During one of those times I decided to make a Valentine tree by making simple, country felt hearts. I suppose I used a pattern to cut the hearts out, but that's certainly not necessary...it was truly a freehand project to use what I had on hand.
|This is an umbrella stand next to the piano, where we have|
those kinda new lighted twig things and some real curly willow twigs.
I added the hearts to the twigs to create our
Valentine tree this year.
|I wanted them to look VERY :) handmade-looking, almost childlike, like old samplers.|
Then I stuffed them with batting.
|For some, like the white one, I used beading on the heart itself, and for some |
I used beads to hold the ribbon or tulle hanger.
|My love of roses extends to when they get to the "vintage" stage--aren't women like roses? As |
don't we get more beautiful, albeit it in a less traditional way?
I used them for an earlier post, Romantic Vintage Table HERE .
|My first china cabinet of the year was simple and "peaceful," HERE -- my post-Christmas senses |
just needed a little break--but now, color is creeping back into my decorating.
Wishing you a happy Valentine's Day, filled with LOVE.
