Me A Queen?

In the mail this week came this pretty envelope addressed to Queen Esther! I love getting mail and this is so special!  It came all the way from Everett Washington that must be about 2000 miles from Jacqueline.  Now I wasn't really sure who Jacqueline was but I decided right then she must be a friend to take the time to send real mail and not just email!

I opened the envelope and inside was this sweet card

and hand written message
saying I was a Queen in Training
now I remember Once Upon a Fairyland

Also included this cute tag

and the only Valentine I received this year!!

  Thank you, thank you, thank you Jacqueline ...
you sure made me smile all week!

When do I start my Queen training??
Warm hugs,

I don't speak Italian just found this with Google.  Well we all know we can find the answer to anything with Google! Here are a few "love" words in Italian. Go to this site and hear each word spoken in Italian..and surprise your lover or husband! 

· gli abbracci — hugs
· affettuoso — affectionate

· i baci — kisses
· il biglietto d'auguri per San Valentino — Valentine's Day card
· i cioccolatini — chocolates

These vintage honeycomb valentines were purchased at auction and I paid way too much for them!

Here's another little tidbit about Valentine's Day:

The United States Post Office in Loveland, Colorado, USA, creates a special and one-of-a-kind cancellation stamp every year in order to celebrate Valentine's Day and the romantic name of Loveland, Colorado. The Post Office is now averaging greater than 300,000 Valentines remailed annually including 104 foreign countries and all 50 United States. The cancellation stamp sample shown here is from 1995.

Thanks for visiting me on PINK Saturday..now go to Bev's and check out all the other participant today.

"D" is for Dirt & a Vintage Thingie

It's Alphabe-Thursday over at Jenny's blog  and todays letter is "D".  I looked all through my photos and could have picked dog, donut, dumb, daughter..just about any "D" word
 but I found this photo and knew it had to be dirt!!

Oh my this is my sweet husband and it looks like he got mixed up in a coal bin!
Isn't he good looking! He would not be too happy if he knew I put this on my blog!

I think this would work for Vintage Thingie Thursday at Suzanne's - Colorado Lady he is rather old vintage!

Warm hugs,

Bing Crosby "Snow" from White Christmas

Yes this is the song that jumped in my mind when I shot these photos.


It won't be long before we'll all be there with snow


I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow


I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow


Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow
Where it's snowing
All winter through
That's where I want to be
Snowball throwing
That's what I'll do
How I'm longing to ski
Through the snow-oh-oh-oh-oh
Those glist'ning houses that seem to be built of snow


Oh, to see a mountain covered with a quilt of snow
What is Christmas with no snow
No white Christmas with no snow


I'll soon be there with snow
I'll wash my hair with snow
And with a spade of snow
I'll build a man that's made of snow

I'd love to stay up with you
but I recommend a little shuteye

Go to sleep
And dream

Of snow

Not a thing we can do about all the SNOW but enjoy it!!
Warm hugs to everyone,
