Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that just makes me smile, so I thought I'd bring a little of that happy feeling into our home this year with a mantel update. I just adore typography so what better way to show my love.
Typography, oh how I love thee...let me count the ways...
- The "I love you" heart print is from The Love Shop
- I received this gorgeous illustrated card as a gift with purchase from Eva Juliet. I usually craft my mister's Valentines so I thought the card would make a cute framed print.
- The XO were scores from the Michael's dollar bin.
- The February print is part of a leftover letterpress calendar I purchased a couple years back from Orange Beautiful.

Happy Valentine's Day! While I'm sure I'll consume my fair share of Be Mine heart candies this afternoon, in truth my favorite hearts are a little more organic in form. I stopped by one of my favorite garden centers, Flora Grubb, over the weekend to see if there were any heart-shaped lovelies gracing its grounds. Ms. Flora Grubb herself showed me around the design-forward shop, pointing out new and unusual plants that had recently arrived. Then, left to my own devices, I went on a search to find some hearts of my own.
