It has taken me so long to get the New Year's decor off of our mantel. So, I decided to go straight to Valentine decor.
I'm sure there is nobody else who would go to the trouble of dragging an old window out of our storage shed; cleaning it up; putting it up on the mantel, and then cover it up to the point that you can't even tell it is a window!
Some of my favorite, vintage Valentine cards are on the window. I love these cards that have the eyes that move when you move an arm of the character. All of the vintage "eye-movers" were a gift from my friend, Charlie Ann. The one with the boy with a dog and cat is a reproduction.
Charlie Ann also gifted me with this vintage, china-headed Valentine girl flower pic. I've displayed her in a small cherub urn.
Do you already have some of these battery-powered candles? I'm usually the last person to know about something new, so you probably have them. My sister-in-law, Brenda, gave me these for Christmas. When they are lit, they look so realistic.
See how the candle flame is attached to a wire? When it is lit, the flame moves around, and it looks amazingly real.
This sweet bag was a purchase, last year, from the Etsy at Creative Home Expressions.
By simply sticking the end of a branch through a doily, I added a heart to the Peacock feathers.
Thank you for visiting me today. laurie
