Valentine’s Day Tablescape

 Valentine's Day Table Setting - Marty's Musings

I had this wonderfully sentimental, perfect table setting post to show you all last Friday.

Then the computer ate it.

Buh-bye, sayonora, adieu, adios, and it was gone.

I may have even cried a few tears over it.

Okay, maybe a lot. I’m not telling ~smile~

But then, miracle of miracles, it came back.

Thank you, sweetheart,  for reminding me that the greatest of all these is love.

(And for putting up with my tears and panic when my blog went into The Twilight Zone.)

***Glitter hearts were made using these instructions. All other table goodies were found shopping the attic, my craft room, ribbon stash and outdoors!
