Twyla on Tuesday - Happy Valentine's Day!

Dear friends,
Happy Valentine's Day!
I thought today I would share with you some
favorite Valentine postcards from my collection.
This first one is my Very Favorite!

I love reading these antique words of endearment.
The affection and care for one another was very
evident in their writings.  I always like the postcards
that are written on best!  I have even bought postcards
for what was written on the back or the handwriting.

A holiday to celebrate love.
A day to tell others you care.
A sweet day.

I've always tried to make Valentine's Day
  special for my children. They were remembering
just the other day some of the simple handmade
gifts that I made them for this holiday when they were little.
It really warms my heart that they remember
some of the those gifts even though they weren't
very expensive or artistic.


I hope each of you have a sweet day!
Have a very Happy Valentine's Day!
Love, Twyla
