My Valentines Day Home

 

 

Well, my house looks like a little love nest!  Touches of pink and pretty.  Makes us all feel happy.
Which is especially good for us in the middle of winter in Canada!

 

Here’s a little look into our home…

 

The plan was to go a little crazy with my mantel this year.  And I tried all kinds of things up there, but it was just too much.  It just wasn’t me.  I like things simple.  Clean.

 

 

Nice and simple.  Just the way I like it.

 

 

My little winter trees.
I love these! I have been able to use them at Christmas, and on my Winter Mantel

and now for Valentines Day.

 

 

My yarn ball garland.  Love it!

 

 

I used cinnamon hearts to fill the candle holders that have permanent residence on my mantel.

 

 

A simple Valentines touch.

 

 

I made a picture out of conversation hearts.
Which by the way taste terrible!  I’ve never had them before, and they look better than they taste!
I put this on the shelves in the bookcases that surround my fireplace.
 

 

 

Purtay.

 

 

My coffee table, that I decorate for each season!
Love love this table!
Baby loves the cinnamon hearts!  But he gets so mad because he can’t get at them!

 

 

Fancied up the chandelier with some heart ornaments.

 

 

These enormous pink Christmas ornaments were given to me this year,
but they just didn’t match what I had going on.  So I brought them out for
Valentines, and hung them from strings in my eating nook.

 

 

Me.  In the enormous ball.
Don’t look too close at the mess in my house!

 

 

The ruffled heart hanger I made has it’s home on my front door.
Welcome!

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed your little Valentine tour!

    Hey from one suburban Canadian Mom to another I love your Valentine’s Day decorations (and the photos you took of them). Those yarn balls are such a good idea as is the cinnamon heart art (they do taste gross don’t they – kind of like soap).
