Beautiful red and pink blooms

and the sweetest vintage valentine, edged in old lace,
help dispel the gloom of this overcast day.

A little cash surprise was included
in the valentines for the children

but,I folded them into heart shapes before
slipping them into the envelopes.

I made my special valentine a heart shaped confection.

then piped pink frosting around the edges and
added fresh strawberries, because I know
his appetite and heart are closely connected.
Hope you're spending a very heartfelt day with your loved ones.

Hi there,

I saw your comment on heather bullard's blog about the Nashville flea and I wondered if it was still alive and kicking? I heard from a dealer here in St Louis that they closed it down last year.
