Handmade and Vintage Valentines Around my house!

This was last years Valentine decoration.  I pulled it out again.
It was a great paper craft!
One of two cards I made with this lovely image, from the graphics fairy.  This one was sent to Indulge yourself's blog for a Valentine's Day swap.  And the other is to be given away in my fab giveaway for Valentine's day.  Be sure to check it out in the post below and get entered in for the drawing!

One of my excellent signs made by Kristin from signssalvage.blogspot.com  We even share the same birthday!


This is the front of four Valentine ornaments I made for the swap also.
The back side of the same ornament
Another one of Kristin's wonderful signs sent to me for last year's birthday.  I just love her vintage signs on recycled boards.
Another quite old Valentine card which I framed.
Just had to throw this in there.  It is a sweet music box from Switzerland which plays Lara's theme.  (I love song from Dr. Zhivago)
and one more. . . . .
My first two grandbabies captured in this adorably sweet double heart frame.  They are both 9 years old now!

I love all the vintage Valentines stuff. It looks so pretty--one of my favorite holidays. Chocolates, flowers and love..what could be better?!

Just plain lovely! I stopped decorating for V-Day when my kids stopped sending Valentines in school, but the sheer love of pink and red has dragged me back. Your pictures are an inspiration toward that also! I'm totally stealing the tucking vintage Vals here and there idea. Nice way to actually see what I've collected! :OD

I used to get so excited for Christmas because it was the only time I really decorated for a special day. These past years of blogging have been so much fun as others have inspired me to decorate all year round! Valentine's has become one of my favorite times of year now. What's not to love?
