Vintage-Love Valentine Mantel

Just when I though I didn't have another Valentine Mantel in me, I opened the mail and found a big envelope full of these vintage Valentines from my friend, Jill (thanks, friend!!)! What a great trip to the mailbox, don't you think??

I simply strung these cuties up on a length of twine with some bare-naked clothespins. Because I really like twine and nakie clothespins.

This card is my FAV. Because, you know, nothin' says love like unveiled threats and grammatical errors. 

The I (love) love returned from my first Valentine mantel! So pretty. So sparkly. So true.

And, you know this pink tree has definitely made the rounds in my Valentine Decor.

Want to see a few more festive Valentine mantels? These lovelies were linked up at Thursdays are YOUR Days!

  12. I love mantels. I think they are the most underdecorated place in a house. I thought about hosting something called The Mantel Project where people link up only their Mantels and leave it open.

  22. That is so so cute!! About a week ago I purchased two shutters from an antique shop...exactly like the one you used...and I plan on using them for my mantel too!! I'm about to start putting together my spring/summer mantel soon and shutters were the first thing that came to mind:D
