Wow, the East Coast of the U.S. is being slammed with a freezing rain and snow storm. Stay safe everyone! Let's celebrate Rednesday today!

I received a package in the mail yesterday. I just knew it had to be my Spoolie Swap box from Chris of Perfectly Printed! You know it's gotta be something good when you open to pretty pink bubble wrap!

The first thing I see under the bubble wrap is a pair of socks! I LOVE socks!!

And, what was with the socks? Candy! Yippee!

The next layer produced a boatload of goodies: another box of chocolates, vintage Valentine cards, a pretty pink tissue bell, two vintage floral decals, a cute little "rag" bowl and a mini paper bag with L-O-V-E Scrabble letters. I'm on sensory overload at this point!

And the piece de resistance is ~ the spool! OMG, it's so beautiful! (Sorry it looks crooked, but I photo'd it on my couch) Look at all the pretty crocheted items, the ballerina, heart mold, pink ribbon, pearls, doilies, and . . .

a gorgeous antique calling card that says, "A token of regard for thee In this my simple offring, see".

Chris, you outdid yourself! Again, thank you SO much! Now, here's what I sent to Chris:

This is the spoolie, celebrating the Queen of Hearts ~

And this the the Valentine card/shadow box ~

I hope you all have a fun and wonderful Valentine's Day!

I love all your beautiful things! Unfortunately, my swap partner never answered any of my messages, but I made a spoolie anyway! Have a Happy Valentines Day!
