Happy Saint Valentine's Day


to all of you dear blogging friends and readers!

Welcome to another rosy and heartfelt post for Saint Valentine's day today on February 14th 2007!


I'd like to invite you to a Valentines tea party, take a seat and make yourself comfortable, the table is set in rosy pinks for you:



And if you would like to stay also for a Valentines dinner party tonight, you are cordially invited as well:



This is a little Valentines "Hello" from my garden for you!



Last Sunday I've got this lovely antique rose book as another late b-day gift and I thought it would also make a pretty picture for Valentine's day here on my blog:



This is another rosy heart which I've finished making last week:



Talking about hearts, the paper hearts for my dear winners are both packed and ready to send out to Wales in Great Britain and to Idaho in the USA today!

I'm wishing everyone of you a most joyful day! xox

Let me be the first to wish you a day filled with love and happiness Carol.

I’d love to accept your invitation to take tea with you and if I may, I’ll stay on for dinner too, but I see you have already reserved my place!

I shall need a little extra time to take a closer look at all your beautiful furnishing and gorgeous artefacts. To linger, to touch and gaze in wonderment at your exquisite creations, not forgetting a gentle stroll around Boxwood Cottage garden.

So much looking forward to my paper heart arriving. Thank you.
A lovely post with gorgeous pictures.
Hugs Marion x

Hi Carol, just stopped by here to see if you had a new post and wanted to tell you I love the new look to your blog

Anita said...

I am just taking a break from sewing the hearts for our littel swap. "Just" 5 more to finish!

Congratulations on your new blog design! That was a sort of telepathy since I changed my blog design this week-end, too. Initially, I just wanted to give a more springlike "look" to my profile photo when I found out that changing colours is soooo easy with the new blogger version!

Looking forward to your next post!

Digi Scribbles said...

Hi Carol, Thanks for your comment. Your hearts are gorgeous and I would think they would sell well in an Etsy shop. I especially like the ones with roses and pink edging, like the second one in this post. I'm thinking of possibly opening a shop there too after I'm moved and settled a bit and can get some cards made up. Let me know if you do open your shop. Be sure to announce it on your blog as lots of people would be interested.

Ohhhh your hearts are so beautiful ! bravo !
