Valentine Mantle

For my Valentine's Day mantle, I pulled together some items like these book stacks I made embellished with red ribbon and hearts from the dollar store.  
 This porcelain cherub was 1.00 at my thrift store.  I also have several vintage Valentine postcards that I added to the vignettes.
 And how perfect is this book I found in my 'stash'??
 On the other end, more book stacks and the frame that I change out for different holidays.
 I just print out different poems/verses and replace them in the frame.  That way, I store the piece of paper, not the whole frame!
 This little vintage Lefton angel was an Ebay find . . . I just adore her!

 Can you tell that Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for?? Such a bright spot in the dreary days of January and February in the Midwest! Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?


  1. Your little cherub and angel are so sweet and your vignette shows your love for Valentine's Day. I rarely decorate for it, except for some flowers, however this time I decided to do the hutch. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

  2. I love your Valentines find! I really like that picture frame too, I've been searching for one similar for our family photo wall I'm putting together.

  3. Your Valentine mantel is adorable. Nice job framing the poems/verses.
