For a Valentine vignette, I gathered some symbols of love.
A vintage Valentine handkerchief,
A heart-shaped china box,
A vintage Valentine card,
A faux conversation heart and a few strings of pearls.
Does anybody else remember “The Love Bug”? These were necklaces with the VW Beatle on the front and the words “The Love Bug Loves”. On the back was the word “Me”. I know, you can’t believe I still have these?
A romantic plate and
A reproduction vintage Valentine fan.
The necklace from my sweetheart’s tour in Viet Nam. He took my half of the heart, and I kept his half. When he returned from Viet Nam, the two halves became a necklace for me.
A “Love” sign,
A ribbon-tied stack of love letters, and
A book of pictures of old Valentine cards.
I put them all into the jewelry box, which was mine when I was a teenager (and which, unfortunately, is now vintage) for a vignette on a table in the sunroom.
