I thought I was finished decorating for Valentine’s Day. I mean, the kids are grown now, so I can’t say I’m doing it for them. But my plain flat coffee table was bothering me. With nothing to adorn it except an old vintage tapestry, it was becoming a dumping ground for newspapers and magazines and stuff.
This tapestry I found at a barn sale is a mini version of the one my grandmother Mary Lillian Nunn had hanging over her couch as long as I can remember. (She is the namesake for Mary Lillian Vintage.)
I had a vintage typewriter sitting on an antique school desk that seemed lost there. Unnoticed. So I brought it out.
Cute, but it needed something. A sprig of something. So I looked around. I found nothing in Hobby Lobby, and then something Valentine-y caught my eye in Walmart, and it was only 97 cents! I tied a piece of twine around it and set it on top.
Nice, but it still needed something. I had some old Bingo cards and red hearts lying around. I wondered if they would work.
Perfect! Well, until I found a box of Victorian Valentines from a garage sale that I had forgotten about.
Now it was perfect. Another Valentine vignette. It doesn’t matter if no one but hubby and the dogs see it. It’s pretty, and it makes me happy.
I think I’m finished with Valentine decorating. What about you?
March is around the corner and I’ll soon be looking for leprechauns and clovers.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
