Valentine Decorations and How I Store Them

I am hoping that everybody had a wonderful Valentines Day and felt the love they deserve.  I did, however, I was also very busy.  I don't understand how 2, 3 and 4 year-old's can get so excited.  Their energy level is almost as high as Christmas.  Anyway, this is a little late, especially since I took everything down today.


I love my Cloche.  I got it from Decor Steals.  Decor Steals is so cool.  Please go and check it out.  I have a button located just below on the right side of my blog.  It works like Pick your Plum.



A little pink love bird.



I found them at The Dollar Tree, fell in love, and bought a few.



I got this cutie at Hobby Lobby and paid more that $1.00.  They only had one left.



So, I decided to make one.  I just sprayed it with a light glossy pink.



He is so cute.



The Big Red Hutch.




This cute little picture was made from an old frame (painted it pink), news paper, a heart shaped cookie cutter and a hole punch.



The cone topiary was from last year, and I made the pretty beaded decorative ball for Christmas.  I used one my awesome Styrofoam balls that I got from The Dollar Tree, and simply glued some pretty pink pearls on it.





The Entryway Shelf.



My son Matthew threw this vase on a wheel at school.



Oh, how I love this.  Another Decor Steals item (seriously go check them out).



It is now time to put them away.  I used one of my Decor Steals boxes to pack all my Valentines up and closed it off.



Before I closed it up, I listed all the contents.   Labeled it Storage, Valentine, and numbered it #1.



I put Val #1 on all sides of the box, put it in the attic for storage and filed my index card away.  That way, I can just look at my card to "see" what is in it.  Also, if I change the contents, or, add another box to my Valentine collection, I just change and/or add my index card.  File under Storage, then by Holiday in the file.




I did the same with all my Christmas decorations.  I will eventually get tubs, but for now, boxes work just fine.

See you soon, I am working on my ribbon now.

XOXO
