An Angry Valentine

An Angry Valentine

If you won't be my Valentine
I'll scream, I'll yell, I'll bite
I'll cry aloud, I'll start to whine
If you won't be my Valentine.

I'll frown and fret, I'll mope and pine, and
It will serve you right---
If you won't be my Valentine
I'll scream, I'll yell, I'll bite!

~Myra Cohn Livingston
(From the book Valentine Poems)

I started putting up some Valentine's Day decorations. Since I don't use much red for Christmas, I love the pop of red this time of year. A perfect excuse to add color to my normally neutral home.

I'd say I love decorating for Valentine's Day but really, I love decorating for any time of year. I love switching out decor, moving things around and bringing a fresh touch to our home. It just makes me smile. Kind of like that silly poem. :)

Sweet! Great little touches. I have at my snowman decor right now, but Valentine's Day is coming out this weekend (after I finish writing progress reports for my 3rd graders). Love the poem!

I too love to decorate for any season or holiday. I have a spot in my kitchen that I change up... I think the only holiday I don't acknowledge is St. Patrick's day!


PS I love that heart garland made out of pages or newsprint...

I heart it! Very nice to have pops of color this time of year! Traci

I love your decorations. I think I like Valentines day so much just for the fact that I love red so much and it give me an excuse to go all out!

p.s. did you make the book page hearts - - I just love them
