Dolly's Valentine Swap

I received a package from my swap partner from Dolly's Valentine Swap. When I opened the package I thought it was full of those little candy hearts with sayings until I realized it was the paper wrapping. How cute is this?!?!

Inside was this little heart shape rose box filled with goodies.

Ephemera, note pad, valentine nail file, a valentine tea towel (which I am in need of badly!) and a sachet.

Then a box of chocolates.........squeeeeeeeeal!!! I loooooove chocolate......

This darling little heart shaped roses wreath. I adore this. It is going in a place of honor in my romantic cottage, chicks. Maybe my office or crafting room or maybe even my kitchen so I can see it every time I cook. But it'll definitely be hung where I can see it every single day.

And lastly, this little demitasse. I think it'll allow me to have more cups of hot chocolate. :-)

I have been truly blessed by Deb.


  1. Oh what a box of treasures---lots of wonderful things to celebrate Valentines day--or everyday, right? It's about LOVE and that sure is a everyday thing.

  2. Connie what lovely gifts. I miss the swaps we used to have with our MSN craft group, but haven't decided to join any in blogland yet. I need to start crafting again. That little wreath is so pretty and dainty looking.
    Oh I want a new grandbaby---what cute pictures and love the sayings to go with them. Hope you have a great day. Hugs, Pat
