Here's a peek at my finished box!
I'm still lacking in the Vintage Valentine's department so I decided to use some playing cards to decorate the lid. These playing cards are vintage and belonged to my grandparents. I applied some glitter to the cards to add some sparkle. The rose embellishments are also vintage. I purchased the tinsel garland after Christmas at Walmart for 70% off. Overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.
In addition to the candy box, I also sent some Valentines dolls for my nieces dollhouse. I thrifted these dolls from Salvation Army and further embellished them using ribbons, hearts, roses and vintage buttons. The little blonde doll is a Madame Alexander Mcdonald's toy from the Wizard of Oz series. The little brunette doll is a vintage doll from Wales. I replaced her daffodil with a valentine! You can view these dolls in their new home here. I included several other vintage goodies but I'll let KJ share those. Now that I've had some practice I think I'm ready to participate in more Valentine's swaps next year!
Here is what I received in the mail today! I'll share it's contents tomorrow!
Linking up to It's A Very Cherry World for Rednesday!
Until we thrift again...
