This swap will be an easy one and even if you are not an OBF member please join in if you like.

We know February is the month for lovers and represents Valentines day. Through out history we have heard of all the great love stories. To name a few:::
Romeo & Juliet
Cleopatra & Marc Anthony (Love so strong war was waged against them to break them up.
Bonnie & Clyde
John Alden & Priscilla Mullins (Romances in the earliest American Colonies)
Abigail & John Adams (Love affair during the Revolutionary War)
Annie Oakley & Frank Butler (Annie died in 1926 & Frank heartbroken died 18 days later)
Scarlett O Hara & Rhett Butler
Robin Hood & Maid Marian
King David & Bathsheba
Adam & Eve
Tarzan & Jane
And the list goes on.....
So what we will do is tell our own love story. Love is not only for the famous. How did you meet? Was it love at first sight or was it later? The best love story will get a
prize. We will also play BINGO so sign up and lets have some fun.

Also we will have partners and you are to make your partner a handmade valentine. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

Approx. 190 million valentines are sent each year in the U.S. When you include the valentine-exchange cards made in school activities the figure goes up to 1 billion, and teachers become the people receiving the most valentines.

It will be a secret to your partner until they receive their card. I will let you know by e-mail who your valentine will be.

If you have a dollar tree locally or a craft store the possibilities are endless as to what you can create. Pinterest is an internet site that can help as well.

One other item to include in your card is anything you choose....You can send a packet of seeds, flower bulbs, candy & etc.

We must mail before Valentines Day so your partner will get their valentine before the big day, let's say by the 9th. Sign ups will be until Feb. 2nd..

My love story:
I met my husband to be in May 1968. I actually did not like him that much at first. Not sure why but he was nice and paid special attention to me. My Sister was the one who set us up in a blind date. I had been on several blind dates but they were not that great. I was from NC and most of the boys I dated were from GA. Several of my friends and I thought it was neat dating boys we did not go to school with. There was always a riff between NC and Ga boys. The NC boys did not like the GA boys coming into their hometown let along dating girls from there and vice a versa. We tried to avoid the conflict so when Eddie picked me up we always rode back to Georgia on our dates. My first Cousin Brenda lived beside my family and she dated Eddie's best friend Billy. We double dated always and had fun times together. One day in particular Eddie's car tore up and he hitch-hiked from Clayton, Georgia all the way to Franklin, NC. When he arrived at my house I told him he was not allowed to be there with out Mom and Dad being home so he left and hitch-hiked all the way back home. On Christmas day December 1968 Eddie asked me to marry him and I was 17 years old. I told him my Mom would never sign for me and that I needed to finish school. He told me he was moving to Atlanta, Georgia and living with his Sister & Husband and when we got married that was where we were going to live. When I shared this with Mom she said we would see. I finished my Junior year in school and married Eddie on July 4th 1969. The deal was I was to live with Eddie that Summer but come back to Franklin and finish my Senior year when school started back. When the Summer was over Eddie decided he did not want me to do that so I actually went and got my GED in Atlanta. Sheila my beautiful little daughter was born in January 1971. Steve my beautiful little son was born in July 1975. We lived in Atlanta, Ga until the Summer of 1981. We moved back to my hometown that year. The kids had always visited the Mountains and loved it here and wanted to be with all their cousins. I found the job where I am presently working so I have been here 31 years. I hope to retire someday and hybridize some daylilies. Never met many plants that I do not like. We have two Grandchildren Brittney and Dawson. They live right beside us so am loving this. Eddie has always told them when you cross the white fence it is sanctuary...no spankings on this side. We thought for years Brittney would be our only grandchild as her Mom said no more. Dawson was a surprise and the greatest surprise we ever got. This July 4th will be mine and Eddie's 45th anniversary.

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Shirley, your story made me smile. The part about him hitchhiking all the way to your house, then being sent away, reminded me of a similar scene in that movie “Walk The Line”. It's about Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. Johnny did the same thing and June sent him on his way.

Welcome Margo, Michelle and Jayeanne.

Sheri-Loved the story about Mario. Sorry he is no longer with you. I can vouch for the love we have for our pets and the love they have for us. Thanks for sharing I can just see that little soft, creamy-colored ball of wrinkles (not your Husband) LOL I forgot about Johnny Cash in I Walk The Line walking to see June. Gosh I loved that movie, I have it somewhere and need to watch it again.

As in Sheri's story the love story does not have to be you and DH it can be your pet, friend, grandchild and etc. Have fun with it.

