hearts & flowers

Completely inspired by this tutorial at skip to my lou, Parker and I got out some old crayons, the pencil sharpener, sissors, wax paper and the "Iron Boat" and made some pretty cool Valentine's Day Hearts for our window.

Now he says a couple times a day "I want to shave with you Mommy"!

Our friend Francesca performed a little science experiment with flowers which Parker has been really into. Here are instructions. I didn't take a before photo but it started with bright white flowers which were put in a cup with water & a few drops of red food coloring and 17 hours later here they are. very cool!

Happy Valentines Day!

I tried those hearts too, but mine weren't very pretty. I used more than one color and they looked kind of like mud blended together.
Yours are very pretty.

Thanks for commenting on my blog today. I love some of the ideas here and will most definitely be trying some of them next week. We did these hearts too. Just love their little simple bits of beauty!!
