Christmas is over - too early for Spring - Valentine's Day is so close - ready for theme decorating.
If you have been around me for very long you know I am constantly changing things on the dining room table. Also make a few additions or changes to other places in the house. Now that I have my Cricut machine I can make cut outs and words that I couldn't do before...so will be making "things" utilizing the machine...and not just using it for scrapbooking pages. This is on the side board in the dining room. Used shades of pink to create the 12 x 12 plaque. If you have not used any Martha Stewart glitter before - try it. It is cut into such small fine pieces that is does not give the appearance of glitter we are used to using. This MS glitter looks like it was the original paper and not added later.
Just used things from around the house to put on the dining room table. The runner was one I made last year for Valentine's decorating...candles being red are useful at Christmas as well as now. The wreath is about 15 years old - you can't tell but it is heart shaped. Oh, yes the glass gem pieces around the candles are new. These candles are sitting in a pedestal cake plate - I just put another white plate in the center of it so the surface would be level.
Here are some pictures of the way the hall tree is decorated...nothing fancy - whimsical and carefree.
I made this valentine for my sweet husband - he has so many things on his table by his recliner I just tucked it in the lamp shade. I cut all the words and the hearts using one of the cartridges on my Cricut machine.
These love items will stay out for the month of February...then March - Easter and Spring will be used.
I decorate to please me - nothing House and Garden would want - but I am happy.
Question: do you decorate to reflect your personality...or the latest trend?
Stay warm...and inside away from the bad weather.
