valentines day goodness - a bit late

i was so lucky to take part in this fantastic adventure hosted by amanda. the first annual valentines swap left me with a rather large smile. you see my valentine was amanda herself and she sent me a fistful of felt hearts, a new handkerchief (which has me convinced that tissues are no longer a part of my life), some hand made lavender sachets, a bird whistle (which took me forever to figure out, in fact it only happened once amanda gave me step by step instructions), and finally a bag of peanut m&m's (how she knew these were my favorite candies ever, i am not sure).

needless to say i cannot wait until next year.


  1. It's never too late for Valentine's day goodness. And Amanda is the best. I can't wait for next year.

  2. I'm glad you like the handkerchief, C.--it was my first foray into embroidery. I think I'll get busy on some of mine before long.

    I want to swap every day.

  3. i want to swap every day too! maybe we could make this happen?
