Valentine's Day has always been a favorite of mine! My birthday is two days after Valentine's Day and my Mother ALWAYS made me a HEART cake for my Birthday! I was ALWAYS told of how my mother went into labor with me from laughing so hard at a Valentine's Party at church! Speaking of my Momma, I sure do miss her she had to be the best DIY'er I ever knew, and I learned from the best..... she could take nothing and make something! She always had our homes looking so wonderful! She always wanted to know what I was working on! She cheered me on!
Then to top things off Mark and I were married on Valentine's Day 3 years ago! I am so thankful God put Mark into my life.... After stopping by a widowed friends house one evening recently it reminded me of how incredibly lonely I was..... Mark was my knight in Shining Armor and I am so thankful of how our lives entwined!
Here are a few shots of the downstairs looking ready for the next holiday!
I loved making my cone trees, THANK YOU Pinterest (but here is the actual blog with a tutorial for the cone trees).... and I loved making the Valentine's Calendar that I found over on another blog. Go check it out and download your own calendar over at Me and My DIY.... all you have to do is punch out some hearts! I have bookmarked her blog and will be following her!
The frame above came from Michaels unpainted, for around $9.00 I actually used it for Christmas also! The heart and words were cut out on my Cricut Machine.
The Bunting is from the Dollar Spot at Target, the Cone tree is a styrofoam cone covered with red yarn, the framed art was a download two years ago from a blog.
Whoever said that Candy Canes are just for Christmas???
Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
