Whose ready for Valentines Day? Do you have dinner reservations or date night planned? We won’t be doing a date night this year (it’s not like we do one each year anyway), because our daughter is getting confirmed! I can’t think of a more special way to celebrate Valentines than with our Lord and family. After all, He is the foundation for our marriage.
I’m finally getting around to fixing up the place with a little Valentines decor now that the fair is over! We finished up tonight after a long day of farm shop judging. I’ll catch you all up on that in another post. Today though I want to show you our Valentines mantle that incorporates Revyn’s colors and a fair project. It’s all about “follow your arrow wherever it points”, because Kacey Musgraves song is our favorite.
I took an old window frame and inserted her fair mixed media project and put it in one pane. It was a rocky start as she created this, but I really like how it turned out. Can you believe she won 1st place and Champion with it? We sure couldn’t! Great job Rev!!!! This is the same vintage window we found on the side of the road that also showed up in our Christmas mantle. The chalkboard looking prints are pictures I made with Rhonna Designs App, and then I blew them up to 11×17 size. The arrows are some that I found at Academy, and I just used a little washi tape to cover up the lettering and arrow tip. The rose is from Revyn and I added it into this picture. She made it and gave it to me one day when she volunteered at the flower shop. I also made both sets of garland with some stuff I picked up or got for free. The LOVE letters were a free gift with my purchase from Lisa Leonard Designs.
Here is the top shelf closer up. I LOVE the colors and how they all pop against one another. I’m typing and thinking “how can I incorporate these colors into a room?”
The bottom shelf contains a tin heart that Revyn got at Warrenton on one of our trips. Now it’s turned into a light and it’s awesome. I may not let her have it back, because I’m loving it!
I hope you are getting your Valentines Day all planned out. Remember though that you and your spouse need to have Valentines every day. Shouldn’t we celebrate our love for one another on a daily basis by small gestures and words? Just take a minute each day to tell each other what you love about them. Sending you hugs this Valentines day, and I hope you have a memorable day!
