Scott and I decided this year to start a new tradition of having a handmade theme for our Valentine's Day gifts to each other.
We were in Maryland over Valentine's week. Scott went to some of my favorite local shops there and made this beautiful gift basket for me!
It included a gorgeous dark red, long-stemmed rose, sparkling apple cider and other goodies from McCutcheon's, a box of hand-selected chocolates from Olympia Candy Kitchen (all dark chocolate and no nuts - just what I like!), and a selection of gemstone focus beads from Potomac Bead Company for my jewelry-making projects! He picked them all out himself - aren't they gorgeous? I can't wait to play with them!
I loved everything, and was so impressed with the time and effort he put into thinking about what I would like, hand-selecting everything, and arranging it all so cute in a little basket. He really knows how to make things special.
His gift from me was these little covered soaps that I made.
Those big, manly hands of his have a hard time holding on to slippery bars of soap in the shower, so I thought washcloth covers would help make the soap bars non-slip and sudsy. He says he loves them. I had fun making them for him.
I'm so grateful to be married to my sweet, wonderful Valentine!
