Beware of the Love Bug Hutch & Buffet

phonegirlFebruary 6, 2014

I'm almost done with my Valentine decor. Amazing
how much I have now that I'm not decorating at the
office. I haven't been changing out the inside of
this cabinet but still like to help it blend with the rest
of the DR so added a few valentine things.

Photobucket is not playing well with others tonight
so I might had to do several posts to share all.hmmm
I left the snowflakes on this cabinet since I used my
Johnson Brothers Friendly Village on the lg cabinet.

I painted several of these Love Bugs in two sizes.

Here's the buffet all decorated for VDay.

Hope this will help brighten some of these cold days we
are having.

Stay warm and safe. Punk

Punk, Everything is so bright and cheerful. That is just what we need on these seemingly never ending winter days!.
The love bugs are just adorable did you paint them recently?
I love the foil trees and wreaths. In fact I love it all
I'm smilin!!!

Darling, darling darling. (Your china closet is to die for, by the way.)

The love bugs are adorable. I like the bright colors on the XoXo and Be Mine signs.

Where'd you find the heart-shaped plates. Usually those kind of plates are smaller. I like the bigger size.

Nice job all around. Cheerful.

Your China Cabinet is looking real 'Spiffy'....and
I'm feeling 'The Love' !! XOXOXO
I agree those Love Bugs are adorable..
It's a treat to see bright and cheery decorations way after Christmas...
Sure helps get over the long Winter Blues.
I like the two signs too, and was also going to ask if you painted
them. I like all the Cute Valentine Couples...all 'Sharing The Love'. ! Lol
Like OA asked, where did you get the large V Plates ?
They're nice displayed and I can see them in a table setting too.
Thanks again Punk..for being part of 'The Gang'..who keep us going here.
I always enjoy what you do.

Nana, DD bought the pattern for the Love Bugs years ago.
She's had one in her BedR for years. I already had these
Love Bugs painted to give for Valentine gifts from before.
I had only finished adding wire to the large one, small ones
still need the hearts wired. So I placed the hearts randomly
on the lg china hutch.

OA, glad you like the china cabinet. I have the matching
buffet and tea cart to this one. Kinda sad but the tea cart
is hanging out in the garage at this point. We bought the
set of 3 for $300 and refinished them. They are Romweber.

DD brought me all of my Valentine plates I own. The name
on the back is Fresh Decor. Hope this helps.

Jane, I didn't paint the signs. DD gave them to me. Since
you asked about the plates also, I did a search and it looks
like they may have come from Safeway. If not my guess
would be she found them at Target, JoAnns Fabrics or

DD's such a great clearance shopper. She brought me
purple snowflake plates and a couple of polka dot sets that
will be fun to share sometime soon I hope.

Thanks for all the sweet comments ladies. Punk

Jeanne, I always have fun while decorating. Valentine's
Day isn't just about roses in my world. Too many fun things
that want to come out and play! I thought I'd shared my
'Love Bugs' before on Holidays but maybe not.

Sooo happy you've come here to post again. May all
this decor help brighten your days while recovering.
We miss you so much. Hope your feeling better every
day. Thanks for all your sweet comments.
