A BLOG TWEAK, A PIECE OF HOME AND A WHOLE LOTTA LURRRRVVVVVVE !! ..........

I have tweaked my blog a little .......... I thought that it was about time, so have changed my header pictures and had my navigation bar altered with the help of Diana @ Custom Blog Designs. If ever you need to update your blog and need a bit of help on the technical side, I can thoroughly recommend Diana. She was very helpful, very, very, patient and very quick ( and also very reasonable too ).




Above is a collage of a few photographs that I took of our home to use on my header  ....... 





We are not big on Valentines Day in our house ...... since I first met my husband 45 years ago, he told me that Valentines Day is for unrequited love and that, as ours is requited, it would be silly to celebrate it ( .....it could have been his way of getting out of buying a present !!) but, as it is the day of Love, here are a few appropriate images to savour .....















HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

  2. Oh I love the new look Jackie!!!! Your collage of 'Home' photos are beautiful!
    I also LOVE your header---so pretty!
    I think you and I have a lot in common, my husband isn't too keen on the big day either. And we met 44 years ago :)

  3. Like ourselves, we need a change every now & then. It's wonderful, and so are the "heart" photos. As always, you make every single element mean so very much. Happy Valentine's Day, darling...

  6. Hello Jackie:
    We LOVE the new look to your blog of understated elegance and sophisticated style. But then, on reflection, we should expect nothing less. But this is inspirational as is, we rather suspect, the whole of 'Home'.

    Like you, we really do not 'do' St. Valentine's Day and rather concur with your husband's viewpoint. However, we do today especially send you our love from a cold and wintry Budapest.

  7. Your 'tweaks' are gorgeous Jackie! I think it's time that 24C gets a bit of tweaking as well, been thinking about it for a while now, you've inspired me!
    My husband isn't all that much into Valentine's Day either...but I do celebrate it with my young students, nephews, and niece...they fill the day with love...and loads of candy!
    So here's wishing you a lovely, and very sweet Valentine's Day!♥

  12. Hi Jackie, I always find your blog to be beautiful every time I am here. We don't celebrate the holiday either. Joe asked about going out to eat and I told him he was crazy if he thought I would go out tonight. xo, olive

  13. Love your tweaking Jackie it's wonderful and this post is fabulous! Alex and I aren't too big on celebrating Valentines Day - it's the everyday small gestures that mean the most to us. Lately we have been having some very late night romantic dinners and I look forward to that every weekend! After 13 years together he still makes my heart soar! xxoo

  26. OH I celebrate it, cause I was on my way to the Hospital in a cab with my Mother. Renee was my Valentines present. Every time I see Japanese Magnolias, the pink ones, I remember the cab ride they lined the street and were in full bloom. yvonne

  31. We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day here either, although I did get the sheepfarmer a heart shaped cheese from a local farm! However, I never doubt for 1 minute how much I am loved.
