I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I love decorating for almost any holiday. I have this wonderful white tree and it screamed to be decorated for Valentine's Day. I made the paper garland and a few of the ornaments but a lot of them came from Craftster members like craftylittlemonkey, alwaysinmyroom and grab a coffee . I think I need a tree topper. I also decorated my mantle a little bit.

I had these lights and added ribbon and vintage valentines to the strand. I collect vintage valentines so I just went through my stash to find my faves.

You can also see some of my other Craftster treasures on my mantle that I keep up all year long.

Great idea for celebrating Valentine's Day that more people should try!  The ornaments/garland look great and I like how the red lights give the white tree a pink aura appropriate for the holiday.  The art on those vintage Valentines is fab too (I dig the scared kids with the ghost).  I also envy the nice green foliage that I can see outside your window--nothing but snow and bare trees here!

One of my local libraries decorates their Christmas tree year-round, just changing the ornaments for the various holidays throughout the year (it's just a normal green artificial tree, nothing fancy).  Theirs isn't anywhere near as nice/diverse as yours though, as they've mainly just got simple plastic red heart bracelets hanging from it.

So cute! I love the vintage valentines mixed in with the lantern lights. All of it is so fun Smiley Your enthusiasm for decorating for all the holidays is starting to make me want to do the same! Grin

Awesome! I was just looking at that heart-in-hand embroidery of yours today in fact. That makes a great central feature for your mantle. I love that you decorated for love day, how divine Smiley.

Eep! Love it! I've got a pink floral tablecloth going on and maybe this will inspire me to make the Vday garland I've been thinking about!
