Valentine's day has always been a special holiday in my family. My parents still give us gifts, and I still make my cards from bits of old papers and vintage book covers I've torn off of hardbacks heading for the recycling bin. (That actually was one of my jobs one summer-- removing the covers and bindings on old books so the pages could be recycled. I found some gems.)
I love this simple valentine card design by Rifle Paper Co.


  1. What a lovely card! I'm came across your blog from your comment on the 101 Cookbooks blog. I am also in Florida (Fort Lauderdale). My sister lives in Jacksonville.

  2. Hi! Isn't this crazy winter weather we've been having? It's so....cold! :)
