Wrapping Up Pretty Things...I've been busy wrapping up my sweet mama's birthday presents!
I can't show you what's inside till she receives her box of goodies in the mail, but here's a clue:
Each package has a tag with a hint of what is inside! One has velvet...

one has sparkle...
and one has flowers! (but isn't the French word "fleurs" even more fun?)I love the using the plain paper. I think it really makes the embellishments stand out.
I've also been doing a little bit of decorating for Valentine's day.
Just a little bit here and there. Some vintage red, pink, and white buttons on a sweet little plate.
My vintage Valentine candy boxes. Aren't they gorgeous?! And here's a romantic basket full of dreamy vintage goodness! I still want to make some Valentine crafts. Hopefully soon! Hopefully before Valentine's Day has come! Sometimes the holidays pass by before I get crafting! Does that ever happen to you? Next time I'll show what vintage treasures were hiding in those boxes. I'm linking up with Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday!
Michelle xoxo

When I was a child, I was in LOVE with those candy boxes!

Love the vintage flowers. Where on earth did you find such beautiful ones? I am looking for some and can never seem to find them. Even my friend who haunts the flea markets says they're darned near impossible to find nowadays.

Wow what stunningly pretty and thoughtful gifts, and I'm in love with that valentine card! What decade to you think it's from? I'm thinking maybe 20's-30's
