Soon, we’ll be on to other things.  Spring is almost here!  But, for now…

Poets and authors chosen in my Valentine journal to express my thoughts much better than I could myself.

A few memories shared…

…sweet Valentine images from days gone by to illustrate my little book…

What fun I’ve had filling it’s pages. Many more to finish up next year.

And just a few more sweet Valentines from my tattered, old Valentine scrapbook from the 1930s…

…the aged manila paper is pretty fragile now.  I take care in turning the large pages…

…but page after page of undimmed colors smile up at me.  They seem like they might have been glued in place just yesterday…

…but they were not.  A loving hand, however, kept them ever so carefully--long before they came into my hands, so that they could be enjoyed today…

…and they certainly are.

Sending oodles and oodles of loving thoughts your way--
