Valentine Pick-Me-Ups

We all need something to lift up our hearts and spirits in the dead of winter.

Around here,  it's adding Valentine cheer to the front hall table.

We have several weeks to enjoy the colors and sparkles until Valentine's Day! 

My artist sister painted the heart shown below:

While perusing the holiday aisle at Walmart's recently, I found a box of shiny red hearts.

Bought them and placed them in a pretty crystal dish when I got home.

Like a crow, I'm attracted to anything shiny!

Off to the front hall table they went along with any other heart-shaped dishes.

There are two pretty little girl figures, too.

Got both of those at a Family Dollar store. They are so precious.

They are intended for Hispanic girls celebrating their 15th birthdays!

A permanent fixture on the front hall table is a photo of my beloved Mama and Daddy.

 A sweet cranberry heart has also been added.

My Mama got me started on my cranberry glass collection!

My daughter bought me the beaded heart. Guess she knew I'd love it!
