Northwoods Beauty and Valentine Swap

You've seen photos and heard me speak of the
pristine beauty of the Wisconsin northwoods.  (From the last snowstorm early January)
These photos are just that...
I didn't have to go far to snap these in the back and front yard.
No Cardinals yet but the Chickadees and their
sweetness come everyday along with other varieties to feed.

I'm ending with photos of our Valentine Swap!
It was fun making hearts of felt.

And Lisa at Pearl Avenue Studios sent the pretty brocade heart with
handstitched pearls (bottom photos). Such talent!

My heart package to Lisette at Liszha's Scrappy World  :

Handmade felt heart pin cushion

Felt needle book

Pretty cushioned hanging heart with handsewn pearls, made with Brocade fabric from Lisa at
Pearl Avenue Studios.  Absolutely beautiful handiwork.  Love the look Lisa! Thank you so much.

Thank you!

Thanks Marsha at Tattered Chick for hosting such a neat Valentine Swap! Happy Valentine's Day to all of you....

  10. Hi Linda, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  11. What a beautiful place to live! Your gifts are sweet too! The kids and I just started reading the Little House on the Prairie series (for the millionth time) and are dreaming of living in beautiful, snowy Wisconsin! :)

    I wanted to let you know that I'm hosting a month-long Giveaway Jubilee beginning March 1st. I know you've hosted giveaways before and thought you might be interested. You can participate as a giver, a (hopefully) winner, or both! Just click on the button at the top right of my sidebar that says "Giveaway Jubilee" for more info.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend,

  12. Wonderful swap Linda! Hope you are enjoying a beautiful winter. I couldn't tell if by home, you meant your Wisconsin home, or your Arizona home, so I don't know if you are in the sunshine, or sunny Wisconsin (but a lot colder). Wherever you are, may you have a wonderful weekend!

    I miss you!
