Valentine's Week Giveaway #6

Now this vintage Valentine is interesting to me for several reasons. First, you'll see what looks like a scratch or tear at the bottom, a curve through the bottom two hearts. This is apparently a tab designed into the Valentine so you can stand it up if you like. The other thing that strikes me about this Valentine is that it's a little sassy: "You eat my food and drink my tea, Why don't you feast your eyes on ME?"

This card was actually sent to Gail from Sharon, so I'm going to assume they were friends and this was really just an innocent little greeting. If a grownup told me, "You eat my food and drink my tea," I'd think they were saying I was a hog! And if a child said that to me, I'd tell them they were being too sassy and ought to have their mouth washed out with soap. (Something that never happened to me, but probably should have!)

Speaking of soap, I have some! Actually, I have some for one of you, and it smells yummy, yummy, yummy!

It's one of those mammoth-sized Rose & Green Tea soaps, and I estimate this'll last you until about, oh, Halloween or so. If you'd like to win, just leave an "Enter me" comment to this post between now and 7 a.m. EST tomorrow. Good luck!

I think the tab was to hold the card closed when you folded it in two. I had some Valentine's cards like that when I was a child. Thanks for making Valentine's week lovely!

The soap is so pretty, and its box is beautiful! I am always a sucker for a pink, green, and white combination.

I love any and all things related to tea, which is why I enjoy your blog so much. Today is my daughter's 23rd birthday, and I am taking her to lunch at our favorite tearoom. We've been enjoying tearooms regularly since she was 6 years old!

Have a great day. Thanks for hosting such a gracious giveaway.

Blessings,
Patti

Please enter me! I have the loveliest little porcelain plate with "guest soap" scrawled across it in gold leaf spencerian calligraphy that I have never had a soap worthy of. This soap would be worthy of such an elegant display!

Earlier today I was thinking that it would be nice to exchange valentines again with friends old and new and put them all in a "Valentine Box" like we used to as children. I did make a few today and mailed out. Alas, I sit here with my hibiscus and raspberry tea in my "brown betty" and my new/old tea cup given by a friend thinking about how wonderful that Green Tea/Rose soap would smell in the bath tonight. Blessed St. Valentines Day!! Janet E.
