Vintage Tea-themed Valentines
My latest collecting craze? Vintage tea-themed Valentines. My fledgling collection was found through Ruby Lane Antiques, Etsy and eBay, ranging from about $2-5, which is a great "price point" for these pieces.
Next year, when I have (hopefully!) acquired a few more, I plan to create a little vignette with them. Meanwhile, I am scanning these as I get them and plan to use them in making crafts. The heart-shaped "Tea-Sing" one was actually red when I bought it, but my sweet friend Deberah pinkened it for me in Photoshop so I could have it in a colorway I will actually use. I scanned all of these as high-res images, so if you want to download them to your computer for whatever use of your own, you certainly have my blessing to do so.
And these aren't Valentine cards, but I thought it would be appropriate to make today's giveaway a pack of cards. If you'd like these cheery Mary Engelbreit teapot cards, well, you know the routine by now! (And yes, you can win more than once this week, so comment away!)
