Patti's Valentine!!!

Gingerboy-but he almost looks like *chocolate*!

Now that Elizabeth has received him, I can show you  pix of my little Gingerboy that I made for her ornament swap.  He is a Gingermelon pattern, but I added his little heart garland. He was fun to make, and I guess I do like working on tiny things!!

I received my darling Valentine from Patti of Paintin Patti and it's so cute!

Patti says it reminds her of her DH and her~so sweet!

Here is my darling rag ball garland with vintage Valentines at night.  Yep, I still have candles in my windows. I just like them.  That warm glow ...

So ... I added Patti's Valentine to the garland:

Smack in the middle!!

Isn't it just so cute!  I pulled the shade down and thought it showed up better that way!  I'm loving my garland and my beautiful Valentines!!

A little closer ~ how sweet the look on that girl's face!

Closer still!!!

Now you can see the glitter added to highlight her blond curls and his Valentine.  See all of the tiny three-dimensional flowers she added?  They add just the perfect little touch to this Valentine garden.  It surely does bring a smile to my face!  Thank you Patti ~ I'm hoping you received mine by now!!!  All of these Valentine swaps were just so much fun.  I believe it brings the circle in a little closer!!  We get to know each other by our stylings.  And it's been so nice to see how a theme can be interpreted so differently by each person!  I saw that, too, with the Christmas Shadow Box Swap.  Same little boxes, but each one done oh so differently.  All of these goodies I consider my treasures.  To keep forever!!!
