French Cottage Style - Valentine's Day Decor

This may be a bit early, but in between Christmas and Valentine's Day the days can seem so gray and dreary.  So I'm skipping ahead to Valentine's Day and I've already done a bit of decorating and inspiration - cottage style - that I thought I might share with you...

First, you have to decorate your mantel - I love the touch of French chic and the red antique books. 

Cliched, but true - red roses are very romantic.  ;)

These are my lovely and amazingly delicious sugar cookies - nothing says Valentine's Day like a heart shaped cookie.  I love the red and white fabric underneath, don't you?  So sweet!!

Add some romance to your walls with pretty still life portraits - I love this little painting I got at a flea market.  All it needed was a painted and antiqued white coat of paint on the frame to turn it from '60's drab to Shabby Chic fantastic!

And no cottage is complete without a country kitty offering you a Valentine...

Hope this brightens your day!  ;)
Happy Monday!
