Memories of Valentines Day


I have so many wonderful memories of Valentine's Day like school parties with pretty paper Valentine napkins.



crystal candy dishes filled with candy red hots


I remember when we would use pretty tissue paper



& paper doilies

& pretty trims

To make beautiful valentines.


On Valentines I remember red glittered hearts

Romantic vintage images

Chocolate hearts

heart shaped tins filled with valentine candy

and even more valentine candy

and sugary sweet lip gloss to kiss my sweetheart


I remember making thumbprint cookies with red jelly


I always loved valentine picture frames & roses

Valentine linens

Heart shaped dishes and baskets and red ribbons

I received a big box on Saturday
(I think God knew I could really use a treat that day)
I carefully opened it up and guess what was in it.

All the things I think of when I think of Valentines Day.

Thank you to Mary for my Very Vintage Valentine Swap




And a big thank you to Heidi Ann at Foxgloves Fabric, & Folly for hosting the swap

How fantastic! I loved this post. I was just thinking about stocking up and letting my littlest guys make the valentine cards for their papa ans sisters. After seeing all your goodies, I know I'll get it done now.
Thanks for popping in and paying me a visit. I'm Rechelle, and I'm very happy to "meet" you!
I hope your day is great!

Hi Debbie~
I loved your blog, I found you through another blog and saw you are a Texas girl. I am too, I came from a little town not far from you. Vernon. My dad fished at Lake Kemp in the summers. Brings back lots of memories. I'm in Fort Worth now and love it.
Hope you will stop by and see me for a visit. I would love to have you drop in.
Smiles,
Pat
