Spreading the Valentine Cheer

So yesterday I finally dug out my box of Valentine's Day decorations and started adding bits and pieces throughout the living room and kitchen.

The little shelf in the kitchen received a few items to add a little red.

The heart drawing on the chicken wire frame is my first attempt at water colors.  The girls and I were playing around with them the other day.

I made this Valentine a couple years ago and it is still a favorite item to display each year.

I added a few things to the kitchen sink window as well.

Isn't red and white amazing!

The final touch in the kitchen was to hang a grouping of hanging hearts from the shelf hooks.

Some of the hearts I've made in previous years.  The striped and gingham hearts are new this year.

In the Living Room  I added my collection of vintage Valentine Day card to the tote on the hutch.

I like them all grouped together like this.

I also added some newly sewn mini heart pillows.
After placing them in a bowl, I built a little display around them.
Turned out sort of cute I think.

These little boxes are from Micheal's - I thought they were adorable.

A few beaded hearts where hung around the room as well wherever I could find a spot.

And finally, beadboard hearts were scattered here and there as well.

And that my friends is all this lady is doing for Heart Day this year!
