Valentine Decor on the cheap: Part III (promise it's the last one)

Valentine Decor Part I is HERE
Valentine decor part II is HERE
but don't worry...
if you missed them, this post will still make sense.
The Last Crusade is a great stand-alone movie, even without watching Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I didn't make HUGE changes anywhere else, but the dining room did get a lil spruce up...

the pink tissue paper poms never left this room after E's first birthday last year. I love how Ali hung them from the ceiling in Anna's room, so they might move to the girls nursery, but-
for now, three of them are still hangin out in here
(there's one at the tip top of the hutch too)

printed another one of these from Becky's blog and stuck in a frame I already had. That stand that it's sitting on is from the thrift store- I think it was 1.49. I've had plans to hit it with some white spray paint ever since I bought it, but haven't quite gotten to it yet.
(and yes...Christmas balls. I just

The hubs gave me candies in this box for V-day several years ago.
The candies were gone instantly,
the box lives on.

and I know it's not red or pink OR white, but I found that cute lil blue pitcher at the thrift store 2 weeks ago and just added it to the cabinet. LOVE the little pop of color it adds. was 59 cents.

so I lied about only having one spot in my house with Christmas decor still remaining. I had to take Christmas balls out of these glass hurricanes so I could put in my red itsy-beadsies. Anyone else use these? They come in all colors and are light as air- picked these up at the hob lob for a couple bucks many years ago and have used them to add color to just about everything. I just keep them stored in quart sized Ziplocs.

and...I didn't clean the table off.
this is real life, real messes.

a closer look at the itsy-beadsies

Last Tuesday night while I was at the hob lob, I came across this paper in the clearance section. Flipped it over on the back to see how much...

and boom.
13 cent-a-roonies.

Don't know what I plan to do with it yet, but
it was 13 cents.

And there ya have it folks-
the entirety of my Valentine decor,
 brought to you in a 3-part mini-series.

Any of YOU throwing pink/red/white around in your house?
Any of YOU eat an entire box of candy in 5-minutes flat?
Any of YOU find some great deals lately at the thrift store or the hob lob?
(seriously, I'd love to hear)

I'm linking to these fabulous parties:

I love your crafts!
Okay so I'm new to your blog, (just found it) but i have a really random question for you... Can you tell me the brand & color name of your green wall paint in these photos? I LOVE it and have been looking for a good green to put in my house!
Thanks so much!
