vintage valentines...

No I am not talking about Jim and I, although we have been each other's Valentine since we were 15!

Debra is having a Vintage Valentine Party over at Common Ground and I thought I would share a few of the vintage Valentine cards that Mary Ellen has for sale at the shop...






Pretty sweet don't you agree?!

I am going to treat myself to a few bunches of fresh flowers tomorrow when I go to the market and will mix them in with the few treasures I use for Valentine's Day decorating...


Maybe I will get a bunch or two of white tulips...


Last year I was lucky enough to win this pretty banner in a giveaway from Jeanine...


Thanks Jeanine, I love it!


I am really embracing a simpler look around my home this year.
Less is more!

Thank you Debra for hosting and thank you all for visiting!
Enjoy your weekend!!

Such precious Valentines at the store! And I LOVE that papered box you've got there.
I can't believe you & the mister have been together since you were 15. You are a wonderful example of true soul mates!
Did you get Michelle's email about being on the news for Pinterest! What!!!! That's the first I heard of it, but I'll be watching for sure. I think your White Event should be on the news next. :)

Hi Sandi,
That banner is really special! I also love these Valentine treasures you have shared with us tonight. I wish I had kept some that I had as a child. Some were quite pretty.
Oh I do hope you treat yourself to some pretty white tulips...I don't think there is anything lovelier that white tulips.
Have a wonderful weekend Sandi!
