Honeycomb, Be My Own

Rats. Now I've got that 50's hit stuck in my head

Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own

(Gad.... yes, I AM old...)

This past week I visited a Value Village I hadn't been to in awhile - it's normally out of my way, but when I found myself in the area I decided to check it out. What a good thing I did! I found three separate bags of honeycomb bells and hearts! For $5 a bag, I brought home a total of 44 honeycombs - some are newish, but there are a few vintage ones in the lot too. White, red, black, blue, yellow, pink; in four different sizes and various shapes. My "new" old suitcase is the perfect place to store them:


I love the two scalloped bells. I think the pastel colours will add a nice touch to some Easter decor come Spring.


A vintage red one (made in Denmark) already hangs in my studio.


And I couldn't have had better timing finding the eight white hearts. They look great on the mantel with my vintage Valentines.


The red and white lace is also a thrift store find from awhile back. Five hearts are hung with red ribbon here:


And three surround my cinnamon hearts candy dish:


The best thing about honeycombs? They fold up flat and are easy to store away from curious kitties too. ;)

Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. Thank you Katherine! The red one is old and has deep red edges which is hard to see in the photo; but it is very cool with a two-toned effect - I am sure a product of time, not made that way.

    1. Laurie, I have to admit you are my inspiration for many things, these included! Your collection of honeycombs is amazing... I am always floored by what you find! You may just like something I got on eBay on a Buy It Now last week... I'll post about it before Easter as it features a very cute bunny and lots more honeycombs!
