REDNESDAY



This is my newest Valentine planter, found at an antique store. It's proof that if you wait, the things you want will come to you, at your price. She's not in the best shape, and that's the only way I was able to afford her!

This is a valentine that my parents gave me when I was a little girl. Yes, the hoarding started at a young age!

A little card from my aunt and uncle.

I recently bought this one at an antique store, and it reminds me of Holly, who likes all things cute and fluffy!

But this is one of my most priceless cards!

I'll be sad to pack away all of this red stuff after Valentine's Day! What's next? Oh yeah, St. Patrick's Day, with all of it's greenery. I think I need to do some red shoppin'!
If you would like to see more reds, visit Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for a whole list of red lovers!

Just love your blog and your treasures.....so cute! I was cleaning this weekend and going through some things and found a valentine that my dad had sent to my mom back in the late 40's before they married while he was away in the military....my mom has since passed away, so it was such a treasure to find. I plan on doing a post on it this week!
