Valentine's Decor

Yes, my Valentine's Day decor is up mid-January!
If you recall this post, I was ready the first week of the new year! :)

I printed/cut and hung the free printable banner.  I intended to jazz it up as I mentioned, but I could never find those hearts, so I just used twine.  And I kinda like the simple look.
I finished the 2nd tissue topiary.  I will never do that again!  I always pick the very tedious time-consuming crafts!  Gees Louise!  

And I guess I am becoming more and more like my mother (scary!)   :)  
 I have the sudden urge to hit all the local thrift stores - just to see what I can 'find'!  I get so many ideas on Pinterest, and a lot of the projects are from refurbishing old things  - i.e. spray painting candle sticks, picture frames, etc...  Both sets of candle sticks in the picture above and below were from thrift stores.

I found a picture frame for $.50 so I snatched it up, added a little red spray paint and inserted a free printable.
The middle vase with the red hearts was also a thrift store find for $1.00!

Finding such good bargins is so fun!  But I think it's also making me cheap!
It's so hard to pay full price for something if I can find something similar for a quarter!  :)
But when there's only one income, you gotta do what ya gotta do!
