Fixed Up for February

The shelf in my front entry is great fun to change with the seasons. I don't have much Valentine's decor, but I do love red as evidenced in my living room. After taking stock of what I already had and moving things around, I came up with this vignette:
I found this plate a while ago for only a few dollars at either T.J. Maxx or Ross. (They are near each other and when I walk through one, I usually walk through the other.)
 The photo of the Newlyweds spoke romance to me.
The wooden box belonged to my Dad--a gift from a coworker's trip to South America.
I also hung up my Amish quilt purchased several years ago in Lancaster, PA. The colors worked just right.

I like it! Makes me look forward to when I have a home to decorate again.

Lacy said...

Beautiful! I LOVE red too :)

Ginger said...

I love black and red. I don't do so well at decorating these days... I don't ever feel like I'm home long enough! I'm not really good at decorating though... I always admire people who can do that! :)
I think your shelf is very pretty - I bet it catches the eye right off as you come into the room.

I really love that!
I especially love the quilt.
I need to do something, I took Christmas down and I haven't put anything back. It looks like we're either moving or just moved in.
BARE!

That looks very beautiful--and serene. It inspired me to fix up my mantle. I took everything down after Christmas and haven't put anything back up yet.

I LOVE the black plate! So striking! I saw a house once with the bedroom paper in black toile - and I just fell in love! Some day, when the boys move out, I'm going to have a black white bedroom right next to a blue and white! LOL

Perfect for Feb.!
