Wish we had before pics! The gum ball machine was totally cruddy. A little spit and polish and of course... WD40
Another wonderful gum ball machine. Just matched my vintage homemade Valentine.
Now we are getting serious! Ready, set, begin!
Hunter, my grandson, wanted to make his class Valentines. This is the one he made for me! Lucky Ghee (thats me)
Now this is what Hunter wanted to make mices for his class with peppermint tails.

Hope you have enjoyed my little Valentine vignettes . I received the gum ball machines for Christmas. My daughter's friend found them in her new/old house. She was going to throw them away!!! Thank goodness I was there for the save!

smiles, alice
