Vintage Valentines Banner & Other Things


Vintage Valentines Banner


What to do with the vintage Valentine collection? I certainly didn’t want to put holes in them or alter their appearance in any way. It would have been fun to have cute clips, but regular ol’ paper clips was all I had, so they just had to do. The banner isn’t anything earth shattering. Boring, actually. But it’s fun for me to look at and, well, what else can I do with them?? I have a bunch of moveable Valentines I haven’t figured out what to do with, yet and still a bunch more of the regular ones. So fun to be a hoarder! Sometimes.

I’ve been playing with an old drawer, too. It should be perfect for this kind of display, but I don’t quite have it right just yet.

First attempt:


Valentine Box

Hmmm… Not as bad in the picture as it looked in person – How’s that for a change? – but kinda jumbled, mixed styles and more than the eye can take in. Let’s try something else.

Valentine Box



Getting better, but still not quite what I want.

The beaded heart in the middle is one my friend Jeri gave me that an older lady had given her. It had belonged to the lady. I love, love, love it! 

So stay tuned to see if the box gets better or goes by the wayside.


And here’s some great news. Tiffany is starting a blog! We’re working on it this afternoon. Hopefully she’ll go live tonight. She’s excited, I’m excited and you’re in for a real treat! I’ll post a link as soon as I have it.
