February can be a gray, dreary, cold month in the Midwest. Valentine's Day gives me an excuse to add some happy, cheery bright colors, flowers and a heart or two to my decor and, in turn, it brightens my mood.
An easy and inexpensive way to change up decor is with pillows.
I whipped up some pillows, in less than an hour. Using some heat transfer vinyl I customized each with LOVE and a heart.
And, those pillows are getting love...
From the dog. Sigh.
Valentine's Day and flowers (ok, and probably chocolate) go hand in hand.
I've become a sucker for the $3.99 bouquet of roses at Aldi. Such an inexpensive way to add some color and a good reminder that spring will eventually return.
I'm slightly obsessed with all things letter related. I went through my collection of letters and was inspired to add an XO (hugs and kisses) for another subtle Valentine's touch.
Rustic coasters are scattered about.
Herman, the head that usually wears my eye glasses, is donning a heart shaped eye patch...he obviously doesn't mind making a spectacle of himself for the sake of Valentine's.
Not only do I decorate the house...but I also make sure that Grace gets 'decorated'. She has lots of heart sweaters and pretty hair accessories to wear.
Which reminds me, I need to make sure she has a chance to show off her LOVE dress before Valentine's day.
And, though I wish this weren't the case, our front yard is still decorated with some ice cold hearts.
Here's hoping we get some warmer weather soon and those cold hearts melt.
Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?
