I have been busy out in the studio crafting up some Valentine fun. I always try and mix some new things in each holiday...this year I put to use some vintage photos I found the other day.
Remember these? Dated 1937 from Ockley Green school here in Portland, Oregon.
I love old black and white photos. I really liked the unusual shape of these. I hand colored them and added a tiny vintage red heart. With a little more tweaking involving a vintage button and some mercury glass beads, this class of students became one of a kind Valentine ornaments.
These ornaments along with some of the usual spun heads, some decorated Valentine dolls and a few other pink and red goodies will be headed to Etsy on TUESDAY, January 22nd at 5:30 p.m. (pacific time).
I do love a holiday.
