Valentines

The loveliest day of the year has arrived.
loveliest: having beauty that appeals to the emotions as well as to the eye

I participated in Cathy's Amour Valentine Swap and my partner was Janet, of Janet's Creative Pillows
Score! Agree?
She also sent a lot of other goodies; such as chocolates, candy, rose candles, and gorgeous paper flowers, but I was totally smitten with this pillow. It had me at the gorgeous bridal lace, or was it the tulle, or the roses? Anyway, I was smitten.  

This is the Valentine box I sent Janet, as well as cupcake supplies, and an array of hearts. 

I spent the afternoon making Valentine cookies with three teenage girls. 

Wishing you a great Valentines Day!  

Blessings, Ele
