I was inspired by everyones lovely Valentine decor.In particular,Heidi's ,and Sarah's so I decided to surprise my baby when she returned from pre-school with a little display just for her. First ,I went into the backyard to gather sticks for a Valentines tree.I wired them together and stuffed them into a vintage tin bucket.
I proceded to defile my vintage valentines,by poking a metal x-mas hanger through the "spine" of the cards.I topped the tree with a honeycomb valentine ,snatched up at an estate sale for a dollar.
I got the sweet little tomato and onion girls at an after x-mas sale for 2 bucks each,but how could I possibly wait a whole year to use them?
Underneath the tree ,I used a vintage val-day hankie and a little mommy deer and her baby fawns(you may click to enlarge there sweet little faces).
My sweet Amanda also helped put me in a Queen of Hearts mood by sending me her special New Year CD mix.As usual the music was scrumtrulescent! There was even a song called Redhead girl,by the french band Air (if you do not own the soundtrack from The Virgin Suicides,get thee to a music store!).Ofcourse the vessel for this music was off the Button-Box chain! Art in and of itself.

This lovely felt heart is suitable for wearing around ones neck. I've already torn into my lovely soap,so no pics.
...and a Chinese pagoda top,making me feel quite sassy!Thank you darling Amanda.
