Home Sweet Home Link Party & Valentine's Parties

Welcome to my Home Sweet Home link party!  My first ever.  I am sharing this post with some other amazing ladies and I am joining their parties.  

I will be joining Debra at her blog Common Ground  for her Vintage Inspiration Friday Valentine Party.  

I am also joining Laurie at he blog Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie for her Valentine Party.

For this special day I thought I would show you a vignette of some of my antique Valentines in my Great Grandfather's secretary.

  Here are some vintage calling cards and a Victorian era scrapbook.

I had fun sharing some of my vintage Valentines with you.  I can't wait to see what you have to show me in your Home Sweet Home.  Before I start the party, I will also mention two other fabulous blogs I will be linking this to, go and visit them : 
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home and Feather Your Nest Friday  at French Country Cottage.

Guidelines for Home Sweet Home Party:
Please link up your intended post and not just your blog.  Link up something from your home or your garden that you would like to share. (vignettes, food, makeovers, projects, vintage, photography, flowers, etc.) 
Please put a link or my button IN your post so others can find it and join in. The button is on my sidebar.   If you are new here I hope you will become a follower.  No Etsy link ups or direct advertising, please.  I have the link set to go on at 7 pm CST.  Please come back and join me if it is not here yet.  Thanks.:)
Now let's see your beautiful homes!

Pretty Valentines! I'm loving that vintage book too. Thanks for sharing.

RachelD said...

Thank you so much for dropping in at LAWN TEA! And your own blog is exquisite, with all the dainty and beautiful and heirloom items. My first Pink Saturday, and I used pictures of flowers not my own---we took the photos last Spring on our way to the coast.

I feel as if I've just been handed a beautiful, overflowing treasure box---all the picture-links on your site, and all the ones I will go back to at Beverly's. What a TREAT for a long, snowed-in weekend! We still have six or so inches on the ground, and I imagine your weather is a bit like ours right now.

Thank you for the visit!!


Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Hey there- stopping back to say thanks for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday! :)

Hi Sherry,
I love these photos! They are beautifully arranged as is the subject matter. A wonderful collection of valentines and Victorian scrapbook art, made even more special by displaying them in a family piece! I am sorry that I missed out on this party, but I will be sure to join in next time!
