Friendship Gifts

Hello y'all! How can it be February already? My garage is still a mess from Christmas! I'm dropping in to say hello and show y'all my February "Friendship Gifts."

The cute little red scalloped boxes are by Martha Stewart. I found them after Christmas at Michael's for practically nothing!



The little compartments are lined with red polka dot tissue paper and I filled them with some Valentine sweets...

I tied some of the boxes with "Happy Valentines Day" ribbon, some with red-heart ribbon, and some with red gingham ribbon. These will be great "Friendship Gifts," Valentine tokens of love, or sweet hostess gifts!

I'll be back soon to participate in Laurie's Valentine Party and Barb's Tabletop Tuesday. Thank you for stopping in to visit with me.

Hi Miss Janice! Don't feel bad...my Christmas decorations haven't made it out of my garage, either! It's too darn cold out there! lol I love your February gifts...so clever! I missed those little boxes at Michaels. I bet there wil be a run on them now! I hope you are doing well and staying warm down there in the Sunshine State! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

Welcome back Miss Janice -- we missed you -- thank you so much for stopping by and your sweet comments. It's hard to say good-by to such a wonderful man as my FIL and there will be some tough days ahead because we'll miss him so...but the memories will always be sweet and dear.

I always enjoy your friendship gifts that you post (as do many others) -- you are such a treasure here in the wonderful neighborhood of blog.

you always have such cute gifts for parties and friends! How very smart of you to buy "red" boxes and save them for Valentine's Day - I am going to add that to my Christmas notes for next year -to remind me to check the sales after christmas for "red" thanks for the tip!
