Counting down to Valentines...

Although CNY celebrations continue all week long at our house, I've decided to give my blog a makeover in preparation for Valentines. I have a favorite vendor at Changing Thymes (who also happens to be at this etsy site - Honeybees & Roses: Sweet Vintage Treasures) who keeps me well stocked with all sorts of vintage goodies. Last year, I purchased this apron and then attached a few of my favorite vintage Valentine cards with mini clothespins. This apron is now permanently on display on the door of my craft room.

The apron also got a few heart buttons and a new silk flower pin embellished with a Valentine cupcake pick.

As you can imagine, I've got all sorts of Valentine crafts swirling in my head...including a no-strings attached give-away in the near future. I might just even include another valentine-inspired vintage apron. Be sure to check back often!


XOXO

Alright...how would I ever get around to thinking you could use an apron to clip cards to? I love it. The pin and the pick even cuter. Love the new look. Smiles...Renee

What a clever and charming display, as always. Your mind must be a field of wonder where you farm your ideas. I am still trying to decide what I should have done with my Christmas cards.

I just found an apron like that yesterday, but didn't buy it because it wasn't pretty. Now I'm rethinking it! Cute idea!

That's such a creative idea for displaying your Vintage Valentines! I have a ton of them stored away, but this is great inspiration to take them out and find a creative way to display them.

Thanks for sharing on Vintage Thingie Thursday!

How cute. If I start now I may be able to pull together something like this - for Christmas. (yes, I'm a bit slow) Thanks for the wonderful idea.

LBP said...

Holy Cow! Now that is definitely some eye candy!!! I may "borrow" your idea as I have several vintage valentines just kinda sitting around here and there and you display is so much prettier! Thanks for sharing!
