A Pink Saturday and a Valentine Swap

In celebration of Pink Saturday, I am sharing with you my Vintage Valentine Swap that I received from Jessica at She was my partner this year and I just received the most wonderful package of delightful treasures. I believe she must have spent many hours fashioning this gift for me. All of it came wrapped in pink be-ribboned boxes. Carefully wrapped and presented in a wonderful box.

This is the most wonderful thing I have ever seen. it is a handmade photo album she made from vintage papers, trimmed in lace and posies. The pearl paperclip held our wedding photo in place.

Inside are two handmade tags and places to display more of my special pictures.

Two vintage sheer lace hankies !
Two delightful books to read, including a vintage cookbook!

A wonderful Valentine card with a silver heart!

Vintage postcards tied up in pink.
Candles and chocolates in a vintage tin.
And a glorious assortment of lace, ribbons, vintage buttons and charms, all tied up with ribbons and vintage papers. Too pretty to open!

How lucky I was to have such a dear partner! I love it all!

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday! Head over to visit all of the wonderful pink posts hosted by Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound.

Hugs and have a wonderful week,




What a wonderful swap partner, she really outdid herself with all of the goodies!!!! Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting me today! I LOVE YOUR BLOG! This swap was amazing.

About the book The Shack, I can tell you that at times, yes, the book is a downer. It does have a positive message that redeems the book but at times this book is deep.
