We are just a month away from Valentine’s Day.

Are you looking for a little Valentine’s Day decor inspiration?

Here’s a post from the archives for a super simple Valentine Vintage Window.


Vintage Window Valentine Decor Idea :: AnExtraordinaryDay.net


I love simple and easy projects and this Valentine vintage window certainly was all that and delivered a huge bang too.  Plus it’s been pinned nearly a thousand times.  Click here to pin-it.


And now on to our Extraordinary Link Party….

Features from Last Week’s Party

My Pick…

I confess, I love science experiments and with this sudden deep freeze last week even indulged in an experiment myself, in addition to making snow ice cream.  So when I saw this…not only is it now on my list to try…but I’m sure no matter your age you’ll want to have some fun with frozen bubbles too!

Malia’s Pick

I agree with Malia, this is one inspiring project.  I see these bud vases at garage sales all the time and wonder what I could do with them.  Well, now I know.

Stephanie’s Pick…

Every preschooler needs a fun play mat with its own carry case.  And this one is perfect for winter time fun without dealing with the snowsuit.

Mary Beth’s Pick…

This is a terrific pillow-making tutorial.  I love how the X’s and O’s will look fantastic all year long, not just for Valentine’s Day.

  5. What a festive antique window decoration! I have two antique windows mounted in my dining room and can use a variation of your decoration for them. Thanks!
    I love the candlestick makeover you have highlighted! I have a whole new vision for those 25cent candlesticks at the thrift store. I’ve seen painted candlesticks before but really like these!

    Blessings, Edie Marie
