Valentine's Kitchen Shelves

The shelves in our kitchen always get a makeover for the change of seasons and holidays. While I am enjoying the simple winter look in the rest of our home, it is fun to add Valentines decor to these shelves at the end of our upper cabinets.



I don't use red or pink in the rest of our home but it is fun to pull out the few red and pink items I have to add colour to our kitchen. Eveything I used for this area was stuff I already had on hand. 


On the breakfast bar I added my newest rolling pin to the jar and took out all the Christmas cookie cutters. I exchanged the gingerbread man tied to the outside with a heart cookie cutter and then added the glittered Kisses. The little red plate holds two heart clay pieces made at school by one of our boys several years ago.


  The little bunting says "Happy Valentines" and is made from scrapbook paper and a tag punch.



The pink toile paper is my favourite.


I like a mix of rustic and more feminine pieces. Chippy paint on rustic wood, delicate roses, my favourite aqua mason jars and ironstone.


 I added a glittered XOXO to the vintage kitchen scale and HUGS and LOVE to my collection of aqua Crown canning jars on the top shelf.


I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Our youngest son Josh turned 14 the day after my niece turned 18 so we had a combined dinner. We are getting some fresh snow and it is quite cold. Definitely still lots of winter left. I had fun playing with the shelves this afternoon but now I need to get busy tidying the house before I head back to work tomorrow. Thanks for visiting!

  1. What a cute vignette around your kitchen shelves. Love that Think Pink sign. I should make one for my daughter who adores the color pink. I also like your collection of rolling pins! It's really cold here today, too, but no snow yet. And honestly, that's fine by me. :)

  5. Such a pretty arrangement you made. I love having a spot I can change out seasonally. I do the same with the shelves in my kitchen (although they are still blue and white rather than Valentines).
