Some of our Valentines

Hello, friends! I wanted to share a few of the valentines we have displayed around the house.  Kara found this little vintage valentine above in a book we purchased at a church rummage sale. Don't you love surprises like that?  Don't you love that holder even more?  If so, visit my friend Petite Michelle Louise.
My friend, Kim, made this adorable tag in a bag for me for Valentines Day. I love how she used the vintage playing card to make this and love the rooster even more!
Here's a valentine I made last year for a few friends. Had to keep one for myself! I love to layer lace and paper, give it a quick sew and voila! That crumpled seam binding is a favorite. I'm almost out and cant' remember where I got it!
This one is a favorite since I made these with Kara's help.  She did a great job last year helping me design this one. We made a few. Some were more heavily distressed, which she loves!
Aren't these adorable?  My friend Kelley made these for me. I love the papers she chooses for her projects. I think I have a set of blocks for nearly every holiday from Kelley. 
Here's a blast from the past!  We have a local specialty scrapbook store. I love to shop there. They do "make and takes" sometimes. This one is probably 4-5 years old.  We made our basic page and then, of course, came home and added all kinds of fun details.  I love to break this out on Valentines Day and put it in my altered clipboard by the front door.  The little strips of paper have notes to my husband letting him know the things I love about him. 

I hope everyone is having a great week.  I'm hoping to do a little shopping this weekend at a new antique store in town. I'll be sure to take you along.  Thanks for visiting! xoxo

  2. I always enjoy seeing your door knob holder and what you have displayed. Cute stuff, Vicki. I have those exact same playing cards and combined them with bingo cards, crepe paper hearts and other textures to create Valentine cards for a swap I participated in.

    Happy soon-to-be Valentines!

  13. I love your Valentines, Vicki! My absolute favorite is the vintage one; I adore how you embellished it.

    I'm glad that you shared the link to your friends store again! The last time I was there, the piece I wanted was on reserve for someone already, and I never got one. I'm off to try again!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
