Deck the Halls with Hearts So Jolly!

If you've been reading The Marmelade Gypsy for any length of time, you know I love holidays and I love decorating for holidays. When December's Santas come down, January's snow people return! And more than a few of them these days are carrying hearts!

Well, Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away, so I thought I'd share a few of the things already up. This beautiful stained glass heart from a good friend starts before Christmas and stays up rather a long time (and will, long past Valentine's day!)

A few flowers? Well, what would a day of hearts and flowers be without them?

And there must be a tree! This wee one benefitted from a few Christmas tree hearts and some cheery ladybugs.

I don't think I'm done yet!

(If you haven't visited Chopsticks and String to check out my take on Diane Keaton's new memoir, come on over!)

This was fun and inspirational to read. I really am going to try to make some progress on taking down Christmas today. I will try to get in the Valentine's mood.

The stained glass heart is realy gorgeous. I have no Valentine's Day decorations except for come candy hearts in a candy dish.

I love that stained glass heart! And your other decorations! I used to put up these pink heart-shaped lights in college. I was known by my friends as the lover of V-Day even though I was always single! And I even converted some of them into V-day lovers! I just think it's a wonderful holiday. :)

What beautiful decorations, Jeanie! Having snow people around is such a great idea!

I think it helps us get through the dreary winter months to have beautiful decorations up. I am sure your house would feel so inviting. I have the same gold heart hanging on my valentine tree.

The love heart stained glass is stunning. I just love coloured glass of any description.

Love them all, which is appropriate for hearts.

Love that stained glass heart! I'd probably leave it up year 'round if it were mine and just enjoy looking at it.

You have already been very busy. I never do a thing for Valentine's day, it just isn't something we do in the UK.

But I do have flowers from the garden, although they are coloured twigs and branches of flowering shrubs at the moment.

Re your question: a lurcher is a breed a bit like a greyhound, only smaller; a thin dog with a long face and long legs. Very short-haired.

Hi again Jeanie, I couldn't resist visiting both of your blogs, and with a name like Marmelade Gypsy who could? :)
LOVE your tree in this post. So pretty. And I love all the faces as I scrolled down and browsed through your other posts. Can't wait to see what you make with all those pink goodies.
Much love!

The heart basket is darling. The pink checks are so cute. The tree is very pretty too.

I "heart" your hearts!!! My snowpeople are out in full force along with my winter reindeer but I have not gotten the hearts out yet- you have inspired me to do so! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Oh - you've just jump-started my own creativity! I took down the decorations from my bare-branch tree I made at Christmas - I could turn it into something Valentine-ish. Well, I could if I had your energy and enthusiasm. Maybe it's a good thing to put on the list for next year. I can eat some Valentine chocolate while I think about it. ;)
