Since January, I have really be focusing on cleaning and organizing as most of you already know. So, I have undecorated areas in my home right now. How weird is that! I took the Christmas stuff down and enjoyed the minimalistic look. And then I just forgot about it.
Since my attention has been on other areas, I realized I am actually stumped at what I want to put on my empty shelves! That never happens to me! I am usually changing out the décor on my shelves every month or so. That is the fun part about thrifting and using those new finds to create a new look in my home.
Oh wait! I haven’t been thrifting! I have picked up some after Christmas clearance things but, that has been it! I haven’t been to any thrift stores in 2012! Whoa! With all the organizing and purging going on here the last thing I wanted to do is to bring more stuff into the house to deal with!
So, I decided to at least add some items to my shelf in the dining room that I have on hand. Adding a little pink gives it a bit of a Valentine feel.
I think one of the really fun things with Valentine’s Day is it gives you an excuse to add a little girly to your décor. So, with a grand total of $3.00 spent at the Dollar Tree, I gave it a little Valentine update.
A little pink tucked here and there.
A few hearts here and there.
The two round diamond cut mercury glass candle holders are from CTS, clearanced to .50 cents each after Christmas. The deep wine and one off white flower heads were clearanced for .25 cents each at a local hardware store (they have clips on the backs of them). The other 2 mercury glass pieces were clearanced at the Home Goods store. And the large glass candle holder was clearanced from TJM. The ribbon, small pink roses and plastic pink hearts all from The Dollar Tree.
Just some soft sweet touches.
All the candles are from after Christmas clearance sales as well.
I hope everyone has a sweet Valentine’s Day!
I will probably leave this shelf as it is for awhile. Just take out the red and pink and add a little green for next month’s St. Paddy’s day. Right now for me, it’s about staying on track and keeping the rest of my life simple.
