{love fools}




Last year we were crafting, cookie making fools as seen here, well this year for some reason the craft & cookies have been taken out of the equation...which leaves us with just fools and in order to avoid being a complete fool I think I better hop on down to William Sonoma (thanks Angela) and get the below cookie cutters. {image via Creature Comforts}



If I were to consider a craft I still like doilies but this year white seems to fit the bill. This lighted garland would be SO easy to do. If one wanted to take their craft even farther go check out my friend Kellie, who just whipped up some pillows..there is step by step instructions involved.





I sent Valentines cards from this Etsy shop last year, they don't have any this year but still make some fun whimsical cards worth exploring. This year if I were to send cards (which I am not) it would be this letter press that says I love you plain & simple or of course these cards from here.




Well it's the weekend, plain and simple.

P.S. - I am still obsessing over this house {the below photos via Cote De Texas} The daughter's room makes me think of Valentines Day so it is only appropriate that it is included in the post.






P.P.S. - I almost forgot to include this great Valentine's craft download found here. Below image via A Field Journal.

Don't you just love Sally Wheat's house?! I'm a little obsessed with her other one too! Or maybe she just decorated it.

Oh my goodness, I want it all! I love V-day crafts, they are all so great. I actually started poking around at your links on your right sidebar to find other sites with good V-day crafts. I found some great ones and stayed up way to late last night working on some for an upcoming mutual.

Those chocolate mustaches on Big M and little C are so hysterical! I WUV them.
