The Sweetest Month

Hello, all,

How are you this fine February Monday? It is very dreary, overcast and cool here, all the more reason to be grateful for an excuse to decorate for Valentine's Day. Here are some of my efforts so far:

Some seasonal M & Ms on the coffee table for Mr. B.

A wool felt garland of hearts on the bookcases, directly from a Target run today.

Ditto the little yellow bird carrying a heart in its beak that has perched on a corner shelf in the dining room.

We can't forget the front door. It has its usual grapevine wreath with curly wire and silver paper hearts from Ikea. Boy, was that ever a thrifty choice. They were bought at least 15 years ago, if not 20 and have held up amazingly well outside, year after year.

Do you enjoy the opportunity to have fun with Valentine's Day at this normally dull time of year? I think it's great to have an excuse to bring out more red after the letdown of putting Christmas away. 

Have a good evening, and stay warm!

All of your decorations are so cute! I love that felt heart banner strung across the bookshelves. The colors in that photo are wonderful! And I like catching a glimpse of you in the wreath photo!
