Valentine Gifties

I have some Valentine gifties for my friends. I've been honored to receive some beautiful gifts in the last few days. Today I want to share them with my friends. Happy Valentine's Day to each of you.

Hootin' Anni shared some of her beautiful creations with all her blogging friends. I picked up all three of them and would like to share two of them with everyone who comes to visit today. Thank you, Anni for your generosity and caring.

The next two were presented to me by Denise at Samaritan Women. Thank you, Denise. The friendship one is lovely and the kittens are adorable.

This is National Friendship Week and to celebrate, I would like to give the following Friendship Award to all my friends who visit here on a regular basis. I've formed some great friendships since I started blogging here. I love each of you.

The one below was also given to me by Denise of Samaritan Women. I would like to pass it on to:

BJ at Sweet Nothings

Joan at Erstwhile Librarian

Susan at Pawley Farm Seaasons

Paula at On a Rainy Night

Denise's Dad at The Poet, The Artist

  11. Oh my Mary....this is just so beautiful!!! I have a new award too for sometime later in the month...can't wait to get it going [maybe I'll wait 'til later in March since Easter is coming by quickly...dunno yet.] Okay, so you probably wasn't wanting to know all that, but hehehehe, you got the info straight from me. LOL

    Thank you so much. You KNOW I think you're a treasure to blogland too, don't you? Well, you do now.

    I love this. And I will get it up before the weekend's over. It's fantastic, and you've touched my heart.

Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough. I just love the Valentines you made for the boys and I'm thrilled that those two adorable beanies will have good homes with them:-) xoxo

  14. I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day Mary. I appreciate you sharing the two awards from Hootin’ Anni and the lovely Friendship Award (that you’ve created yourself) with me. How very generous and thoughtful of you. I can tell you’ve been busy here because there are 10 new posts since my last visit. How can that be??? Either you’ve been posting more than once a day, or it’s been more than a week since I’ve been around. I’ve not spent much time at all online … I barely get a post on one or the other of my blogs these days because other life events claim my attention, but I’m trying to figure things out and hope you’ll bear with me while I do so.
    Hugs and blessings,

  15. Thank you!!!
    love ya dearest Mary
    you're a joy!!

  16. Thank you my dear friend, you are a treasure. I love you.

Long week but things have worked out real well...Mothers foot is 100% better and I go for my first shot tomorrow at 10:30.. Thanks for the sweet award and I will put it up maybe tomorrow.........
