A REAL LOVE STORY HAS NO ENDING.........Valentines , a day to celebrate LOVE!
Welcome to Sweet Tea N' Salty Air's Valentine! Grab a freshly baked "Welcome Home " sugar cookie made by our little Natalie. The recipe is on the back of the Domino sugar back and has become our favorite sugar cookie recipe.
This is a cute little vintage apron that I bought especially for our baker in training. The cookies are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside very delicious. This pretty cup and saucer belonged to my mom. Handpainted roses and a gold trim.
I used another vintage apron for a fireplace bunting, love the scalloped edging and the cute strawberry. I never intended to use as a bunting but it works well.
I used some old coke bottles and placed an Amaryllis flower in each. The chalk blocks I had shown a previous post, but for Valentines I cut out some pink hearts and attached them.
This black and white coloring takes me back in time ..........love black and white.
Just a simple rolling of the apron and a bunting it became.
Cherries and more cherries!
I crafted this table runner from a roll of red burlap off the 90% table at Tuesday Morning. I simply hot glued the edges and attached a burlap bow on both ends.
A simple vase that I fit a sweater sleeve onto. I just surrounded it with my favorite red wooden handled vintage finds.
The chalkboard blocks are very useful.
We decorated a little tree with some more Christmas clearance items that are Valentine fitting such as the cute cupcakes and pink sparkle owls.
How will you spend your Valentines Day? What ever you may do have fun!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
