A sweet little February angel, with a Valentine for you. I am trying to collect these - at least one for each month. I consider myself VERY lucky when I spot one at a thrift store!
Ceramics old and new, as a centerpiece on our dining room table:
One of my favorite antique postcards, and a cupid candle:
A few special pieces of the restaurant china I love so much, including two with hearts on them!
And here are a few precious Tasha Tudor illustrations for Valentine's Day. I'd love to attend this party, with a pretty hatbox to hold the cards for exchanging, and a pink cake! This illustration is from The New England Butt'ry Shelf Cookbook by Mary Mason Campbell:
And a card from Jenny Wren Press with another cake - heart-shaped this time!
Sparrow Post, another card from Jenny Wren Press:
Tasha Tudor is my favorite artist, author and illustrator. I have loved her work since I was a child, and I started collecting her books, cards and prints many years ago. I remain ever grateful that she left such a beautiful legacy of work behind that we may enjoy forever and pass on.
