Vintage Valentine Swap


Danielle from The Vintage Dragonfly  recently hosted a Vintage Valentine swap.
How fun to pull out some of my favorite things for this one! Danielle asked us to use soft colors.  Dove grey has been very inspiring to me lately so I paired it with pale pink.  I especially liked using the blush pink fabric from a dress my daughter has long since outgrown as part of the ruffle. 
Here is the vintage valentine heart I made.


I loved working on this project!
Using many elements of my favorite things, such as, crepe paper, dresden scrap, trims and german glass glitter, I had a fun time playing with paper.


I also decorated the back with a few laces and baubles.





Treat bags filled with stamped ribbons, paper treats and other goodies to be sent to my swap partners.


How many of you get giddy when your postal carrier delivers a box?
(yes, I was giddy ;-), especially when I saw the box was from Danielle!)

I was over the top giddy when I opened the package to find a vintage valentine made by Danielle!

Paper awesomeness!!

The layers of vintage papers, tinsel trim, crepe paper and lace are so beautiful!





My favorite part is the sweet dove she tea stained and bejeweled.
Thank you Danielle!  I will treasure this always!


I was so excited to receive such fun and wonderful treat bags from my talented swap partners!:


Thank you ladies for all of the goodies and treasures!


Thanks for stopping by - wishing you a great week my sweets!

Dear Sugah (is that your nickname?), those big hearts are Whoa Wow. I love yours, and the one you received. Delicious. Looking forward to my own sheet of the birds of prey. So nice of you to suggest this. Charlotte
