~*A Craft & More Red*~

Happy Friday sweet blogging friends...I honestly don't know where the week has gone. I had planned on starting my spring cleaning this week, but that did not happen...too many places to go and appointments to keep! I hope to start next week!!!
My dear daughter wanted to give some Valentine goodies to her close friends. I made these little bags. They're the small paper bags that you can find in the craft section of Wal-mart if you're still lucky to have a craft section. I added foam hearts and wrote on the bag with fabric paints. We added the candy and cut out a hole with a heart shaped cutter and added some ribbon. It was very inexpensive to make. The girls all loved them!

After having this table cloth and placemats on my table for a little while now, I decided I wanted a change...
I found this lace table cloth at Wal-mart on clearance for $7.00.
I've been looking at these placemats for months...finally broke down and got them...aren't they pretty? I just LOVE them!
This was a plain natural colored basket...it needed a little pick me up so I decided to paint it RED...yes, I went from a black obsession to a red obsession...I just can't help myself! My husband had asked me what color was next...lol!
Well, that's all for now...thank you so much for coming to visit me...I appreciate it very, very much! Wishing all of you sweet friends a very
Happy Valentine's Day.
I also want to thank all of you who visited and commented on my last post..."Tweaking my Tweaking." For those of you who have never tried the Wal-mart candles, I would encourage you to try them...they do smell so wonderful!
Love, Kim

    Thanks for stopping by today! I love your dining chairs ~wink, wink~. I think they are the same as mine. I really like your red placemats and your new tablecloth. Isn't it funny how we look at things for so long, knowing we want them badly, then we finally break down and buy them. It's a girl thing for sure! Have a Great Weekend!

  18. Black and red are my favorite colors to decorate with!

    I totally agree with you on how great the Wal-Mart candles smell. I have always been a huge Yankee candle fan but boy are they expensive! I think the Wal-Mart candles smell just as good.


  19. Those turned out so cute! I bet the girls loved them.

    I love your new red obsession too! Very pretty!

  20. Kim, I am a little late, but your goodies bags or darling and your basket turned out great. Hope it was a great weekend for you and your family.

  21. That is quite a view from your kitchen window. Beautiful! I love the white vases/pots. I find that when I take a picture it gives you a better idea of how things look. The I go back and do a little tweaking myself.

  22. Kim:

    Such a cute idea with the bags! I also love the decorations:)

    I looove your hair shorter. Just goes to show how long I have been away from blogging. I have had a medical problem that really has made me slow down.

    Hoping to stop by again. I will have to add you to bloglines to get a daily dose of your wonderful posts. Ooooh that rhymes.

    Hugs~ Renee

    Hey! We women just have it in us to change things around. ;-)

  27. I love all your sweet valentine's day things :) The bags you made are so cute! Just goes to show how you don't always have to spend much $$ to make something special. A little imagination and creativity can go a long way. Thanks for sharing all your neat holiday stuff!

  28. Hi Kim,
    Yes, when the weather is warmer it will be great to meet up and I do think the town is soooo charming. Is that little cross stitch shop still there plus the antique shops? With today's economy you never know:)

    I know Rhonda would love to visit too:)
