Soft and Pretty Valentine Mantle


Here is my Valentine Mantle. Keeping it simple. I have a small collection of vintage Valentine candy boxes and here are just a "few". The one in the middle is from Laura as we did a heart box swap a couple years ago. The small one on the left is one I made for myself about the same time. I have samller ones that stayed in the packed.

The nasty cold bug had me under the covers for most the of week! Finally feeling better today. Not 100% to say the least, but up and make up on! LOL! So, that is why I haven't been around visiting. This week I 'll  be back to visiting and seeing what's new with you.

Warmly,
deb

Awww, Deb. I am so sorry that you have been bitten by that nasty bug! Hanna and my son Alex had it all last week and it was horrible. Get well soon and thanks for the super cute mantle photos. They have given me some great ideas for my own mantle.

Hi Deb-
Your mantel does look so soft and pretty! I'm sorry you were feeling under the weather. Hopefully you'll feel better this week! I'm hoping that there will be a good Estate Sale on Fri or Sat, so maybe I'll see you there! :)

How pretty! You do such a fun job on your mantel...it's so nice to have a space to change around for the holidays. I have been down with the nasty cold bug myself and am just getting back to crafting...I haven't even done one post for January!

Your Valentine's mantle is gorgeous! I just adore vintage heart candy boxes! I have two and am always on the lookout for more.It's getting hard to find the vintage ones for a decent price. I think I will alter some not-so-pretty ones that I have.

So sorry you been sick, I been seeing a lot of that. I love your Valentine boxes. I remember when I was little I loved to go lay on my Grandmas bed and look at the pretty Valentine box covers she had hanging on her bedroom walls! They were bright and had lots of ribbons and flowers! Loved them.
Blessings,
Susie

This is so cute. I have been thinking how I might display my vintage heart boxes on my mantel - and I already have a big window up there - I like how you put these together.

Aw Deb, thanks so much for the inspiration. How come you aren't taking the red rice tablets? Just curious if there is something bad I don't know. How much did your hubby lower it? I'm excited. I knew it could be done! I think you look wonderful, I can't believe you have any to lose! Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.
Hugs,
Julie
