Welcome to Around the House at My 100 Year Old Home. This is a weekly update I share every Saturday about what is going on at My 100 Year Old Home.
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.
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 is right around the corner. The most special way for us to celebrate is to enjoy a special Valentine’s Day dinner at home.
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!). When he went off to college we weren’t used to going out to dinner nor did we like the hassle and crowds. So we usually have dinner at home. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am so happy to share more Valentines Day decor today. I am part of a wonderful blog hop called A Very Vintage Valentine. So I decided to bring out my vintage teacups, plates, and cranberry glass and set a table for a tea party.
