I keep looking at shanks at the grocery but needed a recipe. This one will be perfect. I enjoyed the photos of you and your valentine!


Happy Anniversary, Susan!

What sweet photos you've shared of yourself as a child and your wedding day!

My husband loves Osso Bucco or manicotti or anything pasta..lol I will probably make manicotti for valentine's Day dinner and a small dessert -- somehting chocolate.

It is nice to change things up now and then. Where there is not room to have everything out, rotating is the only way.

Happy Anniversary to you both. Love the recipe and the collections. Planning to do a filet mig. and shrimp with salad and perhaps and apple pie for the apple of my eye.

Happy belated anniversary to you and daddy!! It was yesterday, right? Love you both so much.
That wedding photo is absolutely perfect, I love it!
The Bennington pottery looks fantastic on display, too.
Miss you, love you,


Sooo cute, looking back 35 years...love the vintage valentines, too! Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Valentine Saturday!! ~Lorraine ♥♥♥


This is just great -- love the vintage photos AND valentines! Such love! I think Rick will cook for me on Tuesday; I'll make heart cookies and his Valentine book. It will be lovely!


I always change things up too. I'm blessed to have enough stuff and places to put it! Amazingly playing with my goodies always cheers me up. I'm not sure what I'm cooking, but Da Hubs is taking me for dinner and a comedy show with friends. So I really need to think of a good one.

Happy PS St Valentines and anniversary

Thanks for stopping by. I love to cook a special meal for the special man. I have a few pieces of hammered aluminum that I bring out from time to time.

Happy Anniversary and Happy Valentine's Day!



Love your story! Hope you have a happy anniversary and a happy Valentines Day. Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti


low key all the way. plus lots of candy.


That must be so enjoyable having your anniversary on Valentines day!!! Wonderful wedding picture. I loved exchanging valentines day in school and crafting that special box for them.


HPS! And I must say you are one lucky lady..35 years! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!


yummy, lamb shanks! Happy Valentine's Day <3


Happy Anniversary and Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
What a beautiful share. I love the photos. Your school photo is priceless, as is your wedding photo. Just priceless.

I too, remember those Valentines. I loved the ones with brushed velvet on them. They were so soft and pretty. I can remember running my hands over and over the velvety substance. Thank you for the memory.

Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry


Susan, Happy Anniversary and Happy Valentine's Day to you and your sweetheart. I've always loved this holiday. Being an elementary teacher for so many years, I've certainly had my share of those cute little valentines through the years. It always made me smile as I watched young children eagerly open a valentine, read those preprinted words as if they were written specifically for them. Then they would rush over to the one who had given them the valentine. It was so much fun to see these little ones going back and forth to each other excitedly sharing about the messages. Love and friendship ~ that's what this holiday is all about for me. ~ Sarah


Oh what a sweet story. Happy Anniversary. Your food looks amazing and I love all your Valentine pictures. xo Nancy

That's so sweet!!

I'd never heard of hammered aluminum so I had to check that out -- very neat. I love vintage and antique dishes. They just seem so homey.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! :-)


Lovely how you dress your hutch, wonderful idea I may take. I make all my familys favorites on VD too. Happy Pink Saturday! ~Diane (I am #16)

What a very sweet share, thank you. I love the pottery, but I can understand your love of the aluminum. My hubby hasn't bought me a hutch yet. We go antiquing and junking looking for that right piece (I've found several) but so far none have tickled his interest. I think it's because he knows I want to get a china set and he's seen the price of the one I really love :)

Have a Happy Valentine's Day...HPS

Hugs, LisaKay


Definitely a fun time when growing up. We had to make most of our valentines. No money extra for that.


Wonderful memories!
Happy Pink Valentines Susan.
Have a nice week ahead.

Such great memories. Why don't you link your post to Seasonal Sundays?

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day, Susan. And, Happy Anniversary, too.♥

Your lamb shanks look and sound delicious. This is a dinner which is enjoyed at our home, too.

Love your collections. I have a weakness for hammered aluminum, and your collection is fabulous.
