PRH Valentine Swap

My swap partner was Celeste and I couldn't have been more thrilled! What a talented artist this lady is! Just a sampling of her work.....


The first package ( all of these were lovingly wrapped, I might add) took my breath away. She really knows me as this is little petal cake is such a perfect gift. Beautiful hand painted card, too!!

The second package made me cry.....




Inside the heart shaped box.....



Then, to top it off, the box was full of these glittering goodies too......



I feel so blessed to just know Celeste, let alone be her swap partner and friend! She is such a special lady and really knows how to pamper and spoil. Thank you so much, my dear friend. I am overjoyed!



Lucky for you, Celeste has an eBay store where you can find goodies like these! Go shopping and drooling at La Rea Rose where you will find her beautiful hand painted and crafted items.

Hi Bertie! Must have been a glitch with my image hosting because they are all showing again. Take a peek at the washstand! I so appreciate your feedback about whether to paint the bookcase! I do believe we think alike about most things!!
