Yesterday I pulled out our lone Valentine decor at home. I quickly arranged a bouquet of heart roses. This simple craft is an oldie but goodie. Guess what, it’s not too late to make a bouquet for your love!
Cut felt into hearts. Glue heart ‘petals’ and ‘leaves’ to sticks and voila!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
As much as we’re loving winter and the quiet simplicity that it brings, we’re already considering spring and perhaps a flock of chickens too. Paper mache or the real thing. We’re undecided. What do you think? The paper versions are pretty darn adorable and require very little work.
We’re obviously about 2+ months away from digging in the garden soil but it’s not too soon to start preparing,right? How handsome are these forged iron tools?
If we can’t have garden flowers, we might as well have galvanized flowers!
There are galvanized roses for your sweetheart too. Valentine’s Day is just about 2 weeks away. Check out these pretty vintage-style cards…
We’ve put together a new window display featuring an antique oak bed, vintage chenille popcorn blanket, garden chandelier…
and a hand painted B&B sign.
Valentine’s Day falls over a long weekend this year. Come visit us in Cape May! Everything pictured in this post (and more!) is being added to our inventory at The West End Garage.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of helping to style a Valentine’s Day photoshoot. The shoot was geared for babies and families and general heartwarming love. Who can argue that?
The photographer behind this project is Mandy Keep – the same photographer who we worked with for our engagement shoot. Here are my valentines…
The entire shoot was for charity. Families could have mini-sessions done for a nominal price which was then donated 100% to Greenpeace.
Some Circa Dee treasures made their way into the set. One of my favorite furniture transformations was the houndstooth chest (which I’ve never actually let go of). It lent a cheerful, spring-like background to the photos.
Mandy did an excellent job capturing the LOVE for these families.
But this particular little model grabbed my heart!
Maybe I’m biased though. I’ve known him since he was born…
I am excited to work with Mandy on another family shoot for charity this spring. Easter is just around the corner…Come get your children’s pictures taken at Circa Dee Brick & Mortar on Saturday, March 9th. All proceeds will be donated to MS, a cause near and dear to our hearts.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
