There are a number of crafty blogs that I'm addicted to looking at each day and a number of them were really inspiring. I used a lot of those ideas and incorporated them as my own. I also used objects from around my house. Here's a little look at what I did:

This awesome canvas art inspired me to do this:
I already had these Ikea frames which I had painted a bright turquoise with craft store acrylic paint - I've just been rotating out different pictures for holidays, etc.! SO EASY!
Here's another shot of this wall:
I have the super cute photo calendar displayed in my calendar holder and I have Dollar Store pink heart doilies up all over the house!
I literally scotch taped these up to doors, kitchen cabinets and the wall.... easy and cheap!
I also did some decorating on my mantle:
Mantles are TOUGH! Especially this one because it's 'triangular' shaped... I am never super happy with what I put there but this time around I think it looks pretty cute.

Some cute family photos and an old Valentine decoration hung on a 'display' item - these were probably found at Ross or TJMaxx or Tuesday Morning... I think the frames are both Crate & Barrel
Candy in mercury glass apothecary jars... lollipops and conversation hearts (leftover from my Valentine's wreath in the previous tutorial!) The apothecary jars are Pottery Barn from a few years ago.
A number of 'mantle displays' from the blog: The Stories of A to Z inspired my design.
Altogether? Pretty cute and festive for the holiday - now time to plan for St. Patrick's Day!!!
