What a weekend! I feel like I was running around the entire time. I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day. Mine was fun. Tim and I never really do anything spectacular on the February 14th, our anniversary is right around the corner on February 27th so we always left the celebrating for later. We do always have Valentines Breakfast. As the kids were growing up I realized quite quickly that you can never guarantee everyone would be home in the evening for dinner, but I did know that my family loves breakfast and no matter if it was a school morning or not, they would always gather around the table for a warm meal. The traditional Valentines Breakfast consists of heart shaped pancakes sprinkled with powdered sugar, strawberries and whip cream. I decorate the tables with cupids, hearts, red and white linens and of course a banner declaring "Happy Valentines Day". Each person has a small basket which I fill with a few pieces of their favorite candy and a small gift. My family loves Valentines Breakfast. So, I promised to show you the small gift I made my husband this year and as promised it was very inexpensive yet fun. Anyone who knows me knows I love glitter! One of my favorite rides at Disneyland is "It's a small World" just because of all the glitter. As I was rummaging through garage sales the other day I noticed all those unloved trophies people literally cannot sell and are forced to give away. You know the ones, your kids probably have a closet full. I spied a couple of older trophies in a pile,back when they used to make them with a real marble base. There was one short one and one tall one. I bought them both for $2. I brought them home and took them apart. I used the angel and the base from one trophy and the pedestal from the other. Most trophies these days are interchangeable. So you can configure them any way you like. I got out my German glass glitter and got to work. Lots of glue and glitter transformed an old dance trophy into "The Worlds Best Valentine" trophy presented to none other than my hubby Tim. He loved it and we will now display it in the bookcase of his office. The whole thing with glitter cost about $5 to make. Use your imagination and you could make one of these for almost any occasion. Next time you are at a thrift store check out the trophies you just may find your next Valentines gift.
