{a pretty point}

It's here
the month I wait for all year long
Sweet February
the month of
love and joy
where roses flow freely
and it is OK to
eat chocolate
where sweet indulgences are everywhere

where I look for beautiful romantic treasures
to adore my home

to my delight I found one in my daughter's closet
her sweet ballet dress
too lovely to hide away
it's needs to make a
pretty point
and be hung for
eyes to see
because after all
a time to give into
your romantic notions

to celebrate my
ultra romantic
frame of mind
I will be posting
a new heart a day
just for you
Will you be my Valentine?



Elise said...

Ah yes, I am so with you there.... and so much pink around in Feb too !!!

Luiza said...

That dress is just breathtaking!!!!
It looks as if it´s taken from "Romeo & Juliet", so romantic!

I´m so glad , we took a step in to a new month... Soon it´s march, and spring =).

I wish you a lovely evening , my friend!

Catie said...

What a lovely way to pass away the cold winter months! February can tend to drag by, but you seem to have found ways to make it flyyy!

Andrea said...

Blessings, andrea

Teresa said... didn't even have to ask if I'd be your know I will!
I'll be your VALENTINE all year long!
That ballet dress is scrumptious!
Oh happy happy day to you!
Looking forward to the daily "fill my heart with Koralee love" images!

Auntie Cake said...

Oh yes, for sure!!! I can't wait for your show and tell. Isn't it fun to be on the lookout for Valentine hearts? (that's what I did all last week)

Love the dress, and am so glad you are putting it out. I have an old bowling shirt from my great-uncle hanging in my front entryway. It has sweet little bowling pin buttons and I love it. In the summer, I hang my aunt's bathing suit from the 50's. For the pretty costumes, I wish my girls had been dancers. Not so much fun to hang out hockey equipment, and it doesn't smell as good either!

Helen McGinn said...

I am in love with the dress; the detail is amazing, the little ballerinas beautiful. xx

"It is OK to eat chocolate"...I like the way you think! :)

Ah the month of love! If only it was the month of warmth ~ but perhaps that is the idea ~ to have it be cold outside and snuggle with the one you love inside!
