My Vintage Valentines

Wow, two posts in one day! With Valentine's Day being only two days away I thought I would post some pictures of my decorations. You might not know this about me but I like old, vintagey decorations. Oh, wait what am I talking about...I love all vintage things.

I found  these vintage Valentine cards at an antique mall that were surprisingly cheap (no more than $2.00 a piece). I had bought the twine and the hearts from the Dollar Tree.  The hearts were actually garland that was hooked together.  I took the hearts off the Dollar Tree garland and added them to my garland.  I had some red fabric scraps that I tied around the bows and bought the tiny clothes pins from Wal-Mart in the craft section. I added the garland to a shelf in my daughter's bedroom. I love decorating her room as well as the rest of the house with holiday stuff.



The little girl is my favorite, she kind of reminds me of my little girl!


I thought the light above our kitchen sink could use a little love. I got the doily, heart and twine idea from Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy with her mason jar decorations. You can use double sided tape to make the doily and heart stay and then wrap it in twine.

These mason jars have some kind of lights in them from October to February. I usually put orange lights in them during the fall months. The hearts are the garland from the Dollar Tree.


This little white dish was a Goodwill find from my last visit. I bought a bag of sparkly hearts from Wal-Mart and filled the bowl. I thought it was a nice pop of color for the little bowl. 


Do you like vintage decorations as much as I do? :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by The 2 Seasons. I love your vintage Valentines. It reminds me of being in elementary school and making a Valentine's Day box to friends/classmates could deliver their cards to me. So much fun!!
