My Valentine's Day Mantle...

I'm a little late getting started...
 
 
  I dressed my Mantle up
 for Valentines Day today...
 

 
I made a paper heart banner,
for my window...
 
It's a new larger window,
I hung over the mantle
right after Christmas time...
 
I also added the iron candle holders
on each side,
 
I think they need to be softened up
 with some white paint...
 

 



sweet old Valentines...
 
Why don't they make anything this lovely anymore?


 


 
I decorated a new chocolate box...
 
 
a small box,
painted white
and covered in raw silk...
 

 
the Valentines Box
I decorated a couple years ago...





 


Wishing you
a Sweet Valentines Day...
 

 
 
Tonight I'll be Joining...
 
Thanks for stopping by...

Wow, what a gorgeous mantle! I love your beautiful heart banner, and your heart boxes are just stunning! The vintage window makes a perfect backdrop. It's all so soft and romantic!!

The heart banner is so cute, I may just have to make one yet before Valentine's. I agree- why don't they make pretty things anymore?? Guess we just have to keep going antiquing!

Bella, your mantle is so romantic. I love your chocolate boxes and the banner. The roses are so lovely, I especially like the shot of the single rose in the glass.
I didn't do any decorating this year, but I crocheted a few hearts for my son Viktor to take to school.

Golly this is gorgeous! I didn't realize how high your ceilings are. Your mantel is fabulous with the big window, and your heart banner is just so sweet. So soft looking. Such a nice collection of beautiful boxes you're getting. It's all just so very pretty together!

Just a lovely valentine box. I like the sheet music on the box with all of the lace.

The mantle looks lovely Bella and I like the old window with the hearts strung across it. How sweet are the candy boxes repurposed to a romantic feminine look, one even with lavender.
