Valentine Tree

I put together a Valentine tree, just left my silver tree from Christmas up in my home office and added some Valentine cards and treasures to the tree for fun.When your my age you have to make your own fun. LOL This was fun
 I started off putting a pink wreath on top of the tree then the little mouse with the key to my heart in his hand. I added some red tulle for garland around the tree,even added some plastic pink carnations
 I know this is a pink bunny but she s so pretty and her colors is perfect for my tree decor,below is a tag I made once
 These are old valentine cards I found in a auction box, and boy do I miss auctions ,they have mostly gone to online auctions which is not fun at all I like to look through boxes of old old goodies

 This dress is a card which opens up and I have mailed to friends through the years I  still have a few left

 Looking across the room as the tree stands proudly all cluttered up LOL
I have grand kids pictures across the room showing up in my round  mirror behind the tree, my chandelier is really reflecting also in the mirror also
This picture you can't hardly make out the red hearts on the tree because of the red tissue skirt I have under the tree.

I was looking for an old post a few years ago of some cute Valentine things,if I find it i'll post them also. I have kept several heart boxes from past valentines and need to fill them with chocolates to give out this year to the grandsons, my favorite was given to my oldest daughter,it was a scrabble heart game.

What will we show next? after Valentine's Day LOL

  1. Oh Janice, you make me laugh! But you also wow me with all of your pretties and creativity! Your tree is beautiful in that red room and I love the reflection in the mirror of the chandy and your three grandkids, so precious!
    Have a wonderful day, talk to you soon! It's off to work I go!

  2. That is SO cute! It inspires me to do something festive around here today. :-)

  3. Dear Janice:
    We are back in Colorado and I was wrong - not 12" of snow but rather 20"!!!
    Your tree is darling and so fun! Love your wall decor and that frame with the candlebra in it!

  4. I meant to tell you there is a Louis Vuitton trunk at a local consignment shop in Co SPgs for like $2,000.00.

    1. oh do tell me the name of the shop?
      This is my main weakness in life besides food LOL

  11. The best part of Valentine's Day IS the vintage cards! I love them everywhere. Yep, I have my own fun, too!

  12. Darling! Love the old fashion Valentines!

  13. HPS! Such a sweet tree. When I worked for the University Hospital a friend worked for the Cardiology dept. and they put up a Valentine tree filled with beautiful hearts. I loved that idea. Have a great weekend and enjoyed this visit. Hugs!

  14. Oh gosh, it's just darling! And I really am not a big fan of trees for other seasons than Christmas. Love your vintage Valentines! I have never been to an auction and always thought it sounded so fun!

  17. I love old cards and it was fun to see how you are enjoying some of yours. Happy Pink Saturday.

  18. What a beautiful tree. I don't decorate much but always set out a little Valentine book of Poems my husband sent me the first year we were married back in 1960. One of my prized possessions. Have a good week. Love your sidebar photos.

  19. Your tree is sweet and bravo to you for taking some "play time" to decorate it and enjoy your treasures!
