Valentine's Day will be here in a week. Do you decorate for the heart holiday? Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. A couple of years ago, I did. I used my favorite black and white checked ribbon to make bows on red and white heart shaped paper doilies..then tied them on a pine wreath on my front door.

I stuck some more doilies on the mantle in the yellow berry garland I had there...with the "heart" banner I made-my very first one!

And I used them on my year round tree, making it into a Valentine's tree!

This year, I haven't decorated at all. I did place some of my white dishes on top of the corner china cabinet and leave the red berry and pine garland from Christmas to light it up. I will show you some pictures of that later. I like the way it looks...sort of festive, but not so much that my family makes fun of me.
I have another blog for you to check out. It's a new one to me, and boy, is it fun!! It's called Visual Vamp. The owner has lots of pretty pictures. You know I've gotta love a blogger who has her own tiara/crown/diadem collection!! Hope over and join the carnival!
We might get more snow Monday night! I would love to see one more "event" and then I think I'll be ready for spring. I have lots of plans for my yard that I'll be sharing soon!
Until then,

Cathy I love what you did for Valentine's Day. I don't decorate anymore. I especially love how you were able to use the red birds and berry garland.
