Some valentine love

I found these really great vintage valentine post card that my great aunt had wrote to my great grandmother. They are post marked 1909, 1910 and 1912. It that not the coolest.... I was actually looking online for some vintage valentines to print up to give my girls and to decorate with... and then I remembered that I have this whole huge stack of post cards that I kept when my great aunt passed away... so i dug them out and i just love them... i can't stop staring at them... thinking about the time when they were given... a simple post card to show their love... no e-cards, email, texts and all the other electronic things we do these days.... i just love to think about simpler times!

oh and here is my new cowl that i crocheted this week, to bad its like 70 degrees out and i can't even where it. Bummer!!! maybe it will get cold again... i guess i should not complain.. with all the midwestern and east coast storms and snow!!!

crafts that i have been making

This was a really ugly lamp shade that I made funky and cute...but be careful turning on the light, as my husband brought to my attention... i guess i need to trim the inside wooden picks... he tried to stick his hand in to turn on the light and got poked...ooopps! Here is a sign that i made for my kitchen... i copied it from which is my new favorite craft site... a conglomeration of crafters and their cool ideas..... love it!!!
And a trivet that i made for my brother at Christmas, who is going to culinary school.

Have a crafty day!!!!
