Flash forward to the end. The good guys always win!
Our story begins in a forest of brown bottles bedazzled with tulips and Queen Annes Lace. A dozen stems doesnt always mean roses. Go with what you love!
A little closer look at the forest that lie between true love for Jack and Diane. If you are having a dinner party separating the flowers into individual vessels allows you to send a gift home with each of your guests. Share the love!
Say hello to Diane whos on her merry way to meet Jacky... or is she?
Sooo many obstacles and labels! Will she be able to navigate her way and find her one true love?
Meanwhile, on the east end of the bottles, Jack hits the road in his trusty wagon to find his Valentine, the beautiful Diane.
Little did Jack know that Diane was currently riding on the back of another boys scooter.
Faster, Jack, faster! Did you forget the other guy has a scooter!!!
The other guy may have a scooter, but Jacky has a little secret of his own tucked in his back pocket.
Along with his secret potion, he has a vintage card....
A romantic message...
and the rest is history. They lived happily ever after.
 
The End.
Flash forward to the end. The good guys always win!

I may have had way too much fun with this post. Oh wait , there is no such thing as too much fun! It all started out as a sneek peak at something you will find in the new book, but with the introduction of vintage Valentine's Day cards it took on a whole new twist and shout. That's the true beauty of what we all do. Give us some greeting cards, ordinary brown bottles, some metal type, and let the magic begin!

And use the tank lid as a shelf as in the Premier Issue of Junk Market Style. And then not sure which room to put it into. hummmmm :-) Posted: 2:50 pm on February 25th
CottageElements writes: Your stories are almost as much fun as your projects!! You are too funny! I love vintage bottles and I love the idea to use this for a dinner party and send a bottle home. I'm gonna have to remember this one.

I wish I could ask JCM if he is related to the Mr and Mrs "Mell-" that taught at my high school in IND. and if he really wrote the song for Chuck and Diane? It just sounds like them. wouldn't that be amazing?
I will have to get out may vintage valentines!

I always look forward to your floral arrangements...they never let me down, and this one is no exception. I love it and think that this is so darling! Who but you would make up a story to go along???

Beautiful as always, Sue. I like the "twists" your posts make. Fun stuff!

Very, very cute! I might have to cut into some of my old schoolbooks -- a 1958 copy of "See Us Play" Second level pre-primer.
