Happy Hearts


After all the Christmas decor is removed, the house seems bare and I actually like that for a few weeks,


but I love that Valentine's Day is the next holiday.


I don't decorate every room, but I have a fun bringing out all my happy hearts.


I'll admit to going a bit overboard in the kitchen,


but the head chef has not complained.


And I will also admit to constantly tweaking things on the shelves.



The guest room has the most Valentine decor -


too bad no guests are scheduled for February.


It's left for me to enjoy


all the Valentine touches.


A little Valentine table setting from last night


will remain until the asparagus fern looks shabby.


I even tucked a few hearts here and there in the garden.


How about you,


are hearts popping up around your house?

Carol ~ no V-day decor here... I'm enjoying the blankness till it is time for spring stuff!

podso said...

It's lovely how much you enjoy your home and creating and "tweaking" your sweet vignettes. Always something special to see at your house!

Sorry to say no hearts in my house, but I sure like yours. They look great. Love always seeing your vignettes. Wish I could crawl around in the garden, if I did, I would need the paramedics to get up on my feet. LOL

Enjoy your weekend.

I ♥ what you've done in your cottage for Valentine's Day. There are a few hearts popping up here at our house too. :)

Terra said...

You have lots of heart goodies, the rose flower pillow is my favorite.

How could the 'head chef' object to being surrounded with reminders of love. I just love what you have done in the kitchen. It speaks to my heart.

Happy Valentine's week ~ FlowerLady

Oh so pretty, Carol! Well around here, too much work, cold, snow and general busyiness keeps us from celebrating our 38th anniversary of meeting on Valentines Day. But as we've both agreed, every day for us is a celebration of our union and friendship and escapades! No red (I don't like the color) in my home....just the same muted tones but I love it.

HAVE FUN!

Gosh, how cute! Carol, I love your cottage in all its red and hearts for February! No hearts here, just a flag in the landscape.

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

What a sweet little home - love the little vignettes, but what really caught me eye was the red and white checked dinner plate - love it!!

NanaDiana said...

Carol- Everything looks so sweet and festive. I wish I could spend a night in that sweet guest room!!!

I haven't done anything for Valentine's Day here. All of my decorating stuff is stored in a warehouse...sigh...there is always next year (I hope). xo Diana

Terry said...

Hi Carol!
I love your hearts! I also have lots of hearts around. Decorating for Valentine's Day definitely helps brighten things up. It's kind of dreary here in NJ, so the bright red really helps. I love the way you cut out the hearts on printed paper. Love your guest room too!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Terry

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Just a few hearts here and there. I'm not able to do much decorating or cleaning up at the moment. I hope by Spring to have a real change in decor!! Love your touches of red in the kitchen and guest room.

Melissa Wiges said...

I love all your cute red and white dishes in your kitchen! I don’t think I will be doing much for Valentines Day, unless I get a heart shaped box full of chocolate.

Ricki Treleaven said...

Beautiful post, and I wish I could tuck some pretty things into our garden, but as it's supposed to rain the next ten days, I can't fluff the garden at all. We're all mildewing around here!!! ;P SO I'll have to enjoy seeing yours, Carol!

I love seeing the pretty hearts and other touches of red around your adorable cottage.

xo,
Ricki Jill

karen@somewhatquirky said...

Well, I don't have any hearts out yet, but you've rather inspired me. Maybe I'll do some tinkering today...

You're hearts are lovely and charming. Valentine's Day is the best day to have a personal chef, so enjoy!

Melanie said...

Hearts are popping up in my house, but on a very small scale! I have one heart decoration on the shelf in the bathroom and the basket of hearts you made on the table at the end of the hallway, but that's it! I love how you incorporated hearts all over your house. I would love to be a guest in your empty guest room for February! We are at 6 degrees this morning and buried under more than a foot of snow. Only in my dreams would I be hopping on a plane to CA. ;-)

Phyllis Brandon said...

It all looks so cheerful and happy. I love it! I have a few Valentine things our and am enjoying them. Then on to St. Patrick's Day :)

Kim said...

You can never have too many hearts...especially when they're red!!

Botanic Bleu said...

Carol,
Love your hearts popping up around your house and garden. There are a few scattered around my house, too.
Happy Valentine's Day,

Carla said...

No hearts at my place. Maybe when we get to the forever home. ;o)

Carol, I always love your sweet hearts. And of course, I love your kitchen! Not a bit overboard for me. :) Is the asparagus fern from your garden? Can't wait till I have things to pick and bring indoors. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

We have been traveling so didn't see this before today. Love your Valentine hearts décor. What a shame you had no guests to enjoy that adorable bedroom!

Jessica@CapeofDreams said...

So pretty! I have wanted to comment since you published and on other posts as well, but my work Google account won't allow me to comment on blogs, and Blogger does not allow me to switch accounts easily. Such a bother! But I always enjoy your posts even if I am not able to comment.
