It's the REDnesday before Valentine's Day, so c'mon, let's look at some decorations at Old Glory Cottage!
The front porch. It was an extremely windy day, so the flag is wrapped tightly around the pole, and I had to take the red birdcage off of it's stand because it was whacking against the house. I wish I could get a decent shot of the house all lit up at night, because it's pretty darn cute. And once again, I can't wait to prune the heck out of those bushes this Spring!
A close-up. I painted the sign several years ago, and planted lots of hearts in that windowbox!
The back porch.
I really must thank the person that I bought these cherubs from, at a garage sale. I can't even imagine how long it must have taken them to cut these out of wood. All I had to do was paint them!
My old childhood sled.
An old red watering can, hanging on the lamppost. Sure wish I would have moved the Junkmobile before I took this shot!  
Vintage valentine cards.
"Mr. & Mrs. Old Glory, sitting under a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!"
More vintage cards. That one on the top left is my current favorite. I just love decorating for the holidays, don't you?!? On Friday, I'll be busting out a bit o' the green for St. Patrick's Day. But that's not what you want to hear about on REDnesday, so you should probably go check out It's A Very Cherry World right now!!!

Beautiful. Truthfully, babysitting grandchildren has been keeping me too busy to put up decorations this year but we did have fun preparing Valentine's. We took the Walmart route, though, with Super Heros and tattoos all the way. :) Happy and More Vintage-y Valentine's Greetings to y'all :)

Love all your decorations for Valentines day Carol! Love those cherubs too!! Maybe I can get hubby to cut some out for me, or show me how. It can be tedious at times.
