Valentine's Day Goodies

 Remember how fun it was to get Valentine's when you were in grade school?  You'd make some sort of a box or bag covered in construction paper hearts.  Then you'd either pick out a box of Valentine's to fill out or make your own.  On Valentine's Day, you would put your Valentine's in everyone's box and open them up.  Even though I am all grown up, I still love getting Valentine's from my friends!  I joined a swap at 521 Lake Street and it was so much fun.  My swap partner was Becky at The Capricious Crafter.  Below is what I sent to her.  Click on her blog name to see all the goodies I sent.  
(I had to borrow her picture since I forgot to take one...thanks Becky!)
 And here is what she sent me.  I love it all so much!  She made everything so cute and sweet.  All those extra touches were so special to me.
 Every bag had so many fun things and I can't wait to use them in my crafting.  The vintage images are adorable!
 I just love this box.  I have it proudly displayed on my Valentine mantle.  It had chocolates in it (but I already enjoyed them) and a beautiful chandelier crystal.  Do you see those sweet strawberry buttons?  I love strawberries and can't wait to find a fun way to use them!
 She really created some cute tags and cards for me.  Love her style!
 My sweet friend Donna at My Shabby Chateau sent me this pretty little card too.  It has so many of the things I love: sheet music, glitter, red  seam binding and an adorable vintage angel.  Thank you so much for thinking of me Donna-I love it!
 Do you know Miss Jenny from Jenny's Heart?  You should get to know her if you don't.  She is the sweetest friend!  Her New Year's Resolution was to send more letters to those who are dear to her.  I am one of those lucky few who gets a letter each month.  Don't you just love this beautiful card she sent me?  It is the perfect image to set inside my cloche.  Thank you dear Jenny for thinking of me!
 Getting Valentine's as an adult is even better!  Thank you sweet friends!

We got some crazy snow here this past weekend.  It snowed Thursday through Saturday and I loved it.  I had a snow day on Friday so I got a much needed 3 day weekend.  The snow was so beautiful as it fell to the ground.  As long as I don't have to drive in it, it can keep on snowing!  Look at these icicles hanging off of our roof...watch out for those nasty things!
 We haven't gotten this much snow since I was just a little kid.  The bushes around our mail box are buried deep.  I would say we have about 2 feet or more in our front yard.  And since the sun doesn't hit the front yard, it will be there for a long while!  It isn't supposed to snow again for awhile, so it looks like I will have to go to work tomorrow, darn!
I did something to my back today and can tell a trip to the chiropractor is in order.  This does not make me happy at all.  Hope you all had a great weekend and an even better week!

I'm so sorry about your back Trisha. I hope it heals up real fast. It can be such a hard thing to deal with.
I loved this swap!!! I also love the cards that Donna and Jenny sent you! How thoughtful of them.
I think it's crazy that you guys are actually getting more snow than we are. All the storms but this last two have completely gone around us. Thankfully it is snowing today though. Stay safe on the roads my dear friend.
hugs...
