Happy (early) Valentine's Day!
We don't typically do much for Valentine's Day around here, but I thought it would be fun to decorate this year!
If you've never been to my house in real life, let me assure you the lime green decorations were not an accident ;) Both my living room and kitchen are lime green, and I couldn't abandon it entirely for V-Day. I tried to be careful and make sure I didn't leave too much; I didn't want it to be Christmas-y!
This red frame around my favorite picture of my favorite boys was from Target. They have a Valentine's area, but this one was 1/2 price in the frames section.
This frame (which I love!) I spotted for 75% off at Lifeway because the stand on the back is broken. I just have it leaning against my mirror. Full price it's 7 bucks, which I never would have paid!
The hearts hanging in front of the mirror and the one behind the 'K' are plates from a few Valentines Day's ago. The metal 'KISS' is usually in our bedroom. I love the XOXO blocks that I have stacked - those are from the dollar spot at Target (for $2.50) and say 'kiss,' 'hugs,' and something I can't remember on the other sides. My heart garland is just made of construction paper hearts, strung on fake leather cord I had in my craft stuff :) I hot glued it to my mantel for hanging, and it will peel right off when I take it down. The sticky words on the mirror (hard to read in the picture, but they say 'kiss kiss' and 'love') were a gift from the kids I babysat last year.
I had a blast putting this together, mostly from things I had hanging around the house! Check out all the other Valentine Mantels over at The Stories of A to Z- the Valentine Mantel Party!
