Love Gift Exchange

It's was another rainy, dreary weekend here.  Looks as though it will be this way for most of this week as well.  Guess I just need to learn to tolerate it and be happy. ~smile~  Hubby and I did get outside for the brief time that it didn't rain on Sat.  We did a little prep work on some of our pot plants that we had "wintered."  It felt good to at least be out and making some preparations for spring.  Surely it's on it's way!
Now, on to the subject at hand............



The Blended Blog gals hosted a Valentine exchange and I joined up.  We were matched up with someone else and that same person was matched up with us.  I was matched with Holly from Coordinator of Chaos.


Holly's package arrived on Valentine's Day.  How's that for perfect timing!  



Once the package was opened there was the cutest envelope with a handmade Valentine enclosed.


Then there was this cute cello bag tied all pretty with Valentine ribbon.


Upon opening the tissue I found more tissue.  These two wrapped tissues contained my surprises.


Inside one were these red satiny dangle earrings.  I think these have a name as I've seen them on the internet, but I can't remember the name.  They sort of remind me of the "shoulder duster" earrings of long ago.


Thankfully I have a long enough neck that I can sport them just fine.  They make quite the statement for sure and I can wear them on many occasions.  Thinking Valentine's, 4th of July and Christmas for starters.


Inside the other tissue was the pretty gold cuff bracelet.


It looks very nice and I wear a bracelet everyday.  Bracelets and earrings are an everyday accessory for me.  It's lightweight and large enough to slide up my arm a bit and I'll enjoy wearing it for sure.

Thanks Holly for being my Valentine exchange partner!
