Valentine's Day

design in progress by Nan Lewis of Threadwork Primitives

Wishing you a Happy Valentines Day!

Several of you so kindly asked for me to show you my mantle each month.
Do you follow Mugwump Woolies blog? Well, Robyn has a beautiful, inspiring blog where she does an exquisite post each month of her kitchen window. You can see her February window here. My decorating is nowhere near her monthly loveliness, but I will share my humble fireplace nevertheless :)

The three framed valentines are by Lana Manis of Honeysuckle Lane as is the sweet paper flower on the right.

The hearts on my foot warmer and primitive antique carved box are right in theme. 

My tiny antique document boxes are accented for the season with...

Two incredible papercuttings in antique frames by Beth Twist of Heartstring Samplery.
This picture does not do them justice, they are so perfectly aged and could pass for antiques...
What is Valentine's Day without a few antique Valentines...

And a pincushion made in a class with Maggie Bonanomi years ago...

And a table runner from the Maggie Bonanomi Girl's Club with Country Sampler a few years back.

I was so excited to find an unexpected package in the mail today!

I almost didn't want to open this sweet little package!
Don't you just love the sweet button and actual sewing pattern as wrapping paper? The card is so pretty.

Inside was this sweet paper garland from my dear friend Wendy!
Thank you ever so much Wendy for brightening my day!
Oh dear, not sure why it is upside down, but you get the idea. I'm afraid it is too late at night to wrestle the photo around.

Thank you for sticking with this long post!
I am thinking that it is time for another giveaway. Stay tuned and I will be posting about it soon.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
~John 13:34-35

Blessings, Patti

I love it all, Patti! The needlework pieces are wonderful. I really have to try again soon and see if my fingers will let me work.
