~ Hearts And A Valentine ~

Thank you for all the sweet comments about my heart tree. I would love it if you started a heart tree too. When I first started my collection, I had a little table top tree and as my collection grew so did my tree. You can have whatever size makes you happy. Here are a few more ornaments I really like.
Most everyone likes Santa, I know I do...this is another Christopher Radko ornament.
Two of my favorites were gifts from a quilting friend. I call the red one with the polka dots my Lucy ornament...it reminds me of I Love Lucy and the little one beneath it is made of pewter with a precious kitty face on it.

Carl had this red stained glass heart made for me by one of his work co-workers.
One of our holiday traditions is to attend The Nutcracker Ballet. I was so excited to find this ornament at the souvenir booth. Isn't he handsome?

One more thing I wanted to share is this beautiful Valentine my honey gave me our first year as a married couple....1963.

I think it is so beautiful for many reasons. If you click on the picture you can really see how pretty it is. It's a Hallmark and cost $1.00......and that was a lot to spend for a card way back then. Hugs to you, Linda

First, the card is just beautiful and it is great you kept it. I love the nutcracker. My favorite so far is still the flag. They are all so nice. What a collection you have. Wow.
