Having lots of fun today....
I have been busy making pretty Valentines with my stash of vintage goodies!!
I can't decide which one of these I love more. One is for my sweet mama, so I will let her pick which one she likes the best. I love the checked paper I used on the sides.I started out just planning to cover one vintage cardboard candy box, but I was liking it so much, I just used the top of the box for one of these Valentines and the bottom for the other one.I was lucky enough to go to my favorite antique malls in town this weekend. (All 5 of them!!) My excuse was looking for presents for my sweet mama's upcoming birthday. I had so much fun and found lots of little goodies. These are a few of my favorite finds. (Look away, Mama! Some of these things may find their way into your present!)
Michelle, your valentines are gorgeous!!! and you really did find some sweet goodies!!!
I love your style! Simply beautiful.

WHAT BEAUTIFUL VALENTINES YOU CREATE. I LOVE, LOVE YOUR BLOG...I AM GOING TO ADD A LINK TO YOUR BLOG FROM MINE.
I AM A NEW BLOGGER BUT HAVE MET THE MOST AWESOME WOMEN.
Hi Michelle! I just wanted to say hello!
Your Valentines are sooo cute! That checked paper was such a lovely touch!
These are really precious!
those hand made valentines are great! i stumbled upon your blog. awesome ideas. just wanted to share these simple out of the (chocolate) box activities to do for Vday. I hate the standard flowers, and im sure others do as well.
1.Write love notes to one another, even if it’s just the word “I love you” Leave them where your partner will find them during the day.
2. Share a romantic meal. Prepare it together. Put candles on the table. Dress up. Play your favorite music. Unplug the phone and enjoy each other.
3. Give your partner the day off. Do your partner’s chores for the day. Let them do whatever they want for the whole day. When they get home, they’ll be ready to thank you.
4. Be spontaneous. Do something fun and silly, enter a kissing contest, like the Netflix Greatest Kiss Contest.
5. Find yourselves a new hobby, a chance for the two of you to spend time together . You can try a couples sports league, cooking workshops or dance classes.
6. Pack a picnic complete with candles and wine and take it to a rooftop for a romantic midnight rendezvous.
7. Give your Relationship a fresh start with a fresh coat of paint. Redecorate your bedroom to be more inviting and have an incentive to spend more time there.
8. Go on a second honeymoon. If getting out to a tropical island isn’t a feasible option, no problem....just check into a nice hotel one weekend, for some room service, relaxation and romance.
9. Embrace your inner teenager and do something fun....go to a theme park, stay out all night dancing or go to a midnight movie.
10. Exchange gifts, but set the rule that it has to be something homemade, like a mixed tape or a card. That way it will come from the heart and mean much more.
What a beautiful job you did on the lovely heart valentines Michelle. They are so pretty as are your new treasures you found at the antique mall. You seem to have such good luck in finding such sweet and pretty things. I have an award for you on my blog. Stop by and pick it up when you get a chance. Take care.... Kim
