Happy Valentine's Day!

What a wonderful day it has been! It started out bright and early for us. Dave and I usually don't do much celebrating on this day. We did, however, start the morning out with cinnamon rolls & a cup of coffee. I think we had the best time on the drive home when we started pointing out all of the people walking to their cars with their Valentine presents. "Look, she got roses!" "Oh, she has balloons!" "Wow, look at that boquet!". Looks like there was love in the air today!

Our Arkansas Etsy Street Team, AREtsy, did a Valentine's Swap. It was hosted by Sally at Dogwood Lane. It has been really fun to see what everyone received as their Valentine's Day present. My secret Valentine was Cyndi Hansen, the Diva Schmiva herself, from Everything ARtsy. Cyndi made me the most incredible wall hanging and the cutest little heart magnet. When I say the wall hanging in incredible I'm not kidding! She put such a personal touch in it. The hankie on the top left corner was one of her Grandmothers. The appliques were also from her Grandmother. I am so touched that she would include these in a gift for me. I will cherish it! I wish I could get a good picture of it so you could read the sayings. The top one says "Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic." The bottom one, and I love this one, says "Some people bring happiness where ever they go. Some people bring happiness when they go." Here's a picture of it. Thanks Cyndi!!
