Valentine's Day...The Day Of Love


                                                                        

Valentine's Day...The Day Of Love

I don't know why it is...but I think I've been in love with love from the minute I came into this old world.  I've always collected hearts and loved to have the word LOVE around me....There have got to be...hundreds of hearts in Round Knob Canyon...but most of them are so obscure ... you'd have to be looking for them to find them....But there are still a lot out in the open...like up the stairwell for instance....there are fluffy/shabby chic/heart pillows on each step going up the stairs on both sides...some steps have 2 small pillows on one side...and some are altered art pillows with skeleton keys and pearls and charms or this or that....OH GEE...I should have taken a pic so Kim could post it...

But I have signs through out our home with the word LOVE in them and hearts just here and there...I LOVE....LOVE.   :-)

I looked the word LOVE up in the dictionary...like I often do words I'm talking about...and IT said...Love IS:  a passionate affection, an intimate connection, a longing or desire for someone....But I don't think that's what love is AT ALL....
To ME...LOVE IS:  An absolute adoration for someone that goes so deep...it can't even be explained and it is a connection between 2 people that is not comparable to anything else ...
Guys who are IN LOVE with Sally on Monday and Teresa a week from Thursday...were not in love with Sally OR Teresa....and the same goes for the other side of the coin....

I've always been so SO stuck in the 1950's..and as soon as we got our first computer in 2002 and I discovered ebay...I started my vintage Valentine collection...but I only wanted Valentines from the 50's...YOU know the ones...the kids with the chubby cheeks and big dark eyes...and the girls with the curls...and the Turnips that talked and said, "Don't turn up you nose at ME...BE MY VALENTINE"
I guess in the last 11 years...I've collected close to ..if not more than...1,000 Valentine's from the 1950's and I have 5 big framed collages in our exercise room of those Valentine's and a huge scrapbook full...and then there are boxes of Valentines in the scrapbook closet.....
Just let me go to a flea market or yard sale and find some old fashioned Valentines...a little white crocheted doilie and a few old buttons and maybe a skeleton key and I feel like the Queen Of Sheba..  :-)

I'm so SO late today...and we have plans and I have tons to do before our plans....so I'm going to make this short today..and I'll make it up to you tomorrow..Do something special for that special person in your life today....and make it something out of the ordinary..

Thanks so SO much to all the new readers and for all the warm and fuzzy emails...you make my day!

Peace and love from the canyon and thanks so SO much...for stopping by...This has been a bird's eye view of the katydid and until next time...you are loved!!!
