My Valentine Tree





Good Friday everyone! I thought I'd join the Show & Tell Friday hosted by Cindy at My Romantic Home and share my Valentine's tree with you today. I've collected these wonderful Valentine's ornaments over the past 8 or so years and they are all handmade with online friends that I've swapped with over the years. So let's see what's on the tree.......



The tree topper with the vintage lady made by Emily Franz of Hootinannies....


.......the darling heart doll with button arms and legs, love potion bottle, letter of love......


....big ol glittered kissy lips.......


.....love letter, button heart, friend heart and more love potion--too cute!......


....the three little girl cupids. I always say the one in the middle is me--red hair and squishy. LOL! ......


....civil war era photo and my heart belongs to a soldier and the vintage little girl.......


....and of course a prim cupid flying through the air waiting to see who his next love target is.....

NOTE--This little cupid is a design by Sweetpea Primitives and she just happens to be offering him on her blog as free pattern download, so hurry before he expires........Click HERE


....and I love this big ol heart face made from wool and her lips and eyebrows are made from potholder loops--remember the kind we used to weave on the little loom as kids.....


....heart and hand--I love heart and hands!....the darling little Valentine girl is made by Angela of The Country Cellar, and the little Love Pills--filled with cinnamon red hots--so cute!.....



....not a partridge in pear tree, but a love bird in a pine tree. LOL! Also made by Emily Franz.....



....darling valentine girl.........



......love this big heart trimmed in cheese cloth and seashells with a wonderful vintage photo....



.....love the beading on this one........



.....a delicious wooly heart with lots of buttons! Made by my friend Gayle of The Middle Sister....



....a gathering of various hearts and sentiments......



......Love and another cute primitive cupid........


......little angel peeking out of the branches. She's made from red dominoes with delicate feather wings.......



....wooly heart and prim angel......


......and lastly is this shy heart with face peeking out from inside the tree.......

I hope you enjoyed my collection of Valentine ornies and don't forget to take a peek at the other Show & Tells too.

I love your Valentine tree with all its special ornaments. I have always wanted a prim tree to decorate with the seasons and finally got one this year. I made salt dough ornaments for it but think now that I need some other homemade ones like yours!
