My One Valentine Decoration and It's Old!

I don't do much decorating for Valentine's Day, I used to when Carla and Darcy were small but now I just put out this lone decoration.

An elderly lady I know quite well gave me this a few years ago, before Christmas she gave me some vintage cookbooks which I blogged about as well.   This is the sweetest old honeycomb Valentine, it stands about 9 inches high and was made in Germany, it's getting a little faded and I have to put tape on it to hold it together when I put it out but it's standing the test of time.   Wouldn't it be nice to go out and purchase a Valentine like this for your special someone...  The Valentine wish is on the little slip of paper stuck on the honeycomb. I'm going to link up with Vintage Thingie Thursday - hope you check it out,  I just bet there will be a few more Valentine posts this week..

To My Valentine
Muse bid the morn awake
Sad winter now declines
Each bird doth choose a mate
This day's St. Valentines.


  1. This is so super sweet!! I love vintage Valentines things...this is really a great piece. Happy VTT!

  2. I do not do much for any occasion any more. Why bother for just one. I love these little keepsakes tho.

  3. That's a really adorable piece. Lucky you.

  5. So sweet! There are so many part. Just too sweet!

  6. I think the older decorations are the best. I love the little girl.
