Hello, my friends!

Just a quick little post today to share some sweet little Valentines with you…

…a couple of easy peasy projects for loved ones made with images from Crafty Secrets' new, fabulous & downloadable Vintage Valentine Kit

…topped with some soft pink seam binding and a pretty vintage button, nothing could be simpler…

…just a bit of baker’s twine from Vintage Street Market around the ribbon for a bit of texture & color…and that’s it!

And now for a very vintage Valentine…

Valentine 5_edited-1 {don’t you just love fairytale cottages?  I do!!!}

This was made using the GORGEOUS free downloadable image from Crafty Secrets available here…it’s an Art Deco lover’s {me!} dream come true!

I added a lot of iridescent sparkle to the flowers on the image which you really can’t see here…another gloomy, almost-rainy day here in California…

…vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, very old & velvety millinery flowers and a bit of lace finish it off…

“You make my heart sing”, it says…and that’s a pretty good thing, isn’t it?!

That’s all for me today—I’ll be back later this week with some more Valentine ideas & the winner to my birthday giveaway—it’s not too late to enter if you’re interested!  {and thank-you all for the very sweet happy birthday wishes!}
