a little valentine decorating, oh yeah.. and a winner!


Well, I dont have as much valentine stuff as I do for other holidays, but I do have two bins full.
All of the sweet valentine ornaments on this tree above are from swaps over the last two years.. theres more, not all are on this tree!
This wool and felted heart ornie above is one that I made this year for an ornament swap. I wanted to find or make wings for it, but havent yet!

I actually have several valentine trees.. I couldnt find this one this year. I had put it away with the easter stuff. I was so happy when I found it! And this little birdie finds its way onto all my holiday trees. Its one of my most favorite little things I own!

Found that little gold spun nest after christmas 75% off somewhere.. and was so glad, because I had to have it!

Meet valerie the valentine fairy! She looks a bit like a viking! ha.. its valerie the viking valentine fairy.. err.. or not..

Just a cute little tree I found at one of my most favorite places.. TJ Max!
do you recieve the gooseberry patch catalog? OmG.. every time it comes I want to order hundreds of dollars worth of stuff! last year I did order a set of these little glittered wooden valentines.. the bunny is my favorite!


Heres my very huge giant collection of vintage valentines! yeah, I have so many! (really only what you see here.. I NEED to get more!)


This pic above isnt really very valentinesy at all is it.. but I keep my snowmen out through winter, so they are valentines visitors! And really this is a sweet picture of Frannie and you know that Frannie, is Figgys valentine!


ok.. thats all.. well there are a bunch more, but I dont feel like uploading anymore! besides, I think I'm having a major freaken hot flash or something.. I need to go get a drink and take half of my clothes off or something!
OOpsie I'm back! I forgot.. I have to draw a winner for my giveaway! ok.. hang on.. let me do this.. I'll be right back!
OKeedokie.. the random number generator picked number 4~ thats you Diane!
I have no idea what I'm going to make yet or exactly when it'll be done.. but send me your address and I'll be cooking up something for you!
oh.. and those darn kittens are soooooo cuteeeee todayyyyy!!!!!!
Ok all.. I should do something constuctive

My goodness, you have so many lovely Valentine things... sigh. I really don't do the seasonal decorating thing as I should. I will just content myself with enjoying yours, vicariously♥
