Hi . My name is Stephanie and I am new to being an author on a blog. I have been an avid follower of many decorating blogs and have become, well addicted. I have found inspiration from many of these sites and thought I would give this a try.

I am a Mom of two wonderful young men. I am married to an amazing man who is in law enforcement. Which is why I named my blog No Place Like Home. After a long, intense day we all like to come HOME where we can feel safe and release the pressures of the day.

Welcome and buckle up for the ride :)

The Month of LOVE

Wow, another month has gone by so fast and it is February already.  Where is time going?  Don't get me wrong I am glad the winter is appearing to go by rapid, as I am a Spring/Summer time girl.  I love to be outside!!
I personally have not done much decorating for Valentine's Day, but I have found a lot of inspiration.  Some eye candy for you.  Enjoy.
A unique take on the traditional heart.  I would guess it is made of either Lavender or Sage.  Either way it would smell pleasant.

Decorate your windows with hearts from tissue paper.  How fun.

I actually have a branch from our birch tree that I used for pine cones during Christmas.  I thought about leaving it up all year and decorate for the various seasons. I do like the puffed hearts.  They could be made from felting and stuffed or simply craft papers.

Melt your children's busted crayons for a fun pin or a simple crayon for the little ones. These "pins" say "Happy Valentine's Day for Crayon Out Loud."

These hearts could be made of tissue or fabric.  Your choice, whatever you had laying around.  Cute!!

Simple and fun.

Votive filled with "sprinkles".  You know the kind you use for decorating cookies.  OR you could fill with beads, many options.

Yum, Yum.  Candy for decorations?  They would NOT last at my home!!! Still pretty...EYE CANDY.

Simple and elegant.  Roses in a silver vase.

Hope you are inspired to decorate your home.  When you are done you can come over and do mine. ;)
