A Thrifted Valentines Birthday

In our house I get a double whammy on holiday décor with Valentines Day… Abby’s birthday is on the 15th! So in our house, hearts also mean birthday. I really, really, really tried to birth her on Valentines Day, (which my sister accidentally did 🙁 soooo not fair!!! ), but I was only 2 hours late and I always tell her that she is my little valentine baby!

I am LOVING this delicate silver / pearl princess crown that Jen and I found for .99

Of course I have my iron tree that I decorate for all occasions.   It was so much fun to listen to all the teen-age girls this year tell Abby how cool it was that her mom does all this artsy stuff for her.  I was even tempted to walk in the room and pat myself on the back … ha

They loved it and to hear her friends describe what I always do with the tree for numerous occasions, assured to me that it is memorable, it makes a difference and they love it.  As much as they are aloof, they LOVE the attention!!!!!!!!!!!

If you can’t find an iron tree (believe me, I have looked for years to offer to sell one to my readers … still looking) I used a pink or white Christmas tree before that.   Those 2 colors pretty much go with all occasions but Halloween and Thanksgiving.
