While I was checking out at target on monday (let's be real, I'm a target addict and have been there twice this week...and it's wednesday), I noticed that the lady in front of me had the CUTEST hearted light strand.
perfect for valentine's day!
I couldn't help myself--I got straight out of line to find them.
and, with my target obsession, I knew from the packaging that it was from the target dollar section.
I try to only look at that section like once a week, because somehow I end up with 20 things in my basket that I NEED--like can't-live-without-need. HA
and of course, this time was no different!
I had to search everywhere for the light strand because the basket was empty.
but I finally found one, buried in another basket. YES
and I also found a few other keepers (of course ha).
so I got home and started trying some of the new decorations out--just to get an idea of where I wanted to put them before I started decorating in a couple of weeks.
but once I started trying everything out, I was toast.
IT WAS TIME TO DECORATE.
I couldn't help myself.
valentine's decorations are my VERY favorite.
because you can really make everything your own--PLUS, it's an excuse to decorate my home with hearts and love and I LOVE THAT.
I anxiously waited at least 2 days to share some of these decorations, so you wouldn't totally judge me for decorating so early.
but I guess it's not really that early.
it is only 5 weeks away...right? ha!
but I want to share these with you, so you can score some of the deals I did!
^small milk bottles--in the target DOLLAR section! I got four and am going back today for like 6 more. I want to have a plethora--perfect for ANY holiday or event! I spruced mine up this holiday by adding a jute twine bow. and all of the flowers in the little milk bottles are from the dollar store. I just cut them apart with wire cutters.
the mailbox was a find from last year at hobby lobby for $2. I love sticking notes in there for taylor throughout the season and putting up the little "you've got mail" flag!
free printables from online.
(if you want links for any of the printables, let me know. but you can probably find most on pinterest)
I just had them printed at walmart!
and if you need frames, you can always find good frames at the dollar store!
heart wreath: target dollar section.

just found them there yesterday, so hurry and get yours!

LOVING this banner.

(story to come about those tomorrow)
is anyone judging me for decorating this early?
taylor came home from work while I was in the middle of decorating and he said, "already, kells??"
HA, and then he looked around and said, "soooo...how bad did target get you this time?"
you know me so well, tay. so well. HA
taylor said to me today, "hey, I need to go to hobby lobby tonight. want to come?"
"uhhh that is a dangerous place to take me."
"good point. what was I thinking?"
HA so maybeeee there might be a little more decorations after tonight ;)
I just looooove valentine's day.
for the pure reason of seeing love everywhere.
and because our valentine's traditions are some of my favorite ever!
PLUS, I've got this cute valentine for like ever.
soooo...go stalk the target dollar section, NOW!
