Love is in the air

I hope you all will have a wonderful Valentine's Day with the special person or people in your life! Valentine's inspired me to create some pieces that celebrate love. I made these 3 little hanging pieces from some vintage change purses that feature a lovely woman on them, then dangling down is a picture of their sweetie. I hope they like the matches that I made, I tried to pick the most dashing gentlemen!!





This piece was inspired by the color red, I don't use it that much but on this piece I think the dash of red velvet makes it extra special, kind of like a tin Valentine! Almost as good as a box of chocolates.......well maybe a close second!!
