Simple Sunday

Welcome to Simple Sunday.

Today’s project is Mini Mason Jar Waterless Heart Snow Globes.

I found these mini mason jars with handles at the Dollar Tree and the hearts at Target.  All the other supplies were in my craft stash.

First, I put a dab of hot glue on the bottom of the little pink bottle brush tree and placed it in the mini mason jar.

Then I added some of the faux snow left over from Christmas.

 Next, I added a pink heart for Valentine’s Day.

A decorative cord tied around the top just for fun.

A pink heart is hot glued to the top to co-ordinate the top with the heart inside the mini mason jar.

Mini Mason Jar Waterless Heart Snow Globe

Since I had all the supplies handy and extra mini mason jars, I made a few more waterless snow globes.

Thank you for joining me for Simple Sunday.

Simple Sunday

My friend Donna from Distressed Donna Down Home has a series she calls “Quickies” that she posts on Sunday.  It gave me the inspiration to start a similar series called “Simple Sunday”.

My first Simple Sunday post is a quick and easy project that takes just a few minutes ~ a super easy Valentine wreath.

Remember the set of three wreaths from my stash?  I used the middle size heart to make this Valentine wreath leaving me with the large and small hearts.

They were on my breakfast room table one inside the other waiting to re-enter the stash when inspiration struck.

 I went to my ribbon supply to see what I had to tie the two wreaths together and make a hanger.  The stash produced a little spool of cotton tape with red stripes that I got for $1 at Target in Bullseye’s Playground.

The inside of my front door was looking a bit forlorn since all the Christmas decor came down so a Valentine wreath is just what it needed.  Once I saw it hanging on the door it seemed a little too simple so a few vintage inspired valentines made it so much more fun.  My granddaughters actually squealed when they saw it.

Thank you for dropping by today.

How to Make a Quick and Easy Valentine’s Day Wreath

Today I’m showing you an idea for a quick and easy Valentine’s Day Wreath.

It was inexpensive too.

When I saw this red and pink pom pom scarf during my Saturday thrifting trip a wreath immediately sprang to mind.  So for a dollar, I couldn’t go wrong.

I had a set of three heart-shaped vine wreaths on hand in my thrifted craft stash.

Now I had to pick the one that would work best.  Reminiscent of the three little bears first I tried the large heart but the scarf wasn’t long enough and the small wreath wasn’t really the size I wanted.  So I was giddy when the medium size wreath was just right.

Starting at the bottom and working my way around the heart I hot glued the scarf to the heart.

So there you have it, one quick and easy Valentine’s Day Wreath.  As for supplies, the Dollar Tree has heart-shaped wreaths and you could buy an appropriately colored scarf at the thrift store and add your own pom poms.  You would still have a quick and easy inexpensive wreath.

Impromptu Valentine’s Day Tea Party

We really didn’t have anything planned for Valentine’s Day so we decided to have an impromptu tea party with items that we had on hand.

Valentine tea title

 We served ourselves sweets, berries, and a nice Taylors of Harrogate, Yorkshire Gold black tea.

Valentine Tea Party 5

Since we were working with what we had on hand we raided the pantry and found a few things.

Valentine Cupcakes

 On Friday I bought mini cupcakes for my granddaughter so there were a few of those left.

Valentine Tea 3

We had some two bite brownies so I fancied them up a bit with a little cool whip and a raspberry.   I love raspberries with sweets so I added a bowl to the table.

Yummies

It all made for a pretty tasty little plate.

Rose Teapot

We used my delightful rose shaped teapot.  I found this beauty in a thrift store a while back.

Valentine tea party

You may recognize the bottom teacup from FTT 69 Vintage Finds.  The teacup on top is one I inherited from my mother’s collection.

Valentine Tea 3

The Fire King Jadeite creamer and sugar bowl are a recent ETSY buy.

Joy Heart

I found this chiming silver metal heart-shaped bell last week but forgot to include it in my weekly Vintage Finds post.  It has JOY engraved on one side and when you pick it up it has a the most lovely deep melodic chime.

Valentine Tea 4

Thank you for dropping by and Happy Valentine’s Day.

Around My House These Days

Today I’m going to share a bit of  Valentine decor sprinkled around the house.  

Around My House title

I hope you enjoy the tour.

Heart in tea towel

My Ikea Hack In Three Easy Steps is   No, I haven’t decorated the sun room yet but this little heart brightens the space and inspires me to get busy.

Ella Mae dressed for Valentine

Ella Mae moved to the Dining Room as part of the dining room makeover.  Progress so far is that the wallpaper is gone and the walls are freshly painted.  There is still a lot of work to finish the makeover.  Decked out in vintage inspired valentines and a crown Ella Mae looks lovely in the freshly painted dining room.    

Adorable Valentine

I found this little guy the most charming vintage valentine.

Crystal heart

The crystal heart once held a small clock.  The clock stopped working and I placed one of my vintage brooches in the spot that previously held the little clock.   This particular brooch belonged to my mom.  It was a favorite of hers and she wore it often.  It is from the late 1950’s to early 1960’s.   Behind the crystal heart is a rhinestone card holder with a vintage valentine card.  

Valentines times two

The honeycomb valentine decoration added even more charm to the vignette on my bedside chest.  The honeycomb is very delicate so I don’t know if I will keep it open.

All You Need Is Love

You may remember this Pottery Barn Inspired Valentine Art from last year.  This year I have it on a clip board surrounded by a vintage folding ruler.

Sweater Vase

I’m sure you’ve seen the sweater covered vases in blogland so I’m not going into how I made it.  It suffices to say this is one of the easiest projects that I have ever done.  To compliment the sweater vase I added a small flower frog with a vintage valentine.

Boxwood Heart

I popped this little rose heart into a small boxwood wreath and hung it on my TV cabinet (sans TV) in the family room.  Not exactly vintage but a fun way to display some Valentine love.

Platter of Valentines

In the foyer I placed a white ironstone platter filled with vintage inspired valentines on top of a stack of baskets.

Rose Balls

These three rose balls just screamed Valentine’s Day to me when I found them in one of my favorite thrift stores.

Annie E's Heart

Annie E looks quite glamorous with her gold heart pin.

Q&E Valentine Project – Vintage Style 

A Quick and Easy Valentine Project – Vintage Style

What can you do with two vintage heart shaped cake pans and a small milk glass vase?

Q&E Valentine Project title

Make one adorable heart shaped tiered stand.

Supplies

First, gather your supplies.

Heart Stand Bottom Tier

Measure the length and width of your pan to find the center.  Then glue the narrow part of the vase to the center of the cake pan that will serve as the bottom tier.  Let it sit about an hour, then glue the larger end of the vase to the cake pan that will serve as the top tier.  Let it dry overnight.

Heart 2 Tiered Stand

See, easy peasy.

Heart Tiered Stand1

Now fill with candy or whatever your heart desires.

Valentine Bev Bar

Everyone enjoyed the beverage bar so much at Christmas I just converted it from More Than a Hot Cocoa Stand to a Valentine’s Day themed beverage bar.   Oops I have an empty jar.

Valentine Candy

 Yummy!
