I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse that was built in the middle 70's, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before it closed in November of 2018 and have been a nurse for almost 41 years, with most of that time being full time!!! I recently had my knee replacement surgery done after putting it off for 6 years... I am NOW officially retired!!!!!

Red and Gold Valentine's Tree in the Living Room 2018


In this post, I will be sharing my Red and Gold Valentine's Tree in the Living Room.....

I have decorated the Living Room for Valentine's using a red and gold color theme......

After I stripped the Tree from all the Christmas decorations except for the lights, I then re-decorated it for Valentine's........

I do not say Valentine's Day because I do keep these decorations up until the end of February because this month is deemed American Heart Month by the American Heart Association.....

This is what the Tree looks like all decked out for Heart Month.....
I topped the Tree off with a bow made from red velvet ribbon and a few heart picks.....
I used a pearl like garland with hearts embossed on it.....
I then added a heart garland.......
And a few vintage styled hearts, some that I made.....
Next came the red hearts and gold balls with red hearts on them.....
 I then added Gold cherubs that to me, look like cupids.....
Next were a few more red hearts and a few gold hearts......
I then added red and gold rose ornaments bought a few years ago at Big Lot's.......
I then wrapped the Tree with red wired heart garland......
Here are a few closeups.......
I left the Tree on the platform where I had had my Christmas village set up ....

I decided to cover it using a vintage red rose tablecloth that I have had for years......
I thought it would be perfect for Valenitne's......
I decorated the bottom of the Tree on the covered platform with more Valentine goodies......
A crystal vase and a vintage bowl and pitcher on each side of the platform, each hold an arrangement of red velvet roses and gold leaves..........
On the left side.....
I realize now that the battery pack of a light set that I have woven through out the display on the platform can be seen in this photo.......
There are several Bearington Bear in Valentine garb......

This guy carries a heart that says "Thief of Hearts".......
This is one of the heart candy boxes that I embellished......
This little guy is wearing a squirrel outfit and is carrying a hear that says "Nuts about You"
2 baby Bears, Cutie and "Love Bug", sit together on the bench....
A dapper gentleman called"Lover Boy" sits across from the Bear in the squirrel costume.......
Another heart shaped candy box that I embellished......
The other floral arrangement on the right side of the platform.....
And one more box that I embellished......
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Red and Gold Valentine's Tree in the Living Room.......

In my next post, I will be sharing 2 more Valentine Trees in the Living Room and a few Valentine's vignettes.......
 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......
