New uses for embroidery hoops

Now that I've finished up my embroidered tea towels for a certain someone, I have a couple to spare.  Looking around the web, I've compiled a few great ideas to re-purpose them around the house.

Frame some artwork:

Valentines Pinterest Roundup

Everything is flooded with pink and red right now.  Typically I do not like this time of year, so much pressure to buy things, eat candy and chocolate, go out.  Blech.  John and I have decided to do aged DeBragga steaks.  Kansas City strip, here we come!  We also ordered some aged hamburger meat, with we have enjoyed twice so far with very juicy results.  Once you eat aged beef, there is no going back, so be warned.

But now for some hopelessly girly and flowery images from the latest web roundup.

I cannot wait to buy all the discounted flowers at the grocery stores post Vday.  Because that's how I roll.
