Laurie, this is the cutest post. I definitley think you brought everything needed to the party. I did a repeat. I hope this doesn't get me banned from the party. I have so many irons in the fire, I can't stop for 2 seconds. I'll do better next time. Love you and thanks for hosting such a fun party. Hugs, Marty

Hi Laurie, What a CUTE Valentine's Day Party. It's perfect for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, too busy dealing with the issues of caring for elderly parents and babysitting grandchildren to be able to get out to many parties. But thanks to you and so many others, there are fun and sweet Valentine blog parties all over the internet and we are REALLY appreciating the fun! I've got this linked up with other fun site-seeing at Thank you :)

Hi Laurie and here I am at your party! Love all your olden cards and I see they've just about taken care of everything! OH, my goodness! Only two hunks? Well, I'll get in line for Brad! :)
Be a sweetie and thank you for hosting this fun party.

Hi Laurie! I love all of your valentines, and I especially like the one with Tom Selleck. Thank you so much for hosting!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Debbie said...

Laurie, you nut. I giggled every time Brad popped up. BUT THEN... I noticed that you had my man Tom Selleck bringing you flowers.

You can keep the flowers, but Tom is MINE.

BTW, my daughter is horrified that I'm schlepping her first love story to a whole new party. LOL

Katherine said...

So much fun- love the pics of Brad (as my kids call him Mr. Armpit!) More than that though, I am loving all of these great Valentines links!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Wow Laurie, I'm starstruck! But I'll take the cookies, too. I hope you and your family have a great Valentine's Day! Thanks for hosting us!

Hello Ms. Laurie!

Yeah the day is here! It's finally here! I was so excited that I decided to create two posts~ one on Decor To Adore and one on my French blog, Metis Linens.
It looks like the party is off to a swell start! I absolutely love who you invited just for us. I'll have a cupcake too! :)

I wanted to invite you to the two linky parties I am planning. The first will be on February 23~ High Tea Tablescapes. Details can be found on my Wednesday posts.

We are all having such a grand time at your party, you are the hostess with the mostest.

Thank you for hosting this fun Valentine's Party... my entry is of a Valentine's Day Heart that I purchased for Valentine's Day made by an amazing Artist, Binky La Faye. I can't eat chocolate so I never get the lovely Heart Boxes, but this repurposed one was SO lovely and no chocolates to waste! *winks*

Just wanted you to know I was hoping to join you & I tried.
LOVE your pictures!!!!

I hope to be back blogging normally when we return. I'm having withdrawal!!!!!!!!!!!


Savannah Granny said...

I was really late to the party. I was trying to get it linked up and Sweet Old Bob was wanting to go to bed. When he started snoring I got up. Have you ever done that?
Wanted to thank you for hosting the party. You are so sweet to do so. I don't see how you do such beautiful decor and work also. You have so many beautiful holiday things. I always look forward to seeing what you are going to do next. Love the captions. I need to learn how to do that. Are the valentines your collection or do you find the images online?
Keep it up. Hugs, Ginger

KBeau said...

I'm back. Just in case you've been wondering where I've been. And since I did a Valentine's Day post, I guess I'm going to have to link up. Anyway, I've been on a little break since my knee surgery and just lazy about getting back to blogging. Your old cards are just precious.

KBeau said...

Oops. Guess it's too late to link up. That's what I get for being late to the party. Happy Valentine's Day.
