Valentine's Day Decorations 2012

Well, it is officially February 1st and I finally have my Valentine's Day decor up!  I don't know about you, but January seemed to fly by!

I have been quite behind this year than normal with getting my Valentine's decorations up but I have been knee deep in purging and simplifying my home.  As a result, my holiday decor reflects this.

I wanted to have fewer knick knacks and focus on a just a couple things that had bigger impact.  And I must say, I am quite pleased with the results!

A little heart wreath on our front door...which I made blog years ago...

I am really loving the hanging heart doilies I made last year.  I find that I love hanging my paper snowflakes at Christmas

It is a bit Anthropologie I think...they always have beautiful and creative handmade pieces hanging in their display windows. 

I am learning that this adds a festive backdrop that does not take away from the existing decor but rather it compliments it instead.

The first banner I made years ago and says "Be Mine."  The bottom banner I made this year by  taping doilies, vintage cards, and tying little heart ornaments to a piece of lace ribbon.

Can I just mention that I am loving my new lens...

A few little DIY valentine chocolate boxes...

Hanging all the ornaments on the chandelier is my favorite...not sure what it is...I do not even hang ornaments on it at Christmas...but I find it pretty perfect...

And just a fun little past season Target wreath in the bathroom...

Happy February friends!  Any Valentiney plans over the next two weeks?
