First, a little shout-out to Jo and her family. They are traveling in the U.S. right now … from Australia. Noticed your comment, Jo, and while I don’t have store recommendations for the areas that you’re going through, I just wanted to send a big, happy WELCOME since you’re here visiting. Wishing you & your family a fantastic experience.
Okay. So HELLO, February! I have a little extra “love” in my home decor these days. Not a ton of red & pink (although I think that’s WAY fun), but just some small details that put a little more love in the air. For example, our entry table always has some sort of seasonal touch and this year, instead of going for red-ness, I kept it neutral and put a favorite Valentines-y picture in the frame.
That’s Porter holding his homemade heart. I used that picture to make his Valentines last year (see my 2/13/08 post). The frame, if you can believe it, is from WalMart.
Those of you who have been following my blog for a while know that we always have something seasonal hanging above our bar in the kitchen (with the use of invisible thread & eyelet screws). I found these hearts at Michael’s last year (clearance sale after Valentines) and honestly, they’re a bit “crafty” for my taste. But they’re fun. And they’re Valentines. And they were cheap.
This might be a familiar project to some of you, from last February.
This trio of photos (in frameless clip frames, like I just blogged about on 1/22/09) hangs in our kitchen. What’s different from how I had it last year (see my 1/15/08 post) … is that Crew is now a part of the display. The message, of course: Love One Another.
I’ve been getting comments about wanting to see more home decor projects. Honestly, that’s not necessarily my strength, but since I enjoy seeing other peoples’ homes and how they decorate … I’m going to make that my blog focus this week. So check back daily for more ideas from our home.
