LOVE. . .A Many Splendored Thing Valentines Mantle

With Valentines Day just a week away we are seeing a lot of love here in our home. 

 
 
And wouldn't you agree that Frank Sinatra said it best when he sang, "Love is a Many Splendored Thing"?
 
 
The arms of this sweet angel I made years ago are overflowing with love.
 
 
 
Love is a many splendored thing
It's the April rose that only grows in the early spring
 
 
 
These gorgeous faux flowers certainly do remind me of Spring!
 
  


 Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king
 


Being in love makes every man and woman feel like a King and Queen!
 
 
 
 
Once on a high and windy hill
In the morning mist two lovers kissed and the world stood still
 
 
 
notice the little girl kissing the boy in one of my vintage Valentines?


 When our fingers touch, my silent heart has taught us how to sing
Yes, true love's a many splendored thing
 
 


I made the heart garland by sewing two paper hearts down the center and then bending one forward.
 
 

 
 
 
Lots of things that I love. . .Put them all together and what do you get?

A little bit of LOVE from me to you!

hugs,
Jann

LOVE the love vibe going on around your home, Jann. The wheel with the vintage valentines is adorable. Very clever!

Cute! Valentines day makes me sad now as I miss my hubby. He would always buy me a card, flowers and a box of chocolate covered cherries (my fave). Then he would do something special, like take me on a picnic,to an event, to a movie,...something sweet. Miss that.

All the LOVE in your home looking so pretty. Love the wheel with the vintage valentine's card. Also love the quilt! I'm not feeling to much love at the moment since I have a really bad cold,,,and just gave it to MR. C, so he doesn't have to much love for me either :-{

The mantle looks great. Of course there is no one like Frank. The artist now days sound like they are screaming a song.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful post.
Happy Valentines Day.
