Valentine’s Day is just two days away. Do you have anything special planned?
While we won’t be celebrating per se, Beloved and I do plan on tucking into our favourite Tesco curry, washed down with a few bevvies. No, really… it’s DELICIOUS!!!
I’m sure we’ll dress up for the occasion, too.
In our PJs.
We’re not entirely without romance, you know!
OK, so we may not celebrate the annual commercial love fest, but that doesn’t stop me changing up OneandSeventy’s décor.
Including Valentine’s Day.
Aside from work, pottering around the house changing up displays and creating vignettes quite possibly takes up the biggest chunk of my waking hours. Even when I’m waiting for the kettle to boil, I’ll be moving this, or tweaking that.
But I do NOT lie awake dreaming up crafts, or planning new displays though.
It used to drive Beloved nuts.
But since starting The World of Suzy Homemaker, I think he’s embraced it.
Now all I have to do is convince him that DIY is not the work of the devil.
Seasonal displays are my absolute favourite.
Especially the mantel.
I enjoy it even more if I can combine my love of #stylingtheseasons with crafty touches, like the mantel Love Banner, that I blogged about earlier this week.
Sadly, I did not make the heart wreath on the mantel mirror.
But I did recently discover The Range, where I bought it.
One of the mirror decorations I did make, though, was the ribbon heart in the hallway.
When you’re a serial crafter, you find yourself scouring the aisles looking for inspiration. Sometimes, you happen upon something that makes you go: “yeah, it’s nice… but I could make it look SO much better!” Such as it was with this project.
There I was, strolling around B&M hunting down reasonably-priced additions to my Valentine’s Day décor, when I discovered a great hanging heart. Weighty, with a bit of substance, it was the perfect size and shape.
Better still… it was only £1.99. Bargain!
Although perfectly usable as it was, I was looking for something rather less country kitchen and more sensual boudoir.
This is so easy, it can hardly be called a tutorial, but in case you fancy giving it a go yourself, click here to see how I went about making it.
I hope you enjoyed my little homage to lurrrrrve. If you did, please draw back your cupid’s bow and drop me some love below!
A hui hou,
