Valentine pretties!

It's hard to believe but about this time last year I found the blog world and I remember immediately wanting to be a part of it. Everyone was making great Valentine pretties and so I was inspired to do the same thing. All of this was stuff I made then. I now have a Silhouette and so I have a couple of ideas for projects and I hope to get them done tomorrow. Here is the buffet in my kitchen. One of my favorite spaces.
This little tree I made out of branches from a tree outside, lightly sprayed them white. It  is so sweet to me.
These little hearts I made by covering wooden hearts with scrapbook paper. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the paper. Then I inked the edges to give them an aged look.
A little closeup of all the styles
Can you tell the little pink heart is embossed?  I embossed this red heart  with brown embossing powder and the blue one is a foil like paper that has been embossed with the Cuttlebug.
 This paper came stitched with pink and red..
One of my favorite papers. Little red polka dot ribbons tied all over the tree.
Oh and I hung them with these cute little hangers that I purchased at Christmas time.
This is a little book that I added xoxo to. The red "O's" are velvet paper!
Aren't these cherry's so sweet. This is back from my Mary Engelbreit days. Chair of bowlies!
xoxo, love birds! I got these at Michael's last year, xoxo
This teapot just makes me happy! I bought this years ago and it's perfect for V-day.
It's so life like, really raised letters. Have I said so sweet yet???
And these smell sooooo good! They're candles and I don't dare burn them, it isn't necessary they smell good anyway.
And here it is all pulled together! Happy Valentine's day!!!!

Linking to Three or more Tuesday!

Looks adorable. I love creative things like this. Reminds me of a sock tree I did recently for a baby shower. Visit my site, and check it out.

the tree idea is great, i also did something similar for a baby shower and called it 'the giving tree' - painted the branches white but cut out different fall colored leaves, so people could write favors or wishes that they gave to the mother :) looks great!

So pretty! I like everything! I have decided since it is so late in the month I probably won't do much. It took forever to get Christmas down! Ugh! And since our baby's birthday falls on Valentine's day it seems like this holiday gets overlooked. I love what you have done though!
