Vintage Valentines



I copied old Valentines, embellished them with glitter, and then tucked them into little vignettes & displays around the house, such as the bathroom (above) and living room.



In a vintage purse among roses & pearls....














Tucked into a little basket of ivy, with
roses & ribbon.

Oh I LOVE the cards they are so beautiful! The glitter looks fabulous on them. I'm crazy about glitter! I have my 97 year old Grandmothers old glass glitter & love to use it. Thanks for sharing :-} ~Mary~

The cards are lovely & I like how you revitalized them and then set them out for display in unusual settings! Very creative!

I am just waiting for the day when my preschoolers comment to their friends about how we don't have conventional art in our home too!

Those are just beautiful! I think Valentines is such a nice holiday. The colors are so pretty, especially against the drab background of winter.
Love your blog!
