Sweet As Pie ~ Valentine's 2018

"Friendship gives wings to the heart 
as there is no distance that can set them apart."
When friends wing their way to your home 
from across the miles, it is indeed a sweet treat.

 It's an occasion to pull out some 
pretty china and set a welcoming table.

Red checks and tassels!
❤️   ❤️   ❤️   ❤️
What could be more fun for
 celebrating good friends?

Old French mustard crocks hold stems of anemones 
in joyful anticipation of our friends' arrival. 

 The vintage crocks, little souvenirs from
 a long ago vacation in France, 
are a nod to our shared love of all things French.

Marcella Hazan's Pasta Bolognese over a bed of spinach
provided a perfect one dish meal upon arrival.

Love Letter hand pies ~ 
the perfect little endulgance to end the evening! 
Thank you, Tiny Pies of Austin!

  Happy Valentine's Day 2018
to each of you across the miles!

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
