Valentine House and A Marvelous Mess #47 and Features!!!

With the help of my Munchkin, I made this little Valentine House decoration. It's another cute addition to the February decor I'm making for our house. A few weeks ago I made Valentine Burlap Love Birds. And, I've got some fun stuff from the past couple of years as well HERE

We started with a simple wood birdhouse from Michaels and painted it in a gesso style with pinks, whites, and burgundy's. The roof was covered with wet Glitter Snow.

 The Birds you see here:

are made out of polymer clay, paints, feathers, and wire. 

Pretty Caaa-uuute. Wouldn't ya say?

Now....on to my fave's from A Marvelous Mess #46:

Homemade Baileys from Nifty Thrifty Things. Um, Yum?!?!? That looks incredible. Pinning for sure!!

Brownie Peanut Butter Cups from Raising Oranges.

Fennel Cough Syrup and Fennel Honey from Natural Health and Prevention. What an incredible post!! Pinning, pinning, pinning!!!

And, the project I'm going to feature on my sidebar is.....

Valentine Candy Cane Hearts from Happy Canadian Home. This idea was totally new to it!!!!
