Changing Things Up a Bit

I'm just changing it up a little bit for February.


I bought this window a few weeks ago
when I ventured out after the snow.

It was a steal for $10.
Although I'd rather it have been $5,
I've seen many windows that went for $25-$35.
They weren't nearly as large.

I will probably keep this one up until we move
and change the scene a bit each month.


I brought my "H" in from the patio.
It's too cold for the patio right now anyway.


The plate looks like it may have been exposed
to too much heat, maybe a house fire.
It was a mere 25 cents.

I added the cushioned pillow for a pop of red.


My friend, Patti, gave me the idea
of a banner from printed music.
She made hers, I bought mine.


I found a glass candy dish that
I bought in November. It was in the trunk, hiding from Mr. H.
I intend to add some Hershey's HUGS AND KISSES
for the kids and Valentine's Day.

Looking back I realize my displays rarely change.
I just move things around a bit.

Unless, I'm buying a piece of ironstone or milkglass,
I don't spend much money.

I've found that creating things sometimes
cost more than buying them.

You, my friends, have a great weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,

  3. The decorations are so festive. Very pretty. Really dresses up a place, don't they?! I almost bought an old window from a junk store the other day. Someone had painted flowers on the glass and it looked quite decorative. I'm such a sucker for pretty's like that.
    Hope your evening is blessed. ~:)

  10. Little changes are good! That's the only way I can handle it. Love your love banner. I find that buying something is just easier sometimes instead of making it.

  11. I love all your pieces and the plate is quite interesting. Your banner looks great. I don't own one of those yet nor have I made one. I just may need to do this, they definitely add some interest. Kelly

  13. I always love your decor. Oh the window! Oh the big beautiful H! (I'm thinking your H looks so much better than my F would!)
    I didn't change much for Heart day this year. Think I'll go big for Spring, hehe!
    Still praying for that house for you!
