Valentine Goodies

After I pack up Christmas each year I think I will never be in the mood for the few Valentine decorations that I have, but I always get excited a few weeks later to put it out. I keep it all in the kitchen because there is not much and it makes more of an impact that way.

I just love Larkspur Lane figurines.

This jar might already be half way gone. Heart shaped Gobstoppers are my favorite Valentine candy!

I hot glued this heart ornament in the cloche. It peels off easily when I'm finished with it.

Cute bird salt and pepper shakers that my mom got me last year and a Valentine quote picture thingy that I made last year while we were iced in for a few days.


This took a lot of thought. Hahaha! I just stuck some heart picks from Hob Lob in the jars. :)

I love changing out these metal signs over my laundry room. I've been seeing some really cute Valentine decorations out in blogland! I think I love decorating for the smaller holidays just as much as I do for fall and Christmas. :)

I love your seasonal decor. I think my favorite is that pretty heart under the dome - seems a little symbolic of some hearts, doesn't it?
Hope you're feeling well & hope you have a good week.

Cute! I'm not usually big on decorating for Valentine's day, but I think I might pick up a few little things, just to spread the "love" in my house!

That little girl on the scale is so cute. Hey I like those heart picks...I didn't think of that...thanks for sharing.

My little man Ben woke up in the middle of the night with a fever so he stayed home from school today. It's actually nice have some one on one. I think he and I are doing to get ready to decorate with our Valentines decorations...showing yours gave me that little push I needed to get going.

Happy February 1st!

I am going to have to go get some of those heart shaped gobstoppers.

Cute. I like V-Day decor. I only have a few things, which is perfect for me. I have the same type candy dish. The top is a little different. I found it at Cracker Barrell and one for Easter as well. I love the size of them.

Okay, now you've gone and done it with your adorable Valentine's Day goodies! I HAVE to go home after work and find my Valentine's Day decorations . . . if I don't come out of the "storage room" upstairs after an hour or so, someone send out a search party!

Grins!

Do you remember where you got your lampshade in that wire basket in the kitchen? I love it!

Laura said...

I love it Shannon. I especially like the sticks and heart decoration. I could spend all day in hob lob...in fact I did this past weekend! Hope you are feeling well!

Lana said...

I love your Valentine decor! I don't think I have any!

Mandi @ Finding Home said...

I just love how you hung the ortament in the cloche. I never would have thought to do that. Very cute!

3LittleByrds said...

Love all your decorations as usual.

The Photo Goo said...

Where do you find the Larkspur Lane figures? I don't have any decorations for valentines but you've inspired me to start :)

Jennifer said...

Love your Valentine decorations! I was inspired by your decorations last year to use my Southern Living plate with ribbon and a "love" verse, too. Where is a good place to look for a cloche?
Looking forward to seeing your baby!

Katy said...

Really festive girlfriend! If my house was all cleaned up and laundry done and put away, then I might get the urge to decorate with hearts.....until then, my one and only heart decor will stand proud. :)

A Hint of Home said...

All your valentines are cute as can be. I love your idea of gluing the ribbon in the top of the cloche for the heart. It's very cute.

Angie said...

You have some adorable decorations! It is so fun decorating for other holidays besides Christmas because I have less stuff and am not stressed.

Southern Fried Gal said...

Everything is so cute. I'm totally copying that hanging heart idea. Which reminds me I need to head to HL and hope they have something similar!

The Floppy Cow said...

Cute and inspiring as always! I can hardly wait to decorate for Easter.

The Lynchs said...

I love the heart in the dome! So simple, but so dramatic! I am shamelessly stealing this ;)

jodi @ back40life said...

such a fabulous idea with your cloche! I just remembered that I bought a heart pick at Hob Lob last year after Valentine's Day - I should get it out or it will soon be too late!
