Love is All Around Us.....

Valentine's Day to me is a holiday that celebrates love. What is it to you? What do you love most about Valentine's Day? Could it be the chocolate....? The roses....? I'd love to hear from you!
Please join me for "Show and Tell Friday" over at the beautiful My Romantic Home blog!! Don't miss out on this creative fun!

 I hope you enjoy my latest inspiration. I found these adorable sets of "angel" wings a few months ago at Camas Antiques and I just had to have them. I didn't know what I would do with them at the time, but these little beauties just had to come home with me. I started out by making these sweet little millinery flower cones. I liked them well enough, but they still needed a little something..... once I added the wings, then the cherub, I LOVED 'EM! What do you think? Don't you just love music sheets? It has such a simple elegance~kinda like a string of pearls with jeans~. I'm in love with little frames. I have been on the hunt for them for years. The scrolly ones are my favs. I remove the little glass squares from the frames to make 3-D art. I came up with a few Valentine themes this go 'round. The bottom photo is of a Valentine garland with pink glittered letters. Simple elegance & some sparkle. I'll be sprucing my booth in Camas tomorrow and these goodies will be on display. I wonder if they will find their way into anyone's heart this Valentine's Day?
Blessings to all, Raylene
