I have been the very happy recipient of some beautiful gifts lately.
This lovely heart charm is from sweet Terri.
Right now it graces my tiny feather tree,
an office fixture year-round.
Thank you Terri for such a sweet and thoughtful gift.

This next wonderful treasure is from dear Dorthe.
Thank you Dorthe for such a lovely gift.

Speaking of treasures,
my always thoughtful sil, Janet,
has spent the last few months helping her inlaws downsize in preparation of a move.

Janet combed through 80+ years of accumulated mementos
and saved all the things she knows I love best.

This is my favorite of the lot!
A and K in rhinestones, how perfect!
(I must remember to ask Janet who AK was)
A & K,
Mr. aJs and me,
Anthony and Kimberly
Thanks bunches Janet!

Valentine ATC update:
The swap packages were mailed on Friday,
so you can expect them soon.
I will photograph every one's beautiful contributions to this swap and share them later this week.

As a side note:
If you are looking for a great way to display ATCs,
Michaels has these on clearance for $4.99!

enJOY A Beautiful Sunday,

What lovely gifts Kimberly! I can't wait to receive my valentines and those trays are a wonderful way to display atcs. I have a white one, but for $4.99 I think I could use a few more! Hope my Michael's has them...

Finding trinkets & turning them into treasured works of art which honor their past "owners" is a God given gift that you do so beautifully. I am so thrilled that my MIL's mother's name, Anna Kushner, will live on in the love story of A & K. You're the best "sister" a girl could ever hope for. Love you bunches --- Janet

Oh my gosh, Did I miss your Birthday or something? What a beautiful collection of gifts!

Wish I knew someone who was downsizing! LOL
