Lovely Treasures from a Lovely Friend

I received a box from heaven the other day. It was the swap package from my "Vintage Valentine Swap" partner Joyce. I have never met Joyce in person, yet she feels like a dear old friend whom I've known forever! This is really the best part of blogging and swapping, isn't it? Whatever did we do before blogging and swapping, I wonder? Perhaps something ghastly like housecleaning... anyway I've digressed.

Look at the treasures I received! I love each and every little thing, every bit of lace and ribbon, every paper treasure, each beautiful Valentine, Godiva truffles!, fantastic stamps and accessories for crafting, the lovliest little vintage bottle filled with pearls and topped with mininery flowers, and a handmade garland which I cherish :) There are so many little personal notes and tags and extras that I haven't mentioned here, but they are imprinted on my heart for always. (AND I have a little side story about one of these items that I will share with you another day!)

Thank you, treasured friend!

WOW...what wonderful treasures from your fabulous partner! Do I see what I think I see in there? It looks like my little shredder can come out of hiding.

I don't know how I missed this post but you've made me blush! Remember you said "Be careful what you wish for"...I'm thrilled that we were partners in this swap! It was like swapping with an old and beloved friend! It will probably be 100 more swaps before we're paired again but I will always treasure the lovely things you sent and said! Big Valentine's hugs for you Linda!
