  1. Love that your Valentine Mantel is so subtle and soft. The X & O combined with the red books and the felt garland are such a simple way to say Happy Valentines Day.
    Just lovely.
    Have a Wonderful Day,

  2. I could just ditto what Suzanne said above! It is a soft and simple look for the holiday. Beautiful. The X & 0 are perfect! (and I looooooove using books for decoration.)

  4. Years ago, I bought an ampersand (Thank you, Wheel of Fortune, for teaching me that word!) on a clearance whim. I just found it in a drawer the other day. Now I have an idea what to do with it! My girls will love your mantle!

  5. Simple and elegant! My kind of project. (:

  6. Sweet little garland…

  7. HI Melissa, love your project and your fireplace mantel. It is so wonderful. I like how you stacked your red books….I have a bunch of those and now I’m heading off somewhere in my house…to stack them! hahaha
    Have a blessed day!

  10. simple, lovely

    for the garland–glue! I’m allergic to sewing needles :-)

  11. This looks so fun and pretty! My 6 y.o. and I had so much fun making paper hearts this weekend; I think felt hearts might be a good next project for us. <3 Love your X & O, too!

    Gee whiz, I’ve never thought of using letters that way but the X and O are perfect and adorable with the red books! Inspired.

  17. I may never take this garland down, so sweet.

  18. The DIY felt hearts was so simple and so poetic. I love how you sewed them on the curved side of the hearts. Just a little turn makes a difference between something middle of the road to magical. Also, this is just the craft to make with children. Thanks for posting!

  19. First time visitor here- that is the sweetest garland ever! Following you now on Hellocotton :)

  20. Loved this! And was inspired to pull together some stuff from around the house to make a Valentine mantel of my own! (wish I had time to make the heart garland — so sweet!) Thanks for the inspiration! http://lesliemartinyoung.blogspot.com/2013/02/hello-also-i-love-you.html

  21. Seriously, Melissa. It’s hard to stalk your books without close-ups! ;-) I love to get book ideas from blogs, and you use them very nicely–but I want a close up of your stacks–please! Happy Valentine’s Day.

  22. Of course I love the mantel, but I REALLY love the wood paddles that I see making a sneak appearance in the background!! Would you mind sharing how you got them to hang crossed???

    Thanks again for the beautiful inspiration!

  24. Love your new site :)

  25. love the simplicity, the elegance and always loving books as art!!

  26. Love this elegant Valentine’s Day mantel. Such a sophisticated way to celebrate and incorporate a bit of love-day style. In the UK Valentine’s Day is seen as a bit tacky, but I think that’s because the supermarkets are full of plastic trinkets which are not cute.

  27. What great ideas for Valentine’s Day! Could resist posting on our blog: http://www.sweetpeas-inspired.com/blog

    Thanks for the inspiration!!
