I didn't put up too many decorations for Valentine's Day; although, it is one of my favorite days! Every year on this special day of looove., I pull out the love letters my grandfather wrote to my grandmother during WWII. They are so nostalgic and the upside down stamps mean, "I love you."
I found the French post office box at a flea market...perfect for this day. Tulips are my favorite flowers!
I love this picture of my mom! This was taken in her dorm at college holding a box of chocolates my dad gave to her. They were married for thirty-four years, before she passed away. The letters from my grandfather are dated '1945.' Many of them discuss how he can't wait to meet his baby girl; my mom. She was born in 1943 and was three years old before he came home from the war. My grandmother was told that he had been killed in action; however, he returned home and got to meet his only child! Sadly, she would pass years before he would at the age of fifty-four, and his heart was broken until the day he died. I love the story these letters tell...
I cut out these River Birch hearts at Christmas. For Valentine's, I glued them to some twine and hung them on our kitchen chalkboard.
Some of the bark was a beautiful shade of pink.
My girls wanted to give flowers to their teachers for Valentine's. I found the small vases at Hobby Lobby and filled them with roses, baby's breath and stems from our Cherry Blossom trees. I think these would be perfect for a wedding! (The vases came in three sizes and are on sale now!)
Ahhh...Pinterest. The ideas are endless and oh, so simple! I love these little flags from Dixie Delights!
About a million things, but one of them is remodeling our master bath! (See my Pinterest board here.) I'll share pictures soon!
Happy Valentine's Day!
