Valentine's Came Early...

Got a surprise when Will came home from his Costco job today...beautiful roses and tulips!!!
He very expertly arranged them in several vases, so now the house and my computer desk look so cheerful!! I have a feeling Frank had something to do with all this although I'm not suppose to know...we celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary next week February 7 and I'll be travelling to Seaside, CA, where he's currently working so that we can celebrate along with Kara's 21st birthday!!
I love love love tulips!!! Tulips have their "dance" as the stems are still growing...
I also finished a project in anticipation of one of the teachers retiring...she likes to golf, so I thought these easy golf club covers would make her happy...
I think they turned out so cute!! I was going to make them all gray with pink stripes, but decided to do one in pink with gray stripes...the number of stripes help indicate the type of club, from what I was told.
And I love my pom pom maker!! So fun!!!
So we're getting a break from the rain, but have a quiet day today to decide what my next project will be...I think it will be a hat!!

Those flowers are the perfect antidote to all the rain you've had! I love Costco flowers - even did my dd's wedding with them. :D

When the time comes, Von, I'll certainly do almost everything through Costco when I need to give a wedding!

I stuck my foot in my mouth, you obviously ARE an artist!!!!! I didn't see signs that you sell your work??? That is what I meant, you don't appear to be a vendor. Your pictures look like they came straight out of BHG, but much more comfortable and much more loving! But, if you want to get involved in this International giveaway, come onboard! I am meeting artists from all over the world!
OMG and the Talent! Astonishing!!!!
