Preparing for Valentine’s Day…

Happy Friday!

It never fails, once the Christmas decor is packed away, my mind automatically shifts to the next holiday. Do you do that too? I’m already thinking about pretty pastels and if I should host another Valentine Card-making party this year. Once the red and green is all put away, I get excited about a new color palette!

For this project, I was rummaging through my bin of vintage scraps. Those little bits and pieces that I just love and will find a place for at some point. I think I now have about 3 good sized boxes of these scraps, and doodads,  so I better get busy finding “good places” for them! These little wreaths use very vintage gold tinsel garland, vintage beads from a 1960s necklace and a vintage plastic bell.

The beads have a such a rich color to them! To tie in the bell a bit more, I added a bit of glue to the bottom and dipped it in a mixture of vintage glass glitter.

These “sweet” wreaths will look cute as an ornament on a holiday tree, or tied on top of a box of chocolates. Or, on top of a pretty, organza draw string bag! If you would like a vintage wreath of your own, and one to gift away, these are now available in the Etsy shop HERE. They look like little confections don’t they?

And, I couldn’t resist posting this old valentine that I found in my stash. I think its from the 20s or 30s…regardless of the decade, I don’t think any female would appreciate being referred to as a “load of love!” Ha…makes me smile.

Hope you have a super weekend and make time to get crafty!
