Valentine's Day Decor & Gift Idea

Hello friends! I find that I always begin to crave more color at this time of year so it's fun to add some pops of red to our home the week or so leading up to Valentine's Day. I thought I'd share a few pictures of that with you today.

I added a sink skirt made from a tablecloth along with a banner from Target (last year). The little red house above the coffee mug rack is from Target this year. They always have such cute Valentine's Day decor! I have collected most of this stuff over the years and now I have quite a collection of red and white decor. I limit myself to just one bin for the smaller holidays like Valentine's Day.

When I walked into Whole Foods the other day, I was greeted with a display of spring flowers that made me smile. The temperature was in the teens that day so I had to add a small bouquet to my cart.

We switched our dining room and living rooms (again) for the colder months. I like having more room for our dining area in the colder months when we can't eat outside. Another winter project was painting the fireplace green (Calke green by Farrow and Ball). I'm loving it and I can feel my style evolving a little bit. I'll share about that soon.

I even added a few Valentine's Day touches in our bathroom this year. I found the heart hand towels at HomeGoods.

I worked with Walgreens on some Valentine's Day content this year and I love how it came out! This isn't sponsored for the blog at all, but I thought I'd share the idea here because I think personalized gifts are so much more meaningful and maybe you are looking for some ideas. I created a board print of a recent picture of Billy and me and a card with Dax on it. These items are available for same day pickup too and you can order them here.

We actually don't have any plans for Valentine's Day this year. We will most likely enjoy a nice dinner at home. We developed a tradition of having Rachael Ray's Venetian Shrimp and Scallops each year and we'll probably stick with that. It's so good! How about you? Happy Valentine's Day!

Christmas at the Cabin 2021

Hello friends! Today I thought I'd share a few pictures of the cabin decorated for Christmas. We have spent the last several Christmases here and I was beginning to lose hope that we would be able to this year. Our oldest son is currently serving in the Army National Guard and I wasn't sure if he could be at the cabin for the holiday. Currently, it looks like he will be able to make a quick trip up to the cabin but I am trying not to set my hopes to high in case it turns out he can't. If not, we will celebrate the holiday at our home in NJ. The main thing is that we are able to be together if at all possible.

We had our first snowfall just after Thanksgiving and I was so happy to spend a weekend decorating the cabin in a winter wonderland.

This is our first winter with the new kitchen island. I love having all this space for food prep! What a difference this has made in how the cabin functions for our family.

I added a small tree next to the kitchen fireplace with some cabin themed ornaments. Target had some adorable thermos ornaments in addition to metal cabins and lanterns. I even found a scrabble style ornament which represents playing board games at the cabin. So fun to add these to our collection!

Every year I hang the same vintage sled over our kitchen island and decorate it in a new way. This year it has a paper village on it. I'm loving the charm this little village adds to our kitchen and I think it's fun that its will be flying over our island as we make memories all season long.

I wanted this room to have a nostalgic feel to it this year and the Emmie tree skirt from VHC Brands lends that heirloom feel I was going for. The Joy and Peace Pillows on the window seat and the Christmas is Love with all the Trimmings pillow on the bed are also from VHC Brands this year.
