I know there are some in Blogville who have a “thing” against Valentine’s Day. I can only hope that everyone has someone (even if it is a pet) who loves them, because love (even if it is not romantic love) warms the heart.
I guess you can tell that I have nothing against Valentine’s Day. It’s obvious I have nothing against collecting Valentine’s cards, since I’ve covered the top of the piano with them!
Some of the cards I showed in my previous post were kept by my mother from mine and my sister’s childhood. When I cleaned out her house, I was happy to find them. The older ones were collected by a friend of mine. When Charlie Ann no longer wanted her collection of Valentine cards, I was the very lucky recipient of her collection! I have mixed a few reproduction cards in with the vintage cards.
I printed this game from a blog last year (I’m so sorry I can’t remember the blog name). I always point the arrow to “Rich Man”. I know, it’s a little late for that kind of wishful thinking, but my sweetheart is rich in wonderful attributes, so I consider myself fortunate to have married a rich man.
Those of you who have visited my blog long enough know that this collection is usually on the mantel in our family room. I recently posted about my “snow birds” I used on my mantel (here). I was enjoying my birds so much that I wasn’t ready to replace them with Valentines. I did add a little Valentine décor to the birds on that mantel, and I’ll share that soon.
Don’t forget my Valentine Party Linkup on February 11th! I hope you’ll join the party.
I am linking to A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday. It warms my heart that you came by for a visit. laurie
