Felt, paper, scissors ..... glue

Happy February Blogland Neighborhood! Well, these holidays keep rolling along don't they? We still have the Christmas tree stand and a stray wreath or two sitting at the bottom of the steps waiting for somebody (anybody) to take them back up to the attic and here it is Valentine's Day / season already! ZOOM ! SWOOSH ! ... and I wonder why my hair looks like I've just come out of a wind tunnel all the time! I can't keep up with the decorating and undecorating and redecorating for the next holiday! Well, anyhow, like the rest of the country (or at least 90% of it) we had yet another winter storm last night . By this afternoon .....

Anyway, speaking of significant others and this month's holiday of Valentine's Day, the MBIAJ Holiday Decorating Dept, who so deftly managed to piddle away the majority of this snow day, finally got themselves organized and dragged out some ....

....gussy up the glass hurricane candle holders that sit on ....













......the kitchen table. Ta Da .... OK... now the MBIAJ Decorating Dept is exhausted from that monumental effort and they'll have to rest because the next holiday will be "sweeping down the plain" (as they say in "Oklahoma" ... the play, not the state ) faster than you can blink!!!

Be back soon!
Toodles,
