The shelves in the family room display some Valentine love.

I've displayed a tin that looks like a book on one of the shelves.

The vintage toy typewriter on the desk in front of the shelves holds a Valentine greeting.

I used rustic lanterns on each end of the buffet to display a card and a candle.

A loving couple and scrabble letters finish the décor on the two silver trays.

Even the books in the center of the buffet got a Valentine look.

I've always liked this little hand-made bank box that I found at a flea market years ago.

 I wonder what the couple was saving for when one of them crafted this box.

It amazes me how many neat things you find at estates sales and flea markets. Once in awhile I go to a yard sale, but I never see anything vintage or neat like you do.

I agree with these ladies. I seldom find anything as wonderful at these sales. I did, however, find a nail studded wooden Christmas cone from Williamsburg to make a colonial centerpiece for $2. I had plans to use it last Christmas, but I had bought a HUGE red poinsettia at Costco and really felt like there was no room left for it. I am still stunned by the volume of items that you have stored. Also, I am still very curious how you maintain your inventory and where you have room for your stash. We just did a distillery tour in Fredericksburg. They had an inventory sheet hanging on each rack of barrels so that they could successfully find each and every single one. When i asked our tour guide about it, he told me that make many single batches of their bourbon and must be able to pull that particular barrel. When it has reached it maximum barrel time, it must be bottled and sold. We are waiting for notice that the Alexander Bowman has been bottled and available for sale.

Hi Laurie, I love your vintage collection of valentines. The Life magazine is a wonderful addition to your collection. I have a few old ones that I pull out and enjoy every year. They always brighten my kitchen and hutch. Thanks for sharing your collection with us……….

Laurie, you have an amazing collection of vintage valentines. I know it must be fun to pull them out each year. I'm just now getting my things out. I need to get going or I'll miss Valentine's Day. ;-)
