Time for REDnesday over at It's A Very Cherry World! AND, it's time to start decorating for Valentine's Day!
I finally finished the first of three Valentine buntings that I plan on making.
A close-up of the fabrics that I used. All handsewn, but the good news is that I'm going to set my sewing machine by the door, so that I'll remember to take it to Hancock Fabrics and get it fixed this Friday. YAY!
Christmas has mistletoe, and Valentine's Day has the kissing ball! I made this one several years ago, using a styrofoam ball, moss and silk roses. All "ingredients" found at the dollar store. SO easy!
I had a vintage Lefton girl just like this one on my Watch List on Ebay, and when it reached $16, I can't tell you how thrilled I was to spot this one at my favorite thrift store for 50 cents!
Let's head outside for just a second to check out the cherub blow mold hanging beside the back door.
And since it's still Winter, I've left out the sled and our daughter Liz's old skates and made it a little bit Valentine-y.
And here's the start of another project. I sure hope it turns out the way I'm envisioning it. Wish me luck!
If you would like to see more reds, hop over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue hosts REDnesday every week!