Wow, Shirley... looks like a great swap turn-out! I'm finding some really cute Valentine ideas online. I went to "Pinterest", as you suggested, and it's kind of addicting - looking at so many cool ideas.

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Sheri-Love the heart shaped tongue....too cute. Yes pinterest is addictive, I try not to click on there some days when busy. I have thought I was on there around 15-20 minutes and it ends up being 1-2 hours. My daughter and I have the pre-school class tomorrow at Church and she found the cutest idea with smores on pinterest. Love Pinterest......

hi ladies...I see I am late to the game, but that's okay, I probably could not have played this month anyway, I have more going on than one person needs and there's not enough days in the month. plus with this awful weather...don't get me started.

Shirley, I loved your love story. I too was so touched by his hitch hiking to and fro. now that is love. no wonder it's lasted. m ay more years of blessings!

sheri your story about your devoted marco reminded me of my dear, sweet hazel...gone, but never forgotten. what joy a dog brings to our life/heart. so glad to know you healed as well as possible and that special creature was there for you in your greatest hours.

looking forward to reading more about everyone. i'll have to work on mine, even know i'm not swapping!

stay warm, stay well

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I thought I would stop by and tell my not so romantic or exciting story of how I met my husband many years ago.

We both worked at a Hardees restaurant in Roseville, Mi. I was working there with my best friend Linda and my husband transferred from another Hardees as an assistant manager trainee. I have never been a very forward person so when I meet someone, I am quiet and seem a bit standoffish. That is why he first thought I was a b$%&h. (figure that word out. LOL) As we became friends, I began to think he had hots for my friend. One day in 1976, Adrian asked me out to go to the Detroit holiday parade at Thanksgiving time. I said yes but the next day he called to tell me he changed his mind. It wasn't a big deal because I wasn't sure if I had an interest in him. A couple days later, he called to say he had made a mistake and would I mind going to the parade with him. I said o.k. We went to that parade and then continued to date. Two months later, we decided we would like to get married in the future. We didn't want to freak our family out by getting an engagement ring so we decided to get "steady" rings. Does anyone remember those? You bought a nice ring and wore that as a sign that you were in a relationship. We chose cats eye stones on each of our rings. That let the family know we were serious. We were engaged December of 1977 and married on Friday the 13th, July 1979. Its been a great ride ever since including having five children who now range in age from 20-31 and we have a 4 month old grandson.

I hope everyone in the line of this new winter storm stays safe. We are due 8-10 inches overnight. It just started snowing about a half an hour ago. I am over this winter. Margo


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Margo-Great love story you and Adrian. And the children we have, what can I say. I do remember the steady rings.
Whew I don't like the snow word...I am so over this winter as well.

Maryanne-Please share your love story with us and also join in the BINGO game I am going to post. Are you guys expecting snow too?

Really sweet love story, Margo. :) Do you still have those "cats eye" rings? I remember that style of ring, too.

I sent you my Bingo list, Shirley. Fun! Thank you for doing that for us!

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I'm so sad I missed out on this swap. :o(
But I would love to participate in the Love Story and the
Valentine Bingo. Such CUTE ideas!

I have enjoyed reading the Love Stories posted so far. A good way to get to know some of you. :o)
And Sheri I do understand the love of a good dog! Marco ... you were loved back by Sheri!

My Love Story
My husband moved to MI and down the street from me when he was 10 and I was 11. We were too young to be interested in the opposite sex at that time. To me he was always the fat boy who lived next door to my best friend. Sorry for the terminology, but it was what I thought.

Then in the summer of his 14th year, he went on a crash diet and lost a BUNCH of weight. I began to sit up and take notice. My friend began 'going steady' with John's best friend. Those 3 all lived right next to each other, I lived 8 houses down. We all began to 'hang out' together.

John would not go on a date with me till he could drive ... he wouldn't let me drive us on a date. LOL
We have been together from that time on. But in college (we went to the same university) we decided we wanted to date others also. Somehow we managed to do that and stay together. I guess neither one of us found someone 'better.' Thank Goodness.

We married after college, had our first child 5 years after that and our second 2 years later. A girl and a boy.
We were very happy.
Sadly, as some of you know, we lost our son in 2010. He was 19. I've written this next Paragraph many times to get it right, not sad, but what love can be and what the power of love can do. .....
We had always loved each other and our children dearly, I didn't think I could love my husband more. But when you lose a child, you come close to losing yourself. John saved me, literally saved my life during those dark months/years. He has told me that my needing him that much, saved him. He needed someone to help and that was how he dealt with the tragedy. Our lovely daughter came home from school and stayed with us for a year and a half. I had to include her in this love story, she put her young life on hold to make sure her parents were ok.

