I lined up all the heart-shaped rocks we've been collecting over the last year on the new mantel.
And then, because I just can't stop with minimalism, I added cards from Valentine's Days past and beeswax hearts on a branch (which turned out to be hazardous over the woodstove).
It's amazing how simple it is to find something, once you open your eyes to look for it.
Then I added a bit of red to brighten the kitchen,
And some hearts here and there and everywhere.
Next weekend is already chocka-block full, so I got started on the boys' Valentines.
Z has never once shown any interest in helping to make Valentine's and this year E seems to have joined him in curmudgeon-dom.
I thought briefly of buying them some Ninjago Valentine cards ('cause nothing says I Love You like the Weapons of Spinjitzu), but decided that I didn't want to break an eleven-year streak of homemade Valentines, so I made them myself. Maybe they'll help me paint them next weekend (ha!).
What are you Valentining?
