Valentine's Day Mantel & a Heart Giveaway

After realizing how many hearts were on our Valentine's Day Mantel I thought it might be fun for you to  find "how many" hearts are in this post to win this prize.
I will be giving away my grapevine, "sweater heart wreath" to one sharp winner!

Note: there are LOTS of hearts and some sneaky ones, too.....the hearts on the garland swag and necklaces will not count (too many hearts within them) 
ALL other hearts in each photo of this post count...
Now, start counting and share this post with anyone that you think might like to have some fun and win my cute, little heart, too!

Now, a look at our mantel...

The traditional red and white theme works best for our décor and both vintage and nostalgic items from our collections were added to create this year's Valentine Mantel theme.

Mom's vintage pitcher, white roses and grandma's brass paperweight take center stage.

Lots of hearts here!


our ladder of love stands nearby

with a "shabby glam" heart wreath

and valentine's of love.

Grandma's, red vintage, heart, ring box is a cherished keepsake with a new photo of me and my girls...LOVE!
  The closest guess ( ALL hearts in every photo) wins....Good Luck!

Love, Hugs and Kisses,
***ties will be broken with a random drawing***

This sounds like fun, Janet! I may have lost track of one or two but I think I found four "hidden" ones. I also counted the ones on your hearth, not sure if you are considering that part of the mantel. My guess is 27! said...

My guess is 30 :)
