Love's Wishes ~ A Token of Affection

 A Token of Affection

Valentine's Day is a day for love and romance.  
A day to show those closest to you how special they are. 
I like to give little gifts to my family and friends.  For me....  the packaging is as important as the gift itself.  I used old candy boxes and tins..... embellished with vintage ribbons, lace and millinery flowers.....  topped with vintage Valentines's Day cards.  
   These Valentine's Day cards are very old.... dated 1910.  I love the poems and the graphics are stunning!  I especially like the ones that were previously given and have hand written sentiments.

How lovely,Elizabeth. I do hope they appreciate the love that has gone into these beautiful tags. I think they are sometimes better than the gift. :) x
