Fun Flat Spring Wreath

I may be rushing it a bit,  but the truth is.....I would be happy to have bunnies out all year long!    I packed up the Christmas decor weeks ago and  didn't decorate for winter or Valentines in the entry so I had a fresh slate this morning to begin spring decorating.

Birch Candles and Spring Tulips

I bought some birch candles in the 90% off Christmas isle at World Market about 5 weeks ago.    They have been laying on my work table in the utility room ever since I brought them home.   This morning I decided I should either put them away or use them in a new!

Week End Treasure Hunt

The warm weather we enjoyed on Saturday was perfect for a road trip to Amarillo Texas to check out a few yard sales and visit some of my favorite antique shops.
Before I give you the details on the treasures that I found,   I want to share the last of my Valentine decor in the kitchen.   When I saw this photo,  I realized that I hadn't shared the coffee corner in the kitchen.

New Decor in the Master Bedroom

I was in no hurry to decorate the master bedroom after all the Christmas decor had been packed away.   It has patiently sat with an unadorned mantle and an uncluttered look.  
This morning I got up and declared "today is the day"!

Valentine Decor in the Hallway

I wanted to share the last section of the hallway all decked out for Valentines Day.    I am up and down this hallway all day long,   so I really enjoy having holiday decorations to look at while I'm on my way to the laundry room....bathroom....etc.

Valentine Centerpiece

Is anyone old enough to  remember a time when you could get milk in glass bottles delivered to your home by the milkman.....well,  I!   When the kids were little,   I would get a gallon of milk delivered to our porch about every other day.

Valentine Tree

I constructed a tree from vintage wooden coat hangers for Christmas.    It was quite a bit of work and I really wanted to get a little more use out of it,  so I decided not to take it down after Christmas but to use it as my Valentine tree

Valentine Wreath

I made this ruffled heart shaped wreath many many years ago.    It's one of my favorites and I try to use it somewhere in the house as part of my Valentine decor each year.    Last year I had it hanging on the front of the lit cabinet in the family dining room.....this year I have it on the sofa table in the hallway.

Valentine Decor

The last couple of weeks I have spent most of my time organizing things around the house,,,, things always seems to get in a mess during the Christmas holidays!   No time to put things away where they go!
