    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,

    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.)

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.
