*Disclaimer - my living room is not lilac, the walls are a taupe, I just cannot get the lighting right with my camera*
I do not know about you, however I have really taken to decorating for Valentine's Day over the last few years. One of the main reasons is that I LOVE decorating for Christmas, however when it comes down I am always so disappointed - everything looks bare. Well, I have tried decorating for winter however that is not working for me. So, Valentine's Day has become quite a hit at our house! The funny thing is, Matt and I never actually celebrate Valentine's Day:)
I know many people have done their version of the Pottery Barn Love wall hanging. Well, the design is not my style, however I did like the overall idea. Inspired by ideas I have seen on many blogs, here is what I did
I also knew I wanted something on the other side of our window. I bought 4 extra sheets of the scrapbook paper and then searched for some 12x12 pieces of wood. JoAnn wanted $5 for each which seemed a bit silly to me. So, I headed to my local Lowes and found Steve and Casey - my favorite 2 guys in the lumber department. They helped me find at 2x2 piece of wood for $1.97 and they cut it into 4 12"square pieces. I decided to leave my little tabletop tree out and picked up some hearts to decorate it. I think we may start decorating this for each season/holiday.
