Happy (Early) Valentines Day!

Good Morning, Blog Friends!

Here in the Willamette Valley, we are experiencing our second snow storm of the season.  I can tell you that this never happens.  All we normally get is rain, rain, and more rain.  Well, we are still getting rain alright, but it is in the form of the freezing kind on top of the 8" of snow on the ground.  The roads are treacherous, it hurts your face to go outside, and I am trapped in the house with Maddie, two teenage boys, and my husband.  Not fun.  Can you say Cabin Fever?  I've got to get out of the house today.  But before I do, I thought I would take a minute to share with you my Valentines Day decorations for this year.  I can't believe it's sneaking up on us so quickly.  Kind of like that snow falling outside my window right now....


One good thing about being housebound is that I have gotten a little crafty.  I made myself a little banner out of vintage valentines, rick rack, and buttons. 


 

My cute window shelf


I love digging through old valentines searching for either donkey ones or cowboy themed ones.  My collection is growing so I am going to have to find another cute way to display them.


I got the mason jar and conversation hearts idea off of Pinterest.  Easy 5 minute project which is perfect for me.


I need on more valentines box to have a new collection!


Last year, I was so exhausted from putting away my Christmas decorations that I didn't put out my Valentines Day ones.  I was happy to not feel that way this year!


Cute old tin I found at a garage sale.

 

And what holiday display would be complete without some pretty Pyrex?


Here is a full shot of my display.  I was able to keep it confined to one area this year but hopefully I find enough before next year that I am forced to spread it around the house!

Linking up with The Cottage Market for Junkin' Joe & How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday.

Have an awesome weekend!!

  1. You have a lovely display. I love your garland you created with the rick rack and valentines. Here in KC we usually get plenty of snow but we are used to it. We have 11 inches on the ground today but sunshine is coming. Try to get out so the cabin fever leaves.

  3. At least with the crazy snow outside the red and pinks of Valentine's Day makes a cheery scene. House bound up here this a.m. again and the snow is coming down hard. Tom has to head to work, and thinking some crepe paper flower crafting is on the agenda for today. Hope you break out of the cabin fever scene at your house. (I can always walk to Stars too!)

  4. I just love that garage sale tin.

    We had our like 10th snowstorm this past week, of course I thrifted in it. We had a gigantic ice storm this year, too. It was lovely. Snow in the city is so disgusting.

  11. All your decorations are so pretty, and of course I love all the kitchen glass - you have pink Pyrex stripes!!! We're about to get snow for the second time this winter, and I'm in South Carolina...I don't think that's happened before. I haven't told the kids yet, they're going to have a fit! -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com
