peppered with love

I have been busy adding a little touch of Valentines Day to Lemon Lane Cottage.  Having the memory of putting away Christmas fresh in my mind, I don't go overboard.


Just a few trinkets and signs and what's left of the roses from the garden.

 
I thought the fireplace needed a little pop of something, so I made this cute pom-pom and quilted heart garland.


Since I can never make just one of anything...I listed a couple of them in my shop.  The hearts are reversible and stuffed with quilt batting which allows them to lie flat.  I have a couple in turquoise and red and a couple in pinks and red.


Will you pepper your house with Valentine love this winter?  Or will just wait until spring for a pop of color?

xo, Patty

  1. Hi Patty,
    I just have a little fir tree left over from Christmas with red and white lights on it. Normally, I just leave up my evergreens out till March 1, then all the spring/summer comes out...

  4. Your garland is so pretty and such a nice touch on your mantle, Patty. The pom poms are such a clever addition and work so well with the patterned hearts. I love how you can just whip up something that occurs to you!

  7. your garland is so cute, we are in the middle of summer here in Australia and I am decorating our mantle with beautiful flowers from our garden. They don't last long in the hot weather though.

  10. I use to decorate for all the holidays when our girls were growing up. Now that they are hardly Home any more, I don't do as much. I may put out some wooden hearts my guy made for me. They are BIG and Chunky and he painted them a deeper shade of red. Great garland!

  11. Oh, Patty, I just adore that heart and pom-pom garland! I don't have a mantle (or anywhere else) to hang it from though. I'll just have to admire it in pictures on your blog. I do a little decorating for Valentine's Day, but just not in the mood yet since it seems I just finished taking Christmas stuff down!

  17. Very pretty garland! I've never really decorated for seasons or holidays other than Christmas, but I'm thinking I might start with just a few little things to celebrate and brighten the house. Your mantle looks lovely.
