Fabulous Vintage flower holder and Valentines

Nothing better than flowers to break the winter doldrums. I got several bunches of flowers on clearance at Wal-Mart, then just created a casual arrangement in my new vintage bottle carrier! I put some milk glass glasses in (they fit perfectly!), filled them with some water, and in went the flowers.
You can get some bouquets of clearance flowers at Wal-mart for about $2/ bouquet.
This is now the second vintage milk bottle carrier that I own. This one has 6 openings, my other has 8. I usually put mason jars in the one that carries 8.

And here are some of my Valentine's cards I made using pieces of vintage Valentine's. I think that this one turned out very sweet!

On the card below, I actually color photocopied a sheet of this cute girl on the swing. I had Kinkos just make multiple images on one sheet. I cut it out using crafting scissors. I think it is darling!

To get a better image, just click on the picture and you will get a larger image. I'd love to see some of your vintage items. Post a link with your comment!
