gift of time...

Time flies.
Especially when you are busy or having fun!

Time goes by so fast.
I remember my parents always saying that.
I realize it now too.

When you know someone is so busy and takes the time to think of you and create something so special, just for you ~ it is the perfect gift.

Let me show you what I mean...


Pretty wonderful isn't it...

Such a thoughtful gift and from the heart...
Even the back is beautiful...
Thank you so much Jodie for your gift of time...
You are in my heart and I will treasure this always!

It is Vintage Inspiration Friday today over at Common Ground where Debra is sharing her beautiful Valentine Sunroom!  Next Friday she is inviting us all to her Vintage Valentine Party...
Jim and I have been married for 25 1/2 years but we have been together for almost 33 years.  Does that make us Vintage Valentines?

Thank you all so much for stopping by today and don't forget to enter my giveaway!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Sandi- That is just beautiful. I LOVE it! LOVE it! LOVE it! I'd say you are better than Vintage Valentines....not at all yellowed with age or crumbly around the edges;>)

Jodie obviously values you as a gift in her life...and showed you how much by making this wonderful bag. Hugs-Diana
