Happy Valentine's Day!

This was the scene out my window on Sunday -- those are robins hiding from the sideways-blowing snow -- but yesterday and today, Valentine's Day, the sun is out!
This is what I bought myself a couple of weeks ago -- by Beth Quinn.  She was having an awesome promotion and it was a steal.  (Yes, I told my husband that it was his Valentine's Day gift to me!  And I didn't wear it until today!)  Can you read it?  It says, "she knew she could so she did"; it is a saying that means a lot to me.
I finally received 13 of the 14 tags I did for a tag swap; one of them is still on its way.  Here's the one I made...
I used vintage school paper, a red doily, and a cute little girl on a vintage valentine.  On the reverse, some of that pretty vintage wallpaper.
It's not my usual style...more whimsical and fun and I really like how it turned out!
And here are all the rest!  A closer look at each...


Yes, it was as much fun as it looks!

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day, dwelling on love and loved ones!  I have so many more pretty things to show you -- so come back and see me all week!

Happy Valentine's Day, Laurie!
At first I thought the red spots in the tree might have been outdoor Valentine decorations! lol What a beautiful sight, as are your gorgeous tags! I also love your necklace and must keep Beth Quinn in mind for future gifts-to-me occasions!

Poor little birds but what a sight. Would have liked to seen it. Love those tags-you did a great job. I am absolutely envious with the vintage wallpaper on the back. Necklace was very thoughtful and beautiful gift from your husband.

Your tags are all so cute, so much cuter than any I can make.

I got the buttons in the mail today for the lady who is working on her mothers gloves. I called her and she is so excited

Thanks you again Laurie
