A Few Valentine Sweets

It was a gloomy day here in southern Mississippi, so I brightened it by making a few Valentine "sweets" to adorn our home.  It was rainy, so I'm glad I had everything I needed--some file folders, ribbon, felt....just simple stuff!





It only took about 30 minutes  to paint an old frame white and arrange some pretty buttons on some felt scraps.



I glued loops of ribbon onto a file-folder cone to make a fun Valentine tree....


Sweet!
