Hello, everyone!
I hope you are having a great weekend!

Before Valentine's Day comes and goes, I would like to share with you the little bit of decor I added to the front porch.
This is my first time decorating it for Valentines, so I didn't do much, just some small pink and red touches.

On the bench I used the red burlap pillows I made for Christmas and made two new ones, one with an old rose fabric  I had forever and a small one with some little hearts.

On the table, I added a red place mat, my old lantern with some Valentines embellishments and a metal flower cart.

The little cart was part of an outdoor decor piece that broke a long time ago. I almost threw it away several times, 
but now I am glad I kept it.
It didn't look very good, so I sprayed painted in white and then, using a little brush and craft paint, 
I painted the small flowers in red and pink.

On the door, the wreath I showed you all last week and next to it, I added my stand with a small heart tree I made.

Using thick scrapbook paper, ribbon and twine, I made several different hearts and used some tiny pink clothes pins to keep them from flying away. :)

Underneath, I added some felt hearts and the tiny pillow I made last month.

Because I used everything I already had, I only spent
 $5.00 to decorate the porch for Valentines.

I am already planning and working on my Spring porch.
Maybe that will make the cold weather go away!
I will see you here tomorrow for another get together at Tuesdays at Our Home and some great features from last week's party.

Until then!
