Laurie’s Valentine Party & Tablescape Thursday!

On Friday besides visiting Laurie’s Party head over to the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog where I’ve posted the recipe for this dessert that would be great for Valentine’s Day! Remember the recipe won’t be posted till Friday!

Now for some possibilities for a Valentine Day scape!




This was last years bar scape that Dear and I had our Valentine’s Day dinner at…






Another possibility without red…




Here are the two cutest Valentine’s in love that I know!! My parents who have been married for 66 years!


Hoping you have a Valentine’s Weekend filled with lots of love for all the people in your life.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. It made me smile because it doesn’t take much to set me off singing and now I’m singing Morning has broken, thanks to you. I’ve always loved that song.

  14. What a lovely post! Both of your tablescapes are beautiful, but I think I’m partial to the pink. 🙂 I’m going now to check out the recipe for that delicious looking dessert!

  15. Hi Ellen,
    I’d love to take you up on the hat offer! If you would get in contact with me via leaving a “do not publish” comment with your email address I will send you an email with my home address. What a kind thing to do both for me and the elderly spinsters. I hope you can tell me a bit more about them…I like the have a bit of background about the people who wore the hats.

    Thanks so much.

    PS: Where did you get your Home Ec degree? My BS Home Ec was from Oregon State.
