Valentine Tree and Swap Goodies #1

The Chinese New Year tree in our sunroom was packed up Saturday afternoon and replaced with my Valentine decor.

I recently participated in a private Valentine swap with Lynn from "Life on the Wienee Ranch". Just look at all my lovely goodies.

Josie has already claimed this owl purse.
It was perfect to fill and take to church.

My kitchen towels were desperately lacking in the "cute" factor.
Aren't these sweet!
Love the magnetic tray too!
I can't wait to find a special place for these paper cuts.

These keys and cone were the perfect
addition to my Valentine tree.

Emma has already claimed the Paris tag for her bedroom once Valentines is over with. Isn't that tiny Eiffel tower charm darling!

These thumb tacks are coming to work with me. My office bulletin board could definitely benefit from some "cute" too.

Thank you, Lynn.
I love all my special Valentine goodies.

I've got 2 more swaps to share in the future.
Here's a sneak peek at one of my treasures
from my 2nd swap with Lisa
(A Peaceful Place to Be)

Aren't blogging friends the best!!

XOXO

Hi Kim,
I am so happy that you enjoyed the goodies I managed to send. I am glad Emma enjoyed the Paris theme key! I kinda had her in my mind when making it. I found the paper in my stash and remembered I had some eifel tower charms. I have a few decorated keys left if anyone else would like to swap with me. Big hugs to you and thank you so much for always swapping with me. I hope I did you proud this time around:O) Hugs,
Lynn

I just love all your Valentine goodies! Your tree looks especially pretty all dressed up for Valentine's! I think you've inspired me to get out my pink tree and decorate it for Valentine's Day now!
Blessings,
