    Erin, all of your decorations look incredible. Especially the mantle, love all the little pieces and parts you put together to make one dazzling art piece. We don’t have Fred Meyer stores here, I am so bummed, I bet it would be one of my favorite shops. Next time I’m up North I’m definitely going to look for one.

      Thanks, Nikki! The mantel was fun to put together. I start there and then work my way around the house 🙂 Do you have a Kroger near you? That’s the parent store.

      You’re too sweet, Michelle! Valentine’s Day is a fun one to decorate for…especially if you don’t go overboard 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

      Hi Wendy, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek 🙂 I love the ladder for exactly that reason! It’s great for hanging seasonal towels.

      Yes, Fred Meyer is a great place to get everything you need and more! They had a great collection of mugs and glasses that are perfect for Valentine’s Day 🙂

    Super sweet and it is nice to have some cheerful decor during what can be dreary days! I’d have to pass on any edible decor though since it might not last!

    Your decorations feel so fresh and pretty without being too Valentine’s Day cutesy. I especially love the look you created for the mantel. So many of these items are great for spring too!
