Valentines day is fast approaching, and you might say I  have a limited budget!  So how can I decorate?  I thought it was about time to show you my decorations, and what I've done on a very limited budget.  

If you follow this blog on a regular basis, then you know that I use thrift stores and garage sale finds along with clearance sale items to add decor to my home.  I also reuse items from year to year, but just in a different arrangement.  Like the fashions experts tell you.... you can use the same basic item, but by adding additional items you can change the "outfit" look entirely.   That's what I've done this year, and by adding only two "new" thrift store finds I've achieved an entirely new look.  

Here's what I came up with this year.

This display in our dinning room area sits on top of the cedar cabinet that my husband built for me.

Scrabble tiles spell out "Love"

Silk rose petals placed in an apothecary jar add a touch of color along with two small red candles.  The vase with the little red hearts is my "new" 99 cent find this year.  I just placed a faux green plant I already had inside it.

A lamp bought at an after Christmas clearance sale and thrift store plate are placed on the left side of the vignette.

Moving on to the kitchen...

a LOVE sign
(my "new" $1.99 thrift store find for this year) sit on top of our refrigerator among thrift store finds from previous years.
