Hello everyone! I had some fun making Valentine decorations with paper and mod podge over the weekend. I have a few things to show you today and some more on Wednesday.
I bought the X and O at Jo-Ann's. I spray painted them red because I knew I didn't want to decoupage the letters front and back with the red toile tissue paper (too lazy I guess :-).
Toile XO - you know I have to work some toile in somewhere!
This is a glittery heart that I bought last year at Target in the $1 section. They hardly have anything worth getting this year. You can't tell from the picture, but the paper behind the heart is pink toile
My one apothecary jar filled with some little red hearts from Hobby Lobby
This pot is the same one that I decoupaged harlequin paper on (there's a picture of them in the fireplace post down below). I just took some Valentine scrapbook paper and glued it on top. Next to paint, paper and glue are my BFF's!
I got this cute LOVE banner last year from another blogger. I think I got it from Bristol Honey Bend Vintage but I'm not positive!
That's actually a ornament I got at the thriftstore after Christmas. When I saw it I thought it would be perfect for Valentines Day! They look like two love birds sitting inside a heart. I added the large prism on the bottom.
I don't know if all those things will stay where they are. I have to finish making all the the other things and then I'll probably shuffle stuff around.I'm glad so many of you found "dump cooking" a new concept! I never know if what I'm posting is something everyone is already doing or not! Todays dinner is crockpot roast beef because I knew I was going to be busy cutting and gluing most the day!
I'd also like to extend a warm welcome to all the new readers to my blog. I don't know where you all are coming from, but I'm glad to see you. I'm doing my best to get around to say hi to everyone. Don't think I'm ignoring you, it may take me a little time to make my way around to you, but I'll get there!
