Another Valentine Project Finished!



After making my Valentine basket for my table, I decided that I needed a bit of color in the corner of the room. I found an idea on Pinterest using a tree branch with some primitive ornaments. I thought it would be perfect to put it in a crock so I placed some oasis inside to hold the little branches. I found some very tiny stuffed hearts and I added some vintage buttons and and some linen thread for hanging. I found a package of little Valentine items on tiny clothespins that just clipped onto the branches.


A few red and white bows added a bit more color and just finished it off. I covered the oasis with a bit of wool from Montana-compliments of LaVonne's sheep.


I'm having a Valentine Give Away this to celebrate my new Tea Time Thursdays. Be sure and leave me a comment if you'd like to be entered in the Give Away!

I love the wool! I never would have thought of that, if you can imagine! lol! It looks cool in the crock. LOVE it all. You inspire me to do a little something, if only for me....

Invito - italiano
Io sono brasiliano.
Dedicato alla lettura di qui, e visitare il suo blog.
ho anche uno, soltanto molto più semplice.
'm vi invita a farmi visita, e, se possibile seguire insieme per loro e con loro. Mi è sempre piaciuto scrivere, esporre e condividere le mie idee con le persone, a prescindere dalla classe sociale, credo religioso, l'orientamento sessuale, o, di Razza.
Per me, ciò che il nostro interesse è lo scambio di idee, e, pensieri.
'm lì nel mio Grullo spazio, in attesa per voi.
E sto già seguendo il tuo blog.

Cute. If I wasn't so lazy I'd get out my vintage cards and do the same thing.

Hello Linda,
It's so nice to hear from you! I was away for Christmas and over New Years and then I got home and was sick with the head cold & flu along with a sprained hand and wrist. Yup, so blogging was very difficult the past few weeks!
I'm just getting back to normal again now. It took some doing to get my two parties up every week, believe me.

Your little Valentine craft is very cute. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Linda,
what a darling tree you've created. It's hard to believe that Valentines Day is just around the corner.
I hope you have a fun weekend.
