Ruby Tuesday: A Valentine Post

Isn't She Lovely!
She sits beautifully on a banner than is at present hung beside my fireplace. Having been born on Valentine's Day, yes I am a cupid baby, I have collected lots of valentine goodies over the years - we just won't say how many years. ;)
I saw this banner a couple of weeks ago in my local fabric store and it was on sale. I decided I had to have it. The photo is painted on a heavy canvas in vivid colors. I just think it is so pretty. It reminds me of a vintage valentine from days gone by.
A Happy Ruby Tuesday Valentine's Day to Everyone!

This angel is the symbol of love, the heart is the ruby red of love this week. The cherubic Valentine bearer is ready to present this symbol to someone special. Sentimentality is on display up to that magic day February 14...

I thought she was truly vintage. What a surprise to find out she's modern.

She's looking so adorable with her heart, (box of chocolate??), the flowers and the dove.
All the symbols of love collected.
Happy birthday coming 14th.

Love this lovely cherub bringing us vintage Valentine's Day greetings.

Happy early Birthday, Carletta! As a Valentine's Day baby your favorite color must be red. ;-)

Just a guess.

What a nifty 'ruby' you've shared today! How 'kewl' to be born on Valentine's Day. I'm a February birthday too ... but later in the month so I'm a Pisces rather than Aquarian.
Hugs and blessings,

Happy Birthday!
