Hello and happy Valentine’s weekend everyone! I didn’t do a dedicated Valentine’s post this year, but I thought I would still share the cards I made and a tiny bit of festive decor…

I didn’t do anything very exciting this week and was starting to feel just a bit housebound, since the temperatures plummeted this week. It was deceptively sunny outside; but the thermometer was actually at -38 Celsius!!!

There were also so many beret and hat themed posts that I saw this week- including several perfect for Valentine’s Day! If you’ve decided you want to follow my tutorial for making a beret out of an old sweater, here are some great free tutorials.

Brittani of Untitled Thoughts shared a tutorial for an embroidered beret. How cute would it be to embroider it with wool yarn?

And then Charlotte of Tuppence Ha’Penny shared how she made a heart shaped beret last year- so cute!

And if a beret isn’t really your thing, she’s also just released a tutorial for a heart shaped pillbox hat perfect for Valentine’s Day!

And finally, Kristina of The Eyre Effect just posted a Galentine’s outfit with a heart shaped beret (and a cute vintage cape!) in case you are looking for inspiration on how to style your new beret.

I think I’m going to spend my weekend crafting and creating…and maybe baking some sort of heart themed treat for Valentine’s Day tomorrow. Do you have any Valentine plans? Or other plans for this weekend? Do you think you’ll try making one of these hats?
