February – Hearts, candles, and Flowers

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.


Here are some pictures depicting the “Love” look. Some of the items are new, some are old, some have been painted to give a new look. 100_5580

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!

100_5634100_5738This  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.

100_5595The bears and sign have been around for several years now.


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.



Another repainted bird…Dollar Tree item. I like the birds better white than the original tan color…at least for this month.100_5727 

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.

Hi Amelia
Your place is so sweet in the reds and whites of Valentine's very pretty. The little birdies are so cute and all your candle holders and the peg lites holding the candles... Your hubby sounds so sweet and I'm glad he spoils you...*s*..
What date is your birthday?
have a wonderful day

Don't you love finding things here and there to make up new decorations for the home?!?!

We did the scrabble thing too this year. It gave Sweet Girl something to do one day while I was doing other things. She spelled out Valentine, Heart, I love you and Mom and Dad. ;)

When I was little I always wished I was born in Feb. :) Seemed like a pretty, girly, fun month.

Love your quilt. One of these days I want to learn to quilt but I'm gonna have to wait a little while.
