Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone!

I was delighted when this lovely creation of Cathy Jackson of Hazelruthe's fame, arrived in my mailbox the other day. This is a Valentine's Gift from her to me, and I love it! Thank you so much Cathy, for this wonderful paper shoe that is so beautifully embellished in ribbon and glitter and a beautiful pearl. And yum to all of those delicious chocolates that filled the shoe! The sweet paper heart Valentine just tops it!

You may want to observe the innovative way in which she shipped it. See the red and white plastic box. She mailed it in that! It is one of those plastic containers that come in a bunch at the grocery store. They are throw aways, but each has a fairly long lifetime. This one certainly has traveled well.




Another friend of mine by name of Barbara Meisner, is a dear artist and see the wonderful bookmark she created for me! What a darling Valentine Day gift. I treasure Barbara's artwork because it is all original and perfectly from the heart. Thank you again, dear Barbara!




I so hope that all of you are having a great Valentine's Day too!
