Valentine’s Day Mantel

Valentine's Day mantel Yesterday I did some quick decorating of our mantel in order to get ready for Valentine’s Day. I had left the burlap bows and the white lanterns from Christmas decorating on the mantel, but it wasn’t long before I was craving some color on the mantel.

The flowers came from someone else’s yard, and I have been meaning to plant our own camellia bush. Don’t you just love something that can give you this gorgeous color in the middle of winter?  (Hint, hint, Leo!)

    Jane,
    How lovely! It is just perfect and my favorite touch is the buckets with pine-cones and the red heart. I like how you put the graphic heart on your tv screen too. My first thought was that it was a graphic program running on your tv, like those fake fire scenes. Great post:)

    It looks very pretty, Jane. I really like that rose heart wreath.
    Have a good Sunday! We won’t be getting out anytime soon after the blizzard, but at least we have power.
    I do miss the Sunday paper being delivered though, no sale flyers for me to see! :)

    I love your cheery mantle decked out for Valentine’s Day and your firewood pails Jane! My neighbors have camellias that they let me snip & prune :) Love the pop of color for a gray winter landscape!

    Good morning Jane,
    Thanks for sharing pictures of your beautiful mantel. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love the reds and whites. The decorated buckets add to the finishing touch. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family!! Oh and I almost forgot….the flowers are absolutely gorgeous.

    I think I know what Leo can give you for Valentine’s Day — a camellia bush.

    I love camellias. I first had them at a rental house in Augusta, Ga., and they were such a beautiful harbinger of spring. Now, we have some planted near our porch, and I love having the color when it’s cold and dreary outside.

    Everything looks beautiful and I love your buckets! I have not done much decorating for Valentine’s Day here, but I do have a “bouquet” of beautiful tissue flowers made by Jillian on my mantel. 😉

    Such sweet and simple touches that add so much personality! Camellias are so pretty especially in such a dreary time of year.

    Happy Valentine’s Week to You!

    I’m just in time to see your mantel! The garland is perfect. I took a peek in your shop and noticed your set of dishes sold. Woohoo! It all looks wonderful. Happy Valentine’s Day…I hope it’s lovely. :)
