I don’t do winter very well, so decorating for Christmas and Valentine’s Day is fun and brightens up dreary, bitter-cold winter days and long, dark winter nights. We leave our Christmas tree up all January until I start decorating for Valentine’s. My birthday is in February so I wear my heart on my sleeve. ❤


It was love at first sight when I saw this red top–from Reitmans– with black lace hearts motif. Hearts are my trademark: partly since I was born in February and also because I love romance. ❤

My black lace choker looks good with it.

I decorate with hearts, candles and mini lights all year ’round because love is always in style. ❤

Suzanne has a flare for decorating and I just LOVE the way she decorated her mantel for February.

    Nice hearts, and still love the red boots… esp with the contrasting black. Little colour for the month of Feb 🙂

  2. I agree that decorating can help us make it through the last few months of winter.

    Reitmans seems to have some cute stuff lately. It has been a while since I was in one of their stores. I adore the red booties!

    We just got back from a little escape from winter.

    Have a great birthday month and thanks for the shout-out : )

      You’re very welcome Suzanne! I’m happy for you to have had a chance to escape, so did I in January. The weather in Seattle wasn’t tropical, but it was mild and pleasant with sunny days.

      Keep warm and hibernate if you can.

      ❤ carmen

    Oooh! Happy B-Day, kid, in advance. Charming V-Day top, too. You look very pretty in that deep pink. I bought a black chiffon blouse with big, kissy red lips all over it to wear at the restaurant on the holiday, and Dan was appalled at the “disembodied mouths”. Not really getting it, is he? Wearing it anyway. Ha!

      Thank you so much Jan! Can’t wait to see that pretty blouse!
      Tell Dan, it’s not mouths, it’s kisses like we used to put on envelopes with lipstick! Sounds like we’re both young at heart and romantic!

      Lots of love and kisses!!

      ❤ carmen
