thrifty outdoor Valentine decor

A few days after New Year’s I took down all of my outdoor Christmas lights and decor.  The house looked sad.  Luckily, with Valentine’s day around the corner it was a good excuse to add back some colour and cheer to the front stoop!

  1. I really like this. Shabby Chic is definitely a type of Feng Shui, giving a
    relaxed, soft and feminine feel. A very loving way
    of decorating making people want to come in and relax, that’s the reason it can also be known as the cottage feel.
