The fun continues with Vicki's "Grow Your Own Blog Party".
I received another prize this week that I won from one of the many give-aways.
This one is from Carol at "Art and Sand".  Thank you, Carol!

The timing for this prize to arrive this week is perfect!
It's fits right in with Valentine's Day.  
It's a sweet, handmade gift...

 When I opened up the package, there was a tin inside.
Inside the tin was a sweet little red heart sitting on top of a drawstring cotton bag.

When I opened up the bag, this was inside...

It's a little spool, tied up with a cord and pretty little hearts.
On the spool are words of wisdom about the heart.
It's all handcrafted by Carol.  Isn't it cute?!

There are hand drawn hearts on the other side.
I like the red gingham strip that attaches the paper to the spool too.

It warms my heart to receive this handmade gift.
Thank you, again, Carol.  I love it!  

If you get a chance, be sure to pop over to Carol's blog, "Art and Sand", for a visit.
She has a beautiful blog.  I can't help but smile and stay a while whenever I visit.
It's so colorful and happy.  She shares pictures of her lovely home and garden,
wonderful things she makes, and paintings done by her husband who is a talented artist.

Happy Valentine's Day!

You are too sweet to write an entire post about the little spool.

I signed up for 2 different Heart Swaps, but the hearts I was supposed to receive got lost in the mail. Yesterday, a new set arrived, just in time. They are so cute and I added them to my decorations.

I am so glad you like the little spool.

Happy Valentines Day

Very fun! I love that tin, especially. I won two giveaways too, but haven't posted about them yet. Maybe when I get back in town. Don't you just love handmade gifts?
