♥'s around my house, and heartfelt thanks.

Since it's Valentine's Day I thought I would create a post that not only shows some of the hearts around my house, but also to give thanks where thanks is {long over-}due.

Here we go:
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that Doug finds heart shaped rocks for me and I have a very nice collection. Thank you, Douglas!!! xoxoxo

This pretty red ceramic heart was a surprise gift from my friend, Rhona. Love it!!! Thanks, Rhona! xo

And this sweet little heart, carved smoothly out of wood? I owe thanks to Ruth for this one. I'm SO fond of it! xo

And see that little heart under the flowers at the base of our wedding photo? Rhona again! SO sweet!!!
Here's a shot of my kitchen window sill where I have a little wooden bowl overflowing with heart rocks from Doug.

And this heart from my dear friend, Mel, that she found on the beach in Wales and thought enough to pick it up and send it my way. It sits on my craft table and reminds me of the amazing connection I have with creative women all over the world. Thanks again, Mel! xo

I recently had the good fortune to win a blog giveaway from Beverly, and I was oh so pleased with my lovely prize package ~ a nicely covered notebook and a sweet Valentine card. Thanks so much, Beverly! I it!
And this next little piece of love isn't heart-shaped but it's the next best thing as far as I'm concerned. You know I love me some turtles, and Lizzie surprised me with a turtle stamp she designed and carved herself, just for me. He came all the way from the UK, along with some teeny-weeny little notebooks that Lizzie made as well. Thanks so much, Lizzie!!! xo
Just this past week I received a prize package from a contest I won over at The Scrappy Tree. It was a furry friends challenge and a donation was sent to the SPCA {animal shelter organization} in my name. As if that wasn't enough, I also received these lovely goodies. And what a sweet surprise that the package included cat treats! Whiskers Jay, Fancy Jane, and I all thank you!!!
And one more thank you to Melissa who sent me a fabulous package of scrap goodies a while back and I was remiss in photographing them before they were disbursed amongst my own supplies. Thanks so much, Melissa! Your generosity amazed me.
So, thanks to everyone who has gone out of their way to make me feel so special and very much loved. I appreciate it so much...from the bottom of my heart!
Happy Valentine's Day!

I love your rock collection. That's so sweet. My son found a heart rock once and I love it so. It's the rock that I use on my header picture.

I LOVE your new with them!

Lizzie said...

What a lot of lovely treasure, Deb! I'm so glad the turtle stamp arrived okay - I was sure you'd like it!
All those heart-shaped rocks are great. If you carry on with that collection, you'll have enough to make a cute edging for a new bathroom floor (or patio)!
