That's super Lynne. I love the red heart you embroidered as a little girl and thinks it's wonderful your mother saved it. You certainly received a sweet gift in the mail too. Looking for the 100th follower of your sweet blog. Blessings, Pamela

Hello Lynne:
This is such a joyous post, a real celebration in so many different and varied ways. Your love and enthusiasm come over in abundance.

Oh Lynne!! What they said!! You are a treasure for sure!! --I remember when u started your blog! It's such a good way to make friends- I must make more of a effort to get back to my blog!! Happy day to u my friend!
Fondly, Rain

Lynn said...

Congratulations Lynne ~ Ditto : you are a gift.

Nancy Claeys said...

What a sweet blog friend for sending all of that love! And congrats on your 100 -- well deserved. :)

What a lovely valentine treat from a friend! :-) Kim and her family are very sweet, that is for sure. And so are you. Congratulations on the 100 followers blog milestone! Your childhood hearts are so so precious. Your Mom knew the important things to save.
You asked about the baby shower... it's for a family member. (not one of my kids). I'm still working on the little afghan and hoping I still have time to get through about 6 more rows and the edging before the shower. Yikes, it's going to be close. I may have to wrap what I have done so far and give the completed blanket to her next week instead.

Gail said...

What a wonderful box of treasures!

Congratulations.

I'm not here for the giveaway just here to visit. You have already gifted me with your visits and your joy. That's a gift I will never be without.

Blog on, dear one, and your followers will grow and grow.

Lynne, first of all, let me say, those pink tulips are to die for... love love love them! And what sweet little valentine treasures, some are almost vintage looking, as are your own little embroidered hearts which anyone searching for vintage linens would die for! Congrats on nearing 100 followers, obtaining more followers just because people are interested in what you have to say is truly a bloggers goal (even though most won't say that, LOL!)... I follow you on reader but am now "officially" following you because reader followers just don't show up! (Sorry Lynne, I had to delete my first message because I couldn't sign in to Google and I had written the post before following) Cheers~

Your little clay hearts are so cute.
