!!!
 Something I have always wanted in my home is a tree. 
 It's never been possible because we have cats and
I'm afraid they will nibble on it
and either become ill, or ruin/kill the the tree.
 There wasn't any room before either...
I recently received this gorgeous 6' Ficus and it fits perfectly in the living room.
Isn't it pretty?!
Since it's artificial I don't have to worry about the cats eating it and it's never going to wilt.
It arrived in a long box and it only took a few minutes to fluff out and arrange the leaves & branches.
I took several photos to show the colors with the flash and without.
I think the variegated leaves look very realistic. 
Do you have artificial plants in your house?

This site has many different varieties of artificial plants and flowers to choose from.
I think a hanging basket of azaleas by the front door would be nice..

Anyhow, I have missed visiting everyone and really hope you are all doing great.
I'm still unpacking but it's getting there.
Can't wait to get back to crafting..I'll be by to visit soon.
