{Valentine Shelf}

I just wasn't feeling my mantle I had decorated for Valentine's Day.  It was missing something.....pink .   What's Valentine's Day without Pink?

So I added a few very simple things.  First are these numbers I got at Hobby Lobby for 2 bucks, if that!  I just gave them a quick coat of Antique Walnut stain.  I love adding a touch of 'real' wood mixed with painted wood.

Then I created this little banner from scrapbook paper.  I was thinking that two banners might be too much, but I kinda like it for now.  Who knows, I'll probably change it and add something different before Valentine's even gets here.  It's how I roll.

I bought these styrophome balls on the same shopping spree to Hobby Lobby.  They were $3 for a bag of 12.  My 9 year old daughter had fun spray painting them outside.  Such a beautiful day yesterday!!
 6 Ballet Pink and 6 Ivory.

Then we just stamped words we thought represented Valentine's Day.  She had more fun doing this part.  Such an easy craft to do with kids!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day spent with those you love.
