My Valentine's Decor and Scentsy Warmer Giveaway

I don't claim to be a decorator, but I do what I can with what I have. I do have young kids who get excited about little things, like Valentine's decorations, ice cream, and trips to Costco. (What? Don't you like the free samples too?) I didn't go "all out" for Valentine's Day, but I did try to bring in a few little touches here and there. (I apologize for the small photos again today. Blogger hates me, and I'm wondering if I ought to return the favor. It keeps chopping off the bottoms of my larger pictures!)

No mantel here, so I use the top of my TV armoire. The balloons were leftover from Michaela Byrd's birthday party....

The lantern is from my Blessings Unlimited shop. I dressed it up with Valentine's ribbon and glittery heart ornaments. The plate is from Target's Dollar Spot and I filled the small apothecary with Hershey's kisses.

In the kitchen, my Blessings Blocks spell out a new message, and I have some other Valentine's goodies here and there.


Finally, the nice folks at Scentsy sent me a Hugs and Kisses Warmer to try out, and the whole family has been pleased with it.
I can't smell, but I love the fact that it uses a low wattage bulb that puts out a soft glow at night. T, who is as persnickety as an 85 year old man, actually commented on how nicely the Honey Pear Cider scent distributed throughout the living room and kitchen. I placed the warmer on a plate to protect the finish on T's fancy schmancy end table, but I don't think it was really necessary.

Guess what? I have a little Valentine's surprise for you guys:

Scentsy would like to offer a Hugs and Kisses Warmer and TWO scents to one lucky Serenity Now reader!

Here's how you can enter (Leave a separate entry for each thing you do):
1. Leave me a comment.
Any comment. It can be about how great I am, how many Hershey's kisses you think I fit into that apothecary, your favorite scent, what you're doing today, whatever.
2. Tweet this Giveaway.
3. Facebook this Giveaway.
4. Link up a post to my Weekend Bloggy Reading party this weekend and link back or include my party button within your post. (No need to add a comment here for that one. A valid link gives you an automatic entry)

Giveaway open until 10 pm (ET) on Sunday!

  4. I'd say your armoire top does quite well as a mantel stand-in!

    I just love that BU lantern. Beautiful. And quite frankly, you can never go wrong filling things with Hershey's kisses. :)

    Everything looks so cheerful and welcoming! Just how a home should look.

  36. I did nothing today except try to stay warm. You would think that living in Texas, warmth wouldn't be an issue. But this last winter storm was a killer and there's ice everywhere!!! So I'm stuck inside until it thaws!

  46. Cute Valentine's decorations. I don't do a lot either but with young kids it's fun to add some fun things around the house.

    I've heard of Scentsy but haven't tried any of their stuff yet. Thanks for the chance.

    Oh, and the other day you asked about how I am liking Heart of the Matter...I'm not getting into it. I'm going to try to read a little more tonight and see if it hooks me.

    Til Next Time,
    Jenn
