HELLO VALENTINE

I created a Valentine vignette today and I thought I would show you how easy it is to change an existing vignette for a new holiday look

Here is the Valentine vignette 

This is how it looked for Chirstmas
I decided to leave the 'bones' the same and make some quick and easy changes

A pink candle, vintage valentine and hearts under the cloche.  I added a heart ribbon for some contrast
Change the plate for this starbucks saucer
Add hearts to the candy dish and a few other valentine related decorations

This is a vintage Valentine I won in a giveaway from Shara at Monekybox last year

Without the cloche

This little angel was found at a thrift shop

I added pink and florals to the plate rack

I will probably tweak this some more but not bad for a quick and thrifty change

Happy Junkin,
Linda

So pretty!!!! I love it all! I'm working on my Valentine's decor this week. I'm almost done and then I can post about it. I haven't felt well this week, so it's slowing me down. ~ Blessings, Becky

Looks like you are definitely getting into the swing of Valentine's Day, Linda. Festive and all in my favorite color----pink! Hey! I like the new font for the comments section, too. Susan

Linda, your vignette is very beautiful!! I love your pink floral plates.
I appreciate all your visits to my blog and the kind words you leave about my post! Thank you!

Rosie said...

Your vignette is just gorgeous. I can't see any reason to change the 'bones'. They work so well. Haha. I love the little angel with an arrow through her head. Too cute!

Pondside said...

I'd say it's better than 'not bad' - you are amazing.

Olive Cooper said...

First I love this font! The cloche is adorable. I have zero valentines decor. Must find some at a garage sale. ♥O

BECKY said...

So cute! A delightful sight as I sit here this evening, during our blizzard!! But, you didn't mention something my eye caught right away...that gorgeous old glass door knob! I LOVE it!!

You inspire me to put a Valentine vignette together today. I don't do alot of Valentine decorating but I will try.
Enjoy your day and like the new print on your blog.

Hi Linda!
I think I've told you this many times before, but your vingettes keep getting better and better. I just love the cloche and the contents underneath. The vintage valentines always remind me of grade school when we used to hope that our little envelopes were full of cards! Love your style and you too!

hugs
Sissie

This is so cute! We don't really do much for Valentine's Day over here in Australia but since I have started blogging I am getting into this special celebration much more.

Thanks for the great ideas!

Best wishes always,
Natasha.

I like your Valentine vignette Linda! You made the change appear so effortless... I have not decorated for Valentine's Day since the boys became adults but maybe I will do so this year.

Linda, this vignette is so pretty. Love the way you left the 'bones" there and changed out the decor for V'tines. What a cute little vintage card. Cupid with the arrow through his head adds such fun to this vignette. laurie

Laura said...

Linda-
Your Valentine vignette looks lovely.
I need to get busy!

I hope things aren't too cold where you are-

Claudie said...

WOW have you changed??? LOVE IT. Your header, your nice big beautiful pictures, your print, everything is PERFECT.
LOVE your pinks and reds together. Maybe I should throw in some red around here. I'm just watching all the white stuff flying around today. Colt is out shovelling and it's nearly midnight. Very peaceful day. If you come around you most probably won't be able to comment. My box is all screwed up. That's not the only box that's screwed up HAHA. I have another UTI. Oh how nice to come home to that ; )
Love You
Love Me.
P.S. What are thinking with the Bachelor? I'm ok with it, but that Michelle has to GO!!!!
xoxoxo

Inspired and easy. Love it, Linda!

Doesn't everything look prettier under a cloche?! Your vignette looks sweet, and I've finally gotten to that point where I keep the "bones" the same, and add a few things to it. I probably learned that from you!

It calls for a sweet Valentine!!! Very Nice!

Very cute! ♥♥♥
