Valentine Shelves and 18 Days of…

February is here, and with it comes a change of decor around our home. I decorate a few other places, but none as loved as these amazing shelves my husband made for me out of the beams he took out of our 1900 farmhouse.

A few things I kept from January… my black and white wood bead garland, but I flipped over the circle. This side has “home” on it with a heart. Good all year, but also good for Valentine’s Day. Also, my buffalo check wood house, black snowflake block, my skinny wood snowman (made by one of my boys when they were younge) and some snowballs. In our part of the country we still have snow in February.

New for the month are the ceramic strainer (from Hobby Lobby last year), my XO blocks (also made by one of my boys) and my new red truck (Hobby Lobby a couple weeks ago.)

On the bottom shelf I added a couple red felt hearts my oldest daughter made a few years back.

Oh, and the black chalkboard on the left is something I added mid-January and kept over. 18 days ago, in fact. That’s my sugar free count. I’ve been sugar free off and on over the last 4-5 years. But when I get back on it, it’s hard to go off again. I was thinking that the sign would help, and I was right! Today is day 18 off sugar! It keeps me accountable to all the kids. They are such a great cheering section. In those first few days when I would normally be super tempted to start over again at “Day zero”, I hardly struggled because I knew I’d have to write a zero on that board. The other night when I so wanted to have a “cheat” day because everyone else was eating cake and ice cream, I didn’t because of that board.

Have you ever added an accountability board to your decor?
