Greetings ~~ I just dropped back by to interrupt this post to say, we are under an extreme weather emergency here with rolling blackouts. It is bitter cold and very hazardous to be outdoors. Thank you for your kind comments. I will be by to visit you soon. Stay warm friends and safe in this recent winter storm. Sending hugs from Texas~~~~ Now on to my Giveaway post!

Hey Friends, It's still winter in my neck of the woods and I know it probably is for you as well. We had a long night of beaten down sleet and rain with snow accumulation and extremely cold temps. Just about everything closed today and roads are very hazardous.
I have my hand painted ceramic rose heart to send to someone special who is an active blogger,leaves a comment and becomes a new follower in this post only until the drawing on Feb.14th.

I also want to send this hand painted heart on it's travels, enclosed in this keepsake box with a Victorian graphic of a couple in love, surrounded by roses.

Thank you for entering my giveaway. I can't wait to send someone this special Valentine Gift!

I hope wherever you are today, you are safe and warm inside during this latest winter event. Here are a few pics from this morning's gift here in the Lone Star State.
The view out back and front. Under this snow is solid ice with temps 18 degrees. Very cold for Texas!

It is pretty to view, don't you think? However, I see someone has still gone to work, my little feathered Woodpecker friend is hard at work in my front yard tree. Can you see him in my closeup pic?

Thank you for stopping by, entering my Valentine Giveaway and your welcomed visit.
Blessings to you for a beautiful winter day.
Till next time,
Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie

What a pretty heart, I love roses!
We are expecting a blizzard this evening! We make a path in the snow for our 2 pugs to do their business, but Maggie pug has to go off course and then her little legs freeze up and one of us has to go pick her up and carry her in to the house. Now this is only after a minute or two!
I think we need to move with our pugs to Florida!
Have a nice warm day!

Hey, I am a bit disappointed we did not get the mega blizzard we were promised! It started out like a frenzy and then it slowed down.....all that media hype!
I saw Texas in the news with cars spinning out on the freeway.
Stay indoors today...light candles and drink tea!

How are you? I bet the cold is a real surprise for you all. My son outside Phoenix is so shocked how chilly it has been there.We had a blizzard this week, very heavy snow, we are officially over 100 inches this season and another storm expected Tuesday, but I love it. Tonite temps hovering around 5 below. Everything is looking so pretty here and PLEASE enter me too! You know I was going topost my piece you made full of hankies today and blogger eliminated the photo! Next post I will try again! Stay cozy, sending love and well wishes! Lori
