Friends, I have a small request for help. I am rather rusty on the way that Blogger works, but when I get time to come here and read your sweet comments, I wish there were a way to reply directly to you on my blog. (Kind of like Facebook, you know? If someone comments on something I post, I can at least "Like" their comment or tag them in my comment so they will easily see that I have replied.)
The way I understand it now, I can comment on my own blog posts in response to you, but there's no way to make sure you know I've commented, unless you just happen to come back here and check (which I don't for one second expect to rank high on your priority list!).
My point is, it feels wrong to let all your generous comments (or sometimes questions that you want answered) just sit here unacknowledged, when they all brighten my day so much! Just wondering if I'm missing something and there's a way to reply to you on this blog.
And since I've asked for a favor, I will share a small project to make it up to you! Just ignore the fact that this is over a month late!
Easy Valentine's Day Wreath
I'll be the first to admit I don't go all out for Valentine's Day. My little boy Henry's birthday is January 23, and just on the heels of Christmas, it about wears me out every year! By the time February hits, I'm pretty impressed with myself if I can muster some heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast and get a few little goodies to let my family know they are my special valentines.
But things do get a little drab this time of year, so I did manage to pull together a small wreath to brighten up the place! I took a wire hanger from my husband's dry cleaning stash, bent it into a rough heart shape, and then twisted some (formerly Christmas) berries around it.
Please note my 18 month old helper in the window.
It wasn't fancy and it took me all of 15 minutes but I love simple projects like that! The wreath is only about 9 inches high and would have gotten lost by itself hanging on the door, but layering it on top of my larger winter wreath works perfectly!
