Valentine's Day Decor

Today while I was home I finished putting out the Valentine's Day stuff which was perfect because Domestic Fashionista is having a Valentine's Day Link up today!. I went a little crazy this year...a little more over the top then I usually go. Here is what I did last year:
Simple. I loved the jars with the candy in it
(but I am trying to be good and I knew I would eat it if it was there.)
Here is what I did this year:
What do you think?!
For the mantel, I used mini  heart clothes pins to pin heart doilies to a ribbon. I also added pictures of me and my soon to be hubby..because he is my Valentine!
I made a little wreath
and some new art. 
(They are the same candlesticks as last year)
I added heart stickers to the plates on the wall, got the heart vase and the hearts coming out of it from the dollarstore.
I picked up the glitter roses at the dollarstore too. I put my giant hurricane on red plate, and put out the same scrabble frame from last year!
I also made a new pillow. So what do you think?!
 It is very busy for me, and I can't stop looking at it all...but I think I like it!

It should be a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
Now go link up your amazing Valentine's Day Decor and Projects here!!

I will be linking my Valentine's Day decor to the following parties:
Hello all my blogging friends! I am posting in the middle of the day! Weird right?! They have closed all the schools here at our school board, have closed roads and everything. We got a lot of snow! Not as much as expected but the wind is crazy making huge drifts on the roads and white out conditions!! Anyway, I have a day off. I have to try to get to work on "No Bus Days", but when the schools are closed I get to stay put and stay safe! 

I have cleaned up, hung some curtain rods, worked on my Valentine's Day Mantel (I will be posting pictures soon) and made a list of projects I want to complete. It has been a productive day so far and it isn't even lunch. I was cleaning the craft room and came across things I got thrifting, and at a silent action at school way before Christmas. Guess what my new favourite shape is!? hahahaha. I just realized it as I put everything out to take a picture of.

Apparently Square!!
I picked up the 3 square mirrors thrifting, as well as the small frame. Isn't it cute?!
Originially from Winners. Speaking of Winners I got the huge, heavy square mirror from Winners as well on clearance.

These others things I got at the Silent Auction
This tin hanging thingy for $1
And the square teaset for $2. I also got that gold mirror for $1 (I felt sad for it, there were no bids on it!) hahahah

Get ready for some makeovers!! And also for some Valentine's Day pictures!!
