It's easy to work in Valentine touches since I have a lot of romantic shabby decor anyway. I keep my winter decorations out all through February, so I have just added a few little Valentine touches here and there.

My dearest friend Stephanie sent me this old postcard last year. She knows how I adore all things vintage.
For my topper I just cut out an old Valentine card I have had forever in my craft stash, and glued it to a lace paper heart. I think the cost of materials for this topper may total a whole quarter. I love simple home made Valentines like this. It reminds me of decorating my Valentine boxes for school with my Mommy each year.
Oh and I am crazy about this picture with the baby and arrow...a little cupid! It was a $6 estate sale find and my favorite Valentine's day decoration. I created a really mismatched vignette here, but it's fun. One of my hand sewn hearts is displayed in an old rusty bed spring, alongside some other treasures. I like to include a couple of vintage Shiny-Brite bulbs for Valentine's Day too. And why the Scottie? I collect vintage Scottish Terrier figurines and planters, and this one just looked Valentines-ish, being white with the red collar. Also, our dear little black Scottie, Findlay, passed away earlier this month and our white wheaten Scottie, Bonnibelle, has truly been a comfort during our loss. She is so sweet and loving, truly a Valentine of mine!
Here she was my Christmas girl.
Last year I was really sick in February, and I didn't get my Valentine's Day post up until March. So in case you missed it, I will leave you with a few pictures of the Valentine treasure box I created inside an old machinist box. Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Valentine's Day!
