Valentine Mantle


 The "freezing" weather has left, for now! It's time to put up some "love" on the mantle.

I had this little step ladder in the garage and decided to use it for some Valentine display. Doesn't the truck look so cute on it!


Here is a compete view. It's not a "busy" as past years. Going for the less look as long as I can.

Thank you all so much for all the comments on the booth move! I was out there on Thursday with some Valentine cards. Monday I'm heading out to Auntie M's to work that booth. I've haven't been "working" the booths like I need to!

Count down to the wedding: Haven't decided on the cake, flowers or invitation...thinking the end of February to do cake tasting...yum...I'm not in charge of the invitations and I think she has a card for a florist.

I DO have my Dress for the wedding! I bought it at a consignment shop. Can't remember if I told you. LOL!
It's long with a slit on the side. It is sleeveless with a jacket. The top of the dress has a "glitter" pattern on it along with the jacket. It's black with the "glitter" on top. NOW, I have to get rid of the arm jiggles...or wear the jacket the entire time!

Hope you are all doing well. Hubby has the bad cold, grand girl has strep throat...and I'm taking "air borne" and washing my hands so much they are dried out...

May your weekend be filled some FUN!
Warmly,
deb

Your mantle looks great. I sure hope that you avoid the crud. So hard when it's your husband. Good luck with the wedding plans. You have your dress and that's a biggie.
Stay warm.

Your mantel looks great! I am going for the less cluttered look this year. I am trying to simplify! It is hard for a junker though! Stay well, so much to do in the coming months!

Stay healthy! I can't wait to see your dress. Perhaps you need to model it for us ahead of time (smile). Love your mantle and the added step ladder is the perfect touch. I'm definitely ready to pull out more Chinese New Year and Valentine's decorations.

Deb, Everything looks so Festive you sure stay busy! So now you have 2 booths? I was thinking it was just one, that you had moved. Hope you make loads of sales. Cannot wait to see your dress. Hugs, Diane

Your mantle looks great and I'm loving that sweet ladder all decked out. Oh, your dress sounds so pretty. Consignment shopping for things like that, worn once a few hours, is a smart savvy idea.

Good luck staying healthy, the flu is rampant here in VA too.

Annette said...

Love the little red step ladder, and yes, the truck looks very cute. Very nice display. Your dress sounds lovely. I do hope you don't get sick. Too much crud going around!!

Turquoise truck and red step ladder, what's not to like about those colors!? Didn't know the news about Archivers! Seems hard to believe they can't make it...

Patti said...

Your mantle looks great Deb! We have similar tastes, that's for sure. LOVE the red ladder and toy truck. My dad has his "Old Blue", a 63 Chevy, all fixed up. I'm having fun putting things together for you!

Debbie Kay said...

Your mantle looks beautiful and that ladder is just too cute, what a great idea!

Glad you are warming up there my friend.

Your mantle looks so pretty! Sometimes less is more! I adore the ladder with all the sweet things you have decorating it. I would have never thought of that.

Love your Valentines decorations! I have been slowly putting the Christmas up and replacing it with Valentines. Thankfully we have all been well and I hope your crew recovers soon. Your dress sounds lovely, can't wait to see a picture of it. I love the ladder, so cute in red. And the truck!! I have been looking for one for a while now. I do love the hunt :) Have a wonderful day, Holly

Oh that cold is going around so much, glad it hasn't reached us yet. I love your mantle, especially love the little step stool. I don't have Valentine stuff, but am thinking of taking the Village down. Getting sick of snow!
