First of all, let me say that Mrs. Olson was featured at Angie of Knick of Time. Wohoo! Please hop over and check it out. To read the entire post go here:"Old Mother Hubbard" Thanks so much, Angie. I really appreciate it!
Do you remember when you were a young child in grade school and you had a special ‘someone’ that you wanted to give a Valentine to?
I was always so bashful when it came to boys that I liked. Hard to believe, huh?
That’s what this reminded me of.
The minute I saw it at T.J. Maxx I loved it! Of course, the fact that it had a bit of turquoise didn’t hurt any.
I knew it would be perfect for my Valentine Mantle.
The little guy seems to be pleading, “Please take my Valentine, you hold the key to my heart”!
My cement pedestal and vintage plate added just the right touch. You might say, “they take the cake”. lol!
I got my mercury glass canister for only $10 at NPS (Train Wreck),
This plate isn’t old, but I loved how it went with my other one
Often I pick up discounted after Christmas décor that will work for Valentines. That was the case with this little, ‘love dove’ and the glitzy key.
Last year I took cards that I had made and assembled them into a garland.
I’ll leave you with a couple pics of the hearth.
And one final glance at my ‘Mantle of Love”.
After I did this post I went outside to shovel snow. Yes, we finally got an actual snow storm. As I was shoveling look what I noticed.
Tell me you see it! The ‘Snow Heart’ up in the left hand corner.
I think this was Gods token of ‘LOVE’. A gift of the well needed snow for our trees, plants, lawns, and yes us!
Thank You, Lord!
