Vintage Valentine Swap Show~N~Tell


I showed some of this already, because I got sooooo excited about this swap.  I feel sooooo blessed to have made a great new friend!!  Thanks to Dolly, at "From My Cherry Heart" for hosting this once again for us!  You're awesome!!

So, on with the show...
Karen, from Some Days Are Diamonds, was my partner for this swap.  And she was a diamond for sure!!  We emailed each other and snooped around each other's blog...hee hee but I kept blowing my cover, because I found so many posts that I wanted to comment on!  hee hee
My package arrived from Karen before the deadline.  It came on a day that I was home from work, feeling horrible from my wisdom teeth fiasco!  It couldn't have shown up on a better day...it was the PERFECT medicine!!  So, let's take a look at my goodies from Karen.  This sweet heart covered box with wonderful heart ribbon was what I saw inside the box.  I could hardly wait to get it opened, but I composed myself long enough to snap this pic...


OMGOSH!  So much to take in...
Look at those sweet little love birdies on this tea towel!

And LOOK at this beautiful L*O*V*E that Karen made for me.   
There's that sweet cupid ready to shoot some arrows!

Now, get ready to squeal like I did.  This little guy is toooooo darn cute!

IT'S A HEDGEHOG.  IS THAT NOT ADORABLE!!!!!

Look at that precious little face!
And did you spot her little heart necklace?  SWEET!
And look at this most precious birdhouse!  And the shingles on the roof are.....

~~~Wait for it~~~

PINK AND RED HEARTS!

Take a look at the back.  There are sweet little details all around this little house!!!

MORE yummy goodies!   Wonderful ribbon and lace with sweet little hearts will be welcomed in my studio, for sure! 
I told ya that Karen did some snooping around my blog.  lol  She found out that I adore red handled kitchen gadgets and cookies cutters.  I literally squealed with delight when I saw these.  I quickly found a home for them here...
These red handled cuties joined more cookie cutters here atop my vintage kitchen scales.

And the red handled gadgets join other gadgets, rolling pins, and advertising tins here.
Aren't those the cutest felt hearts she put on them to make them more festive!
The cone had yummy chocolates and mints inside.
There are those adorable little love birdies again!
And Valentines isn't complete until you have those wonderful conversation hearts!

OH KAREN, I LOVE IT ALL!!!!!  And I enjoyed meeting you and making a wonderful new friend!  I feel soooo blessed!  Thanks again to Dolly!

Here are the things that I sent for Karen...
I was so hoping this vintage cameo heart vase would make it all in one piece and it did!  Whew!

I fell in love with this little plate.  Little did I know that Karen was married in 1980!  Wow!  That was fate!
I must have a valentine card for my partner on Valentine's Day.  I found this sweet little vintage card.  I love the cameo on it.  It came with a precious vintage hanky.
Buttons, Bits, and Baubles are a must!
A handmade Valentine by me for my new friend, Karen.
And a girl can never have too many embellishments.  
I am so glad Karen loved her goodies.
I sure LOVED mine!
