Valentine decor doesn't have to be limited to just reds and pinks. These whimsical heart shaped pillows could make your heart skip a beat all year long. One, two or all three and you can find them here.
If you are dressing you home for love this week then you might also want to check out this clever idea for your front door that I saw on Garden Web.
They just took two melamine plates from Target and some ribbon and a hanger. What I like about a decoration like this is that it doesn't take up a lot of storage room when Valentines is over. Next year you could reuse it the same way or place the plates on window ledges or book shelves for a splash of holiday fun.
I didn't hang my altered art door candy on the front door. It found a home on an interior door but I did tweak the winter arrangement on my entrance door with a bit of Valentine flair.
I just added some scrapbook paper to these metal hearts that I cut out from a project we did in my mom's kitchen that I will write about soon. I attached straightened wire hangers to the hearts and tied on various lengths of ribbon to the base of each heart. The LOVE heart is actually from a box of stationery that caught my eye because of the black and white graphics but you could replicate this with chipboard letters or stencils or some other decoration all together.
PS. My door is screaming for a new coat of paint and I am ready to change it out... another future post. I will probably be heading back to Amanda's Decorating Dilemmas but I would heart your suggestions for a door color to dazzle this big old white house.
One more thing - I am linking up with The Inspired Room a blog I have followed for several months now. She has a fun blog party of Inspirations of the week. I have never participated before but I thought that the door candy I saw on Garden Web prompted me to take action with my own front door. I guess that qualifies as an inspiration.
