Valentine Mantle & the $10.00 Bag


 This is in the center of the mantle. I love old frames and candy boxes. I have a "few" more, I wanted to put up the red ones this year.


 With Christmas behinds us, it's time to get the Valentine treasures out and up.



These are what FIX INTO my $10.00 bag , both photos, at the last sale we went to, the 3 day sale. I know, I really filled up the bag!!! LOL!!! You can see some of the prices, that I DIDN'T PAY!!  Love deals!!! 



Had my duty day today and there were people in the shop, mainly window shopping.

I made a few Valentine cards yesterday when it was SO COLD! Next week I will be making Valentine crafts for a swap.

I haven't had any candy/chocolate for 10 days and I haven't lost any weight...WHAT IS UP WITH THAT??? Rather frustrating!!! However, I'm not giving in...until Valentines day, Easter and then my birthday!!! LOL!!!

warmly,
deb

Love your pretty mantle! I have a few favorite Valentines boxes to display also. You've made me want to get them out and decorate Deb!

Did some crafting today myself, for my sweet swap partner...you! ♥ :)

I've been doing the sugar detox myself. Dang scales, they can disappoint, but keep watching & you'll lose!

Forgot to say, great bag of goodies you got!

It seems to get to a point where you can't lose weight no matter what. I've always heard you could cut 200 calories a day and lose a pound. It's frustrating. Love your pretty decorations! Stay warm!

I always enjoy your charming mantel...I remember the year you spelled out merry christmas in monogrammed hankies...so clever! But my eye is always drawn to pops of red...I can never get enough. =D

Stephanie said...

You always "dress up" your mantel in the most delightful ways! I was just thinking today that I needed to start making some Valentine's Day cards and crafts.

Hugs to you, Deb!

Your mantle is so pretty and the bag of goodies is pretty amazing! Have fun making Valentines.

Patti said...

It's a treat to see how you will decorate your mantle! Now I want to do up mine with Valentines!

Rebecca said...

What fun it is to fill up a bag with "treasures"! (And just the nudge I need to move me towards decorating for Valentine's Day.)

Margaret said...

Lovely mantle! What great luck you had at the sale. I love a deal too! Maggie

Theresa said...

Dorothy Crutchfield said...

Your mantle is so pretty with the red! I always love your decorations.
And you got a very good ten dollar bag of goodies, too.

Deb, your mantel is so pretty! I love how you decorate! I think I'll try to make some cards or tags this year. One of my 2015 goals is to do more art/crafts!!
hugs,
Linda

Your mantle is full of wonderful treasures!! It looks very festive all decked out in red! You did very well with the bag you got at the sale too. The weight will come off. Sometimes the body takes a while to adjust and then all of a sudden pounds are gone. Keep up the good work.

Laurel@ChippingwithCharm said...

Your mantel looks perfect :) Love all of your fun finds too!

Cheryl said...

What great treasures you got! I have a guy I buy a bag of stuff from for $10 too. He has about 50 boxes filled with junk and lets me fill an over flowing bag and sells it to me for ONLY $10. I use a canvas tote bag too! Well... this past weekend it hit me, duh, get a bigger bag. So I did... and he didn't say a word LOL
big hugs,
Cheryl

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Your mantel is so pretty and charming, Deb...I love how you used all red...really makes a statement! Beautiful!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Love your mantel. Your treasures just add so much charm for Valentines and wow what a bunch for 10 dollars. Hang in there for the weight loss. It may just drop off all at once and surprise you!!

Put up my decorations outside for Valentines Day. Only one in the neighborhood. But maybe a reminder to husbands as they drive by the house.

Debbie Kay said...

Deb your mantle is so pretty, you always arrange your sweet decorations so nicely. Love your grab-bag goodies too.

Love & blessings,

Debbie

That toy tea set is absolutely darling. Your mantle is so pretty. Love the box tucked in the frame. I've been having fun with Valentine crafting too. Stay warm. I'm guessing you are getting these bitter temps and snow too.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Love your valentines mantle, especially that mirror! Hang in there with the dieting... you'll probably loose several pounds at once then plateau again. Good luck!

Diane said...

Wow fun decorations, thanks for sharing the pictures.

Best of the New Year.

Diane

Oh, how I wish I had a mantle! I did a little thrifting, but didn't find anything I wanted for Valentine's Day. Maybe my house will be heartless! I have to give up caffeine. I think I would rather give up chocolate (althought that too has caffeine in it!)

Hugs,
Deb
