I Heart Hearts

Hello Hello,
hows everyone doing with their swap goodies?
I hope you are chatting and becoming friends with your partners!
I can't wait to see what everyone is giving and receiving!
Be sure to post pictures so we can all share in the fun!

I am feeling better then I have in weeks, but not 100% better!
From what everyone says this years flu is the worse flu virus we have had in awhile,
and it hangs on for a long time!
Weeks, even a month!

Oyyyyyy.... Let me tell you I am sure glad I am heading towards the end of it!
I have not been this sick in years and it really drained me!
I have had no energy and just want to sleep sleep sleep!

Now I am tired of being in bed, tired of not being able to do anything!
And you are tired of hearing me whine!

So onto the gooooooooood stuff!

This week I received presents.... lots of pretty presents!

Let me show you!

Natalea {kandeland} was one of my partners for My Vintage Heart Swap.....
Her package arrived this week!!!

I opened the box and there was this beeeeutiful pink satin covered heart shaped box studded with pearls!

Ohhhhh sooooooo pretty!

I sat on the bed just stareing at this beeeeautiful box! I felt like Cinderella!
Inside she had it filled, I mean filled with all kinds of hearts,

pink hearts, red hearts, white hearts, heart candies, glittered hearts, heart ornies, heart potholder, heart charm, heart brooch, heart doilies, ETC....

I love hearts...
so you can imagine how wonderful it was to sit there with all these pretty hearts!

And if that was'nt enough, there at the bottom of the box was this pretty, ornate,
HEART shaped plate,
in the softest shade of cotton candy pink!
Perfect to hang in our bedroom!

Natalea thank you with all my heart for your thoughtfullness and generosity!

It was so much fun meeting you and haveing you as a partner!

You Filled my heart with hearts!!!!!

Hugz and Heartz, Dolly
