Valentines Day 2014

It's the Beetles who said "All You Need Is Love" it could be a great song to sum up Valentines day.  Since this coming Friday is Valentines day I thought it was time to do a Valentines day post.

I found this heart shaped paperweight (California Poppy) awhile back it's a Robert Held piece.  I decided to save posting it for this post.  I had a chance to buy another heart shaped paperweight by Held last week.  When will I learn! I left it behind and then went back a few days later to get it but of course it was gone.

This collage is of hearts, you have to have lots of hearts in a Valentines day collage. 

The top left picture is a heart shaped postcard. 
The middle picture are heart ornaments from Ikea, when I saw them I didn't think Valentines day but black history month which is also in February.
The right side picture is a costume jewelry piece, a heart shaped brooch by Coro.
The bottom picture is three tin hearts side by side.

This picture is of two shelves in the Hoosier decorated for Valentine day.  The pink and white mugs are Fire King and the other dishes are Pyrex.

Lucille Ball is such an icon I have posted other items of her in the past.  The following are some new pieces I have found.  The purse with her and Desi Arnaz I believe is a scene from I Love Lucy.  The next two pictures are of ad's from Life Magazine the first one she did for Summerettes shoes and the other one Phillip Morris cigarettes.

I also found this Whitman's chocolates ad with another icon Elizabeth Taylor,
it was also from Life Magazine.

Mercy released this song written by Jack Sigler Jr. on April 1969.

Plans for the Wedding:
When: October 2014
Where: Heritage Schoolhouse for ceremony and reception.
Food: Hired caterers.
Flowers: Vases full of different color Dahlias on tables.

Something old is taken care of.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Have a lovely week.
