T-A-D #14 Hanging Hearts (and a party ...)

Dear friends, Welcome!!

Enter through my garden gate (I finished this bigger version of the Heart that Hurts last night.)

And if you've forgotten to wear something red or pink, you can borrow one of the scarves I've draped over a chair ...

I've decorated the house with hearts and love (I am sure you will recognise some of them ...)

These were cut out from an old telephone directory, painted, and stuck on the door.
My found Love in the living room ..
I've put out the two mosaic tables (I made them years ago) especially for the occasion..

and my painting - temporarily relocated ...

This lovely rose painting was done by my friend Louise, a very gifted artist who specialises in rose portraits.

This is actually my Thing-Of-The-Day - heart mobiles positioned over the tea table.
Oh, please do have something to eat!

Cupcakes? Scones with sour cherry jam?

These apricot shortbread biscuits are delish ...

But the berry tartlets (from The Sweetest Thing in Simon's Town) are the absolute best!

Do have a glass of bubbly (or two) before you leave! That beautiful object inside is a wild hibiscus flower. Kendalee sent me a bottle of these in the fantastic sensory package she created for me. They open up in the champagne bubbles - and are edible. We finished the bottle!
It was so great to have you here and spread some love! Get back safely, sleep in tomorrow, and enjoy the rest of the lovely weekend ...

THANK YOU I had a splendid time, actually I am staying...

OMG your TABLES!!! WOW! Loads of work, that - beautiful!

Thank you again for a lovely visit but like I said, I am going to stay.

Oh my gosh, this all looks AMAZING! Must have taken you hours to put all this together. Good hours, though.

OOh I'm jealous!

Thanks for the invite! Had a lovely time. Enjoyed the decor and the best thing is those virtual berry tartlets didn't make me any fatter!

How delicious everything is, and how pretty. I love your mosaic tables. I love it all! And flowers in champagne, beautiful! I am a bit late but I see Linda Sue is still here so that's ok!

Oh how gorgeous it all looks... I'm left feeling all swirly and full of love! I wish Valentine's day came more than once a year so that we could happily wear our hearts on our sleeves and fill the air with them more of the time without feeling silly. Although these days, I don't care so much about silly... It was a fabulous party - thank you for having us!

Oh my dears, thank you all for coming to my party! It was so lovely to see you all in person, chatting, gobbling champagne and food, oh, divine! Linda Sue is staying here for the entire weekend - how fantastic! Maybe she will teach me how to felt ... what a pity she left the puppy at home though - I was looking forward to beach walks with him!

I have been so inspired by all these lovely things you are making - this post was over the top with loveliness.

Okay, I know I am totally late, but I still managed to find a crumb from one of the little tartlets over by the door in the right hand corner. Your right, it was delicious. I didn't eat the berry though because it was starting to rott.

I love your blog, it is so fantastic. I see one of my favourite girls showed up -- Linda Sue.

Love Renee
