some valentine pretties

I have so much I've been wanting to post lately but after I thought we were finally done with viruses, strep throats, fevers, etc, etc...I think round two has begun. My youngest had that lovely stomach bug this week and right now I am not feeling to hot myself! But onto Valentines Day and some pretty pictures from..."around the house". I am starting to realize that I use that phrase a lot in my posts!This picture below doesn't show the basket to well but it's an old champagne basket from France. Has lots of neat french stenciling on the inside and out. I made this little heart for myself using some goodies from one of Julie's sweet kits.


I LOVE this milagro so, so much! I was lucky enough to get it from this super talented girlie. The picture does not do it justice! It is so sparkly and yummy...I will never put it away!And last but not least...I received a comment on my last post from Julie. She liked my matchboxes, which by the way, thanks so much for all of your nice comments on them. I have had a few requests asking if I was going to be selling them in my shop. I had so much fun making them, that I think I just might and will let you know when I do. But back to Julie...We decided to have a little swap and this is what she made for me...


...some magnets and this great little journal. Her blog is here...check it out and also check out her Etsy shop. She not only sweet but also so talented! My favorite combination!

Well, time to go. I have some cupcakes that are patiently waiting to be iced and decorated for school parties tomorrow!
