Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!! Don't forget...it's Sunday!

I received some great gifts today!

In the mail, from my daughter, Lindsey...I received a gorgeous hand knitted pink and lacy shawl (yep-made my her!!). Thank you so much Lindsey! and no, Lindsey, I haven't picked up the crochet project you started for me at Christmas time!

Also--I want to congratulate my daughter Lindsey for her big promotion at work!! Way to go!!

Now, for a gift I just received from my very sweet and thoughtful husband, Bob!! Bubble wrap!! Yes, you heard that correctly...bubble wrap! I use a ton for my shops http://www.jenscloset.etsy.com/ http://www.mymilkglassshop.etsy.com/ and my brand new shop (already had my first order!) http://www.thechinagirl.etsy.com/ !! And he also gave me gorgeous fresh flowers-which I also love to use when I taking pics of things I'm listing in my shops! I just love fresh flowers! They cheer up these snowy days!
I also included a picture of cute valentine bags my daughter, Katherine (16), filled with her homemade sugar cookies! I didn't get a chance to take pics of the decorated cookies, but believe me..she's like a mini-martha (yeah, martha stewart)..let's just say she's a little particular with the decorating of the cookies, and I'm not really allowed to help!

So Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Remember, it's the little things that you do throughout the year that really mean the most...but, of course, we also love receiving gifts on this love-filled holiday!!
