I kinda quit enjoying Valentines when I got too old to give them to my friends at school. I loved decorating the box to sit all lined up with everyone's on the shelf awaiting those adorable valentines that were available in the 1960's and 1970's. I would choose so carefully who got which valentine. I sure didn't want to give one to a boy that I didn't like that would make him think I did!
I would never haven given the above Valentine to an icky boy!
We never had any Valentine decorations at home when I was growing up. The only thing my mom decorated for was Christmas. But, I do have a few decorations in my home now.
Isn't this little fellow adorable? He sits on a cloth heart with a ribbon that says Valentine. I bought him at an estate sale a couple of years ago.
This one is my very favorite! Of course, it's a Pixie planter!
And take a look at this little miss with her heart shaped planter!
Why did they quit making such cute things? Whose decision was that?
In other news, it looks like my sewing machine may be history. My step-brother worked on it for 4 hours yesterday and couldn't fix it. He is going to try again today, but he thinks it may be the computer card in it and if it is, it will cost more than the machine is worth to fix. So I guess I am on the hunt for a new sewing machine! Hmmm... this weekend is my Birthday! That's a good reason for a new sewing machine isn't it!
