Welcome Inside My 100 Year Old Home

I am not sure how it can be February first today. Whatever happened to January? It feels like I just took down my Christmas decorations. Oh wait, maybe I did.

I have a theme every month on my blog and February’s theme is Let’s Get Creative. Even though I thought I was creative in January, this is my chance to push myself to get even higher standards. Yikes! I have some work to do.

Valentine’s Day Decorations – Make a Heart Garland

I just might be obsessed with making Valentine’s Day decorations. Today I am sharing a simple heart garland. It’s easy to make, simple but elegant.

Even though I have made a lot of Valentine Day decorations and crafts this year, I still like the simple decor. So far these past two seasons I have made a pom pom basket, cherry blossom branches, pink painted fabric pillow, valentine heart pillow,   clay hearts, hand stitched hearts, a succulent heart wreath, silver metallic clay hearts, and a Valentine wooden flower crate (covered in paper napkins). I like subtle decor that offers a slight hint of the holiday. I like a light touch of holiday decor and today’s craft is exactly that.

Today I am sharing a simple Valentine Heart garland that I made out of scrapbook paper. I love how it looks on my vintage white windows. And it was incredibly easy (as in no cutting!) because I used a hole punch.

Valentine’s Day dinner has always been different in our home. Our oldest son Andrew was born on Valentine’s Day so for his first eighteen years, we celebrated his birthday (which of course took precedence!).
