Will you Be My Valentine?

February 14, 2012

This really is one of my favorite times of year.  The perfect excuse to have ridiculous amounts of pink hanging up in your house and as much girly stuff as possible.  Thanks to fabulous reader Susan who sent me the sweet paper birds at Christmas time.  We hung them up then AND they fit right in with our Valentine tree.  What’s that?  What’s a Valentine tree?  You know, it’s little Christmas ornaments that were on clearance, some old silver chain and a few paper birds.  If it looks sparse it’s because Creamie lost interest in decorating it after not too long.  I guess she got burned out on decorating trees in December.  But Happy Valentines Day anyway, even if you don’t have a tree.

(I got this little one at Christmas from Hobby Lobby a few years ago.  And one day I’ll be brave enough to buy a full size pink tree for Christmas. You know, like this one.   Actually, yeah.  I could totally see that tree in my living room.  I would probably keep it up from Halloween clear through June.)

    Happy Valentine’s day! I am sort of a grinch, more of a non-celebrater today, but I think I’ll get something for my kids and husband while I’m out today. And, happy birthday yesterday! It’s my brother’s and niece’s b-day, too. 🙂

    I think it’s because you need more lights on your tree. No, seriously. Take some lessons from your Christmas self and pull out the light box!

    Your tree is perfect! As Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said “Less is more.” Love that the birds can multi-task!

    i LOVE valentine’s day! and i love the pink tree.

    ps one of my favorite christmas-ey rooms is the one i posted here: http://petuniaandpoppy.blogspot.com/2011/12/homemade-christmas.html,
    with the little pink tree next to the fireplace. i would love to decorate like this, but sometimes it’s hard to make that transition away from tradition, to something that’s ‘out of the norm’.
