"Love is in the Air" Valentine's Mantel

"Love is in the Air" Valentine Mantel

Welcome to my home! I'm getting ready for Valentine's Day. Planning a nice menu, decorating a pretty table and looking forward to some time with my husband. I love flowers, candles, soft music, teddy bears, hearts, a crackling fire and poetry. Hope you make things special for your love too! xoxox Jennnifer aka Gigi

I am linking to a fun mantel party check it out The Stories A to Z.

Song of Solomon:

Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm.
For love is strong as death and jealousy as cruel as the grave.
Many waters can not quench love, neither floods destroy it.
If a man offered all he had for love, it would be utterly scorned.
Jennifer aka Gigi


  1. Beautiful mantle and artful pics! Lots of love, XOXO Amy

  2. How fun, sweet, and festive! Thanks for linking up to the party.

  3. i always love to place cards on my mantel as well. i love seeing sentiments from the ones i love.

    happy valentine's day!

  4. oh my goodness!!!
    my heart belongs to laguna beach! i jokingly say this, (but it's VERY true) i have been going to laguna beach ever since i was in the womb!
    we used to live in so. calif. we would go there 3 -4 times a year. now we live in tennessee. i still would go there every year. but since i have had the kids - i haven't been. i am LONGING to go. my husband just told me this week that we might go this summer. (if we pinched our pennies) i am sure you can understand buying 5 airline tickets + hotel (in laguna) + car rental = a stretch for this family!!! but we are going to try our best.
    how lucky for your daughter to live there. honestly, it is my "happy place" i love where we live now - but my heart will always have a soft spot for laguna.

    thanks for letting me ramble!
