What's Red and White and Vintage All Over?

What's RED and White and VINTAGE all over?
My kitchen window, all dressed up for Valentines day!
After I took all the Christmas decorations down, my kitchen window looked so bare, I decided to decorate it for Valentines Day. 

I bought the little white tree and the cupcake and pink bird ornaments at Wal Mart before Christmas. I cut the little hearts out of felt with my Sizzix and added some cute little buttons. I added a few vintage Valentines to an old heart shaped candy box. For the Cupids at the top of the window, I used a vintage poster board Cupid and traced it onto some sparkly scrapbook paper.

I added the same little hearts to the "LAUGH" that I bought in the dollar section at Target and added a string of them to the little snowgirl. I suspended some vintage Valentines from the top of the window and tucked one under the arm of the little skiing snowman. 

The window makes me smile every time I walk in the kitchen and now I'm already planning a St. Patrick's Day theme and a theme for Easter. 
I'll be linking this post to:

    I need to re-boot my computer but now, somehow, I can't even delete that comment.

    Anyway...the message (and A+ above) is from me, Jenny.
