Feeling the Love: Another Valentine Vignette

I thought I was finished decorating for Valentine's Day.  I mean, the kids are grown now, so I can't say I'm doing it for them.  But my plain flat coffee table was bothering me.  With nothing to adorn it except an old vintage tapestry, it was becoming a dumping ground for newspapers and magazines and stuff.
Not good.

This tapestry I found at a barn sale is a mini version of the one my grandmother Mary Lillian Nunn had hanging over her couch as long as I can remember.  (She is the namesake for Mary Lillian Vintage.)



I had a vintage typewriter sitting on an antique school desk that seemed lost there.  Unnoticed.  So I brought it out.


Cute, but it needed something.  A sprig of something.  So I looked around.  I found nothing in Hobby Lobby, and then something Valentine-y caught my eye in Walmart, and it was only 97 cents! I tied a piece of twine around it and set it on top.


Nice, but it still needed something.  I had some old Bingo cards and red hearts lying around.  I wondered if they would work.


Perfect!  Well, until I found a box of Victorian Valentines from a garage sale that I had forgotten about.



Now it was perfect.  Another Valentine vignette.  It doesn't matter if no one but hubby and the dogs see it.  It's pretty, and it makes me happy.



I think I'm finished with Valentine decorating.  What about you?  

March is around the corner and I'll soon be looking for leprechauns and clovers.

Happy Valentine's Day!
