Silver Sunday on Valentine's Day!

This post is going to be a bit crazy...but hey, it is Valentine's day, and I am in LOVE!

First I thought I would show my birdcage....$1.00 at garage was ugly mint out came the spray paint....see the ivy...keep that thought!

Today is Silver Sunday at Gypsy Fish....I found this sweet silver dish at Big Lots for $ I could not resist...hubby contributed the chocolate strawberries....I'd offer you one, but, uh, they got ate!

He also brought me a sweet little heart cake.....I put it on our tray from our wedding with my silver cake server. I also love the wrought iron heart napkin ring...I have four...I found 2!

I thought I better show my xoxo on my front door...I kinda forgot about this....I found at Michaels this year. I think it is soooo cute.

So what did I get for Valentine's day????

Nope, not kidding. My husband says "nothing says lovin like a new set of 4!"

But I did get a wonderful card......

I love it! and him!

Ok, and the ivy...well, I have had this light pole for 3 years...I always add new silk flowers for the different holidays and have seen it in precious posts....but NO MORE...
My beloved HOA (a little sarcasm here) decided that I was a BADDDDDD homeowner and fined me $50.00 for silk flowers. They were loving (oops) to give me 10 days to correct the illegal action. I am sure you agree with me, it looks so much better now empty....because we wouldn't want to offend anyone with silk flowers!!! (cuz real ones do real well here in AZ, oh oh, there I go again!) So, let's see if I get fined for the ivy in the birdcage.....that is up near my house on the table.... and again, I say, my headstone???? WHATEVER!!

Ok, enough of that....I hope you all are having a love filled day with those you love and making memories!!

Happy Valentine's Day Ceekay! Love the new tires, lol. I've had many Christmas's and birthdays when my dad would buy me tires or brakes or something car related for me when I needed it. To me it was the perfect present!

June said...

Beautiful silver for those yummy treats Ceekay. Oh man...I want a set of 4 for Valentine's Day. Well at least by Mother's day anyway. Hubs is a sweetie to give you such a lovely card. You lucky girl.

I can't even imagine how I would deal with a HOA. Not well I'm sure.

Sarah said...

Ceekay, what a beautiful card from your husband. And new tires!!! Great post with all the shiny silver and chocolate and hearts. Love those little iron heart napkin rings. Hope you find the other pair. LOL

Cottage Rose said...

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day

Julie Harward said...

The tires do look good though! Loved the xoxo on the cute! And I love dipped strawberries, I love to do them for the family! Funny about the faux flower what can you do? Have a great Valentines day tomorrow. Thanks for your kindness today, it meant a lot! Come say hi any time :D

Happy Valentine's Day CeeKay...
Not the beautiful flowers around the lamp post. And let's see you have had those how long now? What is it with HOA anyway? What flowers can grow in direct sun? I guess they want no beauty. I loved those flowers, and just now how am I supposed to know I am almost to your house? Hummm?

Oh Sweet Hubby to give you (4) new tires. They will take you lots of trips to the Dollar Store for sure. I know I loved mine when I got them for my birthday last year. I needed them, and it tickled me pink.

Those strawberries looked delish, and how sweet of hubby to bring those home. I can see why there are no leftovers, they looked scrumptous. Thank you for sharing my sweet friend.

Have a beautiful and blessed day tomorrow. I am so tickled your grandkids are coming over. Let me know what Little Miss thinks of her necklace that you made. I know she will love it.

Happy Valentine's CeeKay, you are so loved sweetie. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

Ceekay, I love your silver and the strawberries and the cake are just so yummy looking. I just can't believe the HOA and some of their stupid rules. Your tires are just great, I know he loves you and this is to keep you safe. Hope you have a super Valentine's. I can't wait to see you on Thurs. for your BD. Hugs, Marty

Grammy Linda / Behind My Red Door said...

Hi Ceekay! I think tires to keep you safe are a wonderful gift coming from your DH. We already know he is a keeper with all the other little special things he does.

