The winners are.../Happy Valentine's Day!

Wow! Due the high numbers of entries for my OWOH giveaway, I decided to add second and third place prizes (some cards and tags). I had 255 entrants in approx. a weeks time...fabulous! I used this random number generator that I saw on my friend Angie's blog....saved me a lot time! And now...without futher ado...the winners are:

1st prize winner-Lavender Hill Studio! Number 184
2nd prize winner-Eye-dyllic Number 201
3rd prize winner-Elegant Snobbery: The blog Number 27

Congratulations to the winners (I will be contacting you shortly) and I would love to thank everyone who entered! It was so much fun meeting new people and visiting new blogs. I plan to enter the giveaway next year...it was such a fabulous experience for me!

~~Ooooh! I just found out that I am a winner of one of the giveaways! I will be blogging about my win in the future (of course), so please check back!~~

Since today is Valentine's Day, I thought I would post some pics of my little Valentine display. I made my first party hat! It took me a little while to get it just right, but I am quite pleased with the result. Click on the pics to enlarge them.





The key is a Christmas ornament...I added the tassel.



My first party hat! The red/silver star on top of the party hat is a floral pick that I bought at an after Christmas sale. The vintage millinery flowers are from an Estate Sale.





The vintage Valentine cards are from an Estate Sale.



This is a red/black Christmas ornament that I bought at an after Christmas sale.



I bought this vintage hat box at an Estate Sale years ago.



I bought this heart pillow at Dollar Tree ($1) and added the embellishments.

Have a fabulous Valentine's Day!

Congratulations on your win! I love all your decor. I didn't put a whole lot out this year as the hub is traveling. He will be home later this evening though so I still have time to finish that Valentine's Day card! Phew! Happy Valentine's Day!

Everything is beautiful Julie, but my favorite is the little heart hanger. It is so sweet and the added embellies are the crowning jewels :~)
