76 gum machines led the big parade...

Okay, it was more like 24 gumball machines...
but after tying each little ribbon, and packaging up each of these Valentine treats, it started to feel like 76!
So worth it to make a whole room full of five-year-olds smile though! Hope your Valentine's Day was a ball too.

Warm Valentine Greetings

Year before last, Williams Sonoma had the most adorable Valentine wreath in their catalog. It was was comprised completely of retro style Valentines that had been decoupaged onto a wooden form. I logged that idea away to borrow sometime in the future...
We have had three snow days in a row because of extreme temperatures in our area, so I decided to put my own slant on that wreath idea. This is what I came up with in my spare time. Again, I exercised some restraint with what I included. The base is so glittery and happy that I couldn't cover it all. Okay, I could have, but didn't. I am thinking that it needs a bow though. What do you think?
Thank you for visiting me today. For a peek at more pink goodness to warm your heart, please pop over to the blog of our delightful hostess Beverly.
Stay cozy!
