My Funny Valentine

 
Hello my friends,
 
As most of you know I am a vintage lovin gal.
 
I am so excited to be joining some of my vintage loving friends for a Valentines blog hop and link party today.
A big thank you to Amber and Debra for putting this hop together!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Have you ever noticed how funny the sayings on vintage Valentines are?  They just make me smile!
 
 
But do you know what is even more funny that vintage Valentines?
Bare naked babies called Kewpie!
 
They are the inspiration for my 'funny Valentine' tablescape that I am sharing today.
 
After visiting me, you will want to hop over and visit Linda from
Itsy Bits and Pieces to see what vintage goodness she has to share. 
 
 
Last year I helped host 8 estate sales for my friends late Aunt.
 
I passed up so many Kewpies she had.  I think they are cute, but not enough to start a collection.
 
But then a few weeks ago I saw this pair at an estate sale and thought they would be fun for Valentines.  Notice they have little wings?  It's hard to read, but the one standing holds a "I love you this much" banner.
 
 
I also passed up some blocks that had iron-on transfers of Kewpies.  They just needed to be embroidered.  When February was drawing near I remembered that I hadn't put the Kewpie blocks out for sale.  That's when I thought that they would make a cute runner for my table. 
 
 
I love redwork and it's makes embroidering so much faster when you don't have to change thread.



So I stitched away and created my 'funny Valentine' table runner.
 
My friend, Amanda quilted it for me.  I love the stitch of the trailing hearts!
 
 
 
 
This baking scene is what I decided to run with for the table décor.
 
 
 
I pulled out my vintage Sunbeam mixer and filled it with hearts.  Isn't the aqua color dreamy?
 
 
Amanda, my friend who quilted the runner; and also made the polka dotted heart had tied some cords together with a chenille stem and formed it into a heart.  I thought it was so sweet.  I just had to copy!  (wink)

 
My old Sno-Kreem shortening can is so faded, but I still love it!  Perfect for holding a blooming Paper White.
 

 
A vintage sifter, hot pads, and cookie cutters hang from the chandelier.
 

 
Look at this sweet little dress hot pad.  I don't know how much it would protect your hand, but certainly fun to look at.

 
Each setting is layered with a fun red/white combo.  I bought the large plates at Target a few years ago.  The salad plates were a thrift find, and the polka dot cups and saucers I just purchased off of Instagram.  They are vintage.  I stitched wool hearts and tucked one inside each cup.  They can even be considered vintage because they were cut from an old wool coat.  : )
 
 
Just wanted to show you how sweet the salad plates are.

 
I bought the heart goblets at the Dollar Store for my kids when they were little.  They are in their 30's and 40's now; so they are quite old.  You don't know how many times I have just about donated them to charity.  A vintage hankie is tucked inside.

 
My friend, Ann gifted me with the felt hearts.  I wanted to bring in some more pink so I placed some of both red and pink under the silverware.  Which by the way, is another thrift find.
 
 
This tablescape is a little different than I usually do.  I didn't want to cover up those cute Kewpies, so I just decorated the ends.
 
A birds eye view.
 
 
And of course, you can't have a baking themed table without something baked.  I made sugar cookies for Super Bowl.  Luckily, I had some left over. 
 

I love Crinoline dishes!  We found quite a few when setting up one of our estate sales.  My friend Dolly and I divided them in half so we each got some.

 
Thought I'd mention that the frosting for the cookies got mixed up in that sweet vintage mixer. 
 
 
I adore bottle brush trees and use them a lot more than just Christmas.  I created the stand by glueing a large tart tin from a thrift shop to a base and spray painting it pink.
 
 
 
So, what do you think; Won't you be my Funny Valentine?
 
 
 
 Do you have any Valentines themed blog posts to share?  We would love for you to come back this evening and join us for the "Share the Love Valentine Link Party"
 
 
 Here is a list of the other vintage lovin bloggers participating in this hop.  You are going to want to visit all of them!










hugs,
 
 
Also sharing with these fun parties:

Amber Lyon Ferguson said...

Absolutely fabulous! I love Kewpies, especially for Valentine's Day. Your mixer is so amazing, and I love that you use it too! I also love the bottle brush trees. I don't know if you noticed in my post, I put a tiny little pink tree inside a silverplate salt shaker that sort of looks like a mini tree in a gazebo. So fun to use bottle brush trees for Valentine's Day and Easter too! Your chandy looks adorable displaying all of the old pot holders. Pure vintage goodness here!

Thank you so much for joining the hop. It has been so fun!

Sara Frederic said...

I'm Sara Frédéric from Switzerland I want to let the whole world know how Dr Great has restored my broken relationship with Wayne. We have been together for 2 1/2 years and he told me that he doesn’t love me like he used to. Things have not been good for about 4 months and he ended this about 2 weeks ago. I was miserable and just don’t want to go on anymore. I did text him right after this but he didn’t even respond to me. One day I was searching for something on the Internet when I saw a post of a love spell caster called Dr Great and how he helped a lady to get back her Ex, I was so desperate to get mine back I messaged him and explained my situation to him and he instructed me to do somethings which I did and 24 hours later my boyfriend Wayne came back home kneeling and begging for my forgiveness and I forgave him and our relationship was back to normal again if your Ex broke up with you or you have any problem then you problem has come to an end because God is using Dr Great to solve all our problems and put a smile on our faces if you need his urgent help email him at infinitylovespell@gmail.com

He performed a spell for me and for 24 hours after the spell had been casted i receive a text from my ex boyfriend saying that he is sorry for the pains he put me true and the tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such thing to me again in his life again. i was really surprised and was also happy, so that was how i forgive him and now we are living together happily than ever before,and He always want to be by me and can not do anything without my present. I was surprised but later accepted him back again.

When I found Dr. Olu I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr. Olu through his website and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. Olu helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. Olu to anyone in need of help.

Best Online Spell Caster Reviwes
My world was falling apart. My mind, for some reason, wont let go of the memory of My Wife. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, that lead to her leaving me. All efforts to get her back proved abortive. one day while going through the internet i saw so many testimony of this great man called Dr.Goodluck and how he helped people with all kinds of problem, his advert was everywhere,. Although I never believed in spell casting, but I had no choice than to give him a try so i contacted Him, I was so desperate to have my wife back with me once again. So I did all he told me to do. He told me that my wife will come back to me in the next 17hours after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, it was just 14hours after the spell was done my wife called and said she was coming HOME and she was asking for forgiveness for her ever hurting me before…..It was a dream come through for me!!! that was how my family and relationship was save and our relationship is now stronger than ever.my advice to you out there facing same problem or even worst then mine cry no more and contact this great man called Dr Goodluck He is capable of handling any kind of problem.

My Dear friends online, My name is kayler lawson and i live in USA, ohio, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 6 years ago, which lead to our break up. I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in solving similar problem. He is known as DR.KEN .I email the spell caster and i told him my problems and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening , my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me i was so happy to have him back to me. The most interesting part of the story is that am pregnant. Thanks to DR.KEN for saving my marriage.

Continue your good work sir, If you are interested to contact the great spell caster, here is his email address:greatdrkenspelltemple@gmail.com or contact him on WhatsApp- +2348104557346
