I have some Valentine's Day decor to share with you today. I know Valentine's Day is still three weeks away, but I wanted to enjoy my decorations for more than a few days. You may remember me telling you before that my maiden name was Valentine...Vicky Valentine. :)
While I don't do much for Valentine's Day, I do enjoy having a few things out for the occasion. Most of the things I am sharing are thrifty finds, but these two ceramic bears sitting on clouds below were painted by me years ago. They only make an appearance for Valentine's Day...:)
The table centerpiece got tweaked a little. I have been enjoying my fresh bouquets of camellias for the past couple of weeks. I placed my red and white checked table runner under the tray and added a couple heart shaped tea light holders to it. A glitter heart hangs from the bottle as well.
The banner I made last year is once again hanging on the china cabinet. A few red glitter hearts adorn the milk glass. Please ignore the lack of crown molding. We are slowly working on the trim, but very slowly!
Here's a closer view of the banner. It is made using tart molds.
I love this pretty rhinestone trimmed bucket. Don't remember when I bought it, but it was thrifted.
The clipboard on the gallery wall got a new print for the occasion.
The small wall shelf in the dining room received some decor too. Remember this beaded heart I thrifted a couple weeks ago?
A pretty heart shaped plate and some Scrabble tiles.
Just a few touches of red makes such a statement.
The buffet got the majority of the decor. I had thrifted two of these books a couple years ago, and the other two I got at the same yard sale as the red beaded heart I shared above. They are perfect for the holiday celebrating love.
Mama had several of these pretty glittery heart ornaments on one of her Christmas trees and I asked her if I could have one to use for Valentine's Day. Thank you Mama...I love you!
One end of the buffet.....
and the other end.
Here's the middle. I chose to use the bee with the word mine....BEE Mine, Valentine!
I hung a few things on the wall above.
Here it is all together. I love it!
I also love this.....
I was blessed to win a $200 Visa card on The Shabby Creek Cottage blog. I was so excited! I am trying to decide what to buy with it. I have narrowed it down to a new faucet for the kitchen sink since we begin renovating it soon, or use it towards the purchase of a Kitchen Aid mixer which I have been wanting for a while. I am leaning towards the faucet though. I don't really want the mixer until I get the kitchen redone anyway. Anywho, talk about a sweet surprise!!!
I hope you are having a lovely weekend. I'm having a productive one so far.
Until next time.....
