Valentine’s “Mantel”

IMG_0730 IMG_0731 IMG_0732 IMG_0733

As we don’t have a fireplace, we don’t really have a mantel.  So I created one using our server in the dining room.  Lately I’ve taken a fancy to decorating for the holidays.  I don’t do every one (no Mardi Gras, for example) but I will do most of the biggies.

1. Subway art is my favorite thing.  It’s easy and I keep subway art for each holiday right in the frame and just switch them out.

2. Holiday candy is fun and easy.  I just display in clear jars.

3. Instead of buying things, I just walk around and pull out things that fit the color scheme.

4. Banners; there are lots of free printable banners I make out of paper and ribbon.

Happy holidays!  All of them 🙂

The Alphabet of Our Love Book

I made a book for my husband for Valentine’s Day.  Luckily he doesn’t read this blog.  🙂

I started out with this idea I found on Pinterest.

 

I decided to make it in a photo book format even though I wasn’t going to use many photos.  I made one on Shutterfly.  If you’d like to see it, please do!

Now that Christmas is over, it’s all about Valentine’s Day in the grocery store and on Pinterest.  I think I will bake these for my husband and give them to him in a red cardboard box.  They are called Boyfriend Brownies and they are:

1 scoop brownie batter + 1 scoop chocolate chip cookie dough.

My husband is my husband not my boyfriend.  But he’s my boyfriend too.  This reminds me of a joke my husband tells:

“Do you have a girlfriend?”

“No, my wife won’t let me.”

Oh Holy Night

 

Merry Christmas Eve!  I hope you enjoy Celine Dion’s O Holy Night.
