Happy Valentine's Day!

Laurie over at Buttons and Lace organized a Valentine's Day swap. I was so busy getting my gifts ready to mail and also getting ready for retreat, that I forgot that I had something coming for me!

Laurie from Fun With This and That sent me this wonderful package. The first thing I saw when I opened it was the beautiful card. She must know how I love quilts!

She made this darling decoration to attach to the package. Such a clever lady!

I can't believe all the goodies that were wrapped up! Candy, felt heart pin cushions that I'll add to my collection, a stained glass necklace that I have hanging in my sewing room window to catch the sun rays, a sparkly battery operated tea candle.

See the little charm on the right? The right side is a little picture of valentine heart candies. When I turned it over I just gasped! It is a little piece of vintage paper with a train schedule on it. Did she know I LOVE TRAINS!!!!?!!!!

The beautiful heart in the middle now has a special home in a basket of vintage plates I have in my bedroom. I'll take a picture of it next week when I get home.

Thank you Laura for all the care you took in putting together such a lovely gift. Thank you Laurie for organizing such a fun swap!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone out there.
Go hug someone you love!!!
