Valentine Mantel

Valentine's Day Mantel.
The bunnie and chick on the left were a gift-swap with Viv last Easter.


Valentine from the 1930's.
See Laura's little Wiener Dog peeking out on the left?





1950's Glitter Valentine








And a box of chocolates from my Valentine.

He cleans the house, plants a garden, takes care of my chickens, takes Ms.Wilma to the vet, grocery shops and cooks and has never forgotten a holiday or celebration.
He worked 32 years on the Railroad and fathered our four sons.
He has survived 3 heart attacks, 6 by-passes the last time, and still does all these things, and still takes me anywhere I want to go, anytime.

He's the best Valentine, ever.
Love,
from Dorothy

Our sweethearts do so much for us...I need to show more gratitude for the simple things in life. It's nice to have a best friend that is always there...my rock foundation for my happy home. Your Valentine mantel looks so cheerful...amazing what a little color can do to cheer up a winters day.
