Getting My $$ Worth!

Since it is February, I finally put a few hearts out here and there.

 Remember these?  I got six of these little pots with (very ugly) plastic plants in them. The pots themselves are actually heavy and nice.

 I had been watching them forever at Pier 1 and snatched up all six of them when they got to this price. I figured they would not much lower.

I pulled out the plastic cactus and rock and replaced them with small white pumpkins. When I was stalking the pots at Pier 1, I kept imagining them with little
white pumpkins
on top.
I loved this look. 
I used them at my son's 
rehearsal dinner and
wedding reception 
in Ocotber.

For Christmas I topped each one
with a single
red glittered ball.
Simple and elegant.

For New Year's I topped them with a single
silver orb.
Again, simple and perfect with my vintage clocks.

So for Valentine's Day, I pulled out my tin hearts.
I decided to put the hearts in half of them and
leave half of them with only the moss showing.
The hearts look like pressed tin
and make romantic little
urns when combined.
Simple, easy, perfect.
I think I got my money's worth out of my 
Pier 1 mini urns.
What's next?
Shamrocks?  Eggs? Hmmmm!
