Heart Day and shop update!!!

It's Valentine's Day...welcome to the party!
What a fun day today is. First off, being Valentine's Day and all and that means it's the day for the big reveal for Cheryl and Jenn's Secret Admierer swap. I'm posting late and I don't think my partner had figured out that I was her admierer yet, so hopefully these pics will help her!I sent this pocket of goodies to Sandy at Quill Cottage. These are the treats that I received from my partner, who kept me guessing until the very end. Turns out it's the lovely and amazing Lori of Vintage Flair. Thanks, Lori...I love it all! Since it is a sweetheart kind of day and you are all sweeter than any candy imaginable, I decided to have a little party. Be sure and scroll down to the end of the post for some party treats I posted in my etsy shop! I hope to have lots more spring inspired goodies in my shop in the near future.Finally, a little surprise...I created some festive party cones made with my vintage crepe paper and millinery stash. I love how these turned out and they totally got me in the mood for spring. I had a ball figuring out how to make flowes with crepe paper and these blossoms turned out beautifully. The crepe paper opens on top and you can put a gift inside, or just hang as is. They're in my shop now!!!




Happy Valentine's Day!!

Lucky you for having Lori send you all those beautiful goodies :)

Where is this delicious party taking place? It looks like a magical fairy land! How did you make those great floral pompoms?!

Happy Valentine's Day, Sweetie!
