I have been a blogging slacker for the last year.
I started college and time has gotten away from this woman!
We just bought a house and have been settling in and I finally have time to decorate. I also have a daughter that is almost 14 and is as crafty,and more artsy than her mom to help me.
Yesterday she and I went for a walk to the
local Joann's (lucky for us it is only a block away) and
went to town decorating our new mantle.
Just add some cherry jelly hearts
This heart is the piece that started it all for me. I found this glittery wire heart and had to add it.
The polka dot Love was also found in the stash!
My favorite addition is this cute spiky pitcher with red hydrangeas in it.
Daughter found this mailbox. It added to the memories of getting valentines from the other kiddos at school.
This bunting is awesome. We cut paper hearts
out of decorative paper
used glue dots so that we can reuse the burlap backing.
The red and white
finish it off.
A friend gave us this cute owl lamp when we moved in
and daughter and I thought it was a cute accent,
and pulled the whole fireplace into the whole thing.
The red beads scattered around the mantle are
$1 heart necklaces.
Two necklaces for a buck.
Can't go wrong with a dollar!!
Hope you all love it as much as we do!
