Love is in the Air

It is always hard for me to take down Christmas decorations because my house feels so empty. Soooo this year I decided to turn the tree on our breezeway into a Valentine’s tree. I am sure my neighbors think, “Why have they not taken down their Christmas tree?” but up close it is pretty cute!

Valentine, You're really swell!

 

My mantle also got a bit of love. I strung  baker’s twine across the mantle and pinned vintage valentine’s across it with wooden clothes pins.

Here are a few upclose pics of some of my favorite Valentine’s:

 

 

 

 

Also, on my mantle I have 2 glass vase things (not exactly sure what you would call them- maybe an oversized Brandy glass??) that I have created miniature scenes inside. There is something about miniatures that I love. Just the other day my mom and I were shopping and picked up these little baskets that are about the size of a quarter, not sure what I will do with them but they are so tiny and cute and were only 10 cents!
