I’ve had Valentine’s Day on the brain lately.

Finally a few projects are starting to come together and should make an appearance on the blog very soon.

In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to revisit this Simple Valentine Moment I put together last year.   This sweet framed pewter heart was enjoyed way beyond Valentine’s Day.  It was one of those little projects that put a smile in my heart.

You all showed some incredible giftedness and talent this past week at Project Inspire{d}!

I was amazed at all the lovely Valentine inspiration shared.

Thanks for smiling with me.  I hope that it will give you inspiration to create your own little simple valentine moment as well.


And now, on to our Extraordinary Link Party….

My Picks….

Deep in the recesses of my storage unit, I have some similar vintage chairs that I was thinking of slipcovering.  This fabulous makeover Anita gave her chairs is so elegant.  I’m inspired.

Deborah at Green Willow Pond has such a way of taking something that I would surely pass by and turn it into an heirloom treasure….complete with a story.  And yes…you must read the story behind this amazing transformation.

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of anything made with book pages.  This heart wreath made of book page roses is just the cutest thing.  My wheels are spinning on this one.
