I finally got the Dickens' Village put away and it was time to take out my Valentine's Day decorations.
It is a special day for us because we were married on a snowy, blustery night in Chicago on February 14, 1987.
We've been Valentines for 26 years~
Here are little shadow box valentines I made several years ago in empty chocolate boxes (they are displayed on the mantel on little picture easels).
I lined empty little chocolate boxes with black and white toile' and then bedazzled them with buttons, bow, cards, flowers, trinkets, etc. I was working with the "king and queen of hearts theme...
here are some close ups. Lots of references to 2-14
They are in this sized box -
Last year we were on a Carribean cruise at this time.....now we are bracing once again for a snow event! Nemo is headed our way and colliding with a mid-west event. Bring it on. I'm ready.

Have a great weekend - I'm posting early in case of power outage.
