Valentine, vignette, vintage

Hey everyone!  Those of you that have followed me know that I have been cleaning and organizing and Purging (rough word) my home.  Purging is like dieting....it was easy eating all those goodies (shopping for things and accumulating) but rough getting rid of the pounds (the accumulated stuff!).
So I've taken a break and have done a bit of Valentine Decorating.
 I painted an old frame black, covered the back of the frame...the inset with strips of paper and then spelled 'LOVE'.  Next I added paper filler in my glass jars.
Last year I bought at least $25.00 worth of Valentine candy and it looked adorable...but then it disappeared as people came and went.  I went to take a picture and the adorable Valentine candy had disappeared and no one seemed to know what had HAPPENED!  Confusion...'candy? what candy?'  
So this year...paper filler!


 This week I set the table with pink Melmac I found on Etsy...when no one was looking...I bought some here and there...love it! It is so VINTAGE LOOKING.

I googled "free printables, Vintage Valentines" and found some adorable vintage Valentine postcards. Printed this one off and put it in an old vintage frame I spray painted red.

Below is a pillow  I just added to my Etsy! Soft and sweet and perfect for Valentine's day.

Have a beautiful day and a blessed week
Debbie

your home looks so festive. Maybe I should try the paper instead of candy? No one here to eat it so it get thrown out!
