Happy Valentine's Day

I found this vintage valentine at one of my favorite local shops last week. The shop is called Found. That's a great name isn't it? This card is so sweet. I usually give Bill a humorous, contemporary valentine and a vintage one, if I have come across one. I snatched this one up. A few years ago I saw this one and I HAD to get it for Bill.I had this one framed and we admire it all year round.

There was a lot of pressure associated with Valentine's day when I was young and single. Would I get the right Valentine from someone special. Would I give the right one?? Now that I am not young or single, Valentines Day is much more enjoyable. It's a sweet day isn't it? I hope you have a sweet day with all of your sweeties.

And speaking of sweet...... this is Bill when he was young and single.Is that hysterical or what?

Oh, and SheilaS asked about the pincushion from the previous post. I made the pincushion from a pattern in this book.

Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted GiftsLast Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. You will love this book. It has many great patterns for easy hand made gifts.

A wonderful Valentine of the hockey player. Enjoyed Bill's pic. I remember when our neighbor, a school principal was practicing her photography skills and took his pic. Carolyn

Love the hockey valentine - and thanks for the mention of FOUND - enjoyed reading your blog. It's a coincidence in itself that I stumbled upon it tonight. Mary
