Happy Valentine's Day With Coke and Posies!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Last night, hubs and I
went to a French restaurant,
in Barrington, IL, called
L'Eiffel Bistrot.
We ordered our ususal,
Coke for me, Diet Coke for him
Lookie how they brought them....

These are the cutest little bottles made out of metal.
They really say Valentine's Day to me!
I asked if I could take them home,
our waitress said that she is asked
this all the time!

I wanted to make a friend of mine here
a little something for showing me around
our new area.
She made me a list of places
she knew we would need,
like the vet with phone number
and address.
THEN she drove me around to show me
where everything on the list is located!
How sweet is that!?!
She even showed me where
the Bald Eagles fly and fish!
Cannot wait to go back!

This is what I made for her...

A Lavendar heart sachet made from
wool felt and vintage buttons.

I saved this cute envelope from
Anthropologie. (They put my receipt in here
when I ordered online).
Love it!
It's even lined in the prettiest blue!

To dress it up,
I made a cute little posie pin
with vintage button.

This was the first posie
I ever made!
I'm hooked!
So cute, so easy!

Tonight we are just staying in and relaxing.
I'll watch The Bachelor and hubs
will read his new book.
Emma will cuddle in between us.
We'll eat a chocolate covered
graham cracker from the cutest
little chocolate shop in Barrington.
I will take pics there soon and share!
What a cute store!

I'm linking up...

What a sweet and thoughtful gift; there is nothing nicer than hand made and if it smells good too, that's icing on the cake.

Sorry, I missed your Valentine post. It sounds like you had a nice day! I love the bag and the heart! The off white colors of the heart are so pretty, love the buttons. I love the posie! I have to learn how to make them!!! We are getting an Anthropolgie in RI, in one of my favorite shopping centers. Now we will not have to drive over an hour to get to one. Talk about a place to get inspiration! I do edit my pictures, I love to edit! It is addicting. I am going to try the site you mentioned though. It might be better than what I am using. Thanks for the information!
