Valentine's Mantel

I do love this Valentine's Day Bunting from the blog Crap I've Made, but what caught my eye was the shutters she has behind her "LOVE" sign. I am always looking for new and creative ideas to decorate my mantel. Mine is in serious need of help, but because I am only renting I am just collecting ideas until I have a house of my own someday. :)

No Mantel - No Problem :)

I think I've posted things similar to this before, but I think this one is my favorite from the blog Crap that I've Made.

Freezer Paper Stenciling :)

I know freezer paper stenciling is no new thing, but this post on Gluesticks caught my eye and left me wanting to stencling somethings myself. She even explains the how to. Sounds pretty simple. :)

Super Hero Valentine

Playroom Pails

Brown paper packages displayed her playroom pails and I love them. She mentioned that her magnet board was her kids favorite and I realized I needed something like this. I have the magnet letters I just never pull them out. I think it's time. :)
