Longtime readers of this blog know I adore Valentine's Day, and so I like to have a week-long buildup to the day by featuring some of my vintage tea-themed Valentines and offering seven days of Valentine's giveaways! My favorite Valentine collected since last year is this large, 8 x 11-inch foldout card with honeycomb tissue accents. I love the sweet sentiment: "I pray that your Heart's Garden, May be set with Sweetest Flowers, That your Life be like the Dial, Telling none but sunny Hours."
And here's what the Valentine looks like in its three-dimensional pose. I'm puzzled there's not a tissue piece on the left front (I like symmetry!), but there's no glue or tape remnant indicating anything is missing. Odd, that, but I still love it!
Here's a close-up of the little girl taking tea in a flowerpot. That's my idea of a good time, taking tea and gardening all at once! (Don't you agree, Judith?)
I also have a good time giving away Valentine's treats, and first up are these cute pink cupcake skirts. I wanted to give them away first so the winner will have them in time for Valentine's baking, if desired.
Want to win? Just leave an "Enter me" to this post between now and 7 a.m. EST tomorrow and these could be headed your way! Good luck!
