thank you and a flower power ring

Flower power ring.

In an earlier post, I think I mentioned that I made rings with flowers as well as with the felt and wooden hearts. I found a pack of paper flowers at the craft shop, and I sewed them on with needle and thread - just like I did with the heart rings.

Big thanks to Emily at Saltwater-Kids and the folks at Parent Map for linking to my Valentine's Day heart magnets from last year. Take a peek at Saltwater Kids clever heart shaped warm pack for scrapes and bruises. Such a sweet candy-free idea. Then, head over to Parent Map where they feature a whole bunch of bright cheery Valentine's Day projects which use repurposed materials.

More thanks to Not the Office Type for linking to my Story Stones in her post about making her own sweet love rocks.

And, even more big thanks for the kind and comforting thoughts and memories you wrote in response to the post about losing my Nanny Ruth. In the midst of my sadness, I feel so lucky to be connected to beautiful people like you. Honest! I really feel that way. Thank you, dear friends.

I think it is going to snow again. But, what's new?

Happy Friday.
