Valentine Swap & Vintage Tablecloth

I joined in the Valentine Swap hosted by Viv of
Such a fun swap!  We were to create some type of Valentine ornament,
make a Valentine card, & throw in some fun goodies for our partner.
Let me start with a BIG thanks to Viv for organizing and
hosting this swap for us!  Love her & her blog!

I was paired with Deb from Garage Sale Gal.
Deb is a blogging friend and we have been swap
partners before, so I knew I was in for a treat!

First, I can't tell you how much I LOVE this sweet spoolie.
He is the cutest little guy and she made him so special! 
 Deb sent me a huge package filled with sweetness!

It has been gray & rainy here for days, so I apologize for the poor photos. 
Can you believe how she spoiled me?  SO much wonderful stuff for crafting.
A lovely crochet doily, pretty guest towel, sweet hearts & flowers
towel, and a Moda Valentine hankie card.  Be still my heart!  
Anyone reading this knows how much I love linens. 

 Valentines, cookie cutter, candy......  

 Here is the adorable Valentine card, spoolie and tag she made, just for me.

THANKS so much to Deb, for such a creative and generous swap package!
Bloggers are the BEST!
& THANKS to Vivian, our  fab hostess, who
is welcoming a new grandbaby-pie today!

Being in the Valentine spirit, I finally cleaned off my dining table so
I could display another vintage tablecloth. 
This gorgeous tablecloth is definitely a favorite.  So colorful and vibrant.
  Made by California Hand Prints, also known as CHP. 
The pattern is named Moon Flower.  Finished dressing up the table
using a couple pairs of  Fenton candleholders, and a center
 bowl by Westmoreland Glass. 

The SUN actually peeked in when I took this photo.  Unfortunately, it was
only around for a few minutes, but I'll take what we can get! 

Here is a close up of the flowers for you.
 Hope you are planning some time for fun & play this weekend.
I know I am.  I'm still limping around, but my knee is slowly getting
 better.  It sure is a slooow and looong process. 

See those Valentine cards and tags in the header?  Gives you an
idea how much time I spend sitting.  Ha!
Have a fun & cozy weekend friends!
