For the Love of Dogs!

 

 

Anyone who knows me knows that I adore dogs and horses . . . and all animal's really.  It's unfortunate that our back yard is too small to have a horse.  But it is plenty big enough for Seamus, our handsome rescue dog, to patrol against the pesky squirrel and those sunbathing lizards who have the audacity to enter the yard.  And Seamus will sometimes run under the bid feeder just to see the birds explode up into the sky.  All done with a huge grin on his face!

The history of Valentine’s Day contains remnants of both Christian and ancient Roman traditions.  The patron saint himself is shrouded in mystery.  Who is this mysterious Valentine?  Where did traditions associated with Valentine’s Day come from?  Being of inquiring mind, I did some research and decided to share my findings, along with a whole host of artisan handmade items, each one a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for a loved one:
