Vintage Valentine Tinsel Hearts

Click on the picture above to enlarge it, it's huge!

Welcome back to Boxwood Cottages and my first post in the new year dear blogging friends and readers! I hope you all had a great time over the holidays and are already back in full swing in 2009. I had a little problem getting back in swing with a cold I catched and then very much work in the office during the first week after the holidays, but now I have adjusted again and I'm full of creative energy which I could finally use in my studio again, making Vintage Valentine Tinsel Heart wall hangings this weekend:

For the 3 Tinsel hearts that I decorated on my mantle I used Vintage materials like orginal old German sheet music paper and old cabinet photo cards from the flea market and herited Vintage lace, as well as some Dresden foil papers and Boullion from my stash and also other supplies that I bought or swapped from/with flickr friends like Jennifer Jinette, Cerri of the Little Pink Studio, Andrea of Onehundred Wishes, Heather of Speckled Eggs and Sarah of My so called junky life.

I'm pretty pleased with the way they turned out, they have got the nostalgic look that I was hoping for. See the tiny brass amor dangling from this heart?

I also made a few pink hearts. I find these two turtle doves from Cerri, that I've pasted on a Valentine paper banner that I made myself just so sweet!

For the Valentine heart above and the Valentine heart box below and also for the Valentine heart in the last photo of this post I also used the beautiful fabric yoyos I got send from my friend Anita last year:

For the box cover I've put the yoyo on a pink vintage milliney flower:

If you are interested in one of my hearts you are welcome to send me an e-mail to the e-mail addy you'll find in my profile under contact and I'll send you the infos you'll need to decide if you want to purchase one.
Have a very good start in a hopefully creative and happy new year 2009 everyone!
