Hi, another week has come and gone. Before we know it, Valentine's Day will be upon us.

I haven't started decorating and my EI is still not approved.

Oh well, it's not in my hands. All I can do now is wait.

I do however want to share some very inspiring Valentine Mantels with you. 

Check it out. And enjoy!

  1. I love them all. We aren't very used to change decoration accordingly but I'm finding myself drawn to this more and more. The only drawback is that we don't have that much storage space for all those items afterwards.

    1. I don`t typically decorate for the seasons or holidays -other than Christmas but, I am also seeing the charm in it.
