I was wandering the store aisles the other day and it’s that time already, Valentines… In fact I saw pink and red decor going up the last week before Christmas. It seems like as soon as they start marking down all of the Christmas merchandise Valentines begins to move in.
I love this time of year, I haven’t always, it can really stink or it can make you feel all squishy – depends on how you feel about that part of your life. This year I am in the mood so I’m already working up flowers and a few love birds.
Here are pics of the new bouquet, Roses are beautiful but they don’t last long, I hope you’ll enjoy a first bouquet of recycled flowers for Valentines. I made them up from more of my upholstery, a blue wool sweater, more mop buttons from my collection and some old fashioned thread wrapped floral wire. I love the antique floral supplies – look so much nicer than the plastic covered, but you have to be careful, they show wear and tear a lot more.
