A Few More Valentine's Day Crafts

Vintage Swedish Mail Bag...Love this one because it's hand embroidered in red by someone, somewhere.  A creative Swedish soldier?  Charming to think so....
I made this linen blend ruffled pillow with a simple red heart.  It's nestled in my white slip covered chair.
I made this flour sack tea towel trimmed in white crocheted lace and detailed with the same simple red heart as the pillow.
A lavender bud jar with a vintage zinc lid.  The metal tag is engraved with the number 14 in red.  February 14th is around the corner!
Another lavender bud jar with a numbered tag.  I have lots of numbers available, so I experimented with the paint color.  I'm thinking about the number 13 in black for Halloween and the number 25 in red for Christmas. 

That's all for now!  Thanks for stopping by. 
A special thanks to those few who leave comments.  Where oh where is everyone?  :(

The things that you create are always so lovely. I think the little heart pillow and the towel are just the sweetest. Love the jar tags too.
