Happy Valentine's Day!

How it got to be the middle of February so quickly, I'm not sure. . . but here we are! Happy Valentine's Day!


I did a small Valentine's display on my mother's antique dough cabinet: my chalkboard plate, hurricanes filled with candy conversation hearts, a papier mache heart-shaped box, a favorite red vase, and a fun printable from Sprik Space. Some red ribbon adds to the fun and hides the plate on which one of the hurricanes is elevated.


From the latch I hung a little Pottery Barn wall packet (I should paint this a fun color, shouldn't I?) that I filled with vintage valentine cards from The Graphics Fairy.



And there you have it--a Valentine's display that cost me just a couple of dollars for candy conversation hearts.

I'm joining dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday!

  8. I love your chalkboard plate so much, Richella, that I want to "borrow" the idea. May I ask where you got the chalkboard paint? I'm thinking of doing a tray for the "menu" of the upcoming meal - that way, four little mouths won't be asking me constantly, "What's for dinner? What's for breakfast?"

    Thanks,

    Erin
