But, Valentine-themed mantels are fun! This is the only time of year I can use copious amounts of heart shaped decor in my house and not feel like a total cheese-ball. Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to get all gushy and mushy, don't you agree?
I love love, do you love love? And, I love my cute "be mine" canvases. I got these 2 inch burlap wrapped canvases at Michaels last week for $0.39. Quite a score, huh? I added the vinyl letters and ended up with this easy, inexpensive mantel art.
I like how the burlap adds a natural element to all the white and red.
I had to add some chalkboard signage. It just seemed like the thing to do (you know I love chalkboard paint!). This silver tray is a Dollar Tree find, painted with my well-used can of chalkboard paint. I've made about 5 or 6 of these silver tray chalkboards. I just keep going back for more.
Wanna see some more LOVE-ly Valentine-themed mantels?? These ladies linked up their mantels at our ongoing Mantel Link Party. What?? You don't know about our ongoing Mantel Link Party? Well, let me tell you. I started a database for your mantel-scapes to live and inspire! It's ongoing, so feel free to link up ANY mantel from ANY season! And, when people are mantel-stumped, they can go look through all of your 'scapes and feel inspired. How cool is that??
Now, on to those featured mantels! Girls, if you like buttons, go ahead and grab a featured button from the button tab (it's up there, behind my picture) (a little to the right) (yep, there)
(I know, I shouldn't blog past midnight. I get kind of...silly).
