Valentine's Vignette

I wasn't going to do any decorating for Valentine's Day this year, but I just couldn't resist after seeing all of the adorable stuff on Pinterest and around blogland.

I used some things from last year and added in some new stuff to get what I think is a cute little vignette.  I don't have a fireplace with a mantle (one of those someday wishes) to decorate so this chest by my entry gets most of my seasonal attention .  I hung this sign that I made last year from the large mirror over the chest. The lettering and little felt rosettes are fun, so I had to use it again!

The sparkly heart garland was rehung to.  Why reinvent the wheel if what you have works?


I added a few natural elements in with pine cones left over from Christmas and some woven balls.


The rosette ball was made last year, but I nested it in some silver buckets found in the dollar section at Target and stacked bottom to bottom.  I also made a yarn ball and put it into another bucket.  Can ya tell I kind of liked these?  The red yarn is left over from a Valentine's wreath I'll show you tomorrow.


I staged it all on my white tray and threw in some candles, a cloche, and some blocks spelling what else?...L.O.V.E.  The only thing new is the yarn ball...the rest was fareee because I had it on hand!  Gotta love it!


 It's just a bit of decor on my "mantle" to celebrate the holiday.  How many of you decorate for Valentine's Day? Do you go all out or just do a little?

Even though it took some convincing, I kind of enjoyed my little decorating attempt!
