Valentine Decor in the Entry

The entry hadn't had a face lift in quite a while,  so after Christmas I pretty much cleared everything out and started new
Hershel begged to stay in the entry but he needed to have a few Valentine touches to fit in.     So,    I tied a Valentine banner to his antlers and put a pretty flower garland around his neck and let him!

The only other thing we kept in the entry was the harp table,  but it got moved to a different wall.    

It's a little early for me to get out the Valentine decor,  but I didn't want to do anymore winter vignette's.    

I wanted to show you a close up of the Valentine crown that I made several years ago from a Dollar Tree birthday party crown.

I married a headboard to two tea cup shelving units to make a new piece for the entry....

On the left is the cupboard that was there before.......................................on the right is the new arrangement.
Left is before........................................................................................Right is after

I took a few close up shots of some of the things I filled the shelves with......................


Here is a close up of the 3D vintage Valentine that I have displayed next to the harp table.....

I had to take them to the kitchen to get enough light to get a good!

This is the other wall in the entry.
 I just put some stuff on the wall to fill in the space until I get the piece out of storage that is going there.

I'm going to do a post later and give the details on the new Valentine wreath that I back soon!

  9. Penny,
    There is so much about this that I just adore!! The tea cup racks together with the head board on top is spectacular!! I will be painting my tea cup rack in the guest room white in the Spring, along with some other things. Your vintage Valentine's are beautiful!! And I love the curtains hanging on each side of the mirror.

  10. Penny,
    Wow, I don't know where to start! I decorate a bit for Valentine's Day but your decorating really puts me to shame!!! I love the headboard and everything that you have perfectly placed in your entry way. I'm going to leave now and totally rethink my Valentine's Day decorating, LOL! So much inspiration here!
