Valentines Decorations

By some miracle I got my valentines decorations up BEFORE valentines this year.  And... I made some new ones for this year. 

This Love sign I made last year and I still like it!

 This is my project for this year.  I already had the branch up holding Christmas snowflakes.  I thought it would be handy for year around decorations.  I was looking for glitter heart ornaments but never found any so I thought I would make my own.  I picked up some wooden hearts from Michaels for about $.10 each.  I also picked up some Martha Stewart glitter in a variety of colors.  I just glued and glittered lots of hearts then tied a ribbon to string.  The large hearts are a heavyweight cardboard that  I added some extra decoration to. 
 I like this big one but it was taking too long so I simplified the rest.
 This one is green and gold like my favorite sports team.
 I worked so hard only to get lazy on my last heart and didn't space it out correctly.  So Happy Valentine Day to you too!

Deal a Day Web Sites You Don't Want To Miss

There's a trend for these "deal a day web sites".  You have probably seen or used Groupon or Living Social.  But did you know that there are some great sites for your home?  Here are the ones that I check every day.

One Kings Lane

I got several Christmas gifts from this site and they were all great.  The only problem can be shipping times- order here if you are not in a hurry.  Prices are great but on the books- check amazon to make sure they don't have a sale.  The furniture and accessories can be expensive but they are incredibly nice brands.  I found some books, kids stuff, a computer case and some other treasures. 

The Foundary.  This is a newer site I found so I have not purchased anything yet.  They have really cool stuff and wonderful treasures for home and you!  Can't wait to find something here.

2M Collective is a version of 2 Modern.  They are a new deal site and they have not added a lot of items yet but this is one we need to keep an eye on.  The modern stuff on their web site is amazing so I am assuming the bargains will be as well.

Let me know what you think about these sites and if you do decide to join- please say that recommended you.  I would really appreciate it!
