Happy Valentines Day Friends! Free Graphic for You!

Happy Valentines Day friends, I thought I would share with you today a little bloggy valentine love. This is a very old photograph that I scanned that was taken by my Dad in the 1930's. Dad worked in the field of journalism  in the newspaper business (editor/journalist/advertisement)  when he was a young man back in "the day". Check out the center as there are 4 hearts cut from bread on a  H'orderves tray and hearts are one of the shapes around the outer circle.  Enjoy the Free graphic, feel free to copy and save to your computer.

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day and Happy Pink Saturday! Today I'm sharing a little bit of "love" with some Tin Art. This is an altered tin that once held Altoids  and was so much fun to create. Created for a swap and the theme is "vintage valentine" so I went with red and gold for a change. I can think of a zillion ways to decorate theses tins and that is part of the fun. We are only limited by our imagination or lack of,  but once you get going there is no stopping, lol. Don't forget to visit Beverly and all the Valentine beauties over at  How Sweet the Sound  and Honey over at  2805 for Potpourri Friday. Have fun visiting everyone! Stop by The Tablescaper  for Seasonal Sundays for some great blogs as well!
