Look at what it looks like outside here today!!
Carter does NOT understand why I take so many pictures.
Look at his face.
Can you tell?
Hot chocolate and basketball.
Back to the snow.
Ryan brought the boys' ski clothes down from the attic,
and the party was on.
This is where I spent most of Sunday.
With the fire going.
Next month is "LOVE" month,
but I decided to break out the decor now,
so we could enjoy it for more than just 2 weeks.
Sass, you might need a "vomit bag" with all
the shmoopiness you're about to encounter.
I found the directions for the heart garland on Martha Stewart's site,
Remember my NOEL letters from my Christmas mantle?
I used the L, O and E and just bought a V (I painted and blingged that bad boy out.)
to spell LOVE.
I added a little ribbon and a rose to the O.
Remember these candles from Christmas?
There's no need to reinvent the wheel.
Use what you already have.
I made these tags to hang on the candlesticks.
I used these 3 red guys in a Christmas vignette.
Same black and white polka dot ribbon.
I just changed the contents under the glass domes.
It's kind of hard to see because of the glare,
but all I did was cut out hearts from scrapbook paper,
sprinkle a few scatter hearts, wrote a Valentine themed word on the hearts
Ryan and I bought these kissing monkeys in New Orleans,
and I thought they were perfect for Valentines.
Have you noticed I love to decorate with these little signs?
I love these chalkboard hearts.
I wrote on them with a chalkboard marker
and adhered them all over the place.
I made this for a lamp that needed some love.
I bought this little sign in the craft section at Hobby Lobby.
It was primed and ready to be painted.
I changed out the ribbon, sprayed it with chalkboard paint, added a heart
and wrote on it with...again...a chalkboard marker.
A $2.99 purchase from Target.
See the "LOVE" cross stitch?
I changed out the Scrabble tiles.
I'm jumping the gun on Valentine's Day,
but who cares!
