I have always admired my sister-in-laws knack for decorating. I recently started gathering items for my own decorating and started with my mantel. Here is February's.
I took the chalkboard from my sewing room and wrote famous quotes on it. "You complete me", "As you wish", "Ditto", and a few from the notebook. I made a heart garland with red, white, pink, and gray felt.
I found the pink moon printable here. I changed it a bit and added 'Always & Forever' at the bottom because that is the song my hubby and I danced to at our wedding. I found the oval frame at a local consignment shop, spray painted it red, and put the I Love you art that I posted about here in it. I removed the labels from a wine bottle, printed Elizabeth Barrett Brownings "How Do I Love Thee" sonnet, rolled it up, tied it with a red ribbon and put it in the wine bottle for a message in a bottle.
I bought an X and an O at JoAnn's. Another Valentines subway art found here. I found the frame and the cute candle stick at the consignment shop.
Best part was I actually had it all done for the first of the month. Funniest thing was my husband came to me to ask me if I wasn't feeling loved and that was why I was doing 'all this love stuff'. I made sure he knew I was fine and that I know he loves me! :)
