Valentines Hearts

I finished my little crochet garland. Someone asked for the pattern. I just found it on You Tube. There are so many how to's and instructions for things. I didn't even know how to do a triple crochet, so I Googled it.
I've showed these pillows before, but thought I'd add the link on how I transferred the patterns from vintage Valentines. So easy and fun to do.
My little Ikea Christmas hearts look cute in a vintage scale.
Look what I received! A wonderful surprise from Elizabeth at Creative Breathing. I was honored to get this cute package. This little Valentine Bellhop is helped by his little bunny friend. Notice-he's standing on the state of Texas.Thank you, E! I love him.
She also enclosed some vintage valentines. I'll have to get busy on some crafting soon.
I've been sidetracked by some home fix it projects. One is a dishwasher in the middle of my kitchen.Waiting on a hose for Hubs to install. Hope you all in the Northeast made it through the blizzard safely and with heat and power. Can't wait to get back to some craftiness .I thought I'd leave you with a few pic's of the Dollhouse Sweet Shoppe. 
They are getting ready for the Valentines Day rush.
 Hope you all have a Happy Valentines Day!!!

And I love your Valentine pillows ...I seen them on your old post and it has been on my to do list for such a long time....I really love them .. you do beautiful work :)I love the one with the little girl and they call that redwork?..I've made several throw pillow covers ...I did Roy Rogers, Spring with buttons and birds, and I did a fall one but I still need to make Christmas and Valentine pillow covers!
