Sneak peeks...

Spoiler alert
Once again I signed up to participate in Heather's Match Box Swap, Flea Market Edition.
My first partner is Kana and she loves robin's egg blue, pale pink and cream.

I covered her box in pale pink vintage floral wallpaper, attached a paper rose i glittered and attached with vintage pink seam binding.

On one end of the box I added a sweet vintage pink button with rhinestone center and wrapped seam binding around the outside of the inner box.  I wanted it to look like an old fashioned dresser drawer.

Here is a little peek at some of the treasures tucked away inside the box.

And finally the inside bottom.  I used an old victorian sticker, attached it to sheet music, tissue paper and some paper lace.

These little boxes are such a delight to create and I hope sweet Kana will enjoy...

Stay tuned for part "deux"

Love notes in the air....

"Can miles truly separate us?

If we want to be with someone we love,

aren't we already there?"
~ Richard Bach

Today I sent off some sweet little love notes to my three grandchildren who live on the east coast, 
 while I am way far away on the west coast...sigh

Litttle bits of vintage this and that for the princess.

And a simple sentiment of love for the oldest.

Hearts, buttons and baker's twine for the middle munchkin.

Each card is made with Grandma's love and a little extra surprise as well.

Happy Valentine's Day!

There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved.
George Sand
