Mudroom is feeling festive! We are all hearts at our house and it’s adding extra cheer around here which was much needed after January. Why is January such a LONG month!? I don’t even have weather issues to complain about like a lot of you do, but man.. that month drags doesn’t it!? I always try to organize my way out any and all January funks. Apparently Valentine heart decor helps too. :)
If you’ve been with me a while you might remember our February tradition I started when my kids were little of writing little family love notes to each other in February. We each write things we love about each other on hearts throughout the month. (You can read more about how we do this and see some examples of what we write to each other in this post.) I found these fun hanging heart banners and they were perfect to hang on our mudroom lockers! So cute and easy. I’m thinking we’ll write our little love notes to each other on these paper hearts this year. :) If you don’t have mudroom locker doors this would be fun to do on bedroom doors too!
I added a few Christmas pillows that also work for Valentine’s Day on my little bench…
and picked up this cute Love rug on-line.
I’ve had these tri-colored hanging baskets for a while and am happy to finally have them displayed in their new home! Aren’t they fun!? It makes my day when I find organizing solutions that double as decor. These are perfect for organizing loose papers and books for the kids but I already have wall baskets for that in my office so I’m still deciding how best to use these. Rest assured I will come up with something! ;)
Just what I needed on in that little wall space by the dutch door. Sidenote if you’re new here.. I always get asked what the small door to the right of the baskets is for and I call that my hobbit door! It’s a small closet under our stairs that I use for storage. Mostly luggage and some pool stuff. :)
Feeling the love around here. I had to snap a pic with my cute 4th grader because he just got braces! Blue bands this time around. His smile makes me smile. :)
Wearing this cute pink sweater I found on Amazon for the 2nd time this week. I LOVE the sleeves! I don’t usually wear a lot of pink but it’s making me happy this month (and is a fun reminder that Spring is coming!) so I’m sticking with it.
Also here is a closer look at the pink puff sleeve sweater I was wearing in my last post. February Favorites!
Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I’m so happy I decided to throw a few things together. It’s hard to not be happy in a house filled with pink and red hearts. :) I can’t wait to see what my kids write to each other on their hearts this month. I don’t know that we’ll ever top the love note Kole wrote to himself 4 years ago..
Ha! Don’t ever say my kids don’t have healthy self-esteems. Clearly traditions like this one are working. ;)
