Happy Valentine's Day

I really loved this little tin I found at the $ store, the candy inside was horrible! I threw it in the garbage.
The tiered cake plate was from youngest daughter. She bought it from a thrift store. I love it when they learn good habits from their mothers. (lol)
I bought the Scrabble Tile sign from my friend, Sandi at Wayside Treasures. She has an Etsy shop here. I love it when I get a package in the mail from Sandi.

White Wednesday #85 - Bath Salts Bottles

I could not show you these before Christmas as they were meant to be gifts for my 3 lovely daughters. The instructions and ideas were from a wonderful friend and artist, Janis at Rust and Ruffles. Here and here are the links where she shows off her designs.
I put them in some gorgeous fabric bottle bags and let them choose their own, sight unseen. It was fun seeing which young lady ended up with which bottle. The bottles were all made with thrift store junk and scrapbooking rub-ons.

I was going to make home made bath salts, but I found a bargain at London Drugs. A mega ton bag of epson salts infused with lavender, already to scoop - no fuss, no muss.

This was actually made from a decoration which was on a gift that was given to me at Christmas. I bought a plain frame from HomeSense, put vintage cream wallpaper in behind the glass and used that sticky stuff that you put up posters with to temporarily adhere the reindeer to the front of the glass. This great idea came from a blogger on the internet, but I am sad to say that I have misplaced her link. PLEASE - If you know who I can give credit to, let me know ASAP so I can get the word out. I hate to be a copy cat without at least a thank you.
Happy White Wednesday. You can go to my sidebar to link up to Faded Charm and see all the other lovely WW posts.
