Did you get the memo?

Valentine's Day is fast approaching!

Last year, before I was a blogger, I probably would have hung a Valentine's wreath on the door, baked heart-shaped cookies for my kids and called it done.

Now that I 'live' in blog-land and actually have followers (yay), I know that's just not gonna cut it!

Soooo, I've been working really hard creating some simple Valentines projects that anyone can do.

If you're a regular follower, you might remember my burlap and drop cloth trees. They were just too pretty to put away! I love the neutral colors so decided to keep them out and make little garlands. They went up on my mantle, which got a bit of an overhaul...

I used two different techniques to make these pretty fluffy/ruffled swags to drape across my mantle.

I have been wanting to make a mini-pallet out of wood shims for some time. I finally got around to doing that and painted a heart on it and I love how it turned out...I also made a tiny chalkboard pallet.

I made and stuffed these little felt hearts....and decided they'd look really cute in my aqua berry colander on the table as a centerpiece.

One thing always leads to another (that's just how I roll) and pretty soon I was cutting out paper hearts in red and aqua and loading up a mason jar....I'll tell you my idea for those in another post.

To keep it from getting too girly, I incorporated touches of aqua wherever I could. I shopped my house and pulled an old window from upstairs to use on my mantle, a bucket and other touches here and there. Red and aqua is a favorite color combo of mine but it's really great with pink as well.

This small metal mannequin I bought at Home Goods years ago and spray painted pink for Little Diy's room was hung with a sweet little white dress that Little Diy wore when she was two. You may remember the dress from this post about how to decoupage a clipboard. I'm so glad I saved several of her sweetest little dresses!


I added a few other little touches too, but I'll share those another time...

I think the look I've achieved is cottage-shabby-Valentines-chic :)

In the next few weeks I'll show you how to make all the projects that I've shown in this post so you can make them for your home too.

I didn't buy anything...I just shopped my house or used items I already had on hand...but everything is very inexpensive and should be easy to find. Here they are again, all together...

I hope you'll be back for the tutorials!
