happy valentine's day

Happy Valentine's Day! 
I hope that you have a day filled with sweetness and love dear friends! And, thank you for all the love that you have given me through this little blog of mine! It has blessed me so!
I am almost finished with my little gingham project. A little hand stitching was done, and the finishing touches are being made. Something has overcome me lately with a sudden love for gingham and cross-stitch. I don't know what it is about the combination, but it just is so sweet!
 There are some other projects that I have planned, so I ordered some more pretty colors to play with!!
I have a weakness for roses, and when I saw these plastic kitschy roses on this pretty blog, I knew I had to get some! 
They are little cupcake toppers and I bought them from a cute shoppe called Sweet Estelle's. I love how they look in the red Pyrex bowl, and they would also make a lovely touch to a gift, too! So many craft ways you could use them!
I was in need of a new pin cushion, so I took some of my favorite vintage rose fabric and vintage lace, and sewed together this little one. 
Even pins need a pretty place to rest! ;)
To celebrate Valentine's Day, I am having a one day sale in my shoppe! Enjoy 14% off your order when you enter the code "love" at checkout! 

Sending you Valentine hugs, and wishing you a most lovely day and a beautiful weekend!

"Dear Friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God....We love because he first loved us." 1John 4: 7,19

Thank you to sweet Meri for the adorable vintage bluebird image! ;)

  21. I've always had a thing for gingham. My school uniform in summer was a brown and white gingham dress, a brown blazer, and a straw boater, I hated the latter two but I loved the dress.

    Pretty things here today :D