I hope you have a day filled with love and happiness and memories! And thank you for your thoughtful kind words on my post.

warm hugs, Linda

Hi Ceekay, New tires are good! They keep you, {his loved one} safe! LOL!

All of your silver and Valentines goodies are so pretty! The little heart cake was so cute!

So glad I don't have to deal with a HOA! I've heard all sorts of crazy stories about them! Hope they leave your ivy and super cute bird cage alone! :)

Happy Valentines Day to you and yours! ~hugs, Rhonda

Debra@Common Ground said...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Are you serious!!???? You got fined for fake flowers?? I never heard of such. I think your sweet husband's gift of new tires was wonderful. Love makes the world (or car) go round...(get it? bad Lynn). Happy Valentine and a wonderful Silver Sunday.

Pat said...

Absolutely beautiful!! Your hubby did a great job...even with the 4 tires. ;-) At least he's keeping you safe.

Wishing you the happiest of Valentine's Days and holding you in prayer.


The Quintessential Magpie said...

You have got to be kidding me? How did they even know the flowers wren't real. You can't tell that from the street! Ceekay, some people don't have anything better to do than to contemplate their navels! LOL!

Love your goodies... the delicious ones and the decorative ones. All such fun! Really love XOX! :-)

Speaking of which... Happy Valentine's Day!

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

HI Ceekay ~ Wow!! Your husband is sooo sweet and so is that delish cake I bet, and those strawberries!!! But he is right - nothing says I love you like tires. Have a fantastic Valentines Day!!!!!

Bernideen said...

Great tires- hey where I live they make all the difference in NOT sliding in the snow!

Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

Hi Ceekay,
Love the XOXO sign and the chocolate covered strawberries. Your card is so sweet!

That's so silly about the silk flowers. I hope you get away with the birdcage, that would just be wrong if they were that bad!

Happy Valentine's Day!

4 Tires...hmmm...well that is one expensive gift I will say that!!!

Ceekay, Thank you so much for the message you left for me at my shop. I was so touched that you went out of your way to call me. You are a special person and I will keep you in my prayers. I hope you had a happy Valentine's Day! Sending you a big hug. Lulu.

A Hint of Home said...

What!! $50.00! Why do they always fine you when you are trying to improve the looks of your property?
Did the neighbors get fined for the shrubs they moved?
Love all the silver and the sweets look yummy! I'm sure you loved them.
Glad you have safe tires. Especially since I will be riding on them soon. lol

Terra said...

You shared so many Valentines sweets with us, and thank you. That HOA is very annoying, what is wrong with them?
Happy Valentines Day,

Laura said...

I love your tires!
My husband gave me a high pressure washer once.

I loved it.

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

The gift of love (tires) made me smile. Sweet.

The fine for the faux flowers made me frown. Unbelievable! HOA's are so full of themselves.

Happy belated V-day.

Your husband brings you chocolate and protects you, with new tires. He sounds like a keeper. Happy early Birthday to you.

Hi Ceekay,
Looks like you had a special Valentine's Day. I love your sweet diplay with the heart cake. Too yummy!! Love your silver pieces. The XOXO on the door is way cute. I love it.
Can you believe your HOA?A fine for silk flowers. I would owe a lot of money cause I use faux flowers when needed any place. Some neighborhoods here do the same thing. Thank God mine is not one of them. LOL.
Beautiful card from your hubby and I love the bird cage and ok the tires too. LOL

Hugs, Celestina Marie

I can't believe your HOA FINED you! OMG...we all need to put our heads together and figure out a little "passive-aggressive" PAYBACK! What jerks. I can say that because we have a jerky HOA where we live.

On to some cool that wonderful bargain birdcage. .. and BLots trays with yummmmmmy strawberries....and that amazing heart cake. I swear, Ceekay, you have the most wonderful man...but you know that!! :) L, Dana
