Valentine’s 2016 ready for some family love

Valentine’s day is coming up this weekend.  I’m looking forward to spend it with my cutie patootie grandson.  My mom and whoever else may show up at my door.  I love pulling out my thrifty finds to decorate for any occasion, but most especially for a holiday about love.  The pop of red I get to add around my home really makes for a festive holiday to me.


Valentine’s 2016

Right from my front door thru to my back door the red hearts are everywhere.  Most especially on my living room ledges.  Which I love to switch up for each holidays.  And of coarse my apartment fireplace gets a pop of red after a quick run to the dollar store.  I’m so happy to have a real dollar tree just a few blocks from me.
