Sweet Things from a Sweetheart

When hubs took my box to the Post Office today, look what he brought back home to me.

I love Valentine Swaps! Where cuteness and inspiration abound, and where Dear Friends are made!

The inside was packed with sweetness, including this precious card! I told Deb that I loved pink, red, and aqua. Look at how she cared for me!

When fun- lovin' Sandy invited us to join her VDay Swap, I quickly joined in! (Here is the link to the other swap partners on Sandy's blog)

Well, I was jumping up and down to have Deb from Garage Sale Gal as my swap partner! She is so sweet! I knew that it would be fun to make her a Valentine box! But, look at this Valentine box she made for me!

Just look at the goodies she sent me! There are zillions of tiny treasures!


P for Patti!

Something for the teacher!

A bluebird! Ohhhhhhhhhhh!

Thank you Sweet Friend! You have blessed me more than you can imagine. The sweetness and care in this box is a tremendous gift to me. Thank you!

We Slip, Slide, And Play!

I've been busy teaching my kinder kids. We are preparing for our Class science project for the school science fair.

We are learning about penguins. Emperor penguins to be exact!

I thought you might enjoy these darling penguin paintings we did last week.

A special thank you to Mrs. Patterson who brought in the potatoes and led the class in this activity. It was FUN!

Valentines fun to come soon!

Little Pots of Paint

I am forgetful when it comes to blogging. I get so excited about my project I forget to take a "before" picture.

But, anyhoo, I have been having fun painting several pieces of do-dad wood things.

My inspiration began when I found these little pots of paint at the Ace Hardware for $1 each. Look at the cute names of the paints! Cowgirl. Peppermint Pony. Bird's Eye Maple. But, my favorite is Chicken Broth!

I had this set of very petite trays and had fun painting each one a different color.

Wanna come over for a little tea party? I'd love to have you!

Can you just see a milk glass luncheon set and tiny napkin!

Have a wonderful week!


Blessings to you and to yours!
