Sharing Hearts ~

Peek a boo ~ first clue
the game is afoot
The aim of the game is to send out a secret package of hearts and chocolate to a person (or persons in my case) without saying who you are, they have to find you on the blog with the help of the organisers Jenn and Cheryl. So without further ado-

One little cherub swinging on a roses swing
Second peek ~ you will soon find what you seek2 little cherubs ~ who are they for?
A valentine box filled with goodies
and a shabby heart
2 hearts
filled with chocolates and sweets
have gone down under
This package of goodies is for Jenn and Jaquie of the Bowerbird Nest - All the way over in Australia -I went across to your blog to get the link and looks like I've been rumbled.
I'm glad it got through customs, Happy Valentines Day girls! hope you like them.

A Happy Valentines Day to all of you out there who enjoy all of this too, I certainly do, but if you don't you could just hide under the duvet
for a day just to let the hearts settle.
I received a package too ~ I wonder who it is?
The clue is Australia I think. LOL. The cutest little Koala bear, the chocolate has already been eaten and a sweet handpainted heart with a matching cupid thank you whoever you are:0)
I have found some wonderful Valentines goodies just lately.
You may have come across Sadie Lou - but if not find her here
I LOVE her little Betsy's and they come in different sizes, colours, themes - they are magnificent!
Thank you so much for all my valentine creations and this lovely opulent V I love it!
And this adorable little Betsy escaped to the kitchen and I think she will stay there, she looks quite at home. I think I might want one of your cupcake Betsy's too Sadie.

Aha Miss Ginny!

We knew it! Well we didn't really know it! lol With only one day to go until Valentiens Day and no swap in Mail we thought oh ours will be late!! When Jacqui opened the package and first saw the fabric heart, our own hearts raced!! We have secretly adored the heart on your banner, and well it just looked like...YOU! As Lori says 'you have a style all your own' We were in the car, Jacqui opened the box as we could not wait another moment, I had to pull over I was far too distracted to drive!! Then we saw the Quarantine labels and their leaflet inside, why we don't know, they probabaly wanted a long look at your things too :)lol And then the addy on the box from the UK. Hmm, we thought how lucky are we if this is true?? Anyway our suspicions turned into reality this morning when you posted on your blog and we can't tell you how happy you have made us. Your Valentines are stunning Ginny, we wish everyone could see them and touch them! But not the marsh hearts, no no no! lol We are swooning excited over-the-moon! Everything is totally exquisite! We see your swap is from Australia too, hmm, goodness we are having a guess now! Can't wait until the party, see you there!

Happy Valentines Day Ginny! And
THANK YOU, Ginny. Vous avez un beau coeur!! Jenn and Jacqui xo
