Good morning and it is cold here today and going to get colder as the day progresses. I don't mind certain temperatures but single digits just aren't my favorites.lol Come in get a cup of coffee and lets sit by the fireplace and visit. Oh, you can tell I have made some changes and you now have someplace to put your cup when you sit on the sofa. BTW you can have hot tea or cocoa if you prefer. I know all of you aren't coffee drinkers, so help yourself to the hot drink of your choice. I will share a little secret. I drink coffee out of mugs, as well as hot chocolate, BUT I want my hot tea in a china cup! Have no idea why. So you get the cup of your choice, snuggle in and lets talk about hearts.
As you can see I moved the walnut blanket chest in front of the couch again. It hasn't been there in a long time. I also moved the couch back over a foot to make more room where we sit. There is nothing behind the couch now, which is a first. I like it so far.
See. I like it, do you? I also moved the bench back into the kitchen and put a chair where it was.
I had it there during Christmas and got several comments from friends that they liked it there. Well that is it. I moved furniture and cleaned, mopped, etc all day yesterday. I am not used to it and had a few sore muscles to prove it.lol
Now on to hearts. I love hearts. Hearts represent so much to me. So I will share some of mine.
This candle stick lamp is one of my favorites as well as the tin revere lantern with the heart
Love taking food someplace in these. Have a casserole dish not included here.
Love this old brown bowl with hearts on it, remember I found it at a yard sale in Ohio.

Hope you have enjoyed me sharing my "hearts" with you. There are a few more for later. It is wonderful to have you Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS:Remember in my last post I mentioned bloggers MIA? Well I am happy to report three of them have since blogged. Tammy at Country Girl at Home, Angie from Berry Homespun Primitives, and Jan from Life on Buttermilk Hill. I was so happy to see them posting again.
PSS: Please continue prayers for all our bloggers. Tamra has been cancer free for 1 year now. Thank you for your prayers
PSSS: If you are tired of hearts you want want to read my next post, as I will be sharing more.lol

    I'm certainly going to try to get back in the groove! I've missed my blogging friends! Oh and my countrygirlathome email was hacked and totally messed up and wouldn't let me log into it. It ended up having tobe deleted. So many things..computer crashed. Anyway, it's just frustrating. I am going to have to come up with a new email address for contact for my blog. I'll post it when I do.

    Thanks for thinking of me! Have a great week! :)
