A Simple Project!

After taking down my Christmas decorations, I looked around the house and it felt.......a little empty.....I know I wasn't alone in feeling that way, I saw similar comments on many other blogs...

I shared with you that I loved having a wreath in my kitchen window, and decided to change it for the various holidays.......first up, a Valentine theme.

I also decided to keep the wreath that hangs on the inside of my kitchen door during the Christmas holiday throughout the year.

So I started thinking.......what to use.......

When thrifting, I always pick up the darling vintage crocheted potholders, well if they are in my price range....and I thought maybe I could use them to embellish the wreath.

And then in the little Valentine Swap I hosted I received a Valentine made out of a vintage piece of linen.

I put the two together and this is what I came up with.

I wrapped an extra Evergreen wreath with some vintage lace, sewed on the potholders, and hung the linen Valentine in the middle.

I'm happy with the way it turned out, and it adds a little something to the Xavier Ct. house kitchen.
