All that I love...

The Valentine swap that I hosted over on A Year of Color blog was called All that I Love. The goal was to get to know your partner and what they love. Then send them a package full of goodies they'll adore for Valentine's Day. My package from one of my partners, Linda Crispell arrived the other day. Look at all the fun CUTE goodies! Thanks, Linda!
This handmade snow globe has one image on the front and one on the back and came inside this box made from a vintage gameboard.
So clever!
Another neat vintage handmade piece from Linda. Lots and lots of vintage supplies.She filled some old candy tins with treasures. My favorite!
Retro candy for my endless sweet tooth. The frozen fluff box is fabulous and the mushroom just cracks me up!
Speaking of sweets, I just couldn't pass up this amazing banner from Analise's etsy shop. With Chloe's birthday coming up in a few months I can already sense the rationalizing for fun decor for me....I mean her!! Remember last year? I had a whole swap related to the big event. hehe.





Every little details is sweet as candy.

As sweet at candy indeed.
A question.
I subscribed to Year of Color, and indicated I'd like to be on the 'blogroll' but don't see my link there.
What do I need to do?
Thank you.
Love YEAR OF COLOR!, by the way.

I think I saw this banner on flickr. It inspired me although in a much simpler way! Check mine out, I just posted some pictures of it on my blog too.

And I love your swap. The snow globe and everything. The red/aqua combo is so great! Thanks for sharing such wonderful photos!
