Showin' a Little Love

Holy cow you guys!  Someone nominated me for one of the Homies awards on Apartment Therapy.  I'm nominated for Best Home Project & DIY Blog.  Guys!  I don't know who nominated me.  I didn't even know I was nominated until I noticed my traffic was way up and the Apartment Therapy website was the referring address.  Holy cow.  Whoever nominated me, thanks, you're the best.

So, if you want to vote for me you can click here and it will take you there.  And if you don't want to scroll forever and try to find me, you can hit "Ctrl F" and a cute little search box will appear and you can type in Lip Gloss and Flats.  Or you can vote for whoever you want to.  I'm not the boss of you.  There are tons of wonderful people nominated.  Lots of sweet people whose blogs I read and more I can't wait to start reading.  Either way, head over and vote for somebody, show some blog love.

And in spirit of some love I'm back with some fun little Valentiney projects to share with you.  First off, my other front door wreath.  Remember, back when I shared this wreath with you, I promised there was more in store.  So, here we go.  Since I have two front drawers, I have to have two front door wreaths.  Apparently at all times.  It's become an addiction.
So, this is a foam wreath wrapped with white yarn.  I hot glued on pink and grey diamonds and wrapped hot pink yarn to make this snazzy argyle pattern.  To finish it off I hung it with a grey ribbon (the ribbon came off a blanket I got for Christmas, resourceful!)

And my Valentines mantle.  I wanted to do more but....  I got lazy is really the only excuse.  So, I dressed up my candle holders, I just wrapped some pink polk a dot ribbon around them.  And I made a pretty pink wreath.  I wrapped bright pink yarn around a foam wreath.  And I made a big pink bow out of felt.  So pretty.  And then there's the heart canvas.  It's the cousin to my Christmas confetti canvases.  The canvases from Christmas came in a three pack so I had one left over.  I grabbed all the bottles of pink paint from my paint stash.  I just went to town making pink dots in the shape of a heart.  I used a piece of wax paper cut into a heart stencil as my guide.  It's not perfect but I think it's pretty cute.

So, there we go.  The rest of my Valentines decorations.  Did you decorate for Valentines?  Or are you like me and had great intentions of pretty decorations and then just got too busy.  Sure, I could do a couple more things this week/weekend but I don't see much point when Valentines is next week.


  1. You've been busy! I LOVE the heart canvas! You know I've already been to Apartment Therapy for you! ;)

    1. I forgot to tell you that you should totally make a Valentine's Day Gift list! I'd love to see what you come up with.

    2. Thanks and thanks!

      I think my Valentines list is going to happen. Maybe this afternoon. Hopefully it will be up tomorrow.
