Amour...
Hello dear ones! Here is a fun Valentine vignette I created with some favorite finds.
I was inspired by this adorable little pale pink cabinet I found at the antique store.It's a perfect place to store my art supplies and show off my favorite vintage goodies on top!
I haven't used my cloche for a while, so I dusted it off and added these pretties inside.I adore vintage rhinestones. These beauties are heading off to California because they are some of my birthday presents for my dear mama!I also found this sweet vintage Valentine to give her.
The girl reminds me of me when I was young and I love the colors and style of it.
Here is the inside. What it says is perfect. We love all the same things, so we really do agree on most everything. And I am definitely very happy when she does come to Texas to "play" with me! We love going to antique stores together!
I also found these pretty pieces of lace and mother of pearl buttons and buckles for her. I think they are so pretty.A few more finds for my mama's birthday. A vibrantly colored millinery flower and bingo card.As I was leaving the antique store, I saw a huge basket full of lace sitting on the floor by the register that was not there when I had arrived. Of course, I sat on the floor and dug through them for a long time, untangling them and finding the prettiest pieces. The only trouble was, there were no prices. When the dealer showed up, she could not have been sweeter and she gave the flower for free and told me I could have the huge pile of lace I found for only $2!!!My new pink cabinet is the perfect place to store them, but they are so pretty I may have to keep the drawer open! For some reason I always have a hard time finding pink buttons, so I was happy to find these lovelies!
I'm linking up with Vintage Inspiration Friday with Debra from Common Ground. Wishing you a lovely week girls!
Michelle xoxo

Once again you've outdone yourself Michelle, putting together such a beautiful Valentines vignette.

Your Mother is one very lucky lady to be getting all of those gorgeous treasures you have found for her and what a steal on that pretty lace. I can't believe you only had to pay two dollars for that. You are definately one lucky shopper.

Hope all is going well with you and that you have a great week!!
