Does Your ♥ Go Pitter Patter?

Does your heart go pitter patter when you think of your Valentine?table 1654 Or do you celebrate anti Valentine's Day?

table 1803

Some of the younger single teachers I worked with did the latter.  If they weren't in a relationship, they used to have Man Hater Parties.  :)

table 556

They really didn't hate men, just a way for them to have some fun at the expense of the opposite sex!

table 567 So how do you share the love?

A loaf of bread, a jug of wine?

This Gnarly kind will be just fine!

Picture 1710

We play the game of hugs and kisses...

Picture 1869 Some are wins and some are misses!

If the losses make your spirits droop

Picture 1642

Just have a cup of heart filled soup!

If you  feel you still might cry

Picture 1852 Have a HEART shaped pizza pie!

Oh you still don't feel much better?

Picture 1833

Here's a salad with LIPS of feta!

We'll have a party , our diets forsake

table 3182

table 3200 

table 3178

There is always room for cookies and cake!

The game of love is full of blips,

So please enjoy these candy lips!

Mmmmmmwah!  Happy ♥ Day everyone!

I am joining Laurie at Bargain Hunting with Laurie for her Valentine Party, The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday and the Heart to Heart Party.

Thank you for visiting!

(The cakes were made with devils food cake and cherry pie filling and a heart shaped cutter.  The cupcake you slice off the top, cut a heart out and put the cherries on and replace the top. My version of Black Forest Cake. I made the candy lips with a mold and pink melts. )

One more thing and then I'll dash...

A heart shaped egg with baked ham hash!  :)

  4. Oh, Kathleen. What an EASY and VERY ATTRACTIVE and DELICIOUS chocolate cupcake treat. Even I can do that. And I'm going to. I'll pick up the cake mix (I very, very rarely start from scratch.) and the pie filling tomorrow. My family will be gone till late afternoon, so I have get them done in the morning and have them all ready to go.

    I think this was one of your best poems. So fun to read as I scanned through the pictures.

    You've been busy this week.

  41. All your heart food is just too cool! We never go out on Valentine's Day (don't like the crowds) and we also try to go with Meatless Mondays. I think I will make heart-shaped pizzas for tomorrow evening. Thanks so much for the idea!

  43. My daughter was with me as I was viewing your post -- she kept on saying, "Why can't you do this or that?" I just did heart-shaped pizzas on Saturday -- I should have saved it for the real day. Lots of love going on here on this post. Love the little red glass x's and o's and the red felt hearts. Joni
