Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Hearts and a winner

Had a nice morning walk around the lake.  It was cloudy and 32 degrees with no breeze and warm enough that I didn't have to wear my outer most layer.  I walked 6.4 miles.

Happy Valentine's Day
I don't decorate for the day but after I was asked if I did I took a walk around the house and realized just how many Hearts there actually are around the house. Here are a dozen that I found.

Thank you all for participating! : )

Enjoy your day.
A smile from me to you.


  1. Really?? How sweet of you and fun for us!! Congratulations to Joyce and the rest of us. What a happy surprise.
    You have a nice collection of hearts and I enjoyed seeing them on Valentine's Day. I especially like your cookie cutters and cross stitch projects ... oh, and that pink shelf is darling. I remember when you had all of your cookie cutters hanging in your kitchen at your old house. Did you do that at this house too?
    Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

  2. Wow. How cool is that?! Thanks so much...very generous gal you are.

    I'd say that you don't need to decorate for Valentine's Day because your home is already filled with hearts and love.

  3. You are so kind! I think it's super that you have so any hearts in your home!

  4. There must be a lot of love in your house with all those hearts around.

  5. Hi There, Just stopping by to say HI.... Hope you had a great Valentine's Day. We had a great trip--but it's nice to get home. I'm trying to catch up on some blog posts...

    Lots of hearts... Bet we all have more heart shaped items around our home than we realize!!!!


  6. oh my goodness!! I got your note yesterday because I was out all day and it came across on my phone! wow, you are awesome, thank you so much!! xoxo Love ya, Pam

  7. cute. you do have hearts, about.

    congratulations to the winner!

    per usual, i don't put my name in any blog drawings, because i never did one myself.

  8. I'm so thrilled to have won your beautifully knit dish cloths - thank you. What a great collection of hearts - I think they are all lovely but if I had to pick 3 favourites I would choose - the candle holder it is so elegant. The cross stitch picture as it looks so homely and the pink cupboard because it is gorgeous.
