Do you remember the joy of folding a piece of paper in half and cutting out a heart? These paper hearts became a banner, a love note, or a window decoration. Equally grateful was your sweet heart, probably a parent or school friend, who received your paper heart.
For a Handmade Vintage Valentine's Day, get inspired by those simple paper hearts and give some vintage love to your Valentine.
Project: Vintage Valentines, Heart Banner, Placemats Time: 30 min.
I have come to love, love, love Valentine's Day. A box of chocolates, in a heart shape box, of course, is enough to make me smile. Last year, however, I thought I was over it. I thought ... I could go without.
So, my husband and I bought my girls chocolates, as we always do. That night, just like an episode in a classic I Love Lucy, I sat up in bed and had a fit. "Why didn't you get me anything?"
Okay. I'm not over it. I love Valentine's Day. If my husband doesn't buy me a box of chocolates in those adorable little heart boxes, I'm ruined. So ... guess what he did? LOL. He got up out of bed. That's when I got concerned. "Where are you going?" I asked in a state of panic thinking that I had finally put him over the top. Silence.
He left without saying a word. Granted, I did deserve that, but he returned with a box of chocolates. Yes, they were in an adorable heart shaped box. He also brought a dozen red roses, probably for insurance purposes, and a smile on his face.
He does still love me!
Come on! Please tell me I'm not the only wife out there that has these moments?
