Love the one signing L-O-V-E! valcards I love it when we have little gifties that are made right here in Ann Arbor - like these hand-stitched hearts made with vintage felted blanket wool.  Great to attach to a package with a little present for your sweetheart on February 14th! hearts.felted I always look for old skeleton keys.  They are getting harder to find these days.... but I found some!  Just in time for Valentine's Day.
