just maybe you're wondering about the snazzy title of this post?
For an early Valentines Day Celebration,
Mr. Ramblings and I went to see the Stylistics in concert Friday night.
These guys might be in their sixties,
but they've still got it going on... amazing vocals and smooth dance moves!
One of their many hit wonders,
"You'll Never Get To Heaven if You Break My Heart,"
has been running through my mind as I prepared this post... hence the title.
Hearts... Valentines... you get the picture, right? :)
Back in late November, my post, A Versatile Lantern For The Seasons,
featured the lantern below I found at Ollie's, dressed for Christmas...
As I was scoping out the Christmas ornaments during the annual
New Years Day Sale at Dillards, I ran across the pretty glass hearts, below.
They were originally $7.00, but at 75% off, only cost $1.75 each.
I purchased a few, with updating the lantern in mind for Valentines.
To complete the look,
I added a bag of crumpled brown paper package filler from Dollar Tree,
and a sprig of greenery from Michaels (half price).
Reused the bow from Christmas, just tucked the greenery above and below it.
On the foyer table, the lantern was paired with a sweet, small Waterford Vase
filled with Baby's Breath, and a cut-glass sphere.
Illuminated by the glow of a little lamp lighting...
A sneak peek of the ribbon I bought at the Salvage Sister's Show a couple of weekends ago,
inspiration for when it comes time to style the lantern for Easter/Spring, stay tuned...
But in the meantime,
I'll leave you with this little poem...
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
My life is blessed because you are here, that has to be said,
and I hope you all have a Happy Valentines, too!
