It all started with the arrival of a couple of vintage items in the mail Thursday afternoon.
Recently I won a give away from Cindy at Old Time Farmhouse It was $30 to spend in her etsy shop. The minute I started browsing I knew just what I wanted.
Then a day or so later I wanted a second peek at it. I went back and found something else that took my eye.
When they arrived I thought, they are so cute. I want to use them in my Valentines displays.
So that’s what got me playing a game of Valentines Day Tag. I began having ideas run through my head of Valentines sayings using my new vintage treasures. I pulled out some craft items and started making tags.
This is the item that I picked first. Isn’t it SA-WEET! I tried to keep this tag very simple. It needed that old fashioned feel.
And here’s what I spied when I went back for a second look. What made me fall in love with this fan was, of course, the red center.
As you may have noticed, I didn’t stop there. I started tagging several more vintage items. What’s a girl to do when she’s having so much fun? I had picked up this pair of locks a while back at D.I. I thought they were tag worthy.
From there I went to this old bowling pin. It belonged to my youngest son when he was a teen. He hasn’t asked for it back yet. I think it’s ever so cute!
I decided that I didn’t want to over do the tag thing (like I hadn’t already). . .so I just laid this one on an old book.
This old camera is one of my most favorite vintage finds. Had to tag it!
After that I started thinking of a lot more sayings. I had to tell myself, “settle down Jann, you haven’t even pulled out your Valentine boxes yet.
Not sure they will stay like this, but I put my tagged items on this table for a photo shoot. Do you ever wonder if they feel like we are the Paparazzi?
At first I wondered what to do with the cord from the fan. Then I thought it was kind of fun to use it as a garland.
How about you? Do you ever get carried away when playing the game of tag?
Thanks so much Cindy for my new treasures. I love them!
