The "holidays" are over, as we refer to them, but there is another holiday approaching...Valentines Day! Not that I'm necessarily a huge advocate of the day or anything, but if you don't know/can't tell, I love to decorate for any and every holiday (except St. Patricks...I just don't know about all the green. I love green, but thinking of putting shamrocks and leprechauns on my walls just doesn't seem right to me)!!
I have this plate rack that is now semi-permanently on the wall. Once I took down the Christmas plates there was nothing and it was looking kind of bare. So I was on the hunt for some Valentines plates. A great place to buy seasonal items of this nature is Secret Haven at the Rock Loft up in Kaysville? Not quite sure, but it's up north. Anyway, I called and they said they had some plates that they thought might work with my plate rack. My fabulous sister who lives up that way picked them up for me and brought them today! Hooray, no more bare wall.
This picture doesn't really do them justice, but they are cute! I promise.
Now I next was thinking that it would be fun to do some blocks. How I didn't copy this idea earlier is beyond me. I went over to Home Depot, picked up a 2x4 and had a guy cut it for me there into 4 inch blocks. I paid just under $2 for that! I was so happy with myself! Then I found some cute paper and embellishments. I would say for my four blocks it cost me under $10 to make them. Feel free to copy my copied idea!!
