If you saw our mantel, decorated for Valentine's Day, you probably already know that I like vintage Valentine cards.
They are everywhere in our home during the Valentine season.
As I've said before, I still feel the excitement that I had in school, when we decorated a box and everyone in class stuck a card in it. (I know, you're wondering how anybody as old as me can still remember school. I may not remember what day today is, but I do remember the school Valentine parties.)
Today, I'm sharing the cards that I displayed in our sunroom.
I also have an affinity for Valentine candy boxes.
Some of my cards are vintage, and some are reproductions.
This corner of the sunroom is right next to a window, and it is difficult to get a good picture without a lot of glare, but I have a tree of hearts on the table, and...
I displayed a box of old Valentine cards. (Sorry about the big shadow.)
A reproduction Santos doll displays some cards on top of my scales.
More vintage cards are displayed nearby.
Her heart necklace was mine. It's one of those split, magnet hearts. When my sweetheart went to Viet Nam, he took the half with my name on it, and I kept the half with his name on it. When he returned, my heart was whole again.
I enjoyed sharing part of my Valentine card collection with you (yes, there are more!). laurie
