It's Snowing Hearts

Another super duper quick Valentine's Day decoration.

Take a jar. Put a bag of cinnamon hearts in the bottom. Plop in a copy of a vintage Valentine postcard. Instant red hot romance.

OK, that might be going a bit far. Instant vignette, at least.


I was going to put Valentine M&M's in it, but my butt's big enough. You gotta use a candy that you don't love more than life itself or you're just asking for it to be refilled constantly.


It's the same jar I used in December for a snowy scene.


I'm already searching for pint sized leprechauns for St. Patty's Day.

  2. I am laughing about the candy because that is so true! If it's not candy I like it will last in the vignette. I really like your jar. I think my Mom has one like that, hmmmm wonder if I can 'borrow' it next time I visit her!
    hugs, Linda

  3. I seriously cannot find a candy I will not eat if I am craving sugar-I am craving sugar often my friend. Love this idea. I actually found a vintage Valentine today-aren't you proud of me? Must have got it at an estate sale.

  5. What a cute vignette! This would be a great one for me to do. I wouldn't even eat all of the candy out of it. I've got the perfect pink depression glass cookie jar for it.
    I think you can get a leprechaun in time for St. Patrick's day if you start now. Just put the empty jar outside with the lid off and a leprechaun may wander in. Or if that plan fails, you may be able to find one for sale online.

  9. That's cute Pam. I know what you mean about candy disappearing from jars. At least it does at my house.

  17. Pam, you are hilarious, but oh so correct. I would come down the following morning and my jar would surely have been emptied, too. Red Hots are the way to go! Love your sense of wit ;)
