Valentine's Decor

I have never really been a holiday decorator, except for Christmas, but I think that since I finally have my own house I might become one. I have had WAY too much fun decorating for Valentine's Day :) Granted my house isn't really that big and there aren't that many places to decorate but I tried :)

I made this table runner and am SO happy with the way it turned out. I used this awesome tutorial. I was ridiculously nervous about making it, especially since it involves quilting and binding, but I found that I really enjoyed doing it and I love it so much I want to make a million more...

With the scraps from the fabric I used for the table runners I made the garland using this tutorial, but I attached my hearts side to side instead of the way she did it.

I made a runner for my bookshelf too.

One day I went over to my sister-in-law Tara's house and she was making a cute picture to frame and let me make one too, I love it :)

I put it on my entry table with some candles that I wrapped with different ribbons.

Sorry if you didn't want to my decorations, they just make me happy so I wanted to share :)

Looks good! It makes me want to make decorations too. What do you have planned for St. Patrick's Day? :)

I think we should live together again.

Also I think it's funny that you wouldn't consider yourself a holiday decorator. I see you doing a post just like this in green about a month from now. Yes? I hope so. :D
