Farm Girls Celebrate

Farm Girls gathered to celebrate our two year anniversary and Valentines Day at my home on February 12, we had decided to make Valentines cards and tags, with Katy and Robin teaches us what we were about to do. These glittered heart shaped came from K. Marie, one of my favorite paper artist, she also has a sister whom has a candy shop in Milwaukie, Oregon called Enchante, a wonderful place to visit and be treated.

I love bringing out these hearts for the Valentine season.
Plenty of red accented my house for this holiday celebration, I have so much fun changing the colors in my home, to fit the season, some times just adding an accent color.
As you can see I always have a great array of Aprons to choose from.
A great resource for inspiration "Romantic Homes."
Robin, myself and Katy, we got Roger to take a photo before he went off to get chicken poop for the garden, he would later say we girls could earn our badges if we shoveled the chicken poop on the garden, hee, hee!
I had to share my quilt that was almost done except for the binding, that would be completed when I would go to Montana for my winter visit.
Everything was ready for the girls to choose and work with to make their special Valentines. I told them I think half the fun for me is gathering the supplies for them to work with.
A perfect collection of ribbons to play with.
Lots to choose from with a few treats to nibble on.
Robin and Katy concentrating on their Valentine projects.
Lots to choose from, foil hearts, edge stampers for our little note cards.
The table was set with a Valentine theme for our luncheon.
This place setting was set for our Farm Girl Erin who was unable to attend as she has been out of town with her husband on a job, she has been dearly missed.
Toasting to our second year as a group of Farm Girl Women. The glasses I used were very special as they were purchase from Willows Nest when they were down in Buxton, Oregon, on the bottom of the glass is edge made in France.
Our lunch included tuna noodle casserole provided by Katy, a crasin medley salad from Robin and Parmesan crisp mini breads from Trader Joe's, finishing with a flavored Ice drink, what color, none other than red of course.
Our desert was a peppermint pattie cup cake sitting on top of an individual cup cake stand from FarmHouse Wares.
These sweet meringues were a nice light treat for us Farm Girls. This scalloped heart shaped dish came from my mother-in-law who has since past on, it is always brought out for this holiday with a smile and remembrance of what she meant to me. Love you mom Muma!
We had chosen to do a Valentine exchange, Robin made us spiced pumpkin granola, what a great treat, tasty yum.
Katy made us home made marshmallows, following two separate recipe, what a special treat.
A collection of Valentine Gifts from my Farm Girl Friends.
Our finished Valentine ready for giving. Hope your day was all that you wanted it to be.
