Valentine Decorations!

It's time for Valentine's Day decorations to go up! 
I'm simplifying this year! 
In the cubbies I removed the cardinals and added a few Valentine items!
I used several of my red pottery pieces
Last year I found these cute place card holders on clearance
 and used them to hold vintage Valentines
This is one of my favorites!



Top of the cubbies
Some vintage nut cups, kissing birds, cupcake
 and a little girl mailing a Valentine
More reds and my favorite Maxine vase
More Valentines
I like the cubbies but may keep 'tweaking' them!

 I changed out the plate racks and used four white ironstone dinner plates.
The wooden heart my Dad made me many years ago and Last years Valentine from Mr ALC add some color!

The black and red heart dishes were found on clearance at Hobby Lobby last year.  I added vintage milk glass plates to add more texture!
My friend Deb at @ Garage Sale Gal and I did a Valentine Tag Swap!  
This is what she sent me!  Isn't it adorable!
I finally finished mine yesterday and they will get mailed to her tomorrow!   I am getting into crafting a little more and enjoying it a lot!

After returning to the Vet's this morning they decided that Mr. Toes was doing so well he could come home!  He goes back Friday for more blood work and next week to get his stitches out, but looks like our boy is home to stay! 
Thanks again for all you prayers!

I'm joining

Wishing You JOY,
Linda

Happy dances all round! This is such good news! Kisses for Mr Toes and Charlie (for being brave with his brother being in hospital).
I'll 'Valentinize" at the weekend.

Adorable kitten vase(?) where I'm assuming you put a plant in it's bottom to make it look like a tale? I'm holding out for Feb. 1st to put up my valentine decorations!!
