Loves First Kiss


In between the major to-do list of planning my upcomming event I decided to spend Sunday afternoon creating a very special Valentines gift for a lovely friend who has been so kind and good to me. 


It's a simple candy box that I dumped all the candy out of (well…I did eat a few pieces. hee! hee!) Than I adorned the box with the perfect vintage music sheet, lace,gold doile trim, and the YUMMIEST pink mauve velvet trim that came all the way from M&J Trimming in NYC.  



The cherub was a Christmas ornament that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. He was bronzy gold and he soon got a quick makeover into a pale pink Master of Love.


I gave him a bit of a regal look.



    Im really pleased with how beautiful it turned out.  I hope my secret admirer friend will enjoy it at Valentines Day for many years to come. 


Over the Christmas break I took advantage of the down time and made a few large Valentines Day gift tags. These tags are currently available in my Etsy shoppe. 





 Of course not only did  I make the more elegant Valentines but I also made the whimsy and cute as well. πŸ™‚

Be Mine Pink Elephant Valentines ornaments.


Recognize the Elephant??? Yep! He's from my Happy Wall!


Fluffy white flocked ears and cute button eyes!

These adorable pink V-day Elephants are available as well.

Thanks for stopping by sweet friends! I ALWAYS appreciate your comments!Enjoy the rest of your week!

I L_O_V_E_ that candy box! It is just so lucious! You did a fantastic job on it. Love the other creations as well. Thanks for sharing! Have a lovely day!

Jenn….what a beautiful Valentine box you made!! I love it, it is AMAZING!! I am working on one for a swap that I am in, but I must say, this is making mine look quite inferior. I guess I better get back to it with more glitter and flowers. hehe I just bought one of the sweet elephants, and am so happy that I got one before they were gone. I hope that you have a super fantastic day.
