Hearts, Love, Valentines and More Mary Engelbreit

Sister Lori here with some things from my collecting.
I found this recently, a tissue box holder that I made Mother some years ago. She loved gingerbread houses and this was my tribute to those for her. I think Tina and Heidi got one too?! I put it to good use in my home.

A side view of the tissue holder.

Working for the Post Office for many years, we periodically were given pins to wear. Here are a few Love stamp ones along with my sick leave pin I was awarded for saving my sick leave and not abusing it. All that sick leave sure came in handy when I was diagnosed with colon cancer, at age 48, 6 years ago.

I used to laminate my favorite stamps and add earring wires and wear them at work.

My good friend gave me this as a gift one Christmas. A rice bag covered with a wonderful Mary Engelbreit fabric.

I found this cute ME mug at a thrift store recently along with one of her pins.

Here are some Valentine candies I found at Big Lots recently. Lovin' the heart shaped Peeps!!

I bought these some time ago. Love Notes by Susan Branch. They are designed to put in your loved ones lunch, briefcase, etc.

A couple more ME boxes:

A calendar I made. Each month has a different background to slide in the acrylic holder, making it reusable every year.

And last but not least, a ME heart-shaped hat box that I was thrilled to find at a thrift store recently.
