Valentine Mantle



Here is my Valentine mantle.  I put it up last week. I went simple for this mantle. I'm trying to go thru my decorating items and keep only the ones that I really LOVE! (no pun intended!)

Not much going on right now...just wanted to pop in and say HI!

warmly,
deb

Your mirror is such a pretty showpiece to set off your mantel designs. I love it. I have collected so many valentine cuties - especially with our fun swaps. I just love them all. I don't think I could say good bye to any just yet! Hee-hee! But, I do have this feeling - I need to declutter my house! Oh boy!

Linda said...

Love it! I am trying to get rid of things I don't love also. good luck to us!

Sweet! I think I need to buy myself 5 or 6 boxes of chocolates just to decorate one of my mantels (and maybe eat a few chocolates, too). Your mirror is just gorgeous!

Pops of Red...oh, happy day!! I always look forward to your mantel decor...it makes me happy. And in the cold of winter, red makes me happy. Decorating for Valentines fills the void left by all my tubs of Christmas.

You have great Valentine candy boxes and they look so pretty on your mantel! I just got all of the Christmas put away and now I have the snowmen out. (and women) Valentine probably won't come out until after our birthdays, later this month.
I love seeing yours though.

It looks great Deb. I am also really cutting back on my seasonal/holiday decor. I will be going into the Valentine bin very soon! January has turned cold so keeping busy and warm.

Your mantel looks "love"-ly, Deb! : ) Mine is empty at the present because I'm just putting my Christmas décor away this weekend. Not sure what I'm going to be putting out, but I will see what I've got in my very small Valentine's bin.

Stephanie said...

Wishing you a blessed Sunday. Hugs!

Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment Deb. Hearing from old friends makes me happy. I must say I am amazed that you are already in the valentine decorating mode. You put me to shame, I still have my Christmas decorations up. So nice to hear from you! Happy new year. Julie

Very pretty. I have never decorated for Valentine's but I did buy a couple things this year but they are going in the new trailer.

You really have some beautiful candy boxes. Such a pretty mantle. Every holiday, I say I'm going to do less, but you know me!! Josie and I decorated her Chinese New Year tree yesterday and I'll be poking through my Valentine bin next weekend. Snowy Hugs!
