I was overcome by cake

Do you ever buy a cake just because it's pretty,
and you want to take its picture?

(no, that's probably just me)

Okay, so I was going to share some and eat some too,
but if it hadn't been heart shaped I wouldn't have brought it home!

The dog closest to the cake made a trip to the emergency vet yesterday.

Today he is feeling much better!  
~ I am so thankful ~

Somehow he hurt his neck, but is on the mend.
No chocolate cake for the dogs, but some doggy treats for sure!

Because they are sweet hearts!

So, anyway, I was overcome by cake while buying groceries today.
{Sadly, it didn't taste nearly as wonderful}

This is a heart shaped box with a mosaic on top.
Someone local made it and I found it at a craft show a few years ago.

Pink glitter paper heart

On my Valentine tree

Calling this after-Christmas-sale white tree
"a VALENTINE tree"
has allowed me to keep it out for at least
another week, when spring will be
knocking on my hearts door.

May sweetness and hearts
fill up your pre-Valentines week!
{and something chocolate too}

Good evening Violet,
As soon as you said one of the dogs made a trip to the emergency room, my first thought was, oh good grief, he got that cake! I am sorry he was injured, but happy to hear he is on the mend.
Now, for that yummy looking cake.. You know, that has happened to me before.. Looks better than it takes. Nope, never bought a cake to take a photo. teee
Beautiful post as always, love it all.

Good evening my dear and wonderful friend. I see our sweet Penny has come (she is just a FANTASTIC FRIEND!) and I am smiling and giggling as I see the expressions on these two! Until you, I had never thought that afghans had such PLUCK! teeheee....look at their eyes; that Dazzle KNOWS she is MISS THANG...Drifter is an old soul and I suspect they are looking at that cake thinking, "When she isn't looking, let's make a DIVE FOR IT!"

I am relieved that Mr. Drifter is on the mend. They capture our hearts and treat them like a slipper or a shoe...they steal them forever!

LOVE TO YOU and thank you for visiting my post. Anita
