So I wanted to show you the ONE "pretty" thing I got to do this weekend--that is, Friday we DID finally get ALL the Christmas stuff back into the attic(do I get some sort of "late" prize for that? lol.)! That allowed me to get out the Valentines!
Here's the little tree:
I set it into a vintage suitcase that I had layered red and white fabrics into, and the whole thing sits on an OLD luggage rack that I covered with a white tablecloth and a red burlap square. It sits by my kitchen bar, between the dining area and the craft nook--a very high traffic zone, which just means we get to SEE it.
A few sweet heart ornaments and some fun tiny stuffed animals that belong to the kids all tucked into the branches.
Teddy bears with flowers and little girls loving their dolls, my ME cherry ornaments, and a friendly, "sisterly" reminder. We NEED that around this house! :) Sweet pictures of my little ones(when they WERE little)round out the scene.
Of course, I have to add in my tea things, as I DO love to do a Valentine's Day tea party with my girls!
The Boy helped me by decorating the little bitty valentine tree--I set it on an OLD Igloo cooler we found in a former home--it's red and white, with a snowflake on top! We used rustic-themed ornaments on this one. It rather looks like some little lovebirds decorated it.
Here ARE some lovebirds, and more tea things.
View from the floor. I guess you might call it the dustbunny point of view.
More tiny tea pots!
I snuggled some warm fuzzies and sweet homemade valentines in around the bottom of the tree.
I hope your day is LOVE-ly!
