Valentine’s Day, I thought, would be easy to decorate. I have a lot of pink stuff, and a lot of girly stuff. But when I shopped my home for items to display, I found it difficult to make the items look like they all fit in the same tone. I ended up putting together this vignette which I am not IN LOVE with, but until I can collect a little here and there, it will have to do!
These are, of course, thrift and estate sale treasures I have found in PA and FL. This Crush bottle was at my wedding (please let someone else see the humor in the “crush” bottle for valentine’s day), and the little girl with the fan I found just the other day here in FL. She was hanging around for months at a local thrift and I kept picking her up, and putting her back. Finally I bought her.
The doll behind her was also a find at a church rummage sale I blogged about around Christmas. She’s a 1950’s Vogue doll, with little hearts on her jumper.
Also that day, I found this hankie at another church sale. Good day! That pink lace tablecloth was my gram’s and this pink jewelry box was at my bridal shower. Of course a book about vintage valentines, and wedding cake toppers from my collections are here….
That card box was a find from the same sale I got the hankie. The little creature is doing the “he loves me, loves me not” thing. That little egg ornament in the front is fit for every season. I had it displayed at Christmas, it fits here in Valentine’s Day, and of course on Easter coming up!
My pink phone found at a yard sale, plus these two sharing a toast to happy days on this little trinket plate, and more wedding cake toppers are putting the icing on this valentine red velvet cupcake!
One last thing… it’s my 2nd blog anniversary!!!! Even though I’ve just started my new blog purpose and vision as of late, I started sharing my thrift and estate sale finds right off the bat when I started. Happy 2nd B-Day to Nicolyndime!!!
