Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
Yesterday I had plans to clean my house.
That did not happen.
I started by dusting off a table I was going to put a few things on and the next thing I knew I was in the dining room decorating my hutch. How does that happen?
Does that ever happen to you? Please tell me it does.
Here is my hutch all decked out for Valentine's Day.............
Here is what it looked like before I started.
I have a few places in my house that I change for the seasons. My fireplace mantel, my front porch and my hutch. I would love to go all out and decorate every room, but seriously, who has time for that? I say that because it takes me forever to do each area. I put things on them, stand back, change it, put more or different things on it, stand back, change it again.........you get the picture.
Remember this picture? This is the one I re-did last week. This was my starting point.
On Saturday, my daughter and I had craft time. I took these wooden hearts and changed them to coordinate with the picture.
This is my daughter, Tiffany.
She is going to start blogging with me and I think this should be her profile picture.
She is going to be bringing great recipes to share with you.
Well, if I can get her to put the Mod Podge down!
Sorry, Tiff. I had to.
And, I'm thinking this should be mine.
I know you're wondering............no we were not drinking.
Okay, back to business.
Because I needed something for the bottom shelf, to pull it all together, I made this.
I took a frame I have had for years, cut out a new mat, with a coordinating background and hot glued these hearts in the openings. I love how easy it was and how cute it turned out.
I can even use this after Valentine's Day. Score!
Here's how it looks on the shelf.
See that cute little tray in the background? I bought it at Decor Steals, and it came in the mail today.
I thought it would be perfect on this shelf.
If you haven't checked out Decor Steals, you need to. They have great stuff and their prices are fabulous.
Here is the hutch with the tray added. I think it was the perfect add on.
Do you decorate for Valentine's Day? Last year was the first time I ever did.
Here is what I had in the exact same spot last year.
My style, and my house, have changed a little over the past year. And, I think I'm liking it.
Thank you so much for stopping by. It means the world to me.
