Nan's Valentine Gift

Nan's Valentine Gift!

I received a Valentine gift in the mail yesterday from my dear friend, Nan of Retired in Alaska blog fame.

Hubby and I visited with Bob and Nan during our trip to Alaska last summer.  

Meeting Bob and Nan for lunch in Homer,  Alaska! 
Nan's adorable Fairy Cottage

I want one!

When I turned Nan's gift package over to open it I found this written on the back by Nan!

Nan and Bob have two Weimaraners, Kalen (the puppy) and Pan (big brother).

Kalen wanted me to know that he helped Nan wrap my gifts.  (Thank you Kalen!)  

I'm sure big brother, Pan, supervised.

Aren't these cute gift labels?

I love them!
One side of the Valentine Tag!

Isn't the Hand-Made stamp adorable!

I'm a FAN of yours too Nan!
Two beautifully crocheted butterflies.

They have magnets on the back.  I put them on our refrigerator.

I've never had such a nice tag...it will hang in a special place in my home (and in my heart)!

Thank you Nan for your thoughtfulness in thinking of me.  

Such lovely gifts...and being hand-made makes it even more special to me.

Please hop over and visit Nan's blog (here).  

You'll get to meet two adorable doggies and a very special couple and learn all about their retired life in our great state of Alaska.
