Valentine Dining Room Decor , Pocket Pillow, and Snow

We don't get  a lot of  snow here in Eastern New Mexico,   but yesterday we got over 8 inches of much needed moisture.......    

I used my " snow day"  to create a Valentine vignette in the corner of our family dining room and make a pocket pillow to put on a deconstructed sofa

I started my Valentine corner by placing a Boston Terrier holding a sweet Valentine sign on the side table..... 

Then,   I added a wooden sign board with a Cupids Sweet Heart Cafe print on it 

To complete my vignette,   I created a floral design.       I tucked paper print ice cream cone flower bouquets to add a touch of Valentine decor to my creation.

I added a few more touches of Valentine decor to the corner.....

I clipped a February calendar to the wire frame....

I also made a Boston Terrier  Valentine to glue onto the calendar.

Now to take a look at the pocket pillow... 

It was a super easy project.....I just tacked a square doily to my pillow.....

Then I filled my pocket with a couple of sweet Valentines....

If you look out the window,   you will see that the ground is white with snow....

This is a photo of the back yard that I took on the sunroom porch.....

And here is how the front porch looked.....

I can't wait for Spring to arrive and be able to enjoy the porch again!!!
