Hello everybody! I am back after taking some time off blogging. It has been crazy here with business and great things happening to our family. But I am glad I am back. I have been spring cleaning our house, organizing and doing some projects. It has been really cold here in the Midwest, so we have been inside a lot even though it seems like Spring is slowly coming. I had to do something to get the house in spring mode since I pretty much never decorate for Spring. So in my last trip to Walmart I found these in the craft/floral section:
I immediately thought something like this:
So I got my glue gun and went to work…it is pretty much self-explanatory: I cut the flowers and hot glued them into the wreath. Easy!
For those that know me really well, you know my passion for decor, so I get advantage of some of the Holidays to be able to decorate even if it is a little. Valentines is a holiday that we do not care that much about, so I go “light” on the decor, but I still like to add something here and there to make the house special for the kids. Target has really cute Valentine’s decor in the dollar section, so if it is cute and cheap I am sold. My mantel got some love…
We are loving these little mailboxes to leave love notes each morning. I look forward to reading them each day…one morning I opened one and I found a highlighter inside it but no note. I asked who left the highlighter in there. My oldest (he is 10 1/2) said it was him. Then I was really curious and asked him why he decided to leave a highlighter and not a note and he said “you did not get it mom?” and I replied I didn’t. He said “you are the highlight of my day!” And then my heart melted completely.
The little heart here is from Hobby Lobby and the burlap banner is from Target, only $3! It was too long so I cut it and made two instead…LOL!
The “XOXO” and “LOVE” signs are from…yes, you guessed it…Target DOLLAR section!
The tea lights and containers are from the dollar store.
Here is the other half of the banner…
The kitchen got some lovin’ too. Those plates are from Target. I purchased them years ago.
This is from the dollar store from years ago.
This little banner is from Target (yes, it is my favorite store)
Long ago I purchased this lamp at the Goodwill for 4.99. It was ugly but I saw the potential.
