The sweet Valentine Girl vase in the picture above is yet another little treasure that was here in the house. I'm sure it was a gift from my husband's father to his mother one Valentine's Day with flowers inside. She is such a little cutie. And below, I also discovered this red heart vase tucked away in a cabinet. I'm so glad my mother-in-law saved some of these things! The vintage Hallmark party plates and cups were a recent thrift store find. They go so well together.
I didn't want to put away my wire tree after Christmas, so I turned it into a Valentine Tree with clipped on vintage Valentine cards and crystal chandelier prisms ( or, as Pollyanna would say - "Rainbow- Makers"!!) dangling from white satin ribbons- and anything else that would fit the holiday theme.
I enjoy decorating for the different holidays even more when I have vintage treasures to include.
