Happy Valentine’s Day

I waited till the last possible moment to decorate for Valentine’s Day.  (I want to fast forward and decorate for Spring and Easter)!
When I found these cute hydrangea puffs at Michaels I became inspired.

I thought they would look adorable hanging from branches.


Our curly willow tree lost some BIG branches due to the weight of the snow that we got last month. So I grabbed a little saw and cut off what I wanted.

I ordered this cute sampler from here.
I saw it in the February issue of Romantic Homes and loved it. I doubt it will ever get stitched but that’s ok:)


The frame that holds the sampler is a thrifting find. So are the sweet little crystal cups.


In my cloche now are two sweet, white, chippy birds.


The tray that they sit on is a thrifting find as well. You may remember I posted about it here. I use it to house my glitter shakers. I decided it needed some color for my craft room and I painted it a pretty pink. I like how it looks under my cloche.

I painted some X’s and O’s in the same pretty pink and glittered them generously with some tinsel glitter.


It came together nicely!



I couldn’t leave the dining room table out.
So take a right and a little more pink awaits.


My mom gave me this sweet cherub pot when I was 16, I think. I remember she had put some lilacs in it and it smelled sooooo good.
It’s kind of perfect for Valentine’s Day!


Some wood candle holders I bought a long time ago, got a dry coat of ASCP in old white, then a little sanding.


Simple yet sweet.


Btw, the curio in the corner of the dining room had a makeover with none other than Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I will do a post about that one another day.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

It's so nice to hear you comment that you are interested in the craft room project! I'm excited that anyone else is excited. It will have a fun and fresh yet shabby chic feel, if there can be such a a combo! Thanks so much for commenting!
