So here, at last, is the Valentine's Day mantel in all it glory. I added one little thing to it - a printable I found somewhere a year ago (if you recognize it, please tell me so that I can credit it properly). I popped it into a pink frame and propped it in its place by the antique love potion bottle. I apologize for the dark and fuzzy photography, but I guarantee that if you take the time to read it, it will make you smile.
And so - Voila! (Sidenote: I hate it when I read someone's blog and s/he types 'WAH-LA!' Ack! It's not even a correct pronunciation; the French say the 'v'. Believe me, given the opportunity, I would drive most people insane with my persnickety grammar.)
Back to my point - Voila! The mantel! I know it's cutesy and inelegant, but most of Valentine's Day is, too. I don't care. I like cutesy once in a while. It's good for the heart. The whole thing is kind of a big smile with rosy eyes and a red heart nose, dontcha think? (And pointy teeth) Yup. Cute and inelegant. Love it.
So go be the bubbles to your Sweetheart's bath!
