{Sweet Valentine's Day Mantle}

I don't typically decorate for Valentine's Day, but honestly with a child, every holiday is exciting! I am so excited for it this year.  I am so excited for St. Patricks Day too! This baby has an outfit for every holiday :)  Anyway, I didn't go overboard for a Valentine's Day mantle because I didn't want it to be too sweet, I am living with 3 boys, remember? I made all the pom poms with my Pom Pom maker from JoAnn, I love it! So simple and it's almost therapeutic for me {weird, I know}.  I used some pink and white twisted twine to string through the middle of the pompoms. I think it turned out super-cute!

I did the chalkboard from a print that I saw on Pinterest that I thought was sweet.  I think it was actually supposed to be a card, but I translated it to my trusty chalkboard :)

This was my babe while I was taking pictures.

The {faux} flowers I have had since college.  The little vase they are in is a Kate Spade vase that I have had for a couple of years.  I LOVE this vase! And the candleholder was a Goodwill steal that I spray painted silver last year before Christmas, or maybe 2 years ago.  The wreath is from Christmas, but hey it ties in pretty well with the feathers for V-Day too, I may even use it for my St. Patty's Day mantle too, so what?!

Hope you all have a...

I hope you enjoyed and if you have a minute pray for our pup Calvin, he hurt his leg and can't walk on it.  We are taking him to the vet tomorrow, my guess is he will have to have surgery :( Poor baby.
