February Inspiration at All About Home #27

Hi Friends, I hope you all had a fun Valentine's Day weekend. We stayed low-key and enjoyed a dinner in with a movie. Thanks so much for coming by each week to share what you've been up to. There's still a lot of romantic Valentine inspiration from last week, so I'm sharing a little of that as features this week. We're all looking forward to Spring, and I know it will be making a showing soon.

Vintage Paper Heart Garland with Love


A few weeks ago I was admiring a post from Angie at Postcards from the Ridge and fell in love with a vintage paper garland she had purchased from Etsy a few years ago. Now, I don't want to be labeled a "copy cat", but I went right to the Etsy Shop, LaCasaMia, and ordered one for myself. I DO love vintage ephemera and paper collage pieces, so I was so excited to see it arrive a few days ago all the way from Belgium.

A Vintage Valentine Entry

I had fun bringing out my vintage Valentine pieces for this "new" Entry display. We will have been here, at the new cottage for almost a year. I've decorated and celebrated all the other holidays here, so this is the last holiday that's "new" to this house.

Weekend Inspiration and a Valentine Linky Invitation


Hi Friends, January was definitely a gray and gloomy month here in Missouri. We were cold and icy most of the time and the first part of February has been the same. I gave my decor a rest during January with mostly neutrals, but I've enjoyed bringing out the romantic reds and pinks of Valentine's Day. I have a few more Valentine vignettes to share with you all before next week, so here are a few pics from the top of the cookbook nook in the Hearth Room.

Farmhouse Table Valentine Tableau

My Garden Room farmhouse table needed a new look once February arrived. I'd been using my rustic vintage wooden ice cream-maker bucket which I've loved, but I wanted something a little more garden-y and "french-y" for Valentine's Day. I cleared the table top and tried something fresh for February.

Hello February at All About Home #25


Hi Friends, so glad you're here!
Everyone glad we're on to February? January is always a hard month because we have the anticlimax of "after Christmas" and things just seem sort of blah to a lot of us. I'm ready for all the fun of Valentine's Day and some "sweet" inspiration.  You too? so you've come to the right place. Let's have some fun this month!

Vintage Valentine Vignette

I've been trying to round up some of my Valentine's Day decor and realizing a box is likely hidden underneath a stack of boxes in my storage room. I know... story of my life these last 6 or so years. I know exactly what's missing, I just don't know where it is. So I'm using a few vintage cupid pieces that were easy to get my hands on in the china closet.

A Vintage Romance

Hard to believe that it's actually February.
 I thought I just brought out the new calendar.

It looks like one more holiday will be here with no chance to decorate either house. Nothing like having 2 houses and both of them not in a place that I could put anything other than a bouquet or a box of chocolates. Which by the way, either of those would be fine with me. So instead I'm sharing some past photos for a little Valentine inspiration.

Valentine Entry


I have a few vintage favorite pieces I've used for Valentine's for years.
I mix and match and move them around each year, and this year
I'm using my vintage ceramic mold here as an accent on the Dining Room Table.

Share the Love...

I don't go "all out" for Valentine's Day. I don't think many of us do unless we have kiddos that have fun with it, and expect to see decorations for every holiday that comes along. I enjoy bringing some reds and pinks and vintage items into the decor, especially here in the Kitchen Sitting Area. That's the place where I can indulge my holiday decorating gene to the fullest.

Vintage Valentine "Love"


I'm getting a few things together for Valentine's Day here in the Kitchen Sitting Area,
 but it's taking me a little longer this last week to get things accomplished. 
So, I thought I'd share a little Valentine's Love while I'm getting the rest of it together.

Visual Valentines

I love to go shopping, and part of the fun is checking out the store window displays, especially the holiday ones. Creativity and Visual Displays go hand in hand when it comes to merchandising, and what could be more of a challenge that taking a large empty space and transforming it into a shopping fantasy. It's been awhile since I've been shopping in St. Louis, but I was wondering what kind of Valentine fun I was missing. Anthropologie and Louis Vuitton are always ones you can count on to be out-of-the-box amazing. Here are a few images from some Valentine Inspired store window displays...



































all images from my Pinterest board, Valentines

and here are a few images of Valentine fun from blogposts, past.


























And just to round things out,
 I decided to go ahead and display my red transferware in my new old/cupboard.


















Have a wonderful Valentine's Evening...

Be Inspired #176

Hi Everyone and Welcome to 
Be Inspired
Do you have big plans for Valentine's Day?
How fun to have it land on a Friday, for all of you "date night" peeps. We eat out several times over the weekend, so I imagine we'll do our regular Friday Night, "Movie Night" with some take out Indian Food. Movie Night consists of a Netflix choice and after dinner a large gray cat camping out on my lap for the duration. Miss Wrigley prefers something quiet and romantic, as she hates car chases and loud explosions. However you spend your evening, just let it be with the ones you love!

OK, on to the party. 
Let's check out some of the wonderful links from last week:


The always amazingly creative, Julia, from Vintage With Laces
made this wonderful Junky LOVE Sign




Leave a love note for your sweetie, with these Mini Love Letters
from Kerryanne at Shabby Art Boutique



This Secretary ReDeux started out needing all kinds of help.
The perfect challenge for Karen from Redoux Interiors.



How wonderful are these Personalized Grain Sack Cards?
from Lori at Marvin's Daughters
I'm hoping she'll do special orders!



Laurie from Heaven's Walk found that her fabric stash was taking over her studio.
So she created this Vintage Blue Cabinet, which looks like a real vintage piece.



These are a great project; DIY Column Pedestals 
from Poppy at With a Dash of Color.



Need a special Valentine breakfast? 
Whip up a batch of these yummy Scones and Jam 
from Jeanette at Creating a Life


thanks gals for sharing the inspiration!
