The Tale of the Rusty Milk Can

Valentine Bookmarks. That Home Depot Doesn’t Want You to Know About

I recently migrated my blog and some of the pictures didn't make the move. So imagine pictures where captions are.  Pssst. Last year I made homemade Valentines. I didn't buy them at the Dollar Tree.
