Sweet Conversations

Let me tell you How Much Fun a trip to the Dollar Store can be!  I took my two Kiddos 25 and 15 last time I went and they had me literally peeing my pants!  Something about the Dollar Store has them rolling in the Aisles.  I hear LOTS of "Hmmmm, how much is this?" as they pick up an item and try to find a price tag.  Unusual things end up in my cart like Giant Sunglasses, Rubber Duckies, Airhorns and anything to do with The Little Mermaid. (Miss Beaux has a penchant for anything Ariel).  

Anyway, we were there to find Apartment goodies for my eldest and while I was there I picked up some Valentine Themed items.

 I loved the soft colors of the Conversation Hearts that I bought and somewhere I thought I had seen something on Pinterest where the flowers were in a jar full of the hearts.  But, when I looked back in my file I didn't see it!  I must have imagined it or my poor eyes were just blurry from too much Pinteresting! 
Can you relate?  

Here's how easy it was:
I bought three vases at the Dollar Store ( I forgot how much they were, hehe). 
And I placed a plastic cup inside and started filling it up with the hearts, varying the colors.
 I tried the brighter colors but I only had my roses at the time left over from my "Isn't it Romantic" tablescape so I ditched these. 
Aren't these funny though?  
I like the High Heel and the Crown.  
These were also a Dollar Store purchase in the small boxes.  They were called 
"Diva Hearts".  
 So, that's it!  
Add Water and Flowers and display. 
Makes a cute addition to your table decor or in a Vignette.
These roses have almost seen their last day...... Makes for interesting pictures though.  I've been practicing a lot with my camera and editing programs to see what I like.

Super cute idea! The roses go really well with it. You said "literally" peeing your pants, so I guess "Clean up in aisle 5!" was not just pickle juice this time! :-)
