The Inspiraton Pinboard Sweet Hearts (1)Hello Friends and happy Friday! We’re a week or so away from the day of LOVE, so I thought I’d round up some beautiful “sweet heart” inspiration. Aren’t these ideas gorgeous? Enjoy the weekend ~ I have a jam packed weekend. I’m driving to my son’s college to see his volleyball game. They’re playing Stanford so it should be a great match.

EXTRA CREDIT: Tokens of Confection {Martha Stewart Living}

Mvalentines-day-06-rectangular-candy-boxes-0464-d111638-001The February issue of Martha Stewart Living is brimming with great inspiration. I love pretty packages and this story on turning ordinary chocolates into a special personalized gift with beautiful and unique packaging is right up my alley. Wood grain boxes are made by covering plain boxes with wood veneer and then stenciling them. A great way to package up treats without a heart or doily in sight.

CELEBRATIONS: Vintage Button Heart

Vintage Button Heart via homework | carolynshomework.com

I had this idea to use up some of my vintage buttons and create a little heart on an embroidery hoop. I naively thought that I had come up with some sort of original idea to create a little heart. Ha – I checked Pinterest and I discovered there are entire boards dedicated to button hearts on embroidery hoops. There are even hearts using red thread which again I thought would be original. Oh well, I decided to go ahead and create the little project that I had visualized even if it’s been done many, many times.
