Valentines Day Mantle

After Christmas I normally just put my everyday decorations back on my mantle, however this year I was digging through some boxes in the attic and found some of my Valentines Day Decorations..... so..... I decided to put them out on the mantel and give it a holiday look in red, pink and brown colors.
I had some red baskets, and red votive candle holders to intermix.  Along with some heart shaped decorations.

I then went to the craft store and bought some red and brown spiral twigs. (I'm sure they have a name, but I'm going to call them spiral twigs.)  This added some fullness and wavy lines to my mantle to help carry your eye from one end to the other yet tie it all together at the same time.
Some more up close shots of the mantle.
Love showing off some of my Longabergers.
There's just something about Valentines Day that makes the winter bearable.
