Love Those "Love Day" Wreaths


Today we are joining Thrifty Things Friday on Diann's blog, The Thrifty Groove.

Why not stop by her blog, say "hello," and see all the ways people are thrifty!


You know how certain items start to multiply and then, before you know it, you have a collection you didn't even plan?


Well, that happens with a lot of things around here.



It even happened with wreaths for Valentine's Day.

One sweet little number turned into two, three and upward.



Some I picked up at yard sales, others on sale in stores and still others, well, who knows where they came from?

Love 'em all.

One shiny red heart hangs on a porch, so neighbors who see that side of our house from their windows can enjoy the view!


Another is in the glass of a door.



One's in the hallway downstairs and a couple more are  in the hallway upstairs.



Of course there's one on the front door, too.


Some lacy pink hearts, made by a sister, hang in the downstairs bathroom.

(She also painted the roses and pink bow on the tin heart. She's quite an artist, don't you think?)






If anybody tried to break my heart, it'd be  quite an undertaking in this house!

DO YOU HAVE SOME VALENTINE HEARTS?

Love all your wreaths! But the shot peeking outside to the snow is great with the lac curtains!

Enjoy your weekend and stay warm!

I do have some lovely hearts, but not as many or as lovely as yours! I love the individuality of the decorations. I also have a heart-shaped cake pan that I hope to use for my hubby's Valentine birthday cake! I am not a decorator, so it won't look professional, but it should still taste good! Thank you for sharing another glimpse of your amazing home!

What lovely Valentine hearts! I now know I must look for a wreath of hearts for the front door! I have many things collected here, but not a collection of Valentine hearts.

First...where do you store all your collections! The angels at Christmas were amazing, but these hearts really are incredible:-D I love that you decorate for each holiday--I think it's important to give each one their proper time, XOXO
