Valentine Lovelies

I was spoiled this past week...spoiled by my Vintage Heart Swap partner Jen of J. Nichelle Holiday. With only knowing me from seeing my blog and a few short emails, she was able to conjure up a complete valentine loot of goodies that just screamed "me"!! Let me take you on a picture tour of the lovelies...

Opening up the box I found this sweet note written on the bottom of the lovely heart container box she revamped...
And this is the top lid of the box - isn't it just adorable!

A close-up of the vintage lovelies she adorned the box with...

And another view - I love all of the glitter she put on it too...so sparkly!

Aren't these vintage valentine's cards the best? I wish they made some like these now...

And, look at this ornament Jen made! So beautiful! She sells these in her etsy store here...

And, just because she knows that I collect bride and groom cake toppers or anything to do with brides and grooms, she included this adorable couple in my package as well - under the brides dress is a bell! They are just too cute for words!

Some vintage cards - and yes that is a See's candy box in the background - I will be enjoying those goodies soon!

Love the detail on the box lid...

And, she has included these beads and baubles so that I might use them in my creations - see what I mean - S*P*O*I*L*E*D*!

And a cute little vintage glass heart ornament...L*O*V*E*!!

This little girl is here to say i...love...you!

A recap of the valentine lovelies I received...

Thank you Jen!!! You have spoiled me and I am grateful for all my goodies! It has been great getting to know you through your emails and your blog and maybe you can come visit Chilliwack again! I enjoyed shopping for you too - it was hard not keeping the stuff for myself!! tee hee...

If you want to see what I gave to Jen, go here...

And a big thank you to Dolly of From My Cherry Heart for hosting this swap for the past three years. I look forward to being involved again next year! You have been such a gracious hostess with your swaps and I thank Y*O*U*!!
