Crossing my fingers that this posts. I was here last night but rather than throw Della out the window in a fit of rage, I slept on it. Not Della... the rage.

Anyway, thanks for being the spunky Laurie that you are and hosting this. I'm hoping to mingle about this afternoon and get into the valentine spirit before the husband comes home. I love your vintage cards. You have an awesome collection. I laughed about the one who brought a cat. You're so silly.
