Valentine Vignette

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Mine was great. I spent Friday night & all day Saturday at a scrapbooking retreat with some great friends. I'm still working on our Disney trip album from this past summer's trip. I'd say I'm at least half done & the end is in sight. I'll have some layouts to show you in the next few weeks.


Last week I was able to finish up our Valentine decorating. With my hubby in school for another few weeks, things are tight, so I didn't want to spend anything on my decorating. Because of this, my budget for this vignette was $0.

Here's how I pulled it together...

I reused many of last year's decorations...

...including the paper hearts & the button art I made & displayed in an embroidery hoop.

I just took the paper hearts off of the string they were on & piled them in a couple of vases.

I also used the pink rag wreath I made last spring. I had an empty picture frame that I looped the wreath to to display it.

I also used my snowy owls (since they're just too cute) along with the Valentine vase I showed you a bit ago.

There you have it! Everything was reused & found from around the house. It's amazing what you can come up with when you have a little imagination!

  1. I love that you used things you already had around the house! I would have never guessed :) It looks fantastic! I especially like the paper hearts in the glass vase.

  2. Everything looks so cute! I adore that heart inside the embroidery hoop. Thanks for linking up to the weekly creative.
