Vintage Valentines

Traditionally, Valentines tends to be pink, fluffy and all things cute. Throw in a plushie, a love heart and plenty of chocolate. Make it uber girly and add some sparkle. It just doesn’t appeal to me these days! Perhaps in years gone by this would have appealed, because I am a romantic at heart but now, my definition of romance has changed. It isn’t about big displays of affection or spending stupid amounts of money. It’s about little thoughtful moments, for example talking and holding hands on the couch while you share a meal. It’s about taking time to be with the one you love, sharing their burdens, lifting their spirits and having yours lifted, in turn. It’s the little words, signs and gestures that show love and care. They don’t cost much but are priceless and create precious memories that will tide you over if you’re having a low day ❤

Sunday morning

Gack! Now I have that song going through my head and I can assure you: this lady is NOT easy like Sunday morning, lol. As I created this scene, it really reminded me what Sundays are for me. I love to spend time on the couch with a mug of tea, just chilling and knitting. It’s one of my favourite ways to wind down, although some people would never guess this from the way I swear at my projects sometimes. Friends would like to believe that their gifts are made with love. Many of their gifts are often made with expletives! I suppose this is why my red cushion appeals so much; it often sums up my mood, especially as I approach the end of a project!

Yesterday, the Christmas tree went up in our home and today we will begin to wrap the gifts. I’m not a ‘Christmassy’ person by nature; I believe it’s more for children’s enjoyment than mine, but I do enjoy giving gifts at this time of year. It’s my way of saying “thank you, you’re appreciated” to those people in my life.

On that note, it’s time to get ready for the day and see what happens. I hope your Sunday is a chilled and peaceful one ❤
