It's a little early to start thinking about Valentine's Day, but if there was a reason to start early, this is it! Heidi at "Foxgloves, Fabric, and Folly" is hosting a "Very Vintage Valentine Swap." What a fun concept!
I love correspondence, sending letters, and receiving "snail mail." If you enjoy the same you may want to join in her Valentine swap. The premise is that you send a basket filled with no more than $20 of vintage style Valentine goodies to someone special who also wanted to participate. You send Heidi your preferences in terms of flowers, colors, decor style, etc...and someone is given your name and preferences. Since it is a vintage theme, I stopped at one of our local antique shops and had fun browsing through vintage hankerchiefs, silver spoons, tea cups, old 50's style Valentine's etc...for ideas to send in my package.
You have until Dec. 29th to join. On Jan. 2nd your recipient's name is sent to you, and then on Jan. 21st everyone mails their packages. It sounds fun, and several ladies had done her Christmas exchange and were so thrilled, I thought I'd join the fun. If you're interested you can check out her sidebar on the right! :-) But first, let's enjoy the Christmas season and savor the weeks to come!
