I "Heart" Snow White...Valentines Crafting!
I "Heart" Snow White!
When blogging pal, Tammy, found this Snow White magazine cover for me on Pinterest I knew at that moment what my theme for Valentines crafting would be. The first thing I did was print a larger version of this darling graphic on printable fabric and applique it to a white tee-shirt shirt to wear on my Valentines trip to Disneyland. I will wear it with a red sweater or hoodie and everyone will stop me to ask which shop I found it in. Lol...I just love messing with other Disney tourists. If I am feeling especially
obnoxious whimsical I will tell them I got it in a little shop in Fantasyland.
Snow White's Valentine Party...
Garden Party in a Chocolate Tin...
It took some searching on Pinterest, but I was able to find Snow White and all seven of the the Dwarves Valentines from 1938. I just love the soft colors and Snow White's sweet expression. The tin was an oval about 10 inches long. The cottage backdrop was from a Snow White playset I bought at Disneyland last fall. I will be using the playset figures in another project.
The Dwarves are so cute and quirky!

Tiny Tea Cup Ornaments....
Tiny Tin Tea Cups Fairy Garden Ornaments.
I have been wanting to make some of these tin cup ornaments since I saw them on Pinterest. They are inspired by "Dime Store Chic." I was unable to find any of the cute little tin cups until a few weeks ago when one of my favorite bloggers, Meri of ImagiMeri's offered some for sale on Facebook. I hope she likes what I did with them. So far I have only made these two, but my daughter Sascha...who loves Alice in Wonderland...thought they would be cute using Alice figures for cake toppers. I'm hoping there will be an Alice-themed wedding in the next couple of years.
The wee cups are only 2" across.
I want to attach them to ornament clips when I find some.
Snow White cake topper came with seven gnome-like dwarves.
The dwarves have little tools and wheel barrows.

Water Tower in Stanley's Oasis...Cars Land!
I just love Cars Land in Disney California Adventure. They built the whole town of Radiator Springs...which amazes me. You could spend a week there and never see all the detail built into that attraction. The line for Radiator Springs Racers takes you into Stanley's Oasis which has a Route 66 vibe with its old garages and a building made out of vintage oil bottles. Entering the Oasis, you pass by the cutest old water tank...the 8 and 3/4s Wonder of the World. I just love everything about it. This Christmas, my DIY DIL, Lori, surprised me with my very own Stanley's Oasis water tank. I can't believe she made this for me!
Isn't it the cutest thing ever?
Have Fun Valentines Crafting and...
