All You Need Is Love

My mom and I were recently having a conversation about success and I said "How do you measure a successful life anyways" and my mom in all her 65 years of wisdom said "That's As long as you give love and get love you are a success."  And man is she right!  And there is no better time to remember that than the month of love, February.  So although I am not doing much Valentine's decorating that doesn't mean I am a love Grinch and that doesn't mean that I don't love all the wonderful Valentine's ideas out there.  So although The Love Jar is all my house will see this love season I wanted to share some great ideas to fill your homes and tummies...

I love the idea of thinking outside the box (or heart in this case) and using non-traditional color schemes when decorating for the holidays.  Here is the link for step-by-step directions for folding your own origami hearts.

I just LOVE these yarn letters from My Sister's Suitcase.  They may just make me go back on my "no more Valentine's project" rule! has a great series of Valentine's art.  I just love all the sayings!  You could easily DIY cards or art just like these...

And this idea, vase within a vase, is just so darn clever.  Darn you Martha!
