wears on its smiling face a dream of spring."

|Every year, our Father would give us each a box of Valentine Chocolates. |
Schrafts Candies was the brand he carried in his store. We put them in
the windows just as our Mother used to do.
|Heart containers of any size and substance make a cute collection!|
|Valentine towels and old handkerchiefs are shown here.|
|Vintage floral containers are pretty all by themselves!|
|A heart made of vintage fabric is handmade of course!|
|Look around the house, you'd be surprised at how many things have |
hearts on them.
|Now for the Valentine's Day cards we never had the heart to throw |
away. We are so glad we have them all! Placed in a basket, it is fun to
reminisce! Start saving right now! You'll be so glad you did! They are
all so beautiful.
|Here is Kathy's first Valentine's Day card! Still in beautiful |
shape and just as lovely as ever. It was from Kathy's Godmother
and her husband!
|Our Fresh Fruit Salad on page 61 is perfect for this time of year! |
1/2 cup of honey and the juice of 2 limes is the perfect companion
to the fruits available to us now. Be creative! In the above, we used strawberries,
blueberries, blackberries, a pear, a Golden Delicious apple, a McIntosh apple
and 2 clementines! Clear cut glass bowls enhance the colors of the fruit.
