Valentines Mantle

Ohhh I love my every changing decor.
Fall was great, Christmas was fun, and now Valentines day has inspired me to mix new with old while embracing simple.
And along with seasonal changes I have also had fun painting my fake mantle 
{Fantle as I like to call it}
once again....
it officially started out as a cabinet, first painted from bright red to white, and then to all gray-ish black.
But now I have added some light teal-ish blue to the mix.

I adore changing the colors and the decor every other minute.

I was wishing for a kind of incorporation of all of the things I love....
including vintage and distressed books,
old drawers and sea colored vintage bottles...
because that is what Valentines is about to me----celebrating what you love.

and so of course my love has to be a part of the theme as well.
I made the simple you and me plaque with a cut out design from my silhouette.
And I don't know if you guys noticed the sideways eight randomly sitting on its side? 
Hubbie and I always and forever have been cute about writing the infinity symbol {which kind of looks like a sideways eight} on each and every note we write each other.
Sometimes when we are just sitting on the couch watching a movie he will just trace the symbol on my arm....
ohhh goodness now I am getting a little gooey on you, butttt I thought it would be neat to include the infinity with my Valentines decor.

And since I love numbers....

I like the mix of the modern mirror with the vintage frame...
What do you think?

And how about the color of the mantle now? 
Do you like the two toned look?
I thought it was a fun change....
nothing permanent but fun none the less!

And a look at the room as a whole.

Yes I think I will be enjoying this look for a few weeks!

I am linking up to a few of my favorite parties---be sure to check them out if you are looking for wonderful inspiration!!!
