My Valentine's: A Printable, a Present, and a Vignette

****Have you entered the blog makeover giveaway yet???****


Valentine's Day came early for me when I spied some gorgeous nightstands in my friend Kate's space at Country Roads.

I made a little mention to her that maybe she should let my "cupid" know about them. Well being the good friend that she is, she did, and guess what showed up at my door today?!


I realize not everybody is into the "shabby" look, but these are vintage and I just love them. Unfortunately, it may have prompted a little (or possibly big) bedroom redo, as Rick and I both looked at our new nightstands in our room and said, "We need a new headboard." Our bedroom furniture belonged to my grandparents and is really beautiful and in great shape, but it's from the 60s, a laquered oak finish, and really just not my style.

I decided to add a little Valentine's vingette, complete with a new printable.


The sweet little cherub was a gift from my friend, Kate; another "I spy" from her blog.

And of course, this.


I had a vision for this a while back, and decided it would make a great printable for Valentine's day.

It has 1 Corinthians 13 (the love chapter) in the background, and the word LOVE in a transparent red. If you like it, it's free for the taking.
 Size is 5"x7" (I actually reduced mine a bit to fit in a 4"x6" frame I had). As always, just right click and save. 

I've got a big blog project coming up in the next few days...I'll be unveiling something new...don't you want to know what it is??? Come back this weekend and check it out!

Thanks so much for the printables! I downloaded the Christmas tree one - it's precious - and I used the "Love" one from this post as inspiration to make a "Pray" one as a gift for the ladies in my prayer group.
Have a lovely day!
