Valentine's Day Mantel....

I know what you are thinking,
"ummm.... it's January, why are you decorating for Valentine's Day???"

Well.... the thing is, I have a hard time with the month of January. It's gray, it's cold, it's mostly just a time I wish I could hibernate and live in my pj's.

I. don't. like. it.

So, to help me battle my "winter blahs" I decorated with lovey dovey things that make me smile.

ahhhhh... that's better :)

Fresh flowers...{ which I plan to buy myself again and again this winter }... mason jars.... chalk art... 
Oh, I think I am in love...

I love this little open frame... I made it last year using the same technique for scrapbook paper transfers as I did the "love lives here" sign....

So, tell me... do you get the winter blues too?? what do you do to help?

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look around! 


  1. Beautiful, Carmella! I love the vintage feel of it!

  2. oh, love how you did the chalkboard art on that window...Great job~!

  3. It's something out of a magazine! Great job, it's beautiful!

  4. aw, looks so nice. I am the same way with winter and my hubby questioned why I was making a little button heart to display in our home when it is "only January."

  5. If I didn't have my birthday to look forward to in January, I'd feel exactly the same way!! Love the mantel, especially the chalkboard (:

  6. It's beautiful Carmella! I struggle with winter blahs too. Last year I spent a lot of time on the couch unable to do anything. It was not fun. so far this year it's not that bad but I feel it nipping at my heels. Got to try to get more sleep! I'll pray you can not get too blah!

  7. I love how your mantel isn't overly pink :-) And there's nothing like fresh flowers to brighten a winter's day! Thanks for linking up to my party!


I love comments! I read each and every one of them...thank you for taking the time!
