OBG Blog Hop Today!!

It’s time for our Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop for February. I hope everyone had a sweet Valentine’s Day ~ scroll to the bottom to see our little Valentine ~ I know we’re pitiful. You should have come here from Stamp with Me Cindy G, or if you need to go back to the start, go here to Cindy’s Antics 

The challenge is to use something we have not used for 6 months. Well, I’ve had this paper for actually a few years and have never used it. I started posting this “book” for Pink Saturday and it will be a work in progress using up older papers and bits and bobs of this and that. Little trinkets and vintage linens I’ve picked up here and there and some I’ve made myself. All of the buttons are vintage ~ found in a shopping foray with my Mother-in-law about 2 years ago to several antique shops ~ the thread in the far right button is the original.This is just one of the “finished” (I think) pages. If you would like to see the cover scroll down to the next post ~ and it actually may not be finished at all…..

And then there’s our little Valentine…

He LOVES his little funny collars, runs and begs when we get them out, and just look at that tongue…

From here, go to the blog of the amazing Vicki at Bountiful Blessings for more fun.

Take care friends,

Dru
