...... Happy Valentines ......


A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
- Ingrid Bergman

Je suis desja d’amour tanné
Ma tres doulce Valentinée…

I am already sick of love
My very gentle Valentine…

The above was the very first known valentine poem ever written.  It was from 
Charles Duke of Orleans to his wife in 1415.

I am not quiet sure if it is romantic or not !!

Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st;
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. 

William Shakespeare 

Now this guy knew how to make you swoon!

I am looking forward to a few days with my husband and dinner out tonight and tomorrow too.  What ever you are up to have a wonderful Sunday and as always .... Happy Stitching.
