Tokens of Love. . .

 Hello my friends,
February has arrived and Valentines Day will be here
before we know it!

It's one of my favorite holidays.  Whether we have a significant other or not, there are so many people that we love and that love us!!  I think it's important that we remember that!

The last few months I have received so much love from my family, friends, neighbors, and blog friends.  I have felt the love, thoughts, and prayers from so many of you.
So, I wanted to share some tokens of love to say 'thank you'!
It's perfect timing that Amber from Follow The Yellow Brick Home put together a wonderful Vintage Valentines Day Blog Hop.
Thanks for inviting me!
There are lots of talented ladies sharing inspiration in this hop.  You will find a link at the bottom of this post that will take you to each one of them.
If you are hopping over from Botanic Bleu I know that you have witnessed her talent.
I hope you feel the love from the minute you enter our home.  An ornament heart wreath I made a few years ago hangs on a door from Décor Steals in our entry.
Below it is a wooden Valentines box I painted years ago sitting on a vintage aqua metal stool.  I love mixing old with the new!

This is a wide view.  I have to tell you that I hold a stitching group with friends at my home almost weekly.  Really, anymore we just visit and eat.  :) But a couple of weeks ago they insisted on pulling out my Valentines Décor.  Try as I might, I couldn't get them to give up.  So they did all of my decorating except the kitchen.  Really, I have the best friends!

This chippy cabinet is in the entry as well.  They filled my glass jars with candy and tucked in tokens of love.  I made the pom pom garland last year.

The Valentines village is my favorite.  They set it up and I added the bottle brush trees.

Treats and sweets!

I love my sweet February girl!

Who doesn't love a Valentines cupcake?
Now, a few pics of the living room.

My sister Julie, friend Dolly, and I made the jewelry hearts last year while helping with Dolly's Aunt Bunnies estate.

Little love tokens inside my pink cabinet.  A couple years I made a lot of spoolies.  They are fun to create!

 The chicken wire crown is another reminder of how special we all are! 

The mantle is decorated in red and white.

The rag garland was made by my friend, Paula from

As we enter the family room you will see my two latest vintage thrift find treasures sitting atop a Valentines quilt topper.

My hand appliqued heart quilt is draped over the railing.

I got this cute old truck from my sister, Dolores a few years ago.  It's happy to carry a load of love!  My sweet friend, Amanda made the runner for me.


The family room mantle is filled with lots of love. . .

This sweet gold party hat bird is welcoming Valentines as well.  She was a gift from a wonderful blog friend, Debby Goes Shabby

Mixing Valentines with everyday decor always gives it a different look.  I love my red topped seltzer bottle!

This post has turned out much longer than I thought.  :)  So, I decided I will share my Valentines kitchen in another post.
Here's a sneak peak.
Now, head on over to visit Carol at Art and Sand  You will love her sweet cottage decorated with love!
I'll leave you with a little love from the boudoir.

Well look at your talented self! You are so creative Jann. I love everything about this post. That darling heart wreath is precious.

It's been too long since I stopped in for a visit, Jann! I enjoyed seeing all the "love" gifts from various blogger friends, and I'm in LOVE with your jewelry heart. It's just stunning :)

Jeanie said...

I love it all, Jann. Obviously -- what's NOT to love here! It's all just charming. But my eye is particularly drawn to your ornament heart wreath. I did a round ornament wreath a few years ago at Christmas but the heart is really special. I know what I'm buying next season on sale -- pinkish balls! And all your vintage valentines -- gorgeous. So glad to see you here!
