Hey, it’s Britt again! I’m excited to be blogging this particular day, because I’m going to talk about one of my favorite holidays…Valentine’s Day! I love Valentine’s Day for many reasons.
I love the colors, the hearts, the sweets and the endless gifts you receive from your loved ones. I fell in love with Valentine’s Day as a small child. My favorite memory of Valentine’s Day was receiving roses, a small box of chocolates and a small plush bear at school. My grandparents always made sure to send me a Valentine every year. Along with my parents, my sister and I always had a bouquet of roses and candy waiting for us at home after school. Valentine’s Day just made me feel extra special. As I became older I started baking with my grandma. We would make Valentine sugar cookies every year! We would collect various heart cookie cutters just for V-Day and bake away. Now that I am older I cherish all those little moments I had as a young child. There is always that one holiday or special event that makes you feel warm and happy. For me it is Valentine’s Day.
Pictured below you will see an item or two that may make you reminisce. For me the vintage V-Day card and the heart cookie cutter bring many memories to my mind.
P.S. the items pictured in this blog are available for sale at Floorplan. Shop at our store and make your loved one or home feel special.
We have also made several Valentine’s banners/garlands with various styles to suit your style, including vintage letters, crocheted hearts and burlap! Check out our slideshow below to see more Valentine's Day items in stock!
Well, most people can probably level with me on this issue (money...or lack thereof); however, sometimes the smallest change in a room can have a tremendous impact on the overall look and feel of an entire home! Don't be duped by mainstream television ... you can do a lot with a little!
Have you ever considered re-upholstery?
Let's face it...our society is incredibly wasteful. When something breaks, we've been conditioned to march ourselves right down to the store (or go online...even worse...instant gratification!) and buy a new one; a few hours later the old one is out on the curb or in the trash.
But what if that something is an heirloom? What if that something is made of solid wood and really just needs some TLC? What if you're just plain tired of buying new somethings constantly?
So much can be said for a fresh coat of paint in any space, but the same can be said for fabrics. Whether you love more traditional fabrics, real leather, or even vinyl (I'll hop on the retro wagon any day of the week), you can completely alter the look and feel of any space with new fabric...and it doesn't have to be expensive!
At Vaughn's Cabinets, we've been in the upholstery business for years now. We work with the best suppliers in the region to provide beautiful and durable materials for all your upholstery needs. We take great care to bring your heirlooms back to their original gusto!
