We’re already past the half-way point of January, y’all! Can you believe it?! Time is just a flyin’!
So I figured it was time to get a bit of Valentine’s Day decor up and running. May I present, the 2017 Valentine’s Day Holiday Shelf:
As with everything else, my goal these days is always simplicity. But I wanted to mix a few different mediums on this one, as well.
Well, there it went. The first month of 2015 is OVER, folks!
I have to say, I very much enjoyed January of 2015. I always take January off from my photography business (because I run myself into the ground October, November and December) so I’ve actually been operating at a bit of a slower pace for the past month. I mean, I’m still working full time and doing the blog…but slower, nonetheless!
I’m really loving what everyone else is loving here on the blog in January, and that makes me happy! So, without further ado, here are the top five posts on The Road to Domestication for the month of January:
1. The 2015 Valentine’s Day Holiday Shelf – I think this one was popular with everyone because of the giveaway, right? Well, the winner has been chosen and her personalized print mailed to her, but the shelf is still decorated just like this, if you want to see!
Okay, don’t kill me for posting about Valentine’s Day already, but I can’t help it! The Christmas decorations are down, and what’s there to decorate for next that can stay up for a while but Valentine’s Day!
I wanted to do the shelf really simple this year. Maybe it’s the fact that the Christmas shelf was borderline gaudy…I’m not sure. But I knew I wanted simple and GIRLY. I don’t get the chance to do much girly around these parts, so I wanted to express myself on this one!

And now, here’s the 2015 Valentine’s Day Holiday Shelf:
Fairly simple, right? I mean, look how much “white space” I left!
Well, I’ve procrastinated a bit with the Valentine’s Day Holiday Shelf this time, due to the fact that I’m not even totally sure that’s it’s complete! Ever had one of those projects that you had a direction for, but you just couldn’t get it to come together in a satisfactory manner? Yeah. That’s me with this! So we’ll see what everyone thinks…maybe you can help me out a bit with it!

My idea for the decor was that I wanted to combine strawberries and Valentine’s Day, because I’m from the Winter Strawberry Capital of the World, and we’re gearing up for berry season right now, which overlaps Valentine’s Day, too…so I wanted to do, “For the Love of Strawberries”. Here’s what I ended up with:
Let’s look at the details…
