MY FUNNY VALENTINE

MY FUNNY VALENTINE
YOU'RE MY FAVORITE WORK OF ART
STAY, LITTLE VALENTINE, STAY
EACH DAY IS VALENTINE'S DAY

Another from the archives. Large oval paper mache box. Painted Folk Art Baby Pink and decoupaged with Mary Engelbreit Valentines. Crepe paper ruffle on bottom. Again, Mary Engelbreit border around lid. Top has large slit decorated with polka-dots and Be Mine letters. Love it!

Tissue paper nosegay sits next to the Valentine box.

Now, I know I usually just put some lyrics here, but ladies and gentlemen, THIS IS TOM JONES! Just have to have a video. Ladies, get your panties ready! :)

MY FUNNY VALENTINE



ENCORE!!! ENCORE!!!
Tom Jones
(DANCING - THAT MAN CAN DANCE!)
You've Got To Watch This

TREAT HER RIGHT



S.W.A.K.

P.S. If you ever get the chance to see Tom Jones live, grab those tickets, FAST! He puts on the greatest show. My husband and I have seen him three times so far and we'd go again in an instant. Last time, we brought our son, David, with us (he was probably about 14 years old at the time) - even he enjoyed it. We had third row, center seats at the Stamford Palace Theatre (one of those old refurbished theaters and there isn't a bad seat in the house). David had the pleasure of sitting next to Paul Schaeffer (you know, the orchestra leader for David Letterman). We've seen The Beach Boys and Johnny Cash there as well. Next time we go, I've got to bring Frannie with us, she'd love it!

I don't know which one I like better... the mailbox or the hat box. They are both great. Are you and Frannie enjoying the snow today??

I am so inspired. I was at Barnes and Noble and they had the day by day MEngebriet calendar down to $4. I picked it up and have enjoyed it and thought that it is to cute to throw away all of the pictures....but what to do with them. NOW I KNOW!!!! Mod Podge, here I come!!!! Thanks, Annelies
