Decorating a Vintage Bookcase for Valentine's Day

It's less than a month until Valentine's Day, so I brought a few items into my décor.  I have used all of these in former years, but in different places.

I love to decorate the bookcase in the dining room.  Painting this bookcase white was my first chalk paint project.  One of the doors that I painted and distressed stands behind the bookcase adding to the vintage appeal.

 The little shelf holds a DT doily, and a small candy tin, as well as a glass heart tea light holder I've had for years.  The foil heart also came from DT.

Love this cupid couple.  Bought at a drug store a long time ago.

Same here, bought at Eckerd Drugs.

This is an old sewing tin that held sewing machine accessories, but I love using it for Valentine's and Christmas.  I filled it with fabric hearts I made over the last couple of years.

(the green on the lid is the reflection of my shirt).  :)

This wire basket is filled with fabric hearts, as well.

The cloche holds a solitary heart.

Here is the entire bookcase.

I haven't done a lot of decorating for Valentine's Day, but will share a couple more spots in the next few days!

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?
