Valentines Day preparations here at The Gazebo House.
I had to try filling my apothecary jar with
pretty cupcake liners after I saw
darling display idea Kathy did on Kathys Cottage
BJ, over at Sweet Nothings is having a
little give-away of some of those same
Mary Engelebreit cupcake liners,
so pop on over to her place & sign up.
Ms. C. was here for a visit &
hung red felt ♥♥♥'s in our sunroom windows.
Don't you ♥ the contrast of them,
against the white snow?
I've got a ♥ shaped wreath on the front door
that pays homage to my love of tennis.
*I've been playing weekly for over 25 yrs now*
I was inspired by Karen’s glasses holder from Sew Many Ways
(Did you SEE her sewing room??? TDF!!!)
So I redid this little metal hanging ???? envelope???
whatever it is....was pale pink & green.
I sprayed it white but I think it needs another coat.
*note to self...don't buy the cheap spray paint EVER again*
I've tucked in some of the many SWEET cards my honey has
given me over the past 25 years.
Yes, I've saved EVERY. SINGLE. ONE!
(plus the ones from my grands)
Someday he'll be gone & I want to be able to go back to
read the SWEET words he wrote to me while still alive.
Speaking of painting, I sprayed the above lantern
with oil rubbed bronze & it looks
SOOOO much better now,
don't you think?
It is especially pretty at night with the little battery
operated tea light inside.
I'm still trying to think of something creative to do with this vintage floral container. I'm not talented enough to make a sideways flower arrangement in it.
Look at all the wonderful ways to fill vintage containers.
Any suggestions on how to gussy mine up a bit???
I'm joining Susan's, Between Naps on the Porch
Metamorphosis Monday meme,

"Before & After" changes to share.
