This morning when I woke and wished my Hubby “Happy Valentine's Day” …I said to him …Please don’t get me any overpriced red roses today….Normally when I woman tells her Hubby NOT to do something …she really means for him to do it ! But this morning I truly meant for him NOT to do it ! Besides I still have my roses from last week and he can save his money towards my button machine !
Normally we don’t go crazy over Valentine's day…I am one of those wives that believes that your Hubby should tell you every day how much he loves you and how wonderful you are !! …but since I live in the real world …I take what I can get…overpriced flowers and chocolates that go straight to my hips !
Not being totally cynical…I did decide to decorate a bit for Valentine’s day….here are the goodies I whipped up in the last few days.
The little heart garland was super fast and easy to make…something the kids would love to do. You can find the directions are here
The little hanging hearts wall-hanging was inspired by Amy Valentine Heart Pillow …I just made a mini wall-hanging instead of a pillow
When I saw Bunny Hill Designs jar filled with hearts…it inspired me to make my own hearts ….
Filled tray on our coffee table
Another thing I made were Froebel Hearts….super fast and easy ! You can find the instructions here ( only in German but lots of pictures) Great for the kids to make !
I hung the linen hearts from our dining room table lamp…sorry that the pictures isn't very good…guess the camera had enough of lovey stuff !
Our home is all decorated with tons of hearts…this put me in a Lovey mood, so I figured I would have a little Giveaway !!
If you would like to win these charms, meter of heart ribbon, heart buttons and 5 preprinted linen hearts ….
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me if you find Valentine's Day romantic or commercialized ?? ( Your answer does not effect your chance of winning…I’m just curious)
I will post the winner on March 1st !
I Wish you all a very
Happy Valentine’s Day !!
Even Max will get special treats today…
P.S….Did anyone else decorate for today ???
