Valentine Party Time!


I am linking up with Bargain Hunting with Laurie for her first Party...
join in on the fun.

Well here are some of the decorations that I have collected over the years. I love
bears, and angels. Valentine Day is a fun holiday and I love decorating for it
early so I can enjoy the decorations for awhile. This is a little bear that I have
holiday sweaters for and sits on our hearth.




I love decorating my mantel for the holidays and change it quite often. The mirror
above the mantel came from J.C. Penney and I love it. The angels are from partylite.
And of course the T.Y. beanies I bought from the library where I work.


Some sweets and a cute little vintage valentine from my friend Deb sit up on
my kitchen window shelf.



The cute vintage valentines were sent to me from my friend Deb at the Garage Sal
Gal blog. She has the sweetest blog and I am so glad I found it.


Too bad my Dining Room table doesn't stay this clutter free all the time...
I found the table cloth at Kohl's on sale fifty percent off, great deal.
My little heart ornaments on the chandelier I got from Michaels. One of my
favorite places to find goodies with my coupons.




Time for some M&M cookies! Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day and
now I am off to visit some of the other blog party members!

Oh, I love the idea of the bear with the sweater for each holiday! How cute he is. Your mantle looks so pretty, and I love vintage V'tine cards. Your hearts hanging from the chandellier are such a good idea, and they look so prety. Thank you so much for joining the party. laurie

The M&M cookies look so good. Now I want to make some. I better get me some M&M's. I have a couple of Valentine bears but I didn't use them in my decor this year. Thanks for sharing yours and thanks for visiting mine & leaving me a comment on my mantel.
