Show and Tell - Valentine Decor

Time for Kelli's Show and Tell, go here for more inspiration.

I saved my favorite Valentine decoration for last. I bought this large heart shaped ornament at TJ Maxx after Christmas for about $8. The "heart is 9 inches long, and 13 inches long with the beads included.
When I bought the large ornament I knew exactly where I would hang it - in front of the mirror on the hall tree in the foyer.

It was hard to hang up and I'm so afraid it would fall and break! I have it wired, then I taped electrical tape over the wire!
This shot above show more of the design on the ornament.

I actually did my show and tell last night when I shared my mother's baskets that I decorated with cherubs and lace. Go to the next post to see it!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Valentine decor.

I wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day - with lots of chocolate!


My husband is feeling better and we are hoping to go away for the weekend.

Dear Katherine,
That red heart ornament is just lovely! Your entire blog is a delight. First, thank you for your sweet visit to my humble blog..and also for understanding that the "10 things about yourself" was just humor. I do NOT drink anything but non alcoholic beverages.
Goodness, I do love that heart!! The colors on your blog are SO striking.
Warmly,
Mona

Wow that is a gorgeous red heart. Great score at TJ Maxx! The red has so much depth, which I guess makes sense for a heart!

Dearest Katherine!

First of all, I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day yesterday! Your red heart looks gorgeous!

I am so glad that my lavender heart arrived in time! Yes indeed, that was quite fast! And I am so glad you liked it, I especially send you a heart that you could "use" all year long! ;-))

Have a wonderful Sunday! Over here, it's 7h22 a.m. and I just woke up, the world around me (including my DH) is still asleep!)

Best wishes from Germany, Anita
