Love and Romance

Do you remember writing your initials and your boyfriends initials inside of a heart all over your notebook when you were in school? I do. I have found something better. Something a lot more permanent.

And it is created by none other than our own sweet Fifi. You all know Fifi. She is the editor of Romantic Country Magazine. She has a beautiful inspiring blog called Chez Fifi.

My heart arrived today. It has Mr. Comforts of Home and my initial on it. It is fabulously aged, made of heavy metal and just perfect!

I spent some time this afternoon playing photographer and looking for the perfect place for our heart.

Fifi is selling these custom made hearts. You can have your initials, the name of your cottage, your favorite saying...... Fifi has some samples on her current blog post. So head on over and visit her! Tell her Penny sent you. Just click here.

Merci Fifi! I adore it.

Welcome Home,

Oh, Penny! This is so precious! I just love it and I love it everywhere you put it! But I'm kinda partial to that handsome rooster!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Penny,
I am thrilled you like the heart. Thanks so much for your kind words.
I am also happy to know it came on time for your anniversary (Happy Anniversary!)

Lucky, i just took a look at her heart creations before i came here. lol

Lee Laurie said...

I remember doing that...and having to scratch out 'his' name almost every other month! LOL I have an old notebook that says...Lee loves Reggie scratched out with Lee loves Randall...then Lee loves Ronald. LOL All those 'R' names. I ended up getting married to the Ronald years later. It only lasted 3 years. But we do have a beautiful daughter who is now 26 years old. I love your sign. It is so precious! I like it everywhere that you placed it. Happy Anniversary!

That is so darling Penny! It's too late to order one for my husband's BIG birhtday that I have been busy planning a party for, but maybe I'll order one for our anniversary.

That is so sweet Penny! What a romantic thing to do. I really like her blog - she has so many neat ideas and I like getting sneak peaks into the magazine spreads she does.

Well Penny, isn't that just the cutest thing! Yes, Fifi is indeed a talented lady. As is our sweet Penny!

I heart your heart! I think Mr. Rooster looks like he should be sporting it around his neck.

How cute, isn't so much fun playing photo shoot with a new cute treasure.

Love the pictures of your outdoor living area. That one that had the great view in the background took my breath away! How lucky are you to have such a beautiful view. Loved the little mosiac coasters, too!
