Valetine Vignettes, and Another Nest Treasure

Fugal Decorating

You do not need to have all Valentine things to do a cute vignette.
Just gather up some reds, and display them together.

Unrelated red times blend together because of matching color.
One little heart makes it a Valentine Vignette.

Just throw a heart into this Pink dispaly,
and it becomes Valentine Vignette.
(pink heart to come) =0)

What I made for today.
A new bird nest treasure.

Frugal Shopping:

$ Tree specials.
Spool of ribbon- 5 yards for $1.00.
Bag of foam stick ons for the kids to do cards.

Cute cards,

and goody bags.

Love that red heart and red ribbon with fringe.

Spools of 2" wired ribbon, 3 yards for $1.00

My Victory was getting help figuring out my inventory system.
I think I may even understand it now.
(thanks Debbie) =0)

I also, finished 4 art treasures (posted earlier this week)
started a tea bag rose tutorial
(coming Monday)
took some inventory
went to two meetings
took 2 naps
emailed friends
blogged every day
hung out with my parents
and took our grand kids to yogurt!
(and probably a bunch more I'm tooo tired to remember!)
A very productive week!!

I'd say you've had a very productive week! I always love your nests and now I'm adding the dollar store to my list of errands to see if I can snag some pretty ribbon too. Thanks so much for joining in on Finished for Friday!

Lisa said...

Well, you had a productive week! (I did, too- must be in the air.)

We have a shelf in our living room that I treat as a mantle and decorate for the seasons with my little boys. I often do exactly like you said and just group random things in the right color family. Right now I have a bunch of silver candlesticks up there with pink silk roses in them instead of candles. I just pulled the flower off the stem and set it in the candleholder. Super cheap and looks very romantic.


Love your displays!!
My sweet little sugar bowl arrived and I gave her a bit of polishing and will "show" her off on my next post!
I adore vintage suitcases!!! and baby shoes. I still want to make a nest in one of them.
Happy weekend.
Deb :)

Barbara Jean,
I love your frugal decorating ideas! Your little antiuqe shoe tutorial inspired me to try one of my own. Check it out if you have time. Lisa
