heart day mantel (and Canton part 3)

I never would have thought of doing a Valentine's Day mantel until I got hooked on blogging... Here's my first effort. I purchased the wire memo board at The Gypsy Pearl during my Canton outing. I really purchased it for my kitchen (and will be putting it there later). However, on the way home, I realized that it would be fun on the mantel for February. I wanted to kick myself when I thought about all the beautiful vintage Valentine cards that I had admired but not purchased while in Canton. Oh well, thank goodness for the internet. I downloaded some images and printed them on cardstock. It's almost the same... I will definitely purchase some real ones the next time I get an opportunity to. I had the doilies on hand for my classroom. I brought the cherub in from my backyard and changed the candles to red. Here's a previous post about the XOXO printing blocks.
These are some photos of the Gypsy Pearl at Canton.
That is a real clock in a canvas. Love it. Might have to go back for it.
They also have a sister store:
I'll tell you what I got there in another post :).
