Be Mine ~ Happy Valentine's Day!



 Be My Valentine

These are my favorite Valentine's Day candy boxes.  
A wonderful flea market find.
I was instantly smitten!  I fell in love with the velvet ribbons and millinery flowers.  The flowers are tattered and the foiled edges have tarnished..... just adding to their character.  Both are dated 1909.  
If they weren't beautiful enough on the outside...........  when I opened them I got a wonderful surprise!  Old crepe paper ruffles!! that frame a vintage Valentine.  Toooooo sweet!
I use them to store both old and new Valentine's Day cards.

Happy Valentine's Day!
