hugs & kisses

I picked up a lot of decorations last year after Valentine's day for disgustingly cheap.  There are lots of ways to add red & pink to your existing decor without necessarily using "Valentine" pieces.  I switched out a green bow for a new red one on the vintage ice skates.  Tea light candles or candlesticks are inexpensive and easy way to add a festive splash of color.  (could double for Christmas too!)  Use red (or pink) dishes that you already own- fill with valentine M&Ms or a potted plant.  The red plate was so easy to make for a special display!  Simply take a dry-erase marker and write/draw whatever your heart desires... wipes off so easy and you can change it everyday- maybe even adding a personalized note :)

At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.  ~Plato

The heart has its reasons that reason knows nothing of.  ~Blaise Pascal, Pensées, 1670

"A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous."

"There is no remedy for love but to love more."~Thoreau
"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment." ~Jane Austen 
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.  ~Robert Frost 
If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?  ~Author Unknown  :)
