Wasn't it just Christmas!?
...ya, that's what I thought.
Oh well, guess you can't fight...
"That lovin' feeeeelin'... Woahh, that looovin' feelin'"
Okay...I've had a couple of emails asking about Valentines decorating ideas and vinyl and such, so here's MY take on this LOVE-ly holiday :)
Can you tell Valentines is one of my most favorites!?
This year I wanted to do a little project that was more... personal, in our decor.
Cason and I were told a few weeks back by
my friend Tauni someone (eehem) that we remind her of a giddy, lovesick, high school couple. LOL.
At first I was like... "WHAT? No way!"
Then I assessed the situation:
* Matching cell phone covers, in different colors, with pictures of
* Giggling, play-hitting, & pretending to be mad at each other
Okay, okay...so what!?
Maybe we act like we're still dating, sometimes... lol
I guess this explains my Valentines Subway art, this year.
We both love the song by Katy Perry... "Not like the Movies"
It's got amazing lyrics!
The kind that give you chills, and make you start envisioning a full blown music video of you and your past boyfriends in your head, with your hubby as the "knight in shinning armor, with a great tan, and fabulous hair," at the end...
You don't "make up" music videos in your head to songs you love?
It's a great song. I've attached it, so you can all listen, if you want.
So ya, it's definitely what inspired my choice of words, this Valentines Day :)
I also added a few other elements that I thought would be fun to incorporate.
The #14 on this cute pink plate, I found at Tai Pan, for only $2.97.
Some fun pink, white, and red candy, in these apothecary jars.
Nothin' really new, I know, but I just love all the color that candy, in a glass jar, can bring!
On the top shelf I put a birdcage, that I found from the DI for $1.00
and some of my Rose Ball Forms, from last year.
I also thought it would be fun to mix in that "nature/bird" feel this year.
I love the phrase "love birds" and wanted to do something fun to show that off :)
So I did this vinyl on my little chippy window, I have hanging up, and used some topiaries on each side.
Pretty simple and PINK (as Cason put it) this year. ha!
I love it! :)
Oh! Also, did you read Jen's post on HER
HUGE Valentines subway art!?
Well, it was a good one, and I helped her do the vinyl for it!
The whole time while we were crafting together, all I could think of
was that old cartoon, Captain Planet, and the theme song... remember?
"When YOUR powers combine... WE ARE!....."
Please tell me someone remembers that show. ha!
K, anyway... Look how awesome HER subway art turned out!
La-la-la LOVE it!
Can you feel all the love goin' on around here!?
Of course, all of these vinyl decals will be on my Wonderfully Wordy site, to purchase.
