Welcome Valentine

It’s February first and I spent a few minutes popping up our meager Valentine’s Day decor.  A wreath on the front door, red ribbons for the dogs and some rather sad looking pansies (clearly they need Sister’s touch) dress up the front portico.

And a DIY pom pom garland and the requisite much anticipated cinnamon jelly heart candies (which I promptly removed to a hiding place after this photo) in the foyer round out the welcome.

Using the base from last year’s rather blah wreath and this Pinterest inspiration picture…

Valentines wreath

I came up with this…

And I spent a whopping $6 at Michael’s to do it! While I was there I picked up the same exact picks in the St. Patrick’s Day version.

So, ladies, that’s the extent of our Valentine’s decor for the year.  Now, I’ve got to go start enjoying the weekend :-)

I have got to get busy. I'm ashamed to say I have not put one little heart or valentine thing out as yet. Got to do better.
