Sweet Heart...

Thank you to all of you who left such lovely comments on my Heart's Desire post yesterday. The winner of my drawing will receive this heart - handcrafted by me - especially for this giveaway.
I'm calling it "Sweet Heart".
It features a cream colored fabric, silver-lined glass beads, sweet pink roses with another sprinkling of glass beads, and finished with a Swarovski crystal heart. I cut and sewed the heart, and stuffed it with organic wool, then I hand sewed all the embellishments to the heart.

As promised, I chose the winner of my surprise giveaway using the Random Number Generator, so without further delay...
You can click on this photo for a closer look, but the winner is (#2) Kim from My Irish Rose Creations. I recently purchased one of her stunning creations, so if you haven't seen her work yet, please visit her blog. She's also hosting her own Visions of Spring Giveaway, so you have a chance to win by leaving a comment while you're there! I am honored to send one of my creations to her. This is what she wrote:

Donna, your post is certainly thought provoking and found myself wondering if I should laugh or cry. My first thought was "a day without snow"...but I get so much accomplished on days like this. Then on a much more personal level, my thoughts turned to my husband, whom I lost this past October following a four year battle with cancer. Certainly, just one more day with him is always my heart's desire, but I was so blessed with the time we had together that there's nothing more I would say or do in one more day. So for now, my heart's desire would be to find a little house in the country with a craft studio and land enough for a garden and all the pets my kids keep bringing home..lol.

Kim, I'm embarrassed to say that I neglected to save your address when I received your lovely package. (I knew I'd get it again the next time I place an order with you!) Please email me so that I can send your gift to you. Know that you have a friend in Florida who thinks of you fondly.
