You are invited to join BARGAIN HUNTING WITH LAURIE   for a Valentine Party!  So show us your favorite holiday finds, flowers, candy or anything that makes you say VALENTINE BE MINE!  I'm also linking up with Pink Saturday with Beverly at How Sweet The Sound
 I don't have a lot of decorations for Valentine's Day...I did find a few things at the thrift store that I wanted to share with you.
I love to combine Red & Pink 

I know this cup has more of a Christmas decoration on it, but the colors are perfect for Valentine's also

I found this funny vase and since I love Maxine it came home with candy!

This apron and two cups were posted before but since they have such sweet hearts on they are again

This red mosaic bowl will shine with a candle in it

A sweet vintage valentine 

The most important heart is this wooden one made for me many years ago by my Dad

So check your mailbox like this little girl and see if YOUR sweetie sent you something

I think my favorites are the pink and red mugs and the Maxine vase. Happy Valentine's Day.

Maxine just puts life into perspective. Love your vase! I love the polka dot apron. The vintage card and that little girl going to get the mail are absolutely precious! Great addition to the V Party. Thank you so much for joining. laurie

I really like that apron. I love the pink/brown combination. I also love the blue sky in the duckie valentine. It's almost delft blue, very unusual.

Linda-You have darling Valentine's decorations. The last little girl is just precious and what a treasure you still have from your father! Did you know that a man actually writes the Maxine cards?? Kind of took some of the fun out of it for me :( Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Linda,

I like all your litte valentine pieces. But, of course, nothing comes close to perfect except that heart your dad made!

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day!

Hello - my favorite of all your Valentine's is the cup and saucer with two designs. Lovely.

I know you love the Valentine the most from your 'dad'.

Have a great Valentine's day.

So sorry that I missed you yesterday. It seemed like the day just ran away from me! But, with this being ♥Valentine's Day♥ what better time for me to stop by to see your Pink Saturday goodies.

It's been a long and dark winter up here near Canada so filling myself up with pink is my way on the weekend of chasing away the blues - not that blue isn't a nice color, too☺

I ♥ coming here. All the pink and all the girlie stuff just floods my brain and makes me want to do a happy dance right where I sit!

Thanks so much for sharing. After all, isn't sharing one of life's greatest pleasures?

♫Happy Valentine's Day♫
