February. Already? Craziness! Adding to my general confusion regarding the space-time continuum, here in the Mid-Atlantic we've had such a mild winter that it feels more like April than the beginning of February. It's been warm and mild for a few days now, so much so that I've had all of the windows open in my house during the day. And judging by the way everyone is dressing, they're just as confused as I am! One woman I was chatting with at the organic market was wearing capri's and sandals, and we were joined by another in boots and a wool sweater. What is your preference? Do you dress for the calender, or dress for the forecast?
One thing I do know is that Valentine's Day is less than two weeks away. I have some valentine themed decorations ready to put around the house, and realized earlier that if I want to deliver any homemade valentines or make any valentine themed crafts, I'd better get to it.
I found all of these vintage card images on the New York Public Library Digital Gallery, and thought that you might be able to make use of them as well!
(This one is for all of my artist friends!)
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them yet. I'm thinking of printing them out on card stock and decorating them with bits of vintage lace and pretty baubles.
Do you have any ideas for their use? I would love to hear!
