I decorated for Valentine's Day far too early this year and I am about sick of it. But, I am glad that I got it all out. I am looking forward to receiving my Heart to Heart swap from Sarah. It is my favorite swap all year long! The little girls I made for the swap are in my header. I forgot to make myself one, so I need to whip a little Valentine cutie up to keep too.
Everything crammed in the corner where I do all my holiday decorating.
This is the first time to use my white feather tree (I swapped Sarah for this too). In the past, I used my skinny tall Christmas tree, but I wanted a lighter look this year. I missed the lights of the big one, but I like this one too.
I decorate with hearts, of course, but also candy, cupcakes, cake, pies and sweets of all sorts. I have "X's" and "O's" and other hidden surprises on the tree this year.
I have a lot of old kiddie Valentine's, but I never knew a good way to display them. Finally, I took a cork board and just stapled them all over it in layers. I tried to put the politically incorrect ones on top like "Honest Injun" with a Native American. So, not cool anymore.
My infamous shelf that I use for every holiday. I can pack that sucker full. Things I look for when thrifting: Vintage heart shaped candy boxes (I had several and sent them in swaps, now I wish I had them back), old chocolate covered cherry boxes, vintage cards, anything with "14 on it", candy boxes and hankies. You can see a lot of my prior Heart to Heart swap items mixed in here and there. I made that little cone for last years swap.Kind ofold candy tins, a Dollar Tree wooden LOVE plaque and a funny fat spun head girl I made last year.

This funny monkey gal was 25¢ at the Super Cheap Thrift. Had to have her! Had to!
Happy Valentine's Day...almost!
