Happy Valentines' day to all

I haven't posted in a while because my heart broke when Flossie Mae was either taken or killed this week. I know for sure she didn't just roam away because she lay by the front door or on the porch swing ALL the time. She pined to come inside so much but due to allergies she stayed outside with Thomas unless the temps got below freezing then they went into the basement level. I felt so bad by day 3 as I figured something must have happened to her. I'm not even going to go there where she could be as I just can't but if she passed away, I hope she was not hurting.

I will miss her. Thomas misses her alot. He didn't even eat for 3 days. But in my heart I knew after this long she went over to Rainbow Bridge where hopefully she met Ren and is now a very happy cat again.
Isn't it amazing how close we get to our furbabies? I know I do.

Well, anyways I hope your Valentines is going to be a good one. I got the best card I've ever got in my life and will hold it to my heart always.

This was at my door and very special message in a bottle. A very sweet, sweet gift.
I will cherish it forever.

The words written I will hold close to my heart forever.

I am reading, reading, and more reading. This is one of the books and I also got a brand new hardback called The Circle Maker. I didn't put these on my Kindle because I knew I wanted to write in them.
So my shelf is full of love books.

I know I still have stitching to finish so I can frame as well and hopefully on this gray, cloudy, misty cold day, I can get it all done.

This is the one in the header pic I finished last year and a freebie on Primitive Betty's blog. If you haven't been to her blog she is THE sweetest and has the best freebie's too. Take a look see.

Seems like it was yesterday I was playing with Flossie Mae!

Bless her heart where ever she parted and how.

She was a rescue but within one hour became family and lounged sleeping on the back porch in the sunlight.

And Abbie sends her love to all on this love-filled day!

She is a bit spoiled methinks.

She promptly and lightly patted me on the head this morning for her treat at 7am.

She likes to stick to a schedule.

She sends to all a warm, furry kiss and hug to let you know you are special no matter where you live and where you are.

From this love shack to another,

Happy Valentine's Day!


PS Whatever you do, do it with all your heart.


  1. happy valentine day to you too deary :)

    big hugs cucki xxx

  2. Happy Valentine Day Jennifer!!
    I am still hoping for you Flossie Mae will show up at your door...It has been 10 months since Buttons died and I still miss him terribly!! Not knowing for sure is hard but there is still hope.. Your stitching is beautiful.. I am still hoping for you to design the saying about dancing in the rain..

  3. Happy Valentine's Day Jennifer. I am so sorry about Flossie Mae. :( Pets bring such love to our lives. Your home is so wonderful!

  4. Hi Jennifer, Sweet post. I'm hoping Flossie Mae will show up. Our cat once disappeared for over a week and finally showed up looking like a drowned rat...and wouldn't stop purring once she was back inside. This was years ago, and she is still with us. Keeping my fingers crossed. Enjoy the day! Vera

  5. So sorry to read about Flossie Mae, Jennifer. I do hope she'll just show up.
    Love your stitches and wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!

  6. So sorry about Flossie Mae. So sad. Glad you are having a good day. xx

  7. Wondering how close Flossie was to giving birth to her babies. Many times a cat will go away to a private place to have her babies then return when they are born. Praying she will come home soon. So sad.
    Happy Valentine's Day, Jennifer.

  8. Dearest Jennifer,

    So sorry to read about Flossie Mae... Not knowing for sure what and how is heart breaking. The mama cat that we rescued from the hotel's botanical garden in Acapulco disappeared one Sunday while we were at Church. We had her only for 9 months, just had her surgery done so she could finally enjoy her own life... Either kidnapped or killed, we never found any trace. All the advertisements, pamphlets and searching never yielded anything. Guess one day we will know for sure...
    Love to you and Happy Valentine's Day!


  9. I am so sorry about Flossie Mae. She will always be in your heart. Have a Happy Valentine's Day.

  10. I'm sorry to hear about your missing Flossie Mae, but don't give up hope. Praying she'll come home to you. I sent my kitty Boo to the Bridge today so your post has special meaning for me. Take care.

  11. Sweet Flossie Mae; I love posts with her in them. You had me sorrowing over her, but reading all these hopeful comments has me hoping she will turn up, too.

  12. Sorry to hear Flossie Mae is missing, as Sandy said she could have had here kittens, they have them is the strangest places. Everyone has a story but my neighbors cat was missing for THREE weeks and then suddenly appeared in he front yard. Fingers crossed xxx.

  13. I'm glad you had a nice Valentine's Day, but sad over the loss of Flossie Mae. I'm sure she is in a better place having fun with Ren.

  14. I'm so sorry to hear you lost your precious Flossie Mae. I know how hard it is, and I hope you see her again someday. Happy belated V Day to you too. I had a couple of very nice phone calls from friends, and it was a good day. (I had a finish too, so that helped!!) Here's hoping you have a good day tomorrow and are sleeping peacefully now. Love and hugs from Yes Dear to Abby!

  15. Sorry to hear about Flossie Mae, Jennifer.
    I hope you still had a great Valentine's Day.
    And, a pat-pat for little Abbie.

  16. I am so sorry about Flossie Mae. Hoping that she will still turn up at your door. Happy Belated Valentine's Day.

  17. I'm heartbroken for you concerning Flossie Mae! I'm sure she is at Rainbow Bridge playing! We have PINS this weekend if you are interested!
