Valentine Drying Rack

Hello again, I hope you are enjoying your wintertime.  We have had bitter cold temps for the last couple weeks, but we are surviving here in northern Michigan!  Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I have been busy moving out all the winter decor and replacing with Valentine inspired adornment.

I hung French Coeur la Creme molds with twine on my bottle drying rack and filled the largest mold with conversation hearts to rest on top. 

On another note, there is still time (but hurry!) to enter the French monogram antique linen giveaway.  For details on how to enter *Click Here*.  

This vintage tea towel is thick and heavy, like grain sack material.  It is in wonderful vintage condition and I am guessing that it has never been used.  You won't want to miss out on it so hurry and grab those recipes!  I will be doing the drawing tomorrow morning, so you have the rest of today and tonight to enter!  

Finally, I have to say THANK YOU to Jennifer Rizzo and all the other Holiday House Walk participates for voting my 2012 Christmas tour the winner of a spot in next year's Holiday House Walk!  I am so excited and thrilled to be included!  I have some big shoes to fill next year, but I won't let you all down!  In case you are curious as to what the Holiday House Walk is, please click on the button below.  Thank you so much again, Jennifer!  

Thank you for coming back again and again!  I feel blessed to call you friends.  I will be back soon with more Valentine decor and a very special guest-post.  And of course the winner of our little giveaway!  Don't forget to grab your recipes and enter TODAY.  It's your last chance!
