Happy Valentine's Day

Well, it happened again.  I've been away from here much longer than expected.  This past week I've been crocheting and baking so that I could spread a little love at school. Everyone is always so appreciative of a handmade, heartmade, homemade gift.
I've also been counting my blessings where weather is concerned.  It's been gorgeous here the past couple of days so walking has been a must.  We are watching the news now of the flooding in England -- the worst they've seen in 250 years.  And the East Coast of the States is again experiencing harsh winter storms.
I hope wherever you are that you are safe and warm and loved.
Blessings,

Happy Valentine' Day. Your homemade treats and crafts are darling. Those cookies fascinate me. What kind are they, and is it glaze that holds on the heart candies. I love the look of that.

Hi Wanda, it is a simple sugar cookie recipe that I use. Can't be used for cut-outs but great for quickly baking up. You can find the recipe here: http://mimis-kitchen.blogspot.com/2012/01/sprinkle-cookies.html
I made a glaze of powdered sugar and lemon juice. Sprinkled the little hearts on and it sets up nicely. If you like chocolate, you could also use a little bit of butter, powdered sugar and cocoa powder to make a frosting. I posted about both ways here: http://tsdailytreasures.blogspot.com/2012/06/tea-and-favorite-things.html
Best wishes,Tammy

Linda said...

I love that you share love at school for Valentine's Day - I do the same thing with my co-workers and it's so much fun. : )

It's -2 actual temperature here this morning. Again. Tons of snow piled up everywhere, but we do have sunshine today again after a day of another snowstorm. You know that I'm so longing for warm weather. This has been a most long, horrific winter for us and it's getting frustrating.
Hope you have a nice weekend,
Linda

A lovely Valentine post Tammy, I am from England and the rain here has barely stopped since way before Christmas. This morning however the sun is out (for now) and very welcome and cheering it is too. I have been extremely fortunate not to be in a flood area and my heart goes out to all those families across my country who have been affected. The flooded areas are really very bad and it has resulted in whole communities working together to help each other out the best way they can.

Pam said...

Love to you also. I too have neglected my blog recently. We are experiencing lovely weather here in AZ but my relatives in Kentucky are experiencing horrible cold and snow again.

I have a new computer and it sometimes makes it difficult to visit my blogging friends. I have missed your lovely blog.

Have a wonderful week.

Hi Tammy, What a cheerful happy blog you have here. Everyone where I live is depressed due to our non stop rain and high winds since before Xmas - amazing how the weather affects our moods. Have a nice day.
