Valentine's Decor (just a little)

Hello!  I figured it was time to get in the Valentine's mood just a bit since this week will bring us into February.  In deciding to do some decorating in anticipation of V-day, I also set a goal of just shopping the house for the decor.  Cost= ZERO!  :D

First up, I had this old country style heart hanging in a lonely place in the garage.  I looked around the garage for some red paint, but did not have any.  However, I did have silver.  :)  So it went from this:

to this (just added some red and silver ribbon that was leftover from Christmas and hung it above my front door): 

I then looked at the mantle...(which I am in the process of attempting to redesign.  I don't love the look of our fireplace, but I am very grateful to have one.).  I added some faux flowers and the same red and silver ribbon to my wreath, and then added some red accents that were laying in other spots around the house...

Not my favorite look, but hey!  It's the Valentine look.  :D  Once I am able to re-do the fireplace, it will be primarily black and white and will go with everything from Fall to Easter to Christmas.  For now, I'm ignoring the orange-y brick.  :D 

For some reason, I thought my planter bust should go on the mantle as well....she is still trying to grow hair, though.  Be kind.  :)

Here is another look...

Just a few things by the front door for fun....a little glam to the big topiary...

a small wreath hung on an architectural piece...

and my "new" silver heart.

Hope it is a LOVE-filled month for everyone.  Remember, it starts with YOU and with gratitude.
