Valentines at Alderberry Hill

The Valentine decorations are coming together. I'm adding in things here and there as I make them.

Here are a few pics from around the house.


I don't have a mantle, and oh how I long for one.
But, I do have a shelf!!


Here is the link to the first printable & the middle printable. The Home Sweet Home is not one of my printables, I forget where I got this last year.

Closeups of the banner made with scrapbooking paper & rubber stamps.









Don't forget to enter my Ramsign Giveaway here!
