Valentine’s Day Vignette

/ / /

This week I haven’t exactly worked on unpacking very much because I’ve been doing some Valentine’s Day decorating. {blush} Priorities, people! Ha!

Since we haven’t gotten our new mantel installed yet {I’ll give you a sneak peek at it soon!}, I asked Beth if it would be okay if I linked up a Valentine’s vignette to her mantel party.  She said, “Of course!” So I got to work.

I chose my apple green desk because it’s one of the half decent parts of my house right now. Ahem.


This corner of my living room is so bright and cheery…

…shhhhh, and romantic!

I made a a heart-shaped burlap wreath and two satin ruffle heart wreaths too.  Tutorials on those babies are coming soon!  They were so easy and inexpensive to make! 🙂

{be still my decor-crafting-lovin’ heart}

Tulips and roses on my favorite flowers and the vignette needed some “life” so I snagged these for $10 at Walmart!

I made this adorable “be mine” topiary {tutorial coming soon on my other blog!}  I used my new Silhouette machine to vinyl “be mine” on my recent thrift store bucket find and I love it!

{happy sigh}

I bought conversation hearts {where did their quality go??} and filled one of my old Ball jars with them.

This leather flower is from our February wedding almost five years ago.  They were worn as boutineers and corsages.  {love}

{more ruffle-y love}

And you can see one of my old aqua insulators peeking out too!

This package tag “l-o-v-e” art was inspired by something I saw in a magazine ten years ago and I made it for my husband before he was my husband. We go wayyyy back…like all the way back to when I was 9 and he was 10. We knew the moment we saw each other that one day we would get married.  Don’t believe me?  Read our love story. 🙂

I used my Silhouette to cut out most of these hearts that I hung from a yard sale picture frame.  The dimensional hearts I just eyeballed and put together.

I’m so happy with how my V-day vignette turned out!  It brightens my day and I hope it’s brightened yours! 🙂

And…a huge thank you to Beth for hosting the blogosphere’s best mantel parties! 🙂

  2. Myra – this is a very fun vingette & the heart wreathes make me very happy. The apple green desk makes me smile, too. Enjoy!!!


  3. Hi Myra, I’m stopping by from A2Z. I really like all of your hearts – I especially like that you hung most of them from ribbons. Nice job, everything contrasts nicely with your green desk.

  4. Hi Myra,
    Your Valentine vignette is just wonderful. Your photography is fabulous. I think the angle shot from the floor up of your green desk is my favorite. Awesome creations! Thanks so much for sharing with us all.

  5. Oh Myra – I am so inspired now to do my table in the foyer! After the Christmas decor was down, I have 2 lamps, large plate on a stand, and 2 candles – boring! I’m ready for hearts, hearts, hearts! <3

  6. I love it! I really cannot wait for your tutorial on how you made those heart shaped wreaths. They are beautiful and I have every intention of copying!!! Found you through Stories of A-Z and so glad I did. Can’t wait to look around the rest of your blog!

  7. Very very very Cute!!!

    I love the Silhouette hearts! I have those shapes, but seeing them put together so nicely in your display makes me want to go cut some out right now! Can’t wait for the tutorials. 🙂

  8. Your vignette is gorgeous! I love the pretty hanging hearts in the frame. Sounds like your love story is similar to mine. My family met my husband’s family when I was 4 and he was 5, but we didn’t start dating until college! 🙂 Have a great week!

  9. How sweet! I love everything. And that green apple desk rocks! I would love to know the color of paint it is 🙂
    Who needs a mantel when you can do this!!!

  10. Love your vinette. I have that same exact desk only I played safe and painted mine white. I am loving yours.

  11. Myra,

    I have been Decorating lives (homes) for 23 years and YOU inspire me and give me a renewed spirit.

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents & abilities with us!

  12. Soo pretty Myra! Not sure why I haven’t seen this before now… I always browse your blog! 🙂 I have a question… Do u get a lot of use out of your silhouette machine? I am thinking I’d like one…is there a certain model u have?thx and blessings Myra!
