Last year’s antique Bourbon roses..my favorites Madame Issac Perrier et Madame Ernest Calvat paying a visit. A link to years of my roses here. My husband’s working late today, my children miles away in their respective worlds.

But this weekend we will all be under one roof and celebrate three birthdays and Valentines. Heaven!

Title photo is an 18th century French prayer card “canivet pieuse”..the three little hearts  in une petit bateau tugged at my heartstrings! If you don’t see the image…click the post title.

Sometimes Valentine’s Day is a state of mind. Have a wonderful day!
