Hearts Desire

Hi Everyone
We received a letter in the mail yesterday
saying that the
electric company is turning off our power for
up to {10 hours} on Friday
they are doing some repairs to the power lines in our neighborhood

This means no power, which means no computer or television or.......
I am going to miss checking in on all of you

I am so excited to show you my Grandmother's
red velvet hat stand

Isn't it the most wonderful shade of romantic red?

I can remember as a little girl admiring this
at my Grandmothers house
touching the velvet with my fingers and
Loving the hat pins

When I was 16 my Grandmother gave me this
red velvet hat stand for

She knew it was my hearts desire

This red velvet hat stand
is one of my favorite valentines presents
I remember feeling like I had won the lottery
To me it is priceless
What is your hearts desire?
