Now that February is officially here I decided it was time to spread a little love outdoors.
Just pulling from what I already had I started spreading some love. . .
Up went my coffee filter and paper doily wreath I made two years ago. I haven’t tired of it, and I like how it really pops on my wooden door.
An assortment of roses. Some dried, some made from pink tissue, and one rolled from burlap.
Oops, here I am bragging about using things I already had and then I came to this. Forgot that I had recently purchased this at Joanne’s for 50% off. I loved the rustic moldings and the blue ones look so cute with my chippy cupboard.
Primitive hearts by the door help strike up a conversation. Ha, ha, get it? Conversation hearts. Oh am I ever so clever. lol!
No matter how hard I tried, I could not find a time of day without shadows.
A sweet tweet has taken up home on the seat of my chippy pink chair.
Oh and yes, does anyone know how to get rust off of your porch? Can you see one of my rusty treasures as left a stain below the chair.
The gate got a simple garland of punched hearts in book pages. Although they are draped over bakers twine, I pinned them with glittery clothespins for security. Never know when a winter wind might come up. the clothespins are so fun to make! Just brush the top with Modge Podge and pour glitter over them. Shake off and voila! I actually bought these at a boutique, but made some of my own afterwards. These are mini clothespins from Hobby Lobby.
You can see that I am having lots of fun with my new chalkboard easel. The design was inspired by Pinterest.
I tucked the branches that I had tied with plaid fabric for Christmas into an old funnel and added a few book page hearts. I kept out my red glass lantern and placed some little hearts on my rusty springs.
In my mind the tree says: Hang onto my love!
The lantern says: You light up my life!
And the hearts on the springs say: Your love puts the spring in my step.
Yup, that’s how this mind works. Think hubby realizes that?
I haven’t done a thing to this twig heart wreath yet. Inspiration just hasn’t come.
The old heater tells my sweetie that he is HOT, HOT, HOT!
Now if that don’t get me flowers for Valentines I don’t know what will!
How about you? Have you spread any love lately?
p.s. I want to thank Revi from Revisionary Life for featuring my Plaid Picnic at her new party! And Debra at Common Ground for featuring it also at her Be Inspired party! Great gals and great parties!
