My whole Valentine Porch centered around one tablecloth and a bunting. It’s also the first time I’ve ever decorated any part of my home for Valentine’s Day. I just may have to do it more often, it made for a fun day.
I stumbled upon the plaid tablecloth at my local grocery store and thought what the heck I’ll make a few pillow covers with it, and it’ll be an inexpensive way to decorate.
And I’m a sucker for plaid or buffalo check anyway. The tablecloth had enough material to make 3 pillow covers and with the last scrap piece I tied a bow around the rustic deers neck.
It happened to be 60 degrees the day I added everything to the porch, but since then we’ve had snow, freezing rain, and blistering cold weather. I’m beginning to wonder why we didn’t make our Florida Vacation a
little, lot longer.
I’m reading a book series, The Bregdan Chronicles by Ginny Dye, my Mom gave me while in Florida and all I want to do is sit on the porch swing and read the afternoons away.
The sunshine can be deceiving, it looks warm outside but it’s NOT. I use our porch everyday when the weather is nice. It’s a great place to catch a nap, the swing makes into a bed and it’s so peaceful just listening to the birds.
I have hopes that spring will be early this year, even though I know the ground hog saw his shadow, because I have wrens nesting already.
I was hoping that was a good sign or are wrens an early nesting bird?
I’ve noticed them singing and adding new sticks to the already formed nests inside the birdhouses. For some reason we have ground moles already pushing the earth up into mounds around our yard.
We’ve never had them, and certainly not this early in the year. Maybe that’s my sign that spring is near??
Do you do any decorating for Valentine’s Day at your place?
