In the Craft Room: Valentine's Day Mantel

So here is my new mantel all decked out for Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day Mantel

At the top is this heart, that I made a couple years ago and I still love it!
My Ruffly Heart

For a month this mailbox sits out and we all write love notes to each other or draw pictures or whatever and then on V-Day we'll open them all together.
Valentine's Day Mailbox

My banner made from old book pages, some embroidery thread, patterned paper and my Silhouette.
The papers I used were:
Webster's Pages ting-a-lin Collection "Candied Apples"
Echo Park Paper Dots & Stripes Ruby Red Large Dot
Little Yellow Bicycle Elizabeth Park Lacy-Lattice Grey
Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Endless Summer
the girl's paperie by Margie kitch
V-Day Banner

For FHE we talked about Charity and how this time of year is a great time to think of things and people we love. So we made hearts (Lucy cut most of them out) and we all wrote on things and people we love. We do this every year and it always makes me smile the things the kids write.

Are you decorating for Valentine's day??

Your photos and frames on the wall (behind the stair railing) look really cute.

I still need to make that felt wreath. I love the way it looks.

Okay, here is the problem with this post. Clearly, you have filled the frames above the staircase, and clearly you have filled your new bookshelves. But I cannot see the whole thing. Just a snippit. MORE PLEASE!

(That being said, your valentines decorations are lovely.)

i kinda like the brown frame. i thought for sure paint it white because that's what we do, but i'm kinda liking the change on this one for some reason. i think i'm going to copy your heart idea. love love the banner. are the doily's from the silhouette?
