White Wednesday

Sharing my "homage" to Saint Valentine with a vignette under glass.... 


Angel wings I received on a xmas gift...
I painted them white and added the "Je t'aime"....

My collection of sentimental valentines...


...a lovely garden heart I found at Home Goods..

...a sweet clay valentine handmade by my son when he was quite small...

...heart-shaped rocks and sea shards...
gifts from the sea....

....a petite vintage book I've had for many years...

....an authentic French letter dated 1916....

...and some paper ephemera.

Happy White Wednesday mes amies! 
Je t'aime!
I'm flying over to Kathleen's Faded Charm Cottage for more lovely inspiration!

  27. Oh, how beautiful these objects are... I am a big lover of hearts and the neutral colors are incredibly beautiful too. I too love the tiny heart shaped rocks, and when I find one it's like a kiss of love from my deceased Mom. I always find them just when I need a little bit of loving from above. :)
