First things first. I have to right up front apologize for the terrible quality of my photos today. The camera I usually use for some reason does not want to download my pictures onto my computer. So I am using an older camera that does not seem to have the quality that I like, but I think that you can at least get an idea of what I have been doing.
It has been so cold and snowy here in Bountiful Utah that I don’t want to even get out of bed in the mornings! Soon after Christmas decor came down up came my sweet little Valentine decor. I find that Valentine’s day for me anyways is a very sweet bright spot to the winter dull drums of January and February. Being that I have a romantic theme going on in my home it makes it quite easy to transition in a few lovely hearts into my decor.
A few love letters and a hanging heart make the mail box a lovely spot for a Valentine theme.
I made a few lace hearts and printed some vintage looking Valentines from The Fairy Graphics (their website has so many wonderful printables to choose from) Then I just used my glue gun to glue them on this old grapevine wreath. Nice and easy. Cost zero!
I added a few hearts and angel wings on my coat racks.
A Valentine vignette dresses up the farmhouse table.
Stacks of wooden boxes and trunks in front of some old shutter doors makes for a perfect place for a Valentine display.
I bought a cloche to put my parents memorabilia in from their wedding 67 years ago. The crown is the one that Mom wore with her wedding dress and the chalkware bride and groom was on the top of their wedding cake. Then I put their wedding picture behind. It makes for a very lovely tribute to my parents.
Does this book look familiar to any of you. I received this in my Christmas stocking many years ago when I was 15. It was a very moving love story back in the late sixties.
Poor mans silver candle holders with a string of fair lights and a sweet bust makes for a lovely romantic scene on the fireplace mantle.
I would love to hear about what you do to decorate for Valentine’s Day!
Have a wonderful week!
