I hate to admit it, but Valentine’s Day is just not a real big deal around here.
I did spend many years making valentine’s with the kids.
Glitter, craft paper, doilies, stickers……the usual.
We were homeschooling and on a budget, so they were pretty basic. Nothing like what you see on blogs and pinterest today. I was amazed by what I saw over at Meadowbrook Farm today!
They are fond memories though, of the time spent around the kitchen table. Any diversion from actual book work was gladly welcomed!
I did, however, make this a few years back, and thought I would share a few pictures.
I really like the vintage buttons I used along the top edge, it just adds to the vintage-y feel.
This is a close up so you can see the texture accomplished by a special quilting technique I had learned at the time.
I have loved whites, creams, and greys for quite a while now, which makes it timeless.
Well, there it is.
I’m feeling a little lame in regards to the whole Valentine’s Day thing, so I think I’ll dig out my Barefoot Contessa cookbook, my heart shaped springform pan (which I have never used) and set a pretty table all in the name of romance.
Hope you have good weekend!
