Valentine Crafting...I finally found a little time to create some Valentine goodies while baby napped!I made this altered heart candy box. I used sheet music, a vintage flower, seam binding, a button and some broken jewelry.
This is the first altered bottle I've ever tried. I love it and now I can't wait to find more bottles to use!
And I forgot to show you this lovely vintage monogrammed sugar bowl I found. It's missing it's lid which makes it a perfect piece to display flowers or other pretties.Have a lovely day, girls!

Fabulous finds~Hello, dear ones! I'm so exited about my newest find! I still had some Christmas money my sweet husband gave me so I took a little trip to the antique mall. I've been wanting a vintage scale for a long time and I have finally found the perfect one...and in my favorite color too!I love the way the bottom is scalloped and how pretty the numbers are. And it's just the right amount of shabby!
I also found these gorgeous vintage buttons! These kind are so hard to find!
Speaking of hard to find , I also found some vintage wallpaper (really cheap!)This first piece is my favorite!
They were all small scraps,but perfect for art projects!
Aren't they lovely?
I can't wait to use them!Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

I managed to squeeze in a bit of time to create....this sweet Valentine cone...which I just had to hang on my aqua door...which inspired me to bring out some more pink and romantic treasures...like these sweet pillows....and this pretty heart I made a couple years ago.I actually made two of them. Both were made from one old Valentine candy box, one from the lid and one from the bottom of the box.I sent this one to my sweet mama.
Now I'm feeling inspired to make more of these hearts because I think they are just so pretty! Hopefully I will have some to finished to show you next time.

Winter Whites!
Lots of white, some tarnished silver and a little sparkle! I'm joining Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday.I took down the Christmas and decided to do a Winter White theme on my hutch.
Redecorating my hutch is always such fun.My lovely dress form, beautiful in simple white and silver and rhinestones. I named her when I first got her, but I must not have loved the name because I can't remember what it was! I think she needs a new one!
Love lace in a jar, or anywhere really. The key is not really old, but so pretty. I think they still might be selling them at Hobby Lobby. If so, I think I need to go get some more!
Pretty silver trays and bowls. I think silver looks so gorgeous teamed with white!
My tiara. I hope you are not getting sick of seeing it in so many of my photos. I just think it is so pretty!!!
More pretty lace, silver and whites.
And my vintage clocks.... I just can't get enough of them! I just noticed they are all about a quarter after the hour. Hmmm- are they trying to tell my something?
Brown transferware plate and a sweet photo my mama sent me. (And other Hobby Lobby key!)
Now I'm off to pull out my little pink tree and plan some Valentines creations!
