Happy Valentine's Day

(I know you were expecting photo tips today, but don't despair - I just scooched them over to tomorrow.)

So, Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your beloved spoils you rotten and you find yourself afloat in a river of chocolate and flowers.  Mmmmmm,....lol.  I definitely feel pretty spoiled.  I was hooked up with Carol-Anne (the heart and brain behind Use The Good Dishes) for the Happy Hour Projects Valentine Exchange.


Yesterday my awesome package arrived and I've been thrilled and getting fatter ever since. Check out this awesomeness:

As I was hanging up this wreath, my husband wandered by, stopped, stared at it, and then emphatically stated, "That is the nicest thing you've ever made."  I almost didn't fess up, but in the end I couldn't take the guilt.  Ah well.  


A colourful, spring-like closeup.  Mmmm,...spring.  :)


This jewelry set is so pretty.  I have a lot of sweaters in purple, blue, and grey, so these pieces will be put to a lot of use.


How about a closer look at this crazy adorable charm.  I find it so interesting, an art piece on its own, and I really like the colour combinations.  


Now, this is where the fatness is coming in.  Mmmmm,...this bark is amazing.  It's sweet and salty and insanely delicious and I would like to say I can't stop eating it, but I did stop eating it - once I finished the entire batch.  Uh-huh, it's gone, resting in my now fat belly.  Oh so worth it.


Happy Valentine's Day!

LOVE that jewelry - so funny, the first photo you showed, I actually leaned in and thought, I wish I could get a closer look at that little charm, it's so cool. Then there you go, a step ahead of me. Gorgeous. And that wreath is beautiful too.

I can't comment on the bark, since clearly, you're not sharing. ;)

So glad everyone is having fun with the exchange!!

How fun!!! The wreath is so bright and cheerful. It would be great on a very chilly gray day like today.:) The jewelry is beautiful. I too LOVE the charm. I think it is awesome that you ate all the bark! Did hubby get any? I could see me locking myself in the bathroom and scarfing the entire thing down!:) Happy v-day to you my dear. I hope you river of chocolate is warm and delicious.

Oh you are so sweet to post this!

My computer is down with a virus and I've just borrowed a friend's laptop so I could tell you how sorry I am not to have been able to do a proper post on your lovely gifts! I'll follow up with better pics once my computer is repaired, but thanks so much and I'm glad we got 'hooked up' for Valentine's Day!
