Valentine Mosaics

This Thursday is Valentine’s Day. For mosaic Monday I’m featuring a few pieces of décor I’ve purchased in the past for this day. Last year after Valentine’s day I added some pieces that I was able to pick up at Hobby Lobby for 90% off the original price.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”

I prefer the Valentine’s Day Cards from the 50’s or antique cards.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

Time will tell if we will have some company to sit around the Valentine Day table for a meal.

And here’s our favorite little Valentine enjoying her M & M treats for being a big girl.

Do you make plans for Valentine’s Day or do you just let it slide by?

Linking up with Angie for Mosaic Monday. Thanks for being a great hostess for this meme, Angie!

  1. Usually we just ignore Valentine’s Day. But this year, I am on the committee to plan and execute the Valentine’s party on the 15th for younger couples at church.

  2. Your house looks very festive for Valentine’s Day, Ellen! You little sweetie will make it an extra special day for you as all children love to make red heart valentines with a grandmother. I put a red Valentine wreath on my door and a few little decorations inside. My hubby usually surprises me with roses or candy every year–the older I get the more I want the candy!

  3. Your little Valentine is adorable, she has a sweet face. I love how you have decorated for Valentine’s Day. Apart from buying cards for each other, I don’t have any decorations. Hopefully this post will inspire me. Enjoy your week Ellen and Happy Valentine’s Day 🙂

  4. Ellen – following Christmas, I always feel the house is naked, so this year I have done a little more with a red/Valentine’s theme. As for the day itself, I usually like to surprise my hubby with something – last year it was Nutella pancakes with strawberries, in bed! This year I am putting pink post-it notes on his bathroom mirror in the shape of a heart – each one will have something about him that I love. Your decorations are tasteful and fun – I like how the red print plates fit right into the theme! Thanks for spreading some love to Mosaic Monday this week!

  5. Good planning on your part, buying some clearance items post-holiday. Everything looks special. And your little Valentine is oh-so-cute!

    We do some small scale celebrating for Valentine’s Day. Treats for the children/grandchildren . . . usually dinner our for Ron and me, although we have also stayed in some years.

  6. I like to do a little bit for Valentine’s Day. This year my parents are coming for a visit, and my husband has to travel that day and won’t be home until late. So perhaps we’ll celebrate another time. I plan to make a treat for the grands and drop it by sometime this week.
    Your little Valentine is the sweetest of all you’ve shown.

  7. Your Valentine decorations and vintage cards are just lovely Ellen!!! Oh, and your wee love is the best – sounds like the big girl training is going well. We don’t usually do much for Valentines Day but I hope I can bake some sugar cookies this week with my little love. We have a lady’s breakfast planned for Saturday morning at our church so that will be a treat as well! Have a wonderful week!

  8. Ellen, I love your Valentine’s decorations! We usually go out to eat on the day or the day before. This year we are staying in. I’m making appetizers and a chocolate tart fellow blogger Jodi made. It will be a quiet relaxing night. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!😊❤️

  9. We do a little something for ‘the littles’ (now our great-grandboys) but it has never been a big celebration for us (on the theory that showing love is an every-day event). I do enjoy looking at your decorations, especially the antique cards (strangely enough, some of which remind me of my antique childhood!).

  10. I like your plates and your display for Valentine’s Day. I too have heart decorations hanging here and there that I keep out all the year. They have been given to us by loving family members. My dear husband and I have always exchanged cards on this day. We are grateful for each moment we have together over what seems like a lifetime having met when I was sixteen and he was nineteen. It’s an opportunity to express our love for one another with handwritten words, although we also try to do so each and every day in different ways. An important scripture, Ellen.
