Valentines And Flea Market Friday

I've just fallen in love with little vintage Valentine cards. I purchased this one on Flea Market Friday from Michelle at Back Through Time and it is just so sweet. For a better look at these darling images you can click on any of the pictures. On the back , written in pencil and just barely visible, it reads...To Grandma...From, Helen Sanderson...I love it she signed her last name.
Michelle also sent me surprise Valentine treasures..this darling little card. Don't you just love her hat and muff and look at the precious kissing cupids
These little cards tucked here and there just make me smile. Oh, did you notice the initial charm? Michelle crafted this. It's made from a vintage Anagram game piece, on the back is a small carved basket of flowers and the ribbon is also vintage. What is so cool I can wear my charm as a necklace or I can turn it into a pin. Michelle, thank you for these surprises...you are a dear friend. Besure to visit Michelle, she has a wonderful blog, but also check out her shops listed on her sidebar....there are so many goodies. Have a fun Friday....hugs, Linda

What lovely vintage cards, we don't tend to find many in the UK and if you do they're quite pricey but when I do see them I snap them up.

Linda! I just sent you an email. Thank you so much for the beautiful needle threader and scissor fob! I will treasure them!
I love those little valentines too. I love how you display them in your flower frogs. I could kick myself every time I think about the flower frogs I sold in a yard sale years ago. What was I thinking!?
