Decorating for Valentine's Day

Now that we are solidly into January I am decorating our condo for Valentine's Day.  I always think maybe there should be some sort of decorations between Christmas and Valentine's but again I didn't get around to finding anything so Valentine's Day it is.  

I didn't add too much to my decorations this year but I did find this little sign in the dollar spot and added it to my collection. I added some sparkly heart confetti to my glass bowl along with some clear stones and a candle.  It didn't turn out exactly how I pictured it because the confetti had a habit of sinking to the bottom really easily but I think I made it work.

My new sign and candle set along with some hearts scattered around have to share the counter with a bunch of jars with avocado seeds.  My husband is trying to sprout some avocado seeds in jars in our kitchen and he won't let me move them so they just had to be worked into the decor.
The little owl I found last year is back on our bar again this year along with a candle.  I would show you the rest of the bar but I didn't bother to tidy up before I went through to take pictures.  There is nothing else very exciting our the bar anyway.

I love walking out the door every morning and seeing this sign on our front door.  I don't usually hang things on the inside of our door but I put a hook on the door for my Christmas wreath so I thought I might as well use it since I didn't feel like going through the hassle of removing it.

Last year I put this garland in my wooden bowl but this year I had other plans for the wooden bowl.  After walking out the door for about a week and seeing my Love Lives Here sign it occurred to me that the garland would be a nice addition to the door. 

Instead of using the heart garland in my wooden bowl I went in a totally different direction. I likes the silver glittery balls that I used in my Christmas decorations this year that I decided they should stay around.  I am super happy with how my silver ball, red heart and wine cork arrangement turned out.  I am liking those silver balls so don't be surprised if I find a way to incorporate them into many more holidays this year!

Some of my decorating is the same as last year but many of my decorations found new homes this year.  Love is in the air!