We hope to retire in 5 years and tell our daughter we are going to follow her wherever she may end up after Law School. We plan on living close by to her and hopefully some Grandchildren. She loves to come up with some strange places she may live .... just to tease us. Would you move to Iceland? China? Iran? Alaska? Upper Peninsula of Michigan?

I'm so thankful I am married to my Bestfriend.
A cliché I know, but the Absolute Truth.

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Sweet Sharon I remember it all so well...you made me cry.
Our friendships on gardenweb will be forever. Thanks for sharing your love story not only with John but your beautiful children. What fun to follow your daughter wherever her life takes her. Good to know we will have a lawyer we know someday just in case. LOL

Don't forget to send your BINGO words...this means anyone and all.

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Thanks again Shirley! Happy day to all!

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I emailed my words to you Shirley. We had so much snow that we were under a level 2, meaning don't go out on the roads unless necessary. Our shop closes on a level 2. I wasn't scheduled to work but since the owner is gone and I am in charge, I had to make the decision. I am glad I didn't have to work since I had a bad, bad headache most of the day. A second dose of tylenol is starting to help. I had plans to start my card but that got put on the back burner. I will get it done in time as I have a plan.

I sure hope we don't continue with the level two until tomorrow. We can't make money if we are closed and this isn't a good retail month to begin with. I am also scheduled 10-6 so don't want to miss the hours.

Hope everyone is staying warm and dry and safe during this storm. Margo

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Annie, Margo and Sheri I received your list of BINGO words.

Hope everyone is working on their cards to ????????

Margo-The weather says we may get snow again tonight...it was beautiful this morning and as the day got later the temps dropped. Hope your shop stays open during this.

Mom's Birthday was today so after work I went to the nursing home to visit with her. She is so funny....She told others there her age was 58 and then sometimes she said 85. Lord bless them.

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Good morning! I will try and get this all typed up with one hand! Wish I had done my love story earlier! Did get my secret valentine done before my arm messed up and it's going in mail today. I hope whoever gets it, it is fine as my dgt. had to put it in the package for me. I have a deep vein thrombosis in my upper left arm in the axillary vein! Don't know where it came from or why, but now doing Lovenox injections and taking Coumadin as this is the second time. I
'm not suppose to use my arm for anything as good probability it can chunck off and go to my lungs! So I'm going to get my story in best as I can! One peck at a time! LOL!
I was married once before and had 2 children a boy and then 6 years later a girl. I divorced him when my girl was a baby. Just too young and too many problems. So I was raising my kids alone for 6 years, going to school and on my off time, I installed poultry equipment in new house's that were being built. I did the cabling and winching , etc. I was in some houses in Missouri doing the cabling and the watering crew came in to put up the waterers. I knew all these guys, but they had a new one with them. I thought, oh my he is handsome! Never said anything but hello to him the entire day and weekend. When we left that job,my stepfather said that was one of the guy's I knew brother. He had been in OK city and hadn't ever stayed around much. He usually did brick work and was just helping out for a few days. Well he stayed on my mind, but never thought anything else about it. One night I was studying and knock came on the door. I went over to it and there he stood, hat in hands, looking like a little boy about to get into trouble. I asked him how he find my house and what was he doing there. He said, your mom told me where it was and wanted to know if you'd go out to supper with me. This was done in very slow jerky voice, like he was scared to death! I said sure that would be great! He turned around and got in his truck and I went in and called my mom so excited that I had a date with him. She asked me when we were going and it dawned on me, I didi't know. He never said and neither did I! I thought that's the pits, I finally get a date and don't even know when! But a couple weeks later he showed up and took me and the kids to supper, then became a rountine of doing everything with the kids. We went to school carnival, skating, pizza places,go-kars, etc. After about 2 months of this, I asked him, did you just date me to see the kids or do you want to go out with just me! He said I thought you'd never ask! LOL! So next date was a grown up date with out kids. A month later we were together and never spent a minute apart after that! He raised my children as his own and provided nicely for me and spoiled me a lot until he died in 1999 at the age of 51. hHe was the love of my life and my soulmate! I am still single and probably always will be. I don't go out , I still miss him daily! We only had 17 of the most wonderful years of my life and almost didn't know when my first date was going to be!
I hope I didn't mess up too bad. Hard to type with one hand!
Hope you ladies all have a great day!
Shirley, I sent my bingo words to you!


