Ok, so I know its only mid January, but...I was participating in my normal walk at Target, I always stop at those little bins in the front of the store-they always have something cute right? Then I saw them...pink and red mailboxes-yep-gotta get two for the kids. I just knew I could perk them up and when we gave the kids their Valentines gift I would put it in there. I also thought it would be fun to every so often put a Hershey Kiss or something small in and put up the flag stating they have mail----TOO CUTE!!! As you can see I am very excited about them, oh did I mention they were a whopping buck-yeppers one dollar! Crazy, again, LOVE Target! I am not sure why I am so excited about Valentine's Day this year but I am. The kids and I decorated a little tree with glass hearts in pink and red, white lights, and a red beaded garland, it looks mightly festive and fun. I have a piece of Valentine's monkey pattern fabric as the skirt. These mailboxes will just compliment it so well! I am working on a few other little things to complete the Valentine's display...then I must start thinking of the next one...I think Easter-ohh the ideas are coming right now! Enjoy the pictures...and get yourself a mailbox, you never know who might leave you a little gift!
Before, cute but plain
After one hour and a little magic:
The fronts (pardon the backgroud) I used rub ons for their names, I hot glued on the ribbon, and the heart and Love pcs are from Making Memories. I broke into my scrapbooking stash!
