Every day is Valentine’s day when you love and are loved
Love is patient,
love is kind and is not jealous;
does not act unbecomingly;
it does not seek its own,
is not provoked,
does not take into account a wrong suffered,
does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
Love never fails…But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
sending you much love,
Mantel 100% homemade with love.
(simple jars filled with faux snow, faux jars, coffee filter roses, heart wreath made out pages of a book and coloured with water colour, hanging book page mittens, stack of old books, dollar store shadow box with page book heart.

Can I just tell you how beautiful this looks? You got me with the beautiful decor and kept me hooked with the scripture throughout. Fabulous!
I don’t decorate for Valentine’s day, but you better believe I would copy this mantel to a T.

Beautiful post and decor. I love the way you integrated 1 Corinthians slowly instead of all at once. Pink and blue are my favorite combination for Valentine’s.
This is gorgeous! I love all of it!
What a lovely post. Each photo is so soft and cozy and all the better when combined with 1 Corinthians 13. Thanks for sharing your beautiful mantle and your faith. It was a pleasure visiting you tonight.

Beautiful decor, and Beautiful Sentiment 🙂 My hubby always says “Valentine’s Day is a commercialized holiday, why should it be any different than every other day because I love you all year around” Now some of it is being a smart aleck because he doesn’t want to do anything, but most of it really is true 🙂
Wow this mantle display is stunning. And I love even more that everything is handmade 🙂
Pretty Pink Cherub says
Hiya sweetie!! Just wanted to share with you that I did give your rose tutorial a try!! I got a little confused so I may have gone off the beating path a bit!! I chose to use tissue paper instead of coffee filters and glue instead of floral tape and though it did not come out quit like yours I love it ;O) Hope I did your idea justice!!! http://prettypinkcherub.blogspot.com/2011/01/tissue-paper-rose-and-glitter.html
I hope to make a full bouquet tomorrow for my mother’s upcoming birthday ;O) Many BIG hugs with lots of Thank you’s! Tammy

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage says
What a pretty mantel! The coffee filter roses are so pretty! I have yet to try my hand at them. When my children were young, I was always drawing and creating things for them too. We didn’t have a lot of money so I used my imagination to decorate our home for every special celebration that came along. It’s nice to see you doing this for your little ones too. I love the scriptures from 1Corinthians 13! Thank you for sharing.
Honey at 2805 says
Love your mantel and you macros. I just tried my hand at it for the first time and posted at Tracy’s. The scripture was used at my wedding.
Beautiful mantel! Love the candles out of the canning jars. Very sweet.

I officially know what I’m doing for my husband now for V-day.
We’ll be testing for pregnancy on that day, quicindently. It’s our first medicated cycle. You’ve inspired me to bring out all our wedding Mason jars we love, and do this! and to type out our wedding vows and to frame them. What a great reminder of God’s promise in marriage. LOVE IS PATIENT, love ENDURES. 🙂 thank you for the reminder. 🙂
That is so beautiful! How pretty and delicate! I love Valentine’s Day! Thank you for sharing this.
