Good-by Valentine's Day

It is almost the end of February and I guess it is time to take down Valentine Decoraions. I did not post any pictures of my simple decorations yet so thought I would before I took them down and began to think about Easter and Spring. I have been picking up a few Easter decoations at thrift shops. Don't even bother to look at the major retail stores for decorations because they do not carry anything like they use to. I even noticed that this year that Wal-mart did not carry much of anything in the line of nice Christmas decorations. Target did carry quite a few but we have no Target less than 45 miles from us. So, just scour the thrift stores. They are full of Easter decorations right now and usually are good about putting out decorations in their season. I got a large decorative Easter flag for 4.00 at Salvation Army yesterday with a big bunny on it and it was brand new. Now, I know that Easter is the season of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ dying on the cross for our sins, but no harm in a little bunny display too. Anyway, I post a couple pictures of my very simple Valentine's Day decorations for this year.

 Just simple heart dollies strung on a ribbon, with a little
 red thrift store teddy bear and metal heart garland across the mantel.
Of course our greatest love should be for our Savior Jesus Christ.

 Dollar Tree finds across the kitchen sink window.

 Metal garland on top of my mom's china hutch which displays
picutres of our beautiful married children.

Just adding a picture of the painting my mom did of
Thunder Mountain on Lake Michigan where I
lived as a child. She was a very good artist and this
is my favorite painting of the few that she did. I love
you Mommy.

I lovee color scheme. I saw some like that on but did you make those yourself? If so any walk through tips?
