So Many Valentines!

Prompted by a suggestion on Elizabeth's blog, Creative Breathing, I decided to trade Valentine's with a few gals in blogland.  I shared two of the Valentines last week and I thought I would share a few more.

I'm sure the crocheted hearts give this one away, but this was the heart send to me from Heather at Vintage Grey!  A felt heart, mini crocheted hearts, crocheted coasters and a Valentine with a crocheted trim! Too cute!

I also traded Valentine's with Meri who blogs at ImagiMeri....she really is too amazing!

Meri sent an email saying she was doing something a little different with her Valentine...well, she was right and it's beautiful!  I think she used decoupage and then added a starched piece of lace...

And the colors!

And the back is just as lovely!

Meri also sent me some vintage Valentines....I don't think I'll ever have enough of them! And the best thing about them is they are soooo easy to store!

I also received a surprise in the mail from Kim who blogs at Musings by Kim..... one of her shadow boxes!

Don't you just love the ice skaters?  If you have visited Kim's blog in the last couple of weeks, you've seen the ice skating rink her husband built in their backyard! 

And how sweet is the back??

Stay tuned, I have a few more to share tomorrow!!

Aren't blogpals the best????
