You always have such neat things going on. I wanted to ask you for ideas for valentines for my ladies group to make for shut-in folks from our church. I try to do something different each year. I think maybe we did teabag folding last year. I am having trouble coming up with a new idea. If you have any Valentine ideas rattling around in your brilliant brain, I would sure appreciate hearing about them. Thanks!!

I found a craft on AllFreeCrafts, and made one. It's quick,easy and useful and pretty. I'm still looking for ideas :D Link and the one I made on my blog.
This is the heart shaped one, and I also made a round one, equally pretty. All You need are the paper doilies, tissue or cotton balls to spray the scent on, glue, ribbon, and small flowers and trims. I used what I already had on hand, lol.

you're welcome :D

here's a paper cone, for flowers or candy, would be great for shut-ins! make a larger cone, use some floral foam and aluminum foil to wrap the flowers and foam, and it will last a lot longer for a shut-in. it could also hang from a head board or dresser knob so they can see it.

i don't know what zone you live in, but it's all over the south. if that's the case, ask your neighbors and they'll be thrilled to let you chop some down. be careful, you don't want to accidentally let this nasty stuff start growing in your own yard!
when you find some kudzu vines...here's a link to help get you going on some projects.

What is always amazing to me is that the flower is never mentioned!!!!
It is a beautiful flower, similar to a wisteria flower. I know because in the late 1930's, Daddy planted a vine for a trellis in our yard. I could sit in the swing on the porch and smell the flowers. It never spread much, but after Daddy saw, in the north end of the county, that is was invasive he removed it from the yard. I guess it was there probably 8-9 years.
