Happy Valentine's Day, 2011!

Happy Valentine's Day to You! It is sunny and warm outside and I am happy about that! (but oh boy, the wind is fierce!)

I gave this little vintage donkey Valentine's to Dillon this morning (along with the heart i made for him). He may be 17, but never to old to get a vintage stuffed animal (well, in my opinion anyway!) Dillon is on winter break and is headed to Boston for a few days with his girlfriend and family. I will miss him!

these are the valentine's that i made for the blog swap i hosted. i will be opening all the goodies i got in the mail later today.

this past weekend, I went to my friend, Jane's house and we made the most amazing dolls. We are both trying to finish them up so that we can do a dual posting on them on wed. or thurs. so stay tuned..................

oh, geez, i almost forgot! I picked a winner for my blog giveaway (the old fashion way, but putting all the names in a hat!) and drew out Stefanie from Rose Petal and Rust. Congratulations to Stefanie and thanks to everyone for entering.

**I just opened my Valentine's, that was so fun. A couple of you spoiled me and sent awesome goodie boxes (tammie!). Thank you everyone who swapped, I loved all my handmade Valentine's! We will have to do it again next year.**


  1. oh, are you serious!!!! hooray for me!!! thank you sooooo very much, perfect gift for today!!!!

  2. Ya know I tried the other day to send you and e-mail telling you thank you and I love love the heart! I actually tried twice and my computer wouldn't let me, it's sick! But thank you again, I hope you enjoy yours as well! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

  3. The darling vintage donkey with adorable little heart is just precious! What a sweet treat for your grown boy. I think you're right... we always loved stuffed toys! Hope you're having a great day.

  4. No, I don't think your boy is too old for getting valentines. My 16-year-old got a lunchbox with a sandwich cut in a heart shape, heart-shaped cupcakes, goldfish in a valentine's goodie bag, and about 20 Reese's cups he could share with his friends. And a constuction paper heart from his mommy. The fun of it is imagining him opening the lunchbox in front of his friends and saying, omigod. His friends know me, and I think they'll all be jealous.

    Hope you had a nice day and enjoyed opening your valentine swap box.
