I'm so happy to welcome you to the MapleStone Home blog!

A Wee Bit of Valentines

I don't normally decorate for other minor holidays, mainly because I forget!! But this year, well I don't know what has gotten into me but FOR ONCE I remembered. Now I didn't go all out . . . I placed a few things in the cloche on my dining room table, which is in the kitchen because we are replacing the flooring and it is getting a few minor changes:

see the little boyds bear? dh gave me that one year for valentines.
I had a little too much fun with picmonkey; can't you tell?

So can you guess what this little guy is reading? Lets take a pick and see . . .

"How do I love thee . . . Let me count the ways . . . " 
Isn't he the cutest?

I also decorated a small c-mas tree. I bought it for a steal, even though I don't use colored lights I figured it would be great for other holidays:

It isn't much, but my grandson likes it.