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Melinda-Thanks for your wonderful love story. It takes a special person to love your children and you found that special man. You did an excellent job typing with one hand. Sorry to hear about your left arm and please take care of yourself. You two must have been so excited not to have set a specific date for your date.

I have received Christines and Melindas valentine words.

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Melinda, I was glued to your story. I loved how you described him! A wonderful story, with a sad/happy ending.
I say sad since you only had 17 years with the love of your life, but happy since you said, "17 of the most wonderful years of my life "

All of our stories touch my heart.

Shirley, I tried sending my Bingo words again this morning.
Hope you get them and hoping its not too late.

I mailed my secret Valentine this morning. Right on the deadline and I hope it gets there in time for V day.

More snow here last night. They keep saying 3 but we received about 6. We have more snow on the ground than I have seen in years. I realized this morning that there has been snow covering here since January 1st which is very unusual in the past several years. The temperatures are still too low for anything to melt.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Margo


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I posted on the Rate and Review forum for you Jayeanne! I love playing Bingo but not doing so good so far! But still have time to get there.
I did send my Valentine last week. Don't know if I said that or not!
Have a great Sunday everyone! I so wanted to go to church but can't use my arm to drive yet and thought I had a ride but they never called like they said. Makes me wonder about how Christian some people really are, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and hope they just forgot and nothing bad happened to them. But was very sad for me. I love going to church! Melinda


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Margo-Sorry to hear about all that snow. Weather channel says we are getting some in the next few days, I was sure hoping it would stay warm after the last one. THINK SPRING!!!!!!!!!!!

Melinda-I do hope your ride to Church resulted in them just forgetting. I swear I have to write myself notes all the time anymore. At our craft class last Tuesday we all got in a discussion about how we forget things and do crazy stuff. I laughed so hard at some of the stories. I was glad to know I am not the only one. One lady said she had left her purse in the shopping cart twice at the grocery store. Only missed it when she got home. I love going to Church as well and had to miss this morning. I had a few symptoms of vertigo. As the day has progressed it is not that bad now, sure hope it does not get worse this next week.

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Shirley, I do hope that the vertigo gets better! I have that quite often and it is a horrible feeling! Yes, I am hoping they just forgot myself. I will just not dwell on it and hope can drive myself by next weekend. I go for more lab tomorrow and see what they will change my Lovenox and Coumadin to.
Can't wait to see everyone else's cards! Please post pics when you get them! Melinda

One of Cupid's helpers said they had mailed their valentine and their secret partner should have received by now. Please post if you have received your valentine/with a picture if possible.

I have started some seeds and have them in the greenhouse. I want this winter to be over....I need to see green.

So excited I received a letter and was accepted for the Master Gardener's class starting this Friday. Is anyone in this group a Master Gardener?

Also some lovely cuttings .... I couldn't find a note or anything but that's me sometimes.....what cuttings are they?
And some wonderful seeds from my want list in a handmade envelope
Also a "Dream Legacy" daylily- somebody knows I love Daylilies :)

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Shirley!!! Thank you so much for the beautiful handmade Valentines, Blue King Siberian Iris bulb (I don't have anything like it!), treats and all the great seeds... Valentine Petunia, Split Personality Morning Glory, Dolly Parton Tomato, Amaranthus caudatus Red and Park's Pink Peony. It all arrived in today's mail. It was in a pretty Valentine box, too.

Where on earth did you find heart shaped marshmallows and mini tootsie roll pops?! I've never seen anything like those. Everything is so thoughtful. I love it all. Thank you!


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I'm sooo happy that you liked your package, Sue. :)

You made me LOL because those aren't cuttings, they're garden markers for your plants (or planters) The sharpie is for writing on the garden markers. I'm going to post a photo that I took, before I sent it. It was "pinterest" inspired.

I was thinking "Cuttings? Did I put cuttings in there?". Ha! Too funny!


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

Here is a photo of where I got the idea. I used plastic school folders to make the hearts, so they'd be waterproof, and my hot glue gun to attach them.

Sheri-Glad you liked your goodies. The heart shaped marshmallows came from the Dollar Tree. If you make the smores with the graham, marshmallows and chocolate enjoy!!! The mini Tootsie Rolls I found at Dollar General. Don't you just love pinterest? The card you sent is so cute, and also the garden markers. Love that Sue thought they were cuttings. (made me smile)

Went to the post office to mail my secret valentine out and what to my surprise did I receive when checking my mail??? A very cute valentine from canyonwood (Annie)!! The card had roses and pearl white beads on it. It was wrapped in tissue paper an tied with some sprig cuttings of what I think is rosemary. Inside was 4 pkgs of seed and another wrapped package had a dark chocolate bar in it. I will try to post a pic tomorrow.
Thank you so much Annie! I loved all of it!

