Valentine's Day Decorations

My house is all decorated for Valentine's Day, not because I particularly love Valentine's Day, but because decorating just seems to be what I do.  Every year when I pull out my Valentine's decorations, I think I really need to buy some more decorations.  I used to have more, but I dropped a  plastic tub when moving some decorations around and some things broke, and I haven't really replaced them.

My Valentine's tree...

I was going to go to Hobby Lobby and get some ribbon for a bow on top, but then I got trapped in my house for days, so you'll just have to pretend like there is a bow topper
The mantle

There are some seasonal towels in the kitchen...

and guest bath
The front isn't elaborate, just a few wooden hearts on the door and a flag
I do have a couple of new additions to the mantle.  I got this votive cup on sale after Christmas.  I decided to use it for V-day too.
This isn't new, but it's been living in Nocona for quite a few years (mostly in storage).  Mom wanted to throw it out when she was cleaning out closets, but I rescued it and decided to use it for V-day decorations...
This is the bottom...
My Mom painted it for me when I was 2.  I told her there was no way I could throw it out since she wrote on the bottom of it!

I love her!! Your right you can't throw it out with the message on the bottom. Love the garland and the tree.

I always love your decorations. I love the tree. Makes me want to do a Valentine tree. Hmmm. Agree- can't throw out the cute ceramic girl your mom made you. It is a treasure!
