So here is what has been on my mind the past few months....
Last fall I was thinking about the future of my blog when "Young House Love" up and left. I wasn't expecting that at all. It kinda put everything into perspective and I knew it was time for me to take a break. As you fellow bloggers know, blogging can be very time consuming! I started feeling like I needed to post something really great all the time and it just wasn't fun any more. I've also noticed that several of my favorite blogs are posting a lot less or even stopping all together. I wrote a post last year about the changes I've noticed in blogland. Has anyone else noticed the change or contemplated ending their blog? Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels like this.
As for the future of my blog .... I honestly don't know. Right now I'm staying but I can't promise that won't change. Today is the first time in a long time that I really felt like writing a post.
Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner I'm sharing a few ideas. I don't do a lot of decorating for Valentine's Day. Usually it's just my hall shelf and coffee bar that get changed around. As always, I try to use what I already have. I purchased 2 new items this year from the Target Dollar Spot and spent a whopping $2!
This little glass jar with cork lid was $1. It's perfect for storing cocoa "extras" like these cinnamon candies. I added another jar full of mini marshmallows and some fun paper straws from my hoard.
I just might have a paper straw obsession. : )
I filled some metal containers with hot cocoa mix and Valentine's Day themed napkins. I also like to keep a few mugs in a wire basket next to my Keurig.
Here is my hallway shelf all decorated for Valentine's Day .....
This wood LOVE sign is the other item I purchased from the Target Dollar Spot. I added some cute subway art and a few other accessories to my console table.
Well I guess that's it for today. Thanks so much for visiting! I love hearing from you! If you'd like to leave a comment just scroll down to the bottom of this post.
I've also added some new items to my Etsy shop. You can check that out here.
HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!
Linking up to these awesome parties ...
