I am not a sophisticated blogger by no means. I blog to take my mind off realities of life. It forces me to think about other things. It would be easy to stop now but I promised myself I would not quit.. (hope that works out.)Historically Hubby and I are not a Valentine people, never have been .. is that pitiful? This week I decided I wanted to decorate for the occasion. Searched high and low in my favorite shop Home Goods and ...nothing.. Finally I did find some vintage downloads on Etsy that I loved. Got Hubby to downloaded them for me .. big mistake.. "how many on a sheet, what are they for?" And the standard question, "did you pay for those?" Yes, they were only around $4.00 so I think I am safe. So I got out my glitter glue and started decorating. This is how they looked before.
Four to a sheet, pretty but doesn't glitter always help things? I stayed on the lite side with the glitter, not easy for me. I also used a stamp, since my penmanship is not so great. I have seen some of yours on blog land that is unbelievable.
Here are some little tags I bought from another site. Just cut them out added card stock on the back, then glittered them up.
They look cute tied on things.
Back to the faux postcards.
I walked around the house with them for 30 minutes last night. Nothing worked. It was still bugging me today and suddenly I remembered the box of "junk" as I called when Hubby brought it home from his Aunt's estate this past summer. YES! I am soooo glad I didn't get rid of it. I love the pen. There with it was a box of tips.. While I was digging thru the treasure box, notice the name change? I found the watch and glasses.
Looks like a step back in time doesn't it? Makes me wonder about the person who used the items so many years ago. I wonder if they wrote love letters. Maybe they were Valentine people.
Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you guys.
Have a good weekend.
