I’m not into all the fluffy hoopla surrounding hearts and cupids. But I do have a few small things(and yes they do include a couple cupid pics and hearts) that I add to whatever is left after I put the Christmas decor away. Just remember the emphasis is on SMALL. Just a little is ALL it takes:) Go to this post at Just a Girl to see some great Valentine’s decor. She got it just right!! And while you are there take some time to browse the rest of her blog. It’s a keeper!!
And now – here’s mine!!
My sheep stayed put after Christmas. They rather enjoy residing in my china cupboard. Puts them right out there in the spotlight! The bottles are from a stash I gave my sister for Christmas 2009. I had jokingly said a few times since that I should have kept some! I kinda liked the stuff she used them for:) So she gave some back this year for Christmas. Thanks sis! The hearts are some vintage picks I found at the Springfield flea in September.
Pitcher that my sis gave me for Christmas. Love it. It’s white and it’s a pitcher. Nuff said.
Vintage inspired valentines card that I bought at McMaster and Storm back in the days of their brick and Mortar store.
A few years ago I ordered some stickers that are reproduced from vintage postcards. I tuck them in a FEW places. Too many would be tacky.
Valentine I made for my hubby last year. I used a vintage card that had vintage seam binding on it. Wish they still used cardboard for seam binding.
Valentine one of my girls received several years ago.
My boxwood wreaths from Christmas stayed. They will probably stay at least through spring. I will change out the red/cream ribbon after Valentines. Maybe. If I get to it. One of the things I love about boxwood is that it can be worked into your decor year round!
Tuck in a Cavallini Valentines postcard and you have instant Valentine’s decor! And just wait till Easter! I love decorating for Easter. Just a few more weeks… then the eggs, nests and bunnies can come out in full force! But remember – not TOO much or it gets tacky. Thank you.
Another Valentine one of ‘the Sisters’ received. I liked it so it got to stay.
Matchbox that was included with the goodies I got from McMaster and Storm for Christmas. Well, they were from my Mom but she bought them at Mc&S.
The antlers are still finding a place in my decor.
