Hearts And Valentines

It been cold and rainy most of today and more of the same is predicted for tomorrow, but that's okay because...... I'm seeing hearts and Valentines everywhere I look, and love is is the air. I tucked this little love garland that Lisa gave me in with this candle and the sparklie gems.
Two pretty cards from years ago...the one on the left is from Carl and the other one was to both of us from my parents way back in 1977. I save all the cards and most of the notes I receive....does anyone else do that? I found the cute picture on the net, printed it and put it in a little frame...it has the sweetest verse and didn't cost a thing. I like this frame and use it over and over.
I love old silver pieces. This heart dish is from a peddlers fair...I've had it so long I really can't remember which one I bought it at. Sometimes I'll use it for a candle, today it holds a heart shaped paperweight.
Aren't conversation hearts fun? I liked this sentiment.

I tucked my new little Valentine in amongst some candles...I had to laugh, I think she is looking at the candle and thinking about blowing it out.
We'll be going to the WX Peddlers Faire tomorrow and then I'm going shopping for the....Wii Fit. I really don't know too much about this and want to get a little information. Does anyone have it? Do you use it and do you like it??? Happy weekend to you, hugs, Linda

I don't have the Wii fit but three of my daughters do and they love them! The first time they connected a Wii to our TV it was the bowling game. I honestly thought one of them would go through the TV set. I love your Valentine's. Ever since I was a small child, I have been intrigued with conversation hearts.
Hugs,
Sweetie

Linda, the day was unseasonable warm today so Ben and I went for a long walk, to take photos for a blog post, for the exercise and along the way I looked for a rock heart for you. We have pink rocks and one of these days I am going to find one for you. xo Lynn

Such a pretty post, Linda! I love it!

We had some nice warm days last week. That's why we took off on our day trip. We're supposed to get your rain, later this week.

I am not into games, but my sons are and I think the Wii is supposed to be so much fun. I have never heard of Wii fit, but it sounds interesting...let us know when you find out more! Love your pretty things! blessings,Kathleen

I am so grateful that my mother had a couple of my Valentine's in my baby book which are the ones I now have by my Valentine's tree. I used to keep things but no longer can as we just don't have storage space in our home. Just one small closet to store everything. It is special to see these old cards, isn't it? You have a wonderful touch of love for this holiday in your home.

Hugs ~
Heidi

I have a box full of cards and stuff from many years ago...... I often wonder what will happen to them one of these days....... I look at them and all the memories come flooding back....... but to others they are just a box of old cards....... Isn't it funny what the heart sings over....

Monica said...

I used to have a few big boxes full of tons of old cards and letters . I guess technically I still have them , just not here in Japan they are in storage for now.
