Love Letters

I was getting out some of my Valentines decorations today and I have to say, I am a helpless romantic.


I think that is why I like to decorate with antique and vintage pieces.

I like to imagine a story to go along with a lot of the pieces I buy....


for example can't you just picture a handsome man sitting down at this very typewriter and typing out a love letter to his sweetheart?


Or a beautiful woman typing a love letter to her hubby thanking him for the beautiful flowers and chocolates.


 I can, so that is how this vignette came to be.  


I hope all of you get lots of love letters this Valentine's Day!
