My Vintage Valentine

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows.  For love is the beauty of the soul.  - Saint Augustine

Valentine's Day is just around the corner so it brought to mind people and things I love.  The most prominent love I have in my life is for my family.  I have a husband that has stayed with me through thick and thin, health and sickness and puts up with all my weird quirks.  I will love him forever.

My daughter which I have spoken of before in Life is a Strawberry Cake and A Smile has blessed me many thousand of times over with her humor, love and creativity.

As for things I love, my creativity is what I love the most.  Creativity has taken me down many paths and has opened me up to new ways of thinking, being and doing.  I seem to always be drawn to new expressions of crafts and art.  New ideas and ways of thinking.

I'll bet you have the same kind of love in your life that helps you to thrive.



  1. I also have in my life, an adorable husband, four children, and six grandchildren. They are all my happiness, as well as my bears.
    Happiness make beautiful creations.

    Excuse me, Leticia, if my english is not perfect !!

    Have a lovely week !!

    Big Hugs
