Some Valentines Wishes & Lovely Surprises for Me!

I'm excited today, the weather is lovely and it's sunny here although very cold. I am getting anxious about starting my new job next week but also looking forward to it too. I received a lovely package in the post this morning. It was from Monika, I was her first follower on her new blog where you can follow her life moving to a country cottage, deocrating, crafting, sewing, and life in general. She is very creative and makes lovely crafty items. Check out her blog.

So here was my surprise this morning,

A pretty envelope, for valentines it had lots of pretty hearts. Isn't it sweet
Then I opened it, and there was this wonderful hand crafted Valentines Card inside :)
There were four packages inside, I opened them one by one and look what I found, some handmade magnets with All things nice... on them :)
Ain't they beautiful! and look at the wee hearts on the wrapping paper

And there was more...
Monika knew my favourite colour was blue.

It's a little pendant with Silver Swarovski Crystals
Have a closer look!

I love the blue colour, it's really elegant and the crystals catches the light so beautifully. Monika hand makes all these items, she is very talented and creative.

I am going to put it on my silver chain, I love it!!!
I'll take a photograph of it on the chain this evening.
Thank you so much Monika, you truly are a generous person : )
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Weekend : )

  4. Hi there!
    Thanks for visiting my blog! Glad you enjoyed the history lesson!!
    Love your pendant !
    Have a great weekend ;-)

  5. Hello and so glad to hear you will be starting a job 5 days a week. Isn't it sad that we either have time and no money or money and no time. I so badly wish in life we could find some kind of balance. I was reading one of your recent posts and the quote you had really struck me about people and things and how we have confused what should be loved and what should be used. If you wouldn't mind I would love to do a post about that in the near future. It really struck a chord with me. I very much believe we have it all wrong in this world. As much as I want to believe that we shouldn't be driven by material things we are all very taken by them and forget to hold dear our relationships. Thanks for talking about that. It is my one really big wish in the world that we could find a way to love one another better than we do. We are so addicted to our things and feel we are defined by how much we have of them.
    I try to remember that each day!
    Good luck with your new job. I hope you enjoy it and enjoy having money again:)
    Talk to you soon!
