Lots of Valentine Ideas at Laurie's and Holiday Haven Valentine Parties!

I wanted to join the fun at Laurie's and Holiday Haven's Valentine party at Bargain Hunting (and Chatting) with Laurie and Holiday Haven and I needed to contribute an idea.  I had already posted photographs of my Valentine curio cabinet, so I decided to do something quick and simple for our guest room.  Believe me, this is the quickest and most simple display, thanks to a blog called The Graphics Fairy.  If you visit there, you will find these vintage cards and more, ready to print out on card stock and use for display or for other projects.  Thanks for joining me for this "lazy woman's" tabletop display and thanks to  and these wonderful blogs for making it possible and so easy!

I also want to apologize for arriving late to the Holiday Haven party.  Something happened to my memory!  Please do drop in if you get the opportunity!

What a great idea! The cards you printed are soooo cute, and I love the way you stuck one in your plant. This makes such a festive vignette. Thank you for linking it to the Valentine Party. Have a Happy Valentine's Day! laurie

Happy Valentines Day from one fellow Shih-Tzu lover to another! :)
Jorja and Harley kind of invade my posts occasionally - when they aren't getting into mischief.
Hope you have a lovely day!
