I was a host for "The Vintage Candy Box Swap" (a swap for Valentine's Day) and I ended up with two partners because we had an uneven number when it was all said and done. I did not mind. I also received a lovely box from one of the participants, because she is a good generous friend and she wanted to do it for me. (she will be getting a little surprise in the mail from me) So I ended up with 3 boxes of vintage Valentine loveliness. Wow, did I get spoiled spoiled again. Sit back there are lots of pictures in this post. First I will show you what I sent to them. . . . . . . .
And the next one was sent to Pam White
Around the first part of February, I received a surprise candy box from Laurie at Indulge your shelf
Be still my heart. I love this piece and the box it came in. I just loved all that she sent so much the next picture is the Valentine I sent out to Laurie, to thank her for the goodies she surprised me with. This heart was like a mini candy box filled with little goodies. The only problem is that I did not photograph the contents of this little tin heart. I do remember putting a bracelet in there. There were just so many packages this month, I can't hardly keep up! Love to you Laurie, you are so very generous and thoughtful!
This next box was sent to me by Pam White, of The Finderskeeper.blogspot.com and I am still drooling over the box and the contents.
My Heart be still! These cards are from the gifted line! Love them!
I was completely in love with all of this. Pam spoiled me so much
The next one was sent to me by Wendy Wirth. of thefrogprincess-ww.blogspot.com She used a Heart shaped candy box
I loved the crocheted snowflakes, vintage buttons, and the needle book with needles, and she even included some ephemera, scrapbook supplies and dark chocolate, my favorite. I think you will all agree that I did indeed get spoiled this February with amazing swappin! Thanks to you all!

I have been hard at work making Valentines. Valentine cards, Valentine Candy boxes, valentine Spoolies and even Valentine bracelets. These photos are all of items I have made in the last couple of weeks. (accept for the boxes as that will be a post later) JoAnne of Vintage Dragonfly hosted a swap which consisted of exchanging what she called Valentine Spoolies. Some great examples came from Lynne Trash to treasure art and they are beautiful. . . . . .
She said do up some spoolies, but don't exactly copy these. I always need to do something different anyway. So here are the ones I came up with.
This one will be sent to my partner Jo. I used lots of glass glitter and even little bits of broken pink mercury glass. I used an old tiny heart shaped box, and two old spools. I envisioned
the back side.
I decided to use some vintage wooden spools and some cute small old bottles all put together to form a Valentine Spoolie. I really had fun creating these. The first will be sent to my partner. And then I just really wanted to keep one for myself.
Then I got busy making Valentine cards. I love paper crafting. I also had 2 partners for a Valentine Candy box swap, so I decorated candy boxes, but that will be for a new post later.
