Valentine's Crafts

How are you doing today?  Are you keeping warm?  It has been frigging freezing all week here in Northern VA.!  I'm a weather wimp.  I hate the cold.  I'll do what I have to do--but I'll whine about it!

Between the weather and my lingering cold, all I wanted to do this week was hibernate.  So I didn't really get anything major done.  I did come to a conclusion on where to move Mr. P's.  I'm going to check this weekend to make sure the space I want is still available before I give my notice.

About the only other thing I accomplished was making some Valentine's do-hickeys.

I made some hangers.

And some handmade Valentines.



I got this  great Valentine's Fairy graphic from the Graphics Fairy and put it in a little frame.

And I made some instant Valentine's Day decor with these handmade hearts in milkglass bud vases.  I also painted a little heart box.

I took some of them out to Mr. P's today, where I set up a little Valentine's Day display.

Valentine's gifts for her on the right.

And for him on the left.

Personally I think vintage is an appropriate gift for any holiday!

I also have these book wreaths.

Love the sparkly heart in the middle!

And these little primitive hearts.

Plus a couple of appropriate lavender sachets.

Now I'm in the Valentine's Day mood, I've decided I need to do a Valentine's mantel in my home.  Stay tuned for that endeavor!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend--and stay warm!
