Goodbye Winter, Hello Valentine's

Now that I have finally packed away all the Christmas/Winter stuff, I can bring out my Valentine stuff. Is it just me or does everyone have a dozen or so boxes of Christmas stuff and nothing for Valentine's day?!! My kids love when I decorate the house with seasonal things and I usually try to pick up something every year to add to our collection. Valentine's Day decorations are slim around here...not sure why, but here's a few things I have...

Where these roses sit,  a tall Nutcracker and some penguins spent a short winter by candlelight...
We have hearts and wooden blocks that spell L O V E...





where a wreath, stockings and a dozen  small nutcrackers once stood...

The table beside the front door once held a sleigh full of Christmas potpourri and an Advent Calendar...

 Now, there is a wooden bowl full of sparkling Valentine hearts...

And an individual heart in each vase, declaring LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE.



Finally, we removed the glittery Christmas poinsettia leaves from our large vases by our Grandfather clock...

In it's place, are pastel flowers that are light and breezy...reminding me that Spring will indeed, be coming soon!




Do you have Valentine's decorations? Do your kids like to help to decorate?

  1. I have never heard of anyone doing decorations for Valentines Day but what a BRILLIANT idea! I love (haha), the sparkly hearts and the L-O-V-E letters. How fabulous :)

  3. Suzy and Jonnique, many of the things I have, I have purchased either after the season when they are majorly marked down, or even the $1 Store or, the $1 section at Target! Every once in a while, I will come across something that I will splurge for, but only if it can be used for more than one occasion. Thanks for commenting!
