Morning Delay is a Tuesday Treasure

A day spent at home.  Much too miserable out and although it did warm a bit the ice is there and getting bad again with the temperature dropping.  But it was a nice thing.  Have been puttering ... straightening, cooking, crocheting.
Valentine's Day is not something we normally fuss over but some of the red from Christmas fits nicely and looks pretty.  Putting the reindeer away from my centerpiece and adding my little pillow keeps it around for another month.
Just added some red votives to my dollar store plates, I did pick up some little red dishes at Pier 1 marked down from Christmas for $1.98 and some $1 tulips from Michaels and everything else is an odd and end from here and there around the house.

This morning when visiting Sara at tangled happy I fell in love with the jar cozies she showcased in her last two posts.  She finds such amazing things, you really need to visit and check her out!  So needless to say after lunch got out my cotton thread and presto ...

These are so sweet and such a beautiful soft glow.  Can't wait to see how they look as it get darker.

All things simple makes for something happy.

 May your heart be blessed
with grace and happiness.
