More Valentine Romance and Sweet Stuff

I have so many good romantic photos that MUST be shared thru this 
so I am posting every day.


 I didn't mean to start a collection of adorable measuring spoons....
it just seemed to happen...

I love them so much and I'm so glad I have a small collection started.

Friends and family have given me the ones I have and they are all
WAAAY  to cute to put in a drawer so I have them hanging on
this pretty tile back splash in my kitchen.
They really add the SPARKLE to my kitchen that I love in my rooms.

and Valentine's Day wouldn't be the same if I didn't make
a small plate of
(the yellow showing on the bottom of the bowl 
is a little bit butter....and a little bit Pam)

 I just KNOW the sweet souls in Heaven eat this candy..
just maybe EVERYday.....

I can't even remember when I started my love affair with this candy...
I know my mama made it all the time I was little...
then, girlfriends and I made it all thru school...right up thru high school.

Then, I made it for my kids and grands....
and for Mr. Sweet and myself....

 ...icy cold milk

I'm saying I'm sorry right now for all the Valentine's postings...
but ....."I ain't thru yet..."
