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! ;)
