Annual Love Fest

I captured these images from our annual Love Fest hosted this year by our
wonderful friends Carl and Lori. Six of us get together every year to
celebrate Valentine's Day and this year Lori chose crowns as her theme.
This is the entrance to the dining room from the living room

Can you see the beautiful crown in this photo?






The flowers on the table-a little out of focus.

You can almost see the beautiful detail in the carpet.


Chandelier candlesticks (from Home Goods)



A gift from the Love Fest

recent event with you. Sign up to receive my blog via

Good morning dear Susan!!! THANK YOU FOR COMING TO VISIT ME and to listen to my favorite song of the Beatles..well, ONE OF MY FAVORITES! And we are thrilled to have 30 years of joy and humor and kindness. Oh, I wish I could tell you who the artist is of that bluebird and I wish I could paint one for you, but watercolour is not my medium of abilities!!!!

MUCH LOVE TO YOU! Anita
