Scottie Dogs (& aliens) for Valentines Day


It’s only one month until Valentines Day – and unlike Christmas, I plan to be organised.

I love scotties (as I may have mentioned once or twice!).  They are so cute, stylish, loveable and quintessentially vintage.  And black scotties go beautifully with red, and are perfect for valentines day.  Here are some great scottie valentines day ideas from Etsy, and my favourites:

Meanwhile in 1942 on this day the U.S. and Britain concluded the Arcadia Conference in Washington,  with Roosevelt and Churchill agreeing to establish a Combined Chiefs of Staff and to the make defeating Germany their first priority.   This meant that winning the war in Europe would come before winning the war in the Pacific.  Not great news for Australia – Darwin would be bombed in little over a months time. (If you want to go on a tour of Darwin for the 70th anniversary of the bombing, check out this tour).

Prime Minister Churchill and President Roosevelt seated at a meeting at the White House on June 25, 1942.

Have a great day,
