The Valentine Tree....I have been wanting one of those small white feather style trees for a long time now. I have seen them used to display Valentines and Easter decorations and they always looks so cute. But I have never found one in person and online they seem to cost as much or more than my white Christmas tree- plus shipping! So this year I just left up my Christmas tree and made it a Valentines tree! I wasn't too sure about it- it seemed a bit too weird (even for me!). But my boys love it and so it will stay...I guess. But I'm getting pretty tired of pulling Dylan away from it every 5 minutes! Anyway, it looks better in close ups and it's not really finished so I will just show you a few my favorite parts.I love vintage valentines! The first one is my favorite. It came in an envelope addressed to "Edward". Next ist the sweetest Mary Engelbriet envelope and a vintage playing card.
The adorable little Valentine below was a gift from my sweet and talented friend Mel! Isn't it the cutest??
I used candy canes on the tree because they fit in so well- who says candy canes are only for Christmas?
A glittery red heart garland my sweet mama gave me and a Mary Engelbriet card. Have I ever told you how much I love Mary E.? I fell in love with her artwork when I was a teenager way back in the 80's.
A sweet vintage postcard.
Doves, sparkling key (the key to your heart, of course!)
A cute little flapper lady dressed up for a Valentine's party.I have been more into pastels for the past few years, but I have and always will love red. This hatbox is a favorite find. I think the toile wallpaper used to cover it is so beautiful! And this vintage scrapbook is such a great shade of dark red.And another one of my fun thrift store finds! A super cute Mary E. pillow that is in perfect condition!I'm hoping to find time to make some cute Valentines this year. I haven't created anything since this time last year because I have been busy with this little sweet heart.Meet me here tomorrow for Silver Sunday!!
