Be Mine

Valentine's Day is not a holiday (can it even be called a holiday?) that I go all out and decorate for.

I do have a few touches that I like to add here & there.  My dining room hutch was the recipient of some of those touches.



I have had these bears for quite a few years now.  I have often thought of getting rid of them but since I don't have much in the way of decor anyway, I just keep them.   Well....that and the fact that there's a girl bear & a boy bear, which reminds me so much of my daughter & son, so it's kind of hard to part with them when I use that sentimentality. 


Some Dollar Tree heart picks that I added to a white pitcher.  The wooden hearts were one of my first Valentine's Day purchases as a newlywed a whole lotta years ago, made by a coworker's Mom.

Did you notice the little boxes next to my dish of fleece hearts?  (Fleece hearts can be seen here.)  Let's get a close up....




These sweet little boxes were made by my friend Melonie.  She painted the cute owl and bird and decorated the boxes.  Look what they have on the inside....

 
Cute or what?  Mel has an Etsy shop, see here.

The wreath was inspired by my friend, Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage.  This girl has been on a felt flower making frenzy!    She provides excellent tutorials on how to make a whole garden full of felt flowers, so she's your go-to girl should the need arise. 



Here's a better shot of the wreath...




And that, my friends, is my dining room hutch decked out for the day of love.  As always, thanks for the visit.  See you soon.

The wreath is so cute! The boxes that your friend made are also! I love Valentines Day decorations in the home...I still need to make butter cutout cookies with red and pink sprinkles!

Gina! Your dining room hutch looks adorable! I went to check out Melonie's etsy shop. Her original acrylics are very well priced. I added her to my faves.

As always, you brighten my morning!
Have a great day!

I so want to do a felt flower wreath but haven't had time. I love yours. I have lots of boy/girl things around the house too. Years ago as I was buying them I never dreamed how much they would mean to me now that my kids are grown. You keep those bears safe and don't ever part with them. Hope your week has been good...it's almost over! ~Ann
