Valentines Day is the best. valentine

 It’s all about love and the color red.valentine

Any day that involves the giving of chocolate can’t be anything but great. 


 Last but not least, there are flowers~ especially roses.valentine


  Need I say more? red-rose

~Here is the deepest secret nobody knows,

Here is the root  of the root and the bud of the bud

And the sky of the sky of a tree called life,

Which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide

And this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart

I carry it in my heart”  ~ E.E. Cummings-white-roses-



*I found all of these valentine’s in a box of photos in my mom’s attic, years ago.

  1. Hello, love your posts….reminds me of my work of arts way back in pre-school. i was the class artist up to the grades…love it….join me too in RT today.

  2. Lovely Valentines. Great saying.

  3. What lovely, old-fashioned looking Valentines! Very sweet!

    You asked a question on my blog, and I answered it there, but I thought I’d post it here as well, in case you don’t check back. I hope that’s okay, otherwise just delete. ;)

    English Setters are my favourites of all the setters – a totally different type of dog to a greyhound though, except the general shape. I think tall, narrow dogs are often fearful of slippery floors, especially when they get older and stiffer and their balance is less good. I’ve tried paw wax, but it wears off far too quickly to do any good. Some people keep grippy boots on their dogs while they’re indoors, but I’m not sure I like to cover their feet (the only part they sweat through), so to be honest, the best solution for us has been to use rubber backed mats everywhere, which are easily picked up for cleaning. Sid gets about using those throughout most of the ground floor. He’ll occasionally venture onto the tile if he’s motivated enough, but I’m guessing as he ages, that will stop. You could also try giving your dog glucosamine/chondroitin supplements to keep his joints supple – the ones with zinc, magnesium and/or MSM are the best. I use Cosequin. Hope that helps!

  4. I so love the old vintage valentine’s Romantic, nostalgic, and sweet, just as love should always be. Happy Valentine’s Day.
