Touches of Valentine's around our home and Vintage Valentines for Rednesday and Vintage Thingies Thursday...





I had great plans to make some new Valentine decorations this year but after all I crafted for Christmas, I just didn't have the energy to do it! But I did manage to get a few little touches around the house, some store bought, others I made last year.













I just received this precious beauty from my Mystery Mom at MOPS! It is a paper box adorn with glass glitter. Mystery Mom if you read my blog, I LOVE IT! :-)

Now for a couple of my favorite vintage Valentine postcards....









I actually did find the time to make this Valentine block this year.

Something about those Valentine hand towels just has my heart in a twitter. I bought a new set this year and blogged about it a few days ago. Everything looks wonderful even without the added effort this year. Your house is blessed, Cherie
