Over the years, I’ve collected various heart ornaments and plates. I use the heart ornaments at Christmas and then save them for Valentine’s Day.

This past weekend I pulled out my Valentine’s decorations. I am always so tempted to move right from Christmas to Valentine’s decor, as our home always looks so bare after being spruced up for Christmas. But I do usually wait until mid-to-late January.
When I’m packing up my Christmas ornaments, I set aside my red mercury ornaments and my silver hearts — to use for Valentine’s Day.
I fill several apothecary jars with the red mercury ornaments and red heart ornaments.
And I display my silver heart ornaments in a glass bowl — along with some vintage glass garland.
Years ago, I started collecting antique postcards by holiday. I have some postcards that were sent in the 1900s. I like to display some of the Valentine postcards on my entry table.
You can never go wrong with fresh red tulips at Valentine’s. I tuck small vases of tulips in bookshelves and on tables with other Valentine’s decorations.
Tucked in our bookshelves are a few Valentine plates along with a few painted wood crafts from many years ago.
Have fun adding touches of Valentine’s in your home!
