Yep, we did it. Faye suggested we convert our Christmas tree to a Valentine's Day tree. She had done it on a smaller tree in her craft/sewing room with lovely hand sewn ornaments (See it here: carolinastitcher.blogspot.com). Well, I didn't have any lovely hand-stitched ornaments waiting in the wings for me to use, so we just made some hand-made ornaments out of foam hearts. It was fun and we like how it looks! Maybe next year I'll have some hand-sewn ornaments!

A friend and I have been chatting on Facebook about how we really don't want to take down our trees. I have a 12 foot tree and I just love turning it on early in the morning when it's still dark or in the evening, getting myself a cup of mint chocoate coffee, and stitching on the couch or talking with my daughter while she has hot chocolate. My friend is thinking about hanging lights in the off-season and I'm thinking that might be a fun idea!
