A Few Things- Love Hangover...Letting the love linger?

Opposites attract...2 of our (5) Valentines with two different feelings about the day after Valentine's Day.  Are you "nostalgic" or "good riddance"?

Today is such a cool day!  It's Presidents Day, the day after Valentine's Day, and Grammy Monday. So what that really means is...sales, clean up time and snuggling on the couch watching the music industry's big night with a warm bowl of popcorn and rose with our men.

As much as we LOVE a good holiday there is just something really uplifting about the day after.  It really feels like another fresh start.  Cleaning up the decorations and tornado of fun the kids had, putting the food away in our new favorite glass containers really helps us move on and forward with a pep in our step.  But as much as the clean slate is fun we always let a few things linger a day longer to remind ourselves of the fun day we had. (and its pretty...!)

I let the days Valentines hang on the wall for a day or 2 after to let the loving feeling linger a bit or until they run by and rip them down.

When the kids go to sleep it's fun to enjoy the rearranged table setting for something a little more romantic for the man of the hour complete with half eaten Vegan Treats Chocolates!

Speaking of Valentines day...this sweet little heart "neon" light from Oh Joy for Target has us all kinds of giddy.  If you have been following us for a while you know we have a love affair for neon signs...no matter what it is we feel like we need it on every wall in the houses.

Blank wall?...Hang a piece of neon...voila!

Grabbed this one after stalking each store for weeks and its just so sweet hanging on a blank bedroom wall!  Then I saw this picture and now I need to get another one to recreate this gorgeous gallery wall.

Oh Oh Joy...you had us at neon hearts and bright gallery walls with brass accents!

These new animal planters at West Elm are making the argument for more house plants a winning one.  If you are like us and have a tough time with keeping your green thumb from turning black you can fill them other things too!  Throw your left over V day chocolates in there, or place next to your bedside and put in the sparkly stuff you got or your favorite crystals...

After the plants are in plant heaven throw in some crystals, pens, make them catch-alls, makeup...its endless.  They are too cute not to stash all around the house.  Plus they will elevate your shelf-ie.

So how ever you celebrate the end of the big V day do it with love and a make a clean slate.  Who says New Years day is the only day to start fresh?

Letting the love linger or no?
