Valentine's Day decorating

Here's a bit more of my Valentine's Day decor.
 The Eiffel tower and some bling always add a bit of romance!
 I'm obsessed with paper straws for some reason. They are just so vintage-looking and colorful and fun! I also love the trophy cups I have displayed them in. They are faux silver with faux tarnish, but I think they are just as lovely and thankfully within my price range! I found them at Marshalls.
 I used my Christmas cash from my sweet in-laws to buy these super cute scalloped cake plates from Cost Plus. I love them stacked like this.
 I couldn't resist dressing up my vintage mustache men for Valentine's Day. Party hats and flowers for thier sweethearts. Aren't the vintage candy boxes so gorgeous? They are defintely one of my favorite things to collect.
A lovely vintage half doll with vintage keys and a glittered  heart.  
This  light blue heart is huge and so pretty!  It would hold a lot of chocolate! Some girl was probably very happy to recieve it way back when. I love the photo of the girl sitting in her pretty party dress and corsage. She looks like a lovely wallflower waiting to be asked to dance.  I see the little ones getting into trouble, I'd better say goodbye now. Linking up with today!

Happy New Year!

Hello and happy new year, bloggy friends! What do you mean, who am I? It's only been 6 months! haha! I've missed blogging, but babies take so much time. Like...all of it. I'm lucky to get my shower and the dishes and laundry done, let alone decorate, craft, and photograph it all. Our family had a lovely Christmas and my sweet boys gave me some really adorable red and white polka dot things!
I have manged to do a bit of Valentine decorating, but it's so overcast lately that it's hard to take good photos. I do have a couple of cute things to show you.  I found these adorable valentine mine clothespins at Target.
A couple of pretty vintage hankies, a gift from my sweet friend Paula.
A favorite vintage candy box and vintage valentine.
Gorgeous striped straws and flowers found at Michaels.
And last, a couple of dapper gentlemen I dressed up for Valentine's day. 
I adore vintage mustache man photos so much. I need to find more!
Hopefully we will get some sun soon so I can show you more of my Valentine's day decor. Linking up with today!
