Valentines tree

For most of 2008, I followed Heidi's plan of celebrating the seasons, enjoying the current season and not rushing to the next one until it was time for it. I usually put up snowmen and snow-themed decorations in January when I pack away Christmas. But we have already had so much bitter cold weather that when I looked at my box of snow things, I was not amused and did not smile.
So for 2009, I went straight from Christmas to Valentines.
Nina collected these little guys when she was in high school but she left them here when she moved out. Aren't they cute? She may want them back when she sees them.

I bought this silver tree at Pier 1 a few years ago. My mom crocheted the doily. I hand sewed the ornaments from felt and sequin.


  1. How pretty! I wish I had a Valentine's Day tree!!

  2. I always enjoy coming by for a visit, enjoy reading about your helpful homemaking hints.

  3. What a beautiful valentine tree--the doily is just precious.


  4. Very cute valentine's decorations. I think we'll all be ready for Spring this year! I did enjoy our rare snow this past week though!

  5. Your Valentine's tree is beautiful. I was going to put mine up today but need Jos' help to get to the box. So I decided that I will wait and see what the hospital says tomorrow. I have my fingers crossed the news won't be too earth shattering and I can start decorating for this next season ~ the season of love. :) I am glad you are inspired now to not rush the seasons too.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I will keep you informed once I know more...

    Hugs ~
