Hearts and Flowers

Valentine's Day is right around the corner 
and so many in the Land of Blog are featuring wonderful hand made hearts.

I'd love to show you some hearts I've been working on, but, alas,
my fingers have been busy turning pages of the books I've been reading
and crocheting squares for a baby blanket while I sit with Mr. Dragon.
DD (dear daughter) is back with us and Mr. Dragon's sister is visiting.

So, here are some Valentine postcards for you to enjoy.

Hearts and flowers and all things sweet and good.

Wishing you well and a JOY and LOVE filled week.

A big THANK YOU to Mary for hosting Mosaic Monday.

I love the old valentines - especially the little girl gazing through the window.
It sounds like you have a cosy day planned.

Those bring back memories of sending valentines at school. I loved getting a box of valentines and addressing each one for each of my classmates. The simple times.

Vee,
These postcards are wonderful. Your mosaic reminds me of what great artwork was created in each card from Once Upon a time.

What happy mosaics! Makes me want to craft this morning! I love pretty hearts and have a few old Valentines of my hubbys! Happy Monday! ♥

I love them all and they make a wonderful mosaic. The valentine on my sidebar is one I found in a box my mother had saved and was for me when I was about 3 from my grandparents.

I love all the holidays and I think they are even more fun because we share them in Blogland.
