A Few Valentine Postcards For YOU!


I thought you might enjoy a few cute Valentine
 postcards from my collection.


I did not get a chance to scan any others before I left for Florida
but...the ones below I have shared previously
 and perhaps you would like to use them for art projects. 



I just love this one.
  It is signed on the bottom by Mr. Flea's great aunt Jennie.


I have been having some quiet afternoon fun here with Dad.
While he is working on his doll house...
I have been crafting with thrift store finds
 and Valentine odds and ends.


Here is a sneak peak at Poppa Flea's dollhouse.
He didn't really want me to show it until it is complete...
...but that will be a long time from now!
You can see how big it is...
...that is my Mom's large china cupboard in the background.
The dollhouse fills the table it sits on which is 5 feet long.

Tonight Dad and I are going to The Show Palace 
for dinner and to see Hairspray.
Life in this retirement community is calm and peaceful...
Perhaps I could get used to this!
