Valentines 1

I've already mentioned that I really like vintage Valentine cards.  So, for Friday Faves, I'm posting more Valentine card decor.  

Valentines 2

Cards decorate the china cabinet in the kitchen.

Some are reproduction, but most are vintage.

Valentines 4

The alcove over the range is decorated with a banner.

Valentines 5

And there is a lineup of Valentine temptations. (I've already had to refill the M & M jar, and I'm afraid I'm the only one who is sneaking them out of the jar!)

A little Valentine decor makes the hutch in the family room more festive.

Valentines 7

I printed this reproduction card/game from a blog several years ago (Knitting Iris)  Isn't it fun?  

Valentines 8

Valentine love has also reached the buffet behind the sofa in the family room.

Valentines 10

The King of Hearts, under a cloche, and a romantic couple are on the silver tray at one end of the buffet.

Valentines 11

 The Queen of Hearts and another romantic couple are on the tray on the opposite end.

See my "hippie" ribbon?  Yeah, I was a hippie wannabe.  (That means, when a wore a pony tail, I tied it with some hippie-looking ribbon.)

Next week, my Friday Faves will be links to Valentine posts on other blogs.  You definitely will want to come back, so you can check out all of the wonderful links at the Valentine par-tay!

Thank you for stopping in.  Have a great weekend. laurie

Bloggers, don't forget to come link up your Valentine posts February 6th.  It's going to be a fun par-tay!

Laurie, I was inspired to put a few things out this week. Not doing much this year.
Looks like you are ready for the party. Thanks for hosting.

It all looks so cute. I like the picture showing your whole room said...

I just love all your vintage collections Laurie, wherever do you find your treasures? I love the Valentine cards especially, everything is just delightful! Looking forward to the party!

WOW, love all your Valentine decorations. The only thing I have is a heart shaped wreath, which I will put on the front door. I have lots of red candles so that kinda gives the impression that I decorated for Valentines Day.
Hope all is well with you and that darling little grandson. Hope he is doing well.

Hi Laurie, this is great for Friday Favs. I'm late getting here but what inspiration to visit and view your lovely decorations and cards.
Cards under a cloche is such a sweet idea and love the banners.
Your whole room is stunning my friend.
Cozy and inviting.

Always love your parties Laurie. I love your collection of vintage Valentine’s cards, I also collect them. Your King of Hears in the cloche is my favorite tied with the “hippy” ribbon!
Happy Sunday.............

You are the Hostess with the Mostess for sure. It certainly looks like you are ready to host a marvelous Valentine's Day Par-Tay. I am getting ready as fast as I can move (at a rapid snail's pace I assure you). All of the craft boxes are out so I can finish some projects and the V-Day plates are washed and ready.
