Valentine Vignette and Recycled Heart box

 Hello my Friends!

Today I decided to fill my cubby for Valentines' Day.

The weather is wonderful- it's been 80 degrees- 

so I guess for me the Winter Decor was very short lived !





I call it my cubby- It came from Pottery Barn years ago. 

When it went on clearance, I thought I needed it!



I wanted to make a pretty candy box.

I found these small candy boxes at the Dollar Tree.



I just covered the lid and bottom with

scrapbook paper

Measure the sides and cover with paper or lace.


I used ribbon to decorate the edge, top and bottom.

I had a lot of ribbon in my stash.

It worked fine.

My paper and ribbon had small hints of yellow

along with the pink.



                                                 I wanted to make some fake chocolates to display

                                                          but my clay was dried out.

I  found this lip balm at the Dollar Tree and the 99cent Store.

 

I thought it looked like a piece of chocolate candy.



I put it in a candy wrapper.



I added a Tulle bow and a rose to the lid.



I have lots of vintage single clip on earrings.

I went through them to find pinks and reds.

The earrings stand up on their own, and are great for holding

small notes or Valentines!









I stood the valentine on the box along with the "chocolate".





Here's another box.

I used a page from an old Sears and Roebuck Catalogue I have.

My Husband loves cherries.




 



That's his Valentine!

He can only have fake candy for now :)

He has to wait!










I brought out one of my Nancy Ann dolls.

She has a red polka dot dress but I was worried

about changing her.

My collection came from my babysitter, she gave them to me

when she out grew dolls.

I have loved them ever since.


Do any of you remember Nancy Ann?




Have a wonderful week!

    1. Debra,
      Thank you so much. I was amazed that the earrings worked so well as clips. I can't believe women wore them. They really pinch !
      I'm SO glad you visited today. Come back soon.
