A Valentine Giveaway


I've always loved Valentine's Day.
Not in a romantic dozen red roses and diamond earrings way,
but in a decorated shoebox, handing out little handmade cards, childlike kind of way.
The joy of something little ~ handmade and heartfelt.

In that frame of mind, I would love to pay it forward and share this little Winding Vine Designs handmade heart sewing box and antique brass skeleton key. What good is a heart without a key to it :) I might just include a few other goodies too while I am at it...
I love the variety of fabrics in this old piece of crazy quilt and the wonderful embroidery, too.
The inside is lined with a vintage velvet.

 
As always, this giveaway is open to everyone. You can either leave a comment on this post or send me an email at pgagliardi9@hotmail.com with "Valentine Giveaway" in the subject line so I can keep track.
To reward my followers, you will have an additional entry if you are a follower. Just note it in your comment.
And to earn a third entry, sign up for the TDIPT Mercantile newsletter and also note it in your comment or email. You can sign up for the newsletter here. The charity event starting over at TDIPT Mercantile tomorrow night is going to be fun!
 
 
So in your comment or email, please tell me ~ what do you like to eat on Valentine's Day? I remember the first year we were married I made a heart shaped meatloaf for dinner :) Maybe I will do that again this year....
I will pick a winner on Valentine's Day. Good luck to each of you!
 
"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."
         ~Ephesians 4:2
 
Blessings, Patti

I like the same kind of Valentines that you do - low key - simple - sweet. We usually go out to eat on that day, so the menu changes according to what restaurant we're at. I'm a follower and LOVE this cute little fabric covered heart box you made!

Jean Bee said...

Very nice! I would like to have that in my bedroom!
Thought of you last week as I was in the "2nd Story" in SG for five days. Jeanne mentioned us in her blog as we were the "sewers" who were snowed in upstairs. It was very quiet and kind of strange as the entire town was shut down all day! Got lots done though! Thank goodness the electricity didn't go out!

What a precious box ~ absolutely lovely. Please add me to the mix. I thought I was a follower of yours since you're in my Google Reader, but I discovered I hadn't actually "followed" you so I've corrected that. And I definitely get the TDIPT Mercantile newsletter ~ love to shop there!

As for Valentines? Chocolate fondue is definitely something we've enjoyed on Valentine's Day...pound cake and strawberries dipped in white & milk chocolate ~ mmmm!

Lisa Schindler said...

Hi Patti, homemade chocolate cake is our tradition on Valentine's Day; this year I made it early because of Lent starting. I enjoy following your blog and seeing all your lovely finishes.
