Well, my foray back into the blogging world hasn't been as seamless as I would have liked. I've been trying to keep up with Reader, leaving a few comments and I still feel I'm falling short. It's not helping that, I have TWO blogs, let me tell you. Still, I am determined to get in this post before Valentine's Day is over!
The Hoosier cabinet was spiffed up a bit, with mostly vintage bird Valentine's.
Hanging them off this ribbon allowed me to show off quite a few.
I was scrambling for an idea for the few baseball themed Valentine's I have. This idea is very mediocre, but it has potential. It's a handmade pencil holder I bought at a garage sale for 50¢ and the copper rods that came out of my library card catalog cabinet. It's been up for a few weeks and I've never taken the time to tweak it....never got a better idea.
Thanks so much to Sonya @ Dime Store Thrift for this wonderful wreath idea. I finally got around to making one. The whole time I was constructing it I was certain it would end up in the trash! I didn't think I had enough bulbs, I was unsure of the bulb placements. I ended up loving it! Truth be told, though, my technique leaves a lot to be desired. When I hung it up, everything shifted and two balls fell off. Another is broken and still holding on. This picture is AFTER this happened.....so don't look too close! I figure I'll fix it after the season.
Whew! Mission accomplished! Feels good.
PS- After checking out my post, it seems to me my pictures are blurry. Plus, the pictures were a bit on the small side. I changed a few things and made them bigger....are they too big? I'd love to have your input.
Of course it's pillow time
