Retro Craft Friday: Heart Wreath

From the 1959 Alcoa’s Book of Decorations, here’s more foil art for Valentine’s Day. It took me a bit to identify this one. In the past few years around Valentine’s Day, I put up this book’s foil treasure chest and other decorations, but this one is intriguing. In case you can’t see, those are foil birds, with the wings and tail made with pleated foil. The wreath is crushed foil covered with small bunches of flowers. Then construction paper hearts and the foil birds are attached with thread and ribbon.

I was more interested in the cute petit fours there today.

It’s below zero here today and I’m getting ready for the annual Love is Murder conference http://www.loveismurder.net where I will meet my author friends including Molly MacRae! No doubt she will have a humorous post about this for us Monday.

In the meantime I’m shopping for the teen Un-Valentine Tasters event at the library on Monday and a family birthday party Sunday. Also I’m fitting in karate classes for both me and my son, book reviews, and an article due today. I don’t think I’ll ever be doing a class on Time Management!  Enjoy your weekend – stay warm!
