Repurposed Window Cottage Sign

Custom Cottage Sign from a Repurposed Window  | Denise on a Whim
Maybe it's the freezing cold weather that we're currently stuck in.
Maybe it's the old window frame.
Or maybe it's just cottage-envy, plain and simple.
But I think this might just be my favorite custom sign ever!

Passionate, Weird Life Salvaged Wood Sign

Passionate, Weird Life Salvaged Wood Sign from Denise on a Whim
If there is one word that my friends might use to describe me, 
it would probably be weird.
But, you see, I'm totally okay with that.
I think they mean it as a compliment...

A friend of mine gave me this really nice vintage suitcase.
I just love the coloring on it.
The way it has naturally aged is quite beautiful!

I'm not one to make many wreaths,
but I'm just a little in love with this simple burlap and vintage button wreath!
It looks pretty darn adorable with my Valentine decor.

Hearts, Hearts and More Fabric Hearts!

Drop Cloth Hearts with Faux Stitching from Denise on a Whim
For Valentine's Day this year, as with every holiday really,
I started from scratch on my decorations.
I typically end up selling everything I make for myself after i use it for one year,
much to my daughter's dismay!
She wants me to keep everything I make :)

Valentine Typewriter Vignette

Typewriter Decorated for Valentines Day from Denise on a Whim
I find it kind of hard to believe,
but I have never even shown you the vintage typewriter I snagged a few months back.
I thought I might better show it off a little while it's all decorated for Valentine's Day!
