The local Books A Million store has a whole display of Alice in Wonderland goodies, and I decided this canvas tote bag would be the perfect gift to end on for this year's Valentine's Giveaway Week. The quote is one I love:
"Take some more tea," the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
"I've had nothing yet," Alice replied in an offended tone, "so I can't take more."
"You mean you can't take less," said the Hatter. "It's very easy to take more than nothing."
This quote combines my love of tea with my (slight) grammar nerdiness, so of course I love it. If you'd like to be entered to win, just leave an "Enter me" comment by 7 a.m. EST tomorrow, Feb. 15, and this bag just might be headed to your home! (Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you're the winner.)
The vintage valentine I'm sharing today is probably my favorite of those I've found online in the past year. It's got a little marking on the inner handle, and I strongly suspect some child of yesteryear did that, so I don't necessarily mind it. Adds authenticity!
This is another mechanical valentine, meaning a part of it moves. When you swing the teapot lid to the right, a cute little fellow pops up.
This valentine is unusual because it's signed with the names of two people, "from Russel & Thelma Traver." Brother and sister, I'm guessing? I hope you've enjoyed seeing my vintage valentines this week, and I want to wish you all a happy, happy Valentine's Day!
