Today’s post will be long on pictures, short on words, because, well, I’m short on brain power. I know, what a surprise. I hope nobody has a heart attack, falls over and dies not not surprised.
Be that as it may, I thought I would share photos of the lovely Valentine’s Day decorations my dear husband, Steven, put up. Ah, Valentine’s Day. For years it was a sad day for me. No card, no flowers, no candy, no love. Poor, pitiful me. Now I have a nice husband who decorates for the occasion. Here is our mantle.
First I zoom into the center, on Stevens juke box and our dancing skeletons. That reminds me, I need to lose some weight. And take dancing lessons.
Peewee Herman is always on our mantle. I guess the lizard is his date. The ghosts are also year-round friends, with different seasonal accessories. They do make good snowmen at Christmas.
The awesome wine glass was custom painted for me by a cast member of Leading Ladies, the play I directed at Ilion Little Theatre a couple of years ago.
The stool usually stands near our fireplace, unless we need it for human seating. The gorilla is a Valentine decoration I purchased at half price at Winn Dixie in Georgia. The occasion was Steven’s birthday, so we named him Bert the Birtday Gorilla.
Steven bought a box of Valentines to add the the festivities. I don’t know if you can tell in the pictures that he put some on the wall. He said most of the Valentines available had superheroes. I’m glad he picked Dr. Seuss.
In case I forget to say it next week, Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody.
