Images of Vintage Valentines

I wanted to learn to make mosaics using photos, so I’ve been playing around with the prints of vintage Valentines that I used to decorate my home.  The mosaic was actually quite easy to make following the instructions given by Mary at Little Red House.

I love using vintage graphics to decorate for different occasions.  The great thing about using them is that it costs very little (basically just paper and ink!) and I think they add instant charm to vignettes. 

I also use vintage graphics, often postcards, to make place card holders for my table settings.  The place cards are super easy to make and really fun!