The company I work for called and said no work today so watching it snow. Not sure how much will accumulate at least we still have power. DH set up the generator just in case. The only thing we don't have with a power outage is water. My DD built her home beside us and when they had their well drilled they hit a vein of water that would furnish 6-7 homes. We decided to hook our house onto their well and just water all my plants from our well. If it gets really dry we can water 24 hours a day. We also put a pump in our pond and water the same. My plants get plenty of water regardless. They really like the pond water because it has all the fish in it. I don't even have to buy fertilizer. LOL

Received a very cute card from Tammy today which her granddaughter helped her make. Tammy include a large almond/sea salt dark chocolate candy bar. My husband had his eye on it so I quickly stashed it away. She also sent wildflower seeds, orange pepper, lettuce, and moss rose seeds. These are going to be great in my garden this spring.

Thank you and Happy Valentines day. Margo

RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day. I haven't been very good about logging on this month. There has been a lot going on and Mother Nature keeps playing tricks on us: two winter storms that lingered for days then topped off by an earthquake on Friday evening. No kidding! Here in SC. No damage that I know of - just another weird event.
We are very thankful that our power didn't go out. The ice storm sure could have been a disaster and it was much worse one county over with 90% of that county losing their power.
I'm adding a picture of the more recent storm that included snow, ice, freezing rain, rain, and more snow. This is the railing on my front porch and you can kind of see the layers to it.
Hopefully in a few weeks my new granddaughter will be here and I can chime in with some great news!
Jeanne

Jayeanne


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I will guess roses and valentine. Margo


 o
RE: new: obf feb swap: love stories/valentines

I'm going to guess roses and hearts!
As most of you know, I have had a deep vein clot in my arm and now have small one in my left calf. I was in hospital until Thursday evening from Tuesday. So far no damage to my heart. But they want me to see my oncologist now and not wait for my yearly appt. in March. They think my pancreas, duodenum, and other places need to be checked to be sure all this chest pain and things I am having arent' coming from their. So my question is this, I was hosting in March, but have so many things going on right now, I would love to possibly switch months with someone else. I could still probably do it, but doubt if could concentrate on doing a good swap or be a good hostess right now. So if anyone would like to change a month with me, Please let me know! I am sorry, but feel like it's best for right now! Thanks for understanding and hopefully someone will be happy to trade months for me.

Thanks for your time and hope all have a wonderful evening! Melinda

Melinda, I'm looking forward to hosting the March swap. I need a pick me up after this long winter. Now I have to start thinking of what to do for it .... hummmmm.

Thank you all for having me win the love story. It was nice reading all of them and getting to know just a little more about you. Sorry I missed the voting ... ive been paying attention mostly to the BINGO CONTEST. LOL

And I'm still 2 words away on that one. I would think there has to be one or 2 who are only a word away from winning.

I so dislike this month ... I call it the F month, no, not the bad word, I just don't say its name. LOL And this year it is really dragging on, but with a few rays of light ..... like this group. :o)

Annie, congrats on winning the 2 words game. Roses and Doves ... who knew ... 2 such beautiful words!

We had a wonderful time this week-end. We love for everyone in our small immediate family going on our mini vacation with us. We took the tour on the Titanic and it was great. Makes me want to watch the movie again. Friday and Saturday night the ladies went to the movies and saw Endless Love and Monument Men. We shopped so much we had to go to the late late shows. Such fun we got back to the cabins at 12:30 each night. Funny but I'm still not tired from the lack of sleep I got.

Night all,

Shirley

Shirley, so glad you had a wonderful time. Hmmm, sounds like fun .... shopping and movies!

Hubby and I took the daughter and dog to the FROZEN cottage. Walked out on the cottage lake, then walked on Lake Huron (one of the Great Lakes). Ate a nice Warm meal and spent the night in a hotel. Our cottage is truly a cottage ... lol. No water, no heat in the winter. Then Sunday we walked a trail in a nearby park and Walked on the river that runs through the park. Lots of walking on frozen water about sums up our trip. LOL
Believe it or not, we had a good time.

If possible I would love to have the Tiny Padhye Lily.
Thank you,
Sharon

Sharon good choice on the Tiny Padhye lily it is one of my favorites. I ordered it last year and wanted more of them so I ordered it again this year. The cottage sounds like lots of fun....sometimes the simple things make lasting memories.
