Paper Doily Valentine





I added a paper doily valentine to my glass cloche this morning... I just made a simple doily envelope..... image from vintage post card... crinkle ribbon and added a brooch.... Very simple but charming for a couple weeks of decorating... I have several different Valentines started to decorate with.... will share as I get them completed.... I did get my smaller bridal Christmas tree down this morning so all trees are down except the sports tree in rec room and I will let Tom take care of that one.... Do have some decorations yet that are winter and my big chore... my Christmas village.... It will have to be a super good day for the village to vanish.... Tom and I did go to the Elks for while and enjoyed a soup and sandwich.... some conversation..... it was a good day....
