CATCHING UP WITH SOME VALENTINES

 I've been busy creating some Valentine goodies for a few swap partners, two swap hostess and a little Valentine party with our new grand baby, Lil O.

Starting off with two paper mache hearts I purchased at Michael's, I mod podged vintage sheet music on the hearts then proceeded to cover with vintage goodness.  This one is called "pick a bouquet".



This one is called "thoughtfulness"
 If you follow my blog you know I do love a good swap.  I think all hostess's should be thanked as they deserve it for all the work they put into a swap.
 This is a tiny matchbox I created for a blog friend Amy.  Inside are three mini ATC's, these will be a surprise.
 Here is a Valentine hanging I received from Mercedes at All Things Pretty
These are silver heart tins, so sweet...
 A tin heart with a tiny tussie mussie, so darling.
 Some very vintage Valentines, I will cherish!!!  Thanks so much Mercedes.
 A matchbox I found in the mail from Amy at Ruby Moon Art

Thanks so much Amy...











Finishing up with my Valentine creations, gifts and party time, I made some "so yummy" Valentine Trash.
This recipe I found at Cooking with K
this is so easy to make.  Go to the link for the recipe.
The cups and boxes I found at Wal Mart, so cute.
This trash is so good...

Finally, this is our Valentine gift for our little grand baby.  A basket, a pink butterfly for her room, a fun book of course, some clothing from Baby Gap and this adorable chick hat I purchased from Lily Boo Boutique on Etsy.
Happy Valentine's Day to all.  I hope you are creating, receiving and preparing for a party...
Thanks for stopping by.
Michele
