Valentine's Decor: Tiered Tray Vignette


I was so excited about the tiered tray I found in time for Christmas Decor, and I knew it would become part my seasonal decor year round. A stroll through Dollar Tree and a few on hand things came together just perfectly for Valentine's Day. 

  • Tiered Tray (Thrifted Find)
  • Chalkboard Sign (Dollar Tree)
  • Battery Heart Lights (Dollar Tree)
  • Red Package Filler (Dollar Tree)
  • XOXO Muslin Bags (Dollar Tree)
  • Valentine's Stickers (Dollar Tree)
  • Glittered Hearts (Michaels)

I should have picked up a new chalkboard pen when I was at Dollar Tree because as I found out, the one I thought I was going to use was all dried up. No worries! I'd picked up a couple packs of stickers so...

I left the chalkboard sign unfinished and used a piece of chalk to rough up the background. Then I chose some of the stickers and placed as shown. 

The XOXO Muslin Bags come three to a package. I used two and stuffed them with wadded up paper to give them depth. 

I sprinkled the paper crinkles on the tray then put the heart lights on the bottom with one of the stuffed bags and a couple of glitter hearts. On the top, I placed the chalkboard sign, more glitter hearts and the other bag. Simple and festive! 

Easy Peasy!

Thrifting: Tiered Tray Vignette


I got out of the habit of hitting thrift shops during COVID and then just hadn't picked it back up until last week when I stopped at a Dollar Tree and there was the cutest shop next door. I wasn't in there 30 seconds before I spotted something I've wanted for a while, a very cool tiered tray. 

The price tag said $5.49. SOLD! Then I got to the register and the cashier said "Oh it's on sale!". $4.12 with tax. Then I got home and was curious, Googled it, and found the EXACT one on Mercri selling for $58! Happy dance commenced. It had a little tarnish and a water spot but for the idea I had in mind, it didn't matter. I grabbed some Barkeeper's Friend and cleaned it up!

Good enough for me and $4. I'd found some mercury glass trees at Target that I bought just because and glad I did because they went FAST. I had some other things on had that worked perfectly for this idea.

Mr. Chocolate found these lovely Nutcracker Ornaments when he visited his dad earlier this year. They're handmade by women in Kenya as part of a collective empowering women. 

I found these little wood trees at Michaels.

And these shiny silver Merry Christmas ornaments at a Japanese Dollar Store (OK $1.75 store). I placed the bigger items, filled in with the smaller ones including some mini bottlebrush trees and ornaments, then added some epsom salt for snow. 

I didn't want to cover the tray base completely. I like how it shows off all the components as well asit's own beauty! I was so excited, I forgot to look for a couple other things.Oh well, guess I'll have to do some more thrifting!

BFF Open House


Happy Friday and April Eve,eve! I think people either love April Fool's Day or they hate it. Count me among the latter, but if you love it, I hope your pranks are well met! Can you believe it's April already? March is going out like neither a lion nor a lamb here in the high desert. Windy but sunny. 

I've been attending the Crafting Adventure Summit I mentioned a few weeks ago, getting inspiration for some things I want to try and learning more tricks for my Cricut machines. I applaud those who put these on and develop content for them. Truly labors of love and sharing their creative passion. 

Finished up my Easter and Passover cards which I'll share next week. Let's take a look at some of the inspiring ideas for these holidays from last week's party! 

There's just something about moss bunnies. This collection and Tiered Tray from Penny's Passions is a lovely way to display them! 

Another gorgeous Tablescape in Blue (and more moss covered bunnies!) was shared by Bluesky at Home.

You could make a whole garden of these Candy Flower Treats from Whitehouse Crafts

Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box is back with this delicious-looking Flourless Chocolate Cake whch is perfect for Passover since no leavening, for those who are gluten-free, or for any time! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up and here's hoping Mother Nature keeps "April Showers" to an appropriate level! 

Let's see what you've all been up to this week!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
