Vintage Valentines and a Sunbonnet Sue Needlecase Giveaway

Happy Valentines Day everyone.. It's that wonderful day when we all gather to celebrate our love for all things pink. This week,it's supposed to be about Valentines and all things sweet..and I think these are really cute. I sorta wish the valentines were still like this..I know things can't stay the same,it's just I miss the Valentines of back in the day.....
I so hope Beverly is feeling some better now and wish her a speedy recovery. I've had the surgery and my recovery went well. I pray the same for you Beverly.. We all join you with the best wishes and so many hugs..Take care and listen to the Dr. and please,please,be good to yourself whilst you recup.
To join Beverly click on..
HowSweetTheSound ...
we'll all go visiting to look at all the sweet things.. Let's be off....
And here is my giveaway..It's a sweet Sunbonnet Sue needlecase and pincushion. Her little dress and underslip is the needlecase and her little hat is a softly stuffed pincushion. (Though I can't stand to put pins in her hat..I don't want to hurt her). You may choose this one or I have a purple gingham one if you had rather. If you win,and don't like either,then I will make one just for you..and hope I can get as close as possible to your chosen colors. It may take a bit to get another one done..I just can't shake this bug..and we got a blanket of snow,8 to 10" for us,and in Texas,we're just not used to that. It was pretty,but cold and now it's kind of a mess. Due to the snow and this bug I can't shake,I still haven't gotten Sherry's apron mailed to her. She won the last giveaway,and when we finally did get in touch,then this bug and the snow..Sherry,don't give up on me. Come Monday,your apron will be mailed..and there will be a few surprises in the've waited so're a real sweetie,and I'm so proud to know you.
To sign up for the giveaway..just leave a comment for 1 entry, for another entry ..either follow,or tell me if you're already a follower,for another chance. I can't believe how much fun giveaways are. It's absolutely as much fun as thank you to you all,for commenting and letting me have so much fun.
p.s. I thought little Sue worked well for a Valentine giveaway, since she is such a little "sweetheart"....and she's ever so proud to be dressed in her Marine outfit. She's so proud of all our military, and is so filled with pride when our flag goes by..she stands at attention with her little hand over her heart..and she knows you do also.
Happy Valentines Day everyone..I hope it's filled with everyone and everything you love..
And a quick p.s. Thank you everyone for their concern and for the get well wishes..That alone made me feel better and has kept me going.....

    I hope you get better soon. My hubby and I have both been suffering with a "bug"....he had it first, then kindly gave it to ME! We're both still hacking and just wears us out.

    The SNOW is just awful...we're getting more tonight and tomorrow,too. I'm ready for tulips!

    Have a great Pink Sat! Dana

    Happy Pink Saturday & Valentine♥s day!

    I hope you're feeling better soon.


  14. Oh, CC! That is so cute! I would love nothing more than a shot at winning, but I am on giveaway restriction. See, Claudie told me I won too many before Christmas (that's right, blame it on Claudie! LOL!), and I've decided to give others my chance at winning. That is so cute that believe me, I wish I could throw my hat in the ring! Someone is going to be a mighty happy camper when they win that major cuteness!!!

    Happy Valentine's Day Pink Saturday! You are a sweetheart to offer this lovely needlecase, but you are always a sweetheart...


    Sheila :-)

  27. Oh CC, I'm so sorry to hear you're still not well! I really feel for you. It's no fun being sick, especially when it won't give up and go away. Your little Sunbonnet Sue is adorable. I've always had a soft spot for her. Some day, (when I've finished all the rest of my projects) I'd love to do a quilt in redwork of her. I can't believe you got that much snow in Texas, of all places! Here in Pennsylvania, we've had four feet in the last week. It's been a long time since we've had storms like this. Please get well soon, and take care of yourself! Hugs, Terri
