HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! I've got all kinds of reds to share on this day of love, including some gifts from bloggy friends. That valentine above is my absolute favorite, because it was given to me by my parents when I was little!
I found these canisters at a thrift store a while ago, and after realizing that I had no room for them, I always meant to sell them. Now they hold pet food, and it's the official Pet Feeding Station! There's cat food in the big one, birdseed and millet in the other two for the parakeets. The trash can underneath holds more cat food. The pretty crocheted potholders are from a giveaway that I won from Nancy Jo. More on her in a minute!
I'm pretty sure that these paper dolls were originally my sister's. I loved spending hours playing with them! I wonder why, when I had tons of Barbies as well. Maybe because it was easier to put clothes on them? Anyway, there's a bunch of other paper dolls in that box too, that I'll share another time. Isn't the box itself the cutest?!
My sweet pal Jackie, of Once Upon A Fairyland, sent me these. Just because! I especially love that tray on the left, with all the deer....
These were also in the box. I can't wait to craft with them!
Ok, I don't think that there's any red in this shot, but I had to share it all. She really gets how I love decorating for every holiday!
I also won this pretty beaded purse from Nancy Jo, and I've tucked a couple of vintage valentines in it. It's hanging on the door to the attic, the only glass doorknob in the house. Who decided, when this house was built 85 years ago, that the pretty glass doorknob should go on the door leading to the attic??? Holly, who also has one lone glass doorknob in her house, will appreciate this shot!
I also received this bag from Nancy Jo. Look at the little red hearts on the umbrella!
And inside the bag were all of these gorgeous buttons! Lots of crafting possibilities there. Can we all stop what we're doing for just a moment and thank all of the women in the past who so frugally snipped off every single button from a garment before getting rid of it?!
