A Little Valentine Decorating

Hi Everyone! I thought I would share a little Valentine decor with you. I did a little vignette on my island using a white wire tree and ornaments I found at Hobby Lobby. I found the bunny and cute little clown on the heart at a sample sale in Dallas. I just love that bunny...he is so cute!
 
 The polk a dot hearts are laying around the base of the tree with a love sign propped up against the trunk.

 I also did a Valentine tablescape on my kitchen table. I made the lantern swag and pulled out my red place mats and napkins from Christmas. I tied the napkins with some heart ribbon and added a beautiful rhinestone pin in the middle of each of the ribbons.


 Simple and elegant...
Happy Valentine decorating!!

Valentine Lantern Swags



Well, it's time to move on to the next holiday! We are only about a month away from Valentine's day. I am always excited about Valentine's day because I know that spring is just around the corner!

Most of you have seen the lantern swags I've been making for the different seasons and holidays. Here are some Valentine ones I recently sold. I am making more and will also be starting on spring items soon.



As most of you have noticed I have not posted my Share Your Creations party since November. I had every intention of starting it back up but have decided to go ahead and cancel it. I appreciate all of you who joined it and loved looking at your creations. There are several reasons I have decided to cancel, but the main one is that I am getting very busy with my online store and want to focus on it right now. I will be posting here on my blog when I have something to share. If you would like to be updated on items I have for sale you can follow me on Facebook
Have a great week!!
