Goodwill and house shopping , all, as well as a slight nod to Valentine's Day.
I have added this wonderful piece by Kana at Kana Creates, the cutest little Bella from Tennessee, that I received as part of a vintage Valentine swap we participated in at A Swap for All Seasons. Promise to post more on this Monday!
Just the perfect extra touch, agreed?
Many of you asked about the paper wreath. I incorporated that into a Valentine entry display. Once again, Goodwill, except for my grandmothers prayer book.
A few candles and some vintage Christmas balls from an after holiday sale at a local antique mall add to the festivity and romance.
Everything in this vignette combined totals under $30.00. These are things collected over time, a dollar or two here and there. Re-combining them constantly is my form of playing with toys.
Here is the paper wreath dressed up with a Valentine I created from bits and pieces laying about in the craftt room. The base is from a cereal box. Packaging is a perfect source for collage board.
Stacking plates and trays adds interest. An old tissue paper heart fold out with a touch of glitter and satin ribbon to fluff it up. Hung inside a
little wire basket it makes a lovely mix of industrial and feminine.
A close up of the wreath and Valentine.
Pretty, shiny, love it.
A vintage Valentine was also included in the package from Kana.
A closer look at the tissue heart. I crave these honeycomb tissue decorations. Remembrances from childhood of special parties and events.
Hope you enjoyed this frugal Valentine display. Go and visit all the vintage and frugal finds out there in the Blog neighborhood. Sometimes it is OK to covet your neighbor's thrifty find!
Have a day filled with pleasures, P.
