When I put my Christmas decorations away, I always think it is a good time to change up some of the vignettes I have out for every day. Usually, I find something I like and that’s what I stick with. With Valentine’s Day coming up (and without much Valentine’s Day décor to speak of) I tried to put together some vignettes with stuff I already had around the house. This also tied in with one of my five goals for 2015 ~ using what I’ve got!
I used some small red fairy tale books I had gotten at a yard sale last year. I put two under a cloche on my coffee table, with a LOVE bingo card, a couple of game pieces and a Scrabble tray with “love” spelled out. One of the game pieces had a “30” on it, which I put next to the Scrabble letters since we will be married 30 years in May.
On the mantel, I brought my girl and boy busts back out and put them on my candlesticks to raise them up. I also added in two more of those red fairy tale books in here, as well as two other red books I had elsewhere in the house.
Our buffet in the dining area got a few things.
And, I brought out my Valentine’s Day hearts pillow for the living room sofa.
This will tide me over until the middle of February, when I’ll change the mantle and coffee table vignettes to something that will bring me into Spring. How have you been decorating recently?
