The month of February not only has my birthday but Valentine’s day. I am too old to do much celebrating for either. I know I am loved all thru the year – so don’t need a big celebration on either day to tell me. I am spoiled – that is Leon’s fault – he tells me if we can afford it (what ever I want at the moment) to buy it.
I still have the mantel done in silver, white, and cobalt blue…for a snowy look. Same way with the coffee table. I posted some pictures back at the first of January. Yes, I have made some changes along the way.
But this is a new month – a new look for part of the house.
Made special for my honey…he counted up the points and thought he was worth more than 14 points! He is worth his weight in gold!
This tree was Christmas decoration I got at Hancock’s last year for $2.00. It does not look Christmassy to me – with the addition of the hearts it looks great as a Valentine item. Painted the Dollar Tree birds white and added Cricut swirled cutouts for the candles – place on a red linen cloth on a white tray completes this setting.
Added white paper lace doilies to soften the look…looks more romantic this way.
Added some white milk glass and red salad plates to give this area a completed look. Some how the cobalt blue just did not look right at this time….but it will return…you can be sure of that.
Found this vase last week at Good Will for 50 cents…I knew it would fit perfect with the Valentine theme. Added the white roses and red sparkly heart picks…great look I think. These scalloped vases were clear…painted them red. I think they originally were candles but can not remember for sure.
That completes the Valentine tour.
