Thursday Pearls, Heart Garlands...And The Giveaway Winner


"Love is a great beautifier..."


~ Louisa May Alcott, author of the beloved story, Little Women

"Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart."  ~ Proverbs 3:3

And now it is time to share the lovely winner of my ''love'' giveaway...with sincerest thanks to each of you for your kind words and for sharing the beautiful ways you show those you love how much you care...

How I would love to gift each of you with something handmade and sweet!  But as I sadly cannot, I will announce the dear winner of this pretty 'love' wall hanging, handmade by my sister...

Congratulations to....


Dearest Bethany...I do hope that every time you glance at this stitched wall hanging you will be reminded to love unconditionally...may it bless you and encourage you to show others that they are special and loved by you and God, our Father!



Oh, and I wanted to show you the sweet heart garlands I had fun making this week...perhaps you've already guessed...I love creating Valentine's inspired things!  {{happy sigh}}.  I think they turned out quite beautifully...  I used double-sided scrapbook paper which gave the garlands some extra colour and cheer!  Have you been busy at your craft table with any Valentine~related crafts...?

Hugs n' love!
