Valentine Crafts For REDnesday!
It's about to get very Valentine-y over here! I intend to start decorating for Valentine's Day soon, but I'm kind of enjoying the lull between holidays right now. But now does seem like a good time to do some crafting celebrating the day of love!
I knew I wanted to make something in one of those huge paper mache hearts that you can get at Hobby Lobby, so when I found these vintage Napco kissing angels at a thrift store last week, I knew right away that they were just what I was looking for.
Oh look! Look in their hands! They're about to exchange hearts!
This is the lid from the heart box, and I call this one Sweetheart Cottage. But it needs something more. Any ideas?
This old candy box came from the thrift store last week too. Did you know that there was a period of several years where I wouldn't eat chocolate, because I heard that it could trigger migraines, which I suffered from? Lately I've been eating a few pieces a day, and do you know that I've been ok? And do you know that this Valentine's Day I'm going to make up for lost time in a big way?! Mr. Old Glory, if you're reading this, I want a big old heart-shaped box of chocolates this year!
If you'd like to see more reds, head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our lovely hostess!
