I have been married for 39 years, to my best friend. We have two beautiful daughters and two cats, Sam cat who is 17 and Bessie who is 5. Moved to Montana in 1974 from New Jersey and have never looked back. I work for an Alternative High School and it is the best job I have ever had (except for being a Mom) I call this my retirement job - it's part-time, I can do it till I retire which will be after this year, and it is so much fun! I use my blog as a secondary journal, to record the big events in my life.
Oooo, what a chair, if I could have one chair, this would be it!

Decorating for Valentine's Day
After all the hoop-la of Christmas, I love to calm the house down and for January, my home is very subtle in color and minimal in decor. But with the coming of February, I am needing some touches of red, and the punch of black and white to bring some life back into the space. I do not decorate for the holiday the conventional way. I like red hearts, but I don't sprinkle them all over the place. I hang one on my front door, I have a couple that hang on my walls, but for the most part I just love to add the color red here and there. Using a vintage cookie jar, a sewing whimsy, a kitschy chicken and a carving made by hubby, I get just the right amount of Valentine cheer. Always, Kit
