What A Valentine!!!!

What Joy I had yesterday afternoon when the mailman brought me a lovely package in the mail.  When I saw the return address I was ecstatic because I knew my Valentine Box Swap had arrived! I was lucky to be paired with Linda Lou for 521 Lake Streets Valentine Box swap.  I frequently use by office's address for my mail because on the little peninsula I live on, mail delivery can be sketchy.  It's like the mail carrier decides she doesn't want to deliver to every house so she just stuffs all the mail into one box and that person spends their evening trying to get the mail to the right people.  Ahhh... the joys of living in the country!

Anyway!  I opened that box right there at work and my squeals of delight sent my office workers running into my office to see what the ruckus was all about.

Let me just say that Linda Lou totally outdid herself.  Oh My!  First there was this lovely box.
Look at that adorable ribbon flower....
and even before I opened the box I found wrapped in lovely heart tissue paper these treasures
The cutest Valentine clown ever
A new table and chairs for my doll house!
This tray with the cutest Peanuts fabric and Housewares fabric in it.
and then I opened the box!  Holy Cow!
 
Seeds, Flower stickers, heart buttons, a little cameo, vintage seals,
candy cups, ribbon, the cutest plastic clothes pin ever,
Lip gloss in a button shaped container, glitter, chipboard dress forms, millinery cherries, chocolate,
heart appliques, scissors brads,
Hearts cut of an old quilt
Of my goodness, look at this pattern with the hearts on the dress...
A Safeway stores needle book and the cutest little pen that you pin to yourself!
This little chenille skunk won my heart!
And this precious card with the little girl sewing is just perfect!
I am truly overwhelmed with the things she put into this swap.  How lucky can one girl get, right!
Thank you so much Linda Lou!!!!!  You have no idea how much this made my day!
 
And here is a peek at the box that I sent to her, though I won't show what's in it!
What a fun swap!
 
I plan on getting my pansy seeds planted this weekend and hopefully get my craft room cleaned.  It is a disaster area!  Hope everyone has a great weekend and stay warm!
 
Linda

Hi Linda....I am sooo glad that you liked your box I made for you. I had a ball putting it together. I tried to touch all your loves...sewing, collecting, your dollhouse and a wee bit of gardening. You were so fun to have for a swap partner. I hope to get my pix this morning and post about your box to me. I LOVE IT!!!
