~ VALENTINE ANTIQUES ~

As I was cutting the grass today, I was thinking of the roses that I would like to share with all my friends out there in blog land for Valentines. But we have no blooms yet to give you all. So here is a photo of one of our rose oil paintings we have in our collection. I also would like to say Thank You for stopping by today.

We also want to share with you some of our Valentines vignettes and heart collection along with some antique cards that are three dimensional.



This valentine card of a ship got us into a small bidding war but worth the victory of winning. its late 19Th century a good size.

This Victorian fan was a good find and is a German die cut as same with all the others in our collection.

I like the little Victorian photos of cupid in its heart shaped wooden frame.

Here is a small collection of heart shaped pincushions on a primitive shelf we have.

This is a cute little heart shaped tin and little heart shaped pillows.

I hope you enjoyed our collection of valentines and until next time I wish you all a HAPPY VALENTINES...............Julian & Ray
Today I will be linking up for ~ SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY ~ hosted by Cindy and also for ~ VINTAGE INSPIRATION FRIDAY ~ hosted by Debra for a VALENTINES PARTY!!!!!!! And also over at ~ FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE ~ for FEATHER YOUR NEST FRIDAY hosted by Courtney

  5. Dear Julian and Ray, I have so enjoyed looking at your valentine collection. The three dimensional cards are very intriguing...I have never seen anything like them before. If I could steal something, then I should have the heart shaped wooden frame. Lovely.

    Happy Valentine's Day!!

  10. When I read you were cutting your grass I had to go back - I thought - where is she from! California! Lovely place - I grew up there many, many moons ago - rosy memories.
    Love your Valentine vignettes. I had never thought of decorating for this special day until I was inspired by so many wonderful bloggers!
    Hope you have a great day!
    So glad to find another Victoria Magazine enthusiast!

  14. You are cutting your grass?? Oh my that sounds lovely. It must be warm enough in SoCal for the grass to grow. You have some lovely Valentine's Day things too. Thanks for letting us take a peek!! Give those darling puppies big hugs from me.

  17. The Valentines are wonderful! The ship valentine is just amazing.
    I see from your profile that you are in Elsinore. I have so many memories of Elsinore my Aunt lived there in the sixties. I went to many Christmas dinners there.

  23. That ship is gorgeous. I've seen reproductions of those type of Valentines, but never the real thing. I'm jealous of your being able to cut grass!

  24. BTW, have you ever discussed how you managed to get rid of the followers number on your sidebar? I've been trying to figure out how to do that. Love my followers, but find that showing the number of followers a bit of a weird concept.

  31. Dear Julian,
    Thank you for your kind comments on our dog Hawthorne! He was such a joy in our lives that loss of him at the moment seems quite insurmountable. Your dogs are lovely! How old are they? Have you had them since they were pups?

    We'll check back again to see your new posts. Blogging is a great way to meet new people and to take your mind off your troubles!
    Peace & Plenty,
    Sheila and Sherrill
