Valentine Swap

From Viv  Happy February everyone! I have enjoyed this month so far. It has included a fun swap that Viv from Viv out on a Whim had this year! What a fun swap this was and a fun challenge for me, too! We were to make a Valentine card and a decoration, and include lots of goodies or joy! From Viv  As, you can see, Viv really did a great job of spoiling me! I sure had fun opening each little present that she individually wrapped for me! I had an empty spot on my old Singer sewing machine which made a great place to put all her wonderful Valentines! She made a cute decorated Valentine box, a beautiful deer Valentine on a spool, a sweet girl on a swing, and the sweetest heart ornament with a key! She also included plenty of chocolate to keep me smiling, and some pretty towels for my kitchen! Do you see those cute paper globes? I have never had any of these before! I am excited to use them in my decorating throughout Spring! From Viv  I am really amazed by Viv

On heavy cloudy days it almost appears in shades of black and white!  The pine trees are so heavy in their strong branches as the weight from the snow weights them down.    Even the birds are staying in, no picnic today!    Planting a yardstick in the white powder is a fun way to measure how much snow we got on this particular day.  The trees and fence never fail to give my camera a pretty picture. I feel like a grand photographer!   It seems so silent and still. A quiet moment in this cold beautiful weather. But life has not stood still. Yes, I have to adventure out in this weather. The fog was very thick!  But when the sun comes out, all the snow crystals are divine!  God has painted a wonderful blanket in
