Happy Saint Valentine's Day ♥ ...

waiting on the kitchen counter
for my family
 ♥
chocolate chip muffins
made with love ...
 
some coconut macaroons
because they are my husbands favourite ♥
 
This little "chalkboard" has been hanging in the kitchen for years.
I made a few chalkboards as gifts one Christmas from vintage frames and chalkboard paint.
When it came time to make one for myself, I had run out of the chalkboard paint, so I used what I had available - plain black acrylic paint.  It worked beautifully!  I have written and erased many, many notes & quotes over the years and it is still holding up :-D
Love
must be as much a light
as it is
a flame

Wishing you a lovely
Saint Valentine's Day

What a beautiful post for LOVE day Deb! When you shared the photo of the cupcakes I thought 'Oh darn her' :))) because I have been trying to swear off sweets for awhile and I saw that batter and almost went batty. Yum!
Thanks for sharing about the chalkboard too. I have to make one for my daughter and I have black paint on hand and I never would have guessed I could just use that.
I can see from the last few posts I have missed here that you have been painting beautiful things this winter. I love to think of you with your art supplies out painting away on a snowy day.
sending hugs...

hi june ~ thank you for your lovely note xo thankfully, I don't like chocolate, but my family does, so I won't have any temptations there ... now cheesecake ... that's something else :-D
hope you try the black acrylic paint... just give it a few coats, letting each one dry in between ( I put it on with a cheap sponge brush to avoid streaks ♥ I know it will turn out beautifully!
