Hello, hello there! Today, I am sharing our Shabby vintage valentine mantel.
We are in a State of Emergency here in the South due to an ice storm. I am suppose to be leaving on Sunday for a Caribbean cruise with two of my bf’s from childhood. We are celebrating our 50th’s this year and wanted to go big, or go home! I have never been on a cruise, so I am a little anxious, nervous and excited.
I only bought a few new things this year. My diy rustic Love sign set the tone for the rest. Typically for Valentine’s day I always use what I have and it is mostly from the Dollar tree. I think I spent around $20.00 this year to add a few new things. I took a little gander over at Michael’s and found exactly what I was looking for.
I bought two Love rustic plaques to add to the shutters. They were 6.99 each and of course you can use a coupon.
I added mini mason jars filled with a dollar tree hearts and some paper filler.
The vintage post cards I have had. My Mom bought those for me a few years back and I adore them. I draped a twine across and used mini clothes pins to hang them.

Red lantern from IKEA. I use this lantern often in my decorating. It’s been all over the place.

Last year, I kept up our Mini tree and decorated it for Valentine’s day. It was super cute, but I knew it annoyed my husband that the tree was still up, he asked what was next an Easter tree LOL! I actually thought about it.
I do miss it, now that I see it again. Maybe next year:)
I kept it simple this year.
Thanks for stopping over.
