Violets and Valentines





The weekend is almost here...
...do you have plans?

If you are in the area....Earth Angels will be having their Heart of Winter event in Warwick, NY.
This year it will be held at the Warwick Antique Barn...
....antiques and art....what could be better? :)

I had hoped to be there but will have to be at the office instead.. :(

If you get there, I am sure you will not be disappointed....take pictures to share!

Good night friends!
Laura

Hi Laura, love the violets and valentines. I have discovered my old valentine scrapbook from the 50's and am dying to figure out something to do with the adorable images. I'm committed to reorganizing my studio space this weekend. It's in dreadful shape! Wish I could go to Warwick, but maybe another time. Don't work too hard!

Sorry you cannot go! Mom ordered a new little sweetie from Jen just this week!
Hope someone has pics!

Vintage cards, violets, two of my dear Grandmothers favorites. She lived to be 102 yrs. young, sharp as a tack, and spunky to the end.
I do not remember a year she went without violets. Bless her soul.
Thanks for the memory.
Bless You Laura

Haha! Laura won't be in your area BUT (and I nearly fell off my chair when I saw the poster!!) our local village is having a BROCANTE. Oh happy day and joyful me!! Will let you know what I find.
PS I need you to tell me more about your Anthropologie store... it seems that the UK and the US don't stock the same sort of items.

Violets and valentines -- a lovely combination. Wish I was anywhere near NY but am 10,000 miles away -- we are having dust and wind today -- the worse combination. Have a good weekend. Blessings, Tammy

Dear Laura,
What lovely vintage Valentines cards and I love violets. I always used to buy a little violet posy every February but I don't seem to see them anymore. I wonder why ?
I was clearing out the last things of my Dad's yesterday and came across my mum's 21st birthday cards, wedding cards and telegrams and an invoice for their wedding breakfast. I thought of you and according to Carole you tend to let out a little squeal when you find things like that.!! I did !!
I think that today is your last day of work, isn't it.
I hope that it's not too sad a day for you. I will be thinking of you. XXXX

I love the vintage valentines. Violets are such a beautiful, tiny flower. We have wild violets that grow in our yard in the summer, and I love them. I wish I lived near enough to go to the Earth Angel Artist barn event. It sounds lovely!

Laura,
These card's are so pretty and delicate.
There is something wonderful about
days gone by. They were sweeter in
so many way's I think.
