Valentine Decor

I thought I would share my Valentines décor with you.  Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays.  I love the colors…and the hearts…and the candy—all of it.  It is also a day that’s very special to my husband and I because that is when he asked me to spend the rest of his life with me and, of course, I said “yes!”  My husband considers that our true anniversary—he’s so cute.  It is so hard to believe that was 24 years ago this Valentine’s Day.

Valentines Mantle

This is how I decorated my mantle for Valentine’s this year.  I kept the aquas that I used for Christmas and added the red.  I dream of painting the mantle a lovely creamy white someday, but until then…

love frames

My L-O-V-E frames that I painted heirloom white.  They are 5x7.  I added some scrapbook paper behind the glass then hot glued some wooden letters that I got from Hobby Lobby. They are covered with Martha Stewart garnet glitter.  By using hot glue to adhere the letters, I can easily remove them and use the frames for something else.  (I used the letters J-O-Y for Christmas, but forgot to take a picture.)

vintage painted books

Here is a close-up of the painted books that I posted about here

valentines vignette

A little vignette I pulled together (all made with Dollar Store finds)…with the Precious Moment figurine my husband gave me for our wedding.

painted cherub

…and I just had to include a picture of this little cherub that I painted with heirloom white!  I love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful pictures of your decor! Interesting that my husband thinks of our "engagement anniversary" the same way!
