Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! On this most special day......... I know love, love, love is in the air.
Even one of my little birdies is celebrating today.
These sweet Valentine post cards were sent many years ago, to friends and family with wishes for a happy day. Some of the cards just have an address with no message at all.......I like to think they were sent by a secret admirer to a special someone. I love this little memory tree....it a has a heart base and the little holders are hearts too. How perfect is that?
Tonight at dinner we will exchange our Valentienes, but I want to show you my treasures from my friend Michelle and her hubby. Besides loving hearts I have a thing for crowns too. Look at this beautiful crown..it is gorgeous, and I adore it. Plus the little cherub candle...which I will never want to burn and the sweet birdie with the crown were from them too. She found the birdie in darling Dolly's esty boutique...she has the most lovely things.
Tonight as night falls I will light my heart tree, sit with a cup of tea and just savor the memories of this special day. Happy Valentine's Day dear friends and may your day be very special too. Hugs Linda

Good Afternoon Linda,
"HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY" to you and yours. You have some beautiful things you received from Michelle. "THANK YOU" for sharing them. I really love the Card holder with the hearts. I have a thing for hearts as you know. Oh my goodness, Your heart tree is very beautiful. It looks so pretty all lit up. I hope you picked up the Valentine's Wreath and Friendship Banner I gave everyone today. If you didn't, when you have time, stop back by to pick them up. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

When I was a little girl my mom had a tree she decorated for Valentines day. Yours is much prettier! Enjoy your day. I'm off to Whole Foods.

So your heart tree looks beautiful. Did you just leave up the Christmas tree re-decorated with hearts? It's a new idea for me. Thanks.
