~ViNtAgE Valentine~



 These re-production vintage cards gave me inspiration...
to create this Valentine Banner..
Glitter, glue, lace & ribbon...
and vintage buttons too...
..all adorn this fun & festive garland.





 It is 4 1/2 feet long...and each section is 8" X 11"
 It is available in my etsy shop ... if you are interested!

Very cute Carrie! I was thinking about making something similar because my mantel looks so bare after taking the holiday decorations down. I made one for spring last year that I really enjoyed.

I love that banner
and your mantel
it looks so much like mine because of the bricks
and the gold screen cover
but my mantel is wood 'brown'
I have been thinking of painting it white
it is eight feet long
yikes

Hugs said...

Simply lovely. The vintage ephemera makes it super charming.
