VALENTINE GIFT







I went to get the mail on Wed. and there was a parcel in the box. I hadn't ordered anything so was surprised. It was from Pam Kellogg of Kitty and Me and was just one of those nice things that we bloggers do for each other at times. When I opened it up it was one of her valentine pretties.
She and her Mom both do such beautiful work. This one is a metal heart painted in a pink/gold color and in front is a cherub face with glittered wings and a pink heart and little flowers in front. There are numerous embellishing threads hanging from it. All together enchanting.

Thank you again Pam - unexpected gifts are so special.
I have her hanging from a bottle on the shelves I put up above my computer desk. I took down a mirror that was there and put 3 shelves up this year so that I can display all the nice little things that make me happy plus I keep pens, dyes, bttons, etc. in glass containers up there also.

It makes me smile to look at all this stuff even though lately I have done more looking then using.

I must also comment for my son David that I did receive your valentine card and it was a surprise because of you going on vacation. His wife was working in London the past week so he went over to join her and they are now on a week's vacation. He is a sweet guy and never forgets.

It is a such a fun shelf. It does bring joy to see these items close. I am reading "distant hours by Kate Morton. Did you read it yet?
