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?  :(

Keep Calm and Craft On!

  Valentine's Day is around the corner.  Typically, I procrastinate, then rush through the holiday.  This year I'm ready.  That means the PINKS and REDS are coming out in full force!  So far, I made more garlands.

Some glass.

 Some sprinkled.
I also put together a  few festive heart necklaces.  (Favors for my friends at an upcoming Valentine's Day Brunch....shhhh)   
 In RED.

 They look great in triplicate!
 I have a few more Valentine crafts I'll share in a later post, but until then, join me in the New Year as we Keep Calm and Craft On!

(Oh, by the way, only 6 days into the new year and I already broke several New Year goals.  RELAX...NOT (kids are still on Christmas Break.)  EXERCISE...NOT (haven't been to the gym in months.)  EAT HEALTHY...NOT (how do we get rid of the Christmas sweets if we don't eat them?)
